The smallest yacht in the range, the Xp 33 is designed for pure sailing enjoyment. This model is a high stability 30-footer
which benefits from the same advanced construction techniques as the larger yachts in the Xperformance range for superb sailing performance and build quality.
Smooth lines, ample buoyancy both fore and aft, a plumb bow for maximum waterline length and subtle chines create a hull which is fast on all angles of sail. A custom-designed double spreader aluminium mast is offered as standard, with a carbon rig available as an option. Non-overlapping head sails, a single line head sail furler and retractable bowsprit increase the sailing fun and racing potential while ensuring sail handling is stress-free, even when sailing short-handed.
The Xp 33 deck layout and cockpit is designed to be highly functional. A rod linkage steering system connects to the single rudder underneath the cockpit sole and enables the tiller to be positioned aft, behind the mainsheet. This allows the skipper to easily control the boat when cruising, or to communicate smoothly with the main trimmer whilst racing. The composite tiller is fitted as standard with a Spinlock adjustable extension.
The cockpit is wide and spacious. Aft of the main sheet track there are molded foot chocks integrated into the cockpit sole, with two opening lockers giving access to a generous storage compartment for fenders, mooring gear and similar. Forward of the main track, wide benches offer a comfortable cruising ride and room for race crew manoeuvres. Six Harken winches are fitted as standard, of which two may be easily upgraded to top racing spec.
The Xp 33 may also be easily adapted into cruising mode, with an optional electric anchor windlass and removable stainless steel anchor arm. A self-draining anchor locker is fitted as standard, with gas bottle storage in the port aft cockpit.
The Xp 33 is offered with a classic three cabin interior layout. The main saloon includes two comfortable sofas and a removable central table with integral storage, while the engine is easily accessible thanks to a removable GRP cover beneath the companionway. Aft are two symmetrical cabins, while forward there is an optional comfortable and private triangular berth. A single heads with shower is forward of the saloon.
A practical galley lies to port with GRP worktops, a two-jet gimbaled gas stove and stainless steel sink. To starboard a forward-facing navigation station includes the yacht’s electrical switchboard as well as space for additional navigation and communication equipment.

The Xp 33 is a high stability 30-footer which benefits from the same advanced construction techniques as the larger yachts in the Xperformance Range for superb sailing performance and build quality.
In designing the Xp 33 hull, our main focus was on creating a yacht with fantastic all-round performance, in contrast to many modern sportboats which rely heavily on downwind performance in breezy weather. Within its very first season, the race results demonstrated that the Xp 33 is seriously quick, with overall victories under international rating systems.
The design process of the Xp 33 involved intensive testing of different hull shapes using Velocity Prediction Programs, as well as anticipated IRC and ORC ratings. The final Xp 33 hull form was the best performer all round in windspeeds of 5-20 knots, with a wide and powerful transom combined with maximum waterline length and a low freeboard. The shape is consistent with the race-winning Xp family, but adjusted to suit her lighter displacement.
When sailing upright in light airs mode the Xp 33 has narrow, low-resistance waterlines to slip through the water in even faint breezes. As she heels, she gains stability thanks to her increased waterline length, wide stern and high ballast to weight ratio,
for high performance sailing in heavy airs, on reaching angles and under the generous asymmetric spinnaker.
