The Xp 50 is a high-performance cruiser-racer which offers impressive pace and ease of handling. The longer waterline length of this model allows additional cruising features to be incorporated, as well as increased straight-line speed. In line with the rest of the Xp range, the 50-footer utilises epoxy infusion build processes for improved stiffness with reduced weight, a carbon keel structure for maximum safety and ultimate stability, and a precision-moulded composite keel with iron fin and lead bulb giving a high ballast ratio. A choice of standard aluminium or optional carbon rig packages, and standard or deep draft keels, allows Xp 50 owners to optimise their yacht for cruising or racing, short-handed or fully crewed, inshore, offshore or bluewater sailing.
The Xp 50 bowsprit features a removable stainless steel anchor fitting, neatly integrated as standard below a removable GRP cowling. Alternative options include a carbon bowsprit with or without integrated anchor fitting, for setting large asymmetric and code sails with ease, or a flush cowling. A flush anchor deck hatch conceals a large 1500W anchor winch and also provides access to a separate sail locker with optional crew berth. Concealed control lines run aft with a ‘Maxi-style’ mainsheet system for a clutter-free, functional and comfortable cockpit area. There is a choice of biminis and two-pole sprayhood with opening window, together with the Xp folding cockpit table for flexible entertaining space. Liferaft storage is integrated under the cockpit sole, while the transom garage accommodates a 2.3m inflatable tender. An electrically operated transom door also forms a teak-topped bathing platform with stainless steel swim ladder.
