2016 X-Yachts Xp 38

Somerset, Massachusetts


The XP 38 was launched in 2011 and quickly developed a world wide following. It was nominated for "Boat of the Year", and is a first class racer/cruiser of the highest quality. 

X-Yachts are designed by sailors, for sailors. Every X performance yacht is created to perform superbly in all conditions and in all sail configurations. Many of the very same factors which make the XP models race winners, also ensure that they are enjoyable fast cruisers.

This two-owner boat has had the best of care, maintenance, and upgrades and must be seen to be appreciated.
