2021 X-Yachts Xp 55

The Xp 55 is the flagship model in the Xp range, and raises the bar for performance sailing yachts. This model offers an unbeatable sailing experience combined with luxurious levels of comfort. Since its launch in 2013 it has impressed reviewers and sailors alike, with test reports praising the boat for its ‘dinghy-like feel’, fast pace, and the ability to sail the boat rapidly and easily double-handed. Utilising the same hi-tech construction methods as the rest of the Xp range, the Xp 55 has an impressive ballast ratio for her size for controllable, stable high performance sailing.

Although the largest yacht in the range, the Xp 55 is designed for ease of short-handed cruising. Concealed control lines are led aft, placing all sheets, halyards and trim lines to hand. A below-deck furling drum and longitudinal genoa tracks with adjustable cars are fitted as standard. The mainsheet is led aft for ease of handling from the cockpit, while a windward tweaker block system can be deployed when racing for both the main and genoa. The Xperformance bow options include a carbon sprit of fixed tack point for setting a 240m2 asymmetric, while the sprit may also neatly house an anchor arm. The helmsman’s position may also be customised with a choice of five pedestal options, including an extra-large instrument mount with potential for a dual control throttle. The electrically operated folding transom can be deployed to create a teak-topped bathing platform with swim ladder, while the aft ‘garage’ can accommodate tender dinghies up to 3.0-3.2 m in length, with dedicated liferaft storage under the cockpit sole. There is also a bow locker with electric anchor windlass.

The Xp 55 interior offers an exceptional level of customisation, with a choice of layouts – each with three spacious double cabins – and finishes. The master cabin includes an ensuite, which may be fitted to port with the double berth central, or the double berth can be fitted to port with the ensuite forward, for direct access to the forepeak and sail locker. The aft symmetrical cabins may be fitted with optional pipecots, and there is a choice of a single second heads and wet room accessible from the main saloon, which also allows for an extra spacious galley, or twin ensuite heads for the aft cabins.
