We looked at many alternatives on our travels but a visit aboard an Xc50 in the US Virgin Islands, was the catalyst for the big change. We were fortunate to be able to buy the first one, of the second generation Xc42s in 2015. With Furlerboom & washing machine of course!
The Xc42 fits our lifestyle perfectly and has met our expectations in every way. She’s the perfect size for us. Robust and responsive, yet easy and undemanding to live with.
