Riding a Rocket: The Xp 38CruisingWolrd, 16. maj 08:20
If X-Yachts had asked my advice on boat names, I'd have recommended using an uppercase "P" for the Xp 38, since it's a sailboat that tacks sharply toward the performance end of the cruiser/racer spectrum. After sailing the boat last fall with the Boat of the Year judges in Annapolis, Maryland, I might've also suggested an "L" for lively, an "S" for spirited, or simply a "D" for delightful. All would apply to what the company refers to as its "Pocket Rocket."
X-Yachts has been building fast, well-constructed racing sailboats in Haderslev, Denmark, since 1979, and along the way, the boats have attracted the attention of cruising sailors who appreciate a good turn of speed.
