NEW X-Yacht : Xp 38


The eagerly anticipated Xp 38 is set to debut late summer 2011.
Following on from the Xp 44, the Xp 38 will encompass the same ground-breaking performance characteristics whilst maintaining the cruising qualities X-Yachts customers have grown to expect.
The new Xp 38 is a resized model of the Xp 44 which is still under development and yet sold in more than 20 copies – 5 months before planned launch.
The Xp range will be built with the use of advanced technology and can be characterized as trendsetting in the yachting industry.
Performance
The new Xp 38 has been developed utilizing the latest version of a Velocity Prediction Program to create a hull and rig package with a high ballast to weight ratio that offers high stability under a generous sail plan.
Together with her sail-handling design, the Xp 38’s performance may be easily enjoyed by a full race crew or whilst sailing short-handed.
Safety and Speed
X-Yachts’ world-class build quality is taken to a new level in the Xp models, using the latest epoxy E-Glass vacuum infusion process for maximum strength, stiffness and durability.
The famous X-Yachts steel frame structure has also been developed, with the new Xp designs featuring a carbon/composite keel grillage that ensures hull impact resilience and rig stability for safety and longevity.
Practical style
The Xp 38 features innovative space saving solutions such as a sliding chart table allowing for either a classic forward-facing navigation desk or an aft facing table, creating extra space in the saloon.
Apart from that, the standard Xp 38 is equipped and built with
  • vacuum infused hull
  • carbon composite keel frame for stronger but also lighter construction
  • discontinued rod rig
  • hydraulic backstay tensioner
  • composite steering wheels
  • under-deck furling forestay
  • twin-angled foot chocks for perfect helming position, but flush when not in use
  • removable bow anchor roller and optional carbon bow sprit
  • teak in cockpit
  • flush mounted skylights
  • folding mooring cleats
  • 30 l hot water container
  • shower in the cockpit
  • water cooled cooling compressor
just to mention some of the features.
