The Chandlery Yacht Sales
This listing is for a new yacht, built to order at the X-Yachts factory in Haderslev, Denmark.
The X-Yachts 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.
Light, strong and stiff, X-Yachts are built like no other production yacht. With the introduction of the X-65 in 2007, X-Yachts started to infuse hulls for performance yachts utilizing epoxy resin. Epoxy infusion construction offers fantastic control over the laminate allowing it to be optimized to maximize strength and stiffness, while saving weight.
In the Xp 55 all weight saved is used to increase the yacht’s stability enabling the crew to have a more relaxed time and to feel safer and more comfortable. The fact that the hull is cured and baked at high temperatures for almost 24 hours, not only optimizes the hull material properties but also minimizes the risk of the darker colored hull surfaces to suddenly start posturing, losing the surface finish.
With over 10 years of experience building epoxy infused yachts, X-Yachts took the decision in 2018 to build all models using this technology, one of the only yacht builders to do so.
A standard clear anodized mast and boom is standard on the XP55. This yacht can be upgraded to a carbon-fiber mast and boom at an additional charge.

The Xp 55 deck layout has been designed for ease of sail handling and manoeuvres whether cruising or racing. Standard features include a below deck furling drum (with furling line led back to one of the four cockpit winches). The longitudinal genoa tracks are supplied with adjustable genoa cars. All halyards and control lines are concealed below deck and led aft to the four large self-tailing winches supplied as standard.
The mainsheet is attached to a single pad-eye at the cockpit floor and lead aft via the mast/halyard channels below deck, where it may be easily handled using the cockpit winches. For racing purposes, a windward tweaker block system can be deployed for both genoa sheets as well as the mainsheet to enable very narrow sheeting angles.
The Xp 55 features three spacious cabins, a generous galley, a choice of double or triple heads, and two owners' cabin layouts.
The elegant Xp 55 interior includes new optional brushed oak wood furniture with walnut floorboards and new fixtures and fittings throughout. Teak furniture with teak and holly floorboards is standard.
