Form meets function with the Xp 50 deck layout. The exterior balances clean lines and minimalist style, with usability, safety and security. Attractive teak decking is fitted as standard, with the option to extend the teak to include side decks and coach roof. The stylish finish is complemented by concealed passages for halyards, sheets and trim lines, together with flush fittings and details such as the folding Nomen mooring cleats.
Ergonomics for both cruising and racing have been carefully considered, with the centre console functioning as a handy foot chock for crew, sitting on the cockpit benches, whilst the width of the bulwark varies along the length of the yacht, to improve the comfort of a 'hiking' race crew and ensure aesthetically pleasing lines.
The Xp models were conceived as true dual-purpose yachts. The guiding principle is, that the Xp 50 should be highly competitive when sailed with a full crew, but is also easily handled by a couple or a family. It should be optimised for racing, under major handicap rating systems, but equally suited to a relaxed weekend cruise or a longer blue-water passage.
Key to this adaptability, is the multi-functional bowsprit, which offers four variations. The standard fixture is a GRP cowl, with integrated anchor fitting. This allows for asymmetric ‘Code’ sails and similar to be flown from a fixed tack point, whilst ensuring the steel anchor roller with electric windlass are easily accessible.
Two other popular options are a carbon bowsprit, in either white painted finish or clearcoat black, with the additional option of an integrated anchor fitting. The sprit enables a full sail wardrobe of asymmetric spinnakers and reaching Code Zeros to be carried, particularly when racing under IRC. The anchor fitting is neatly concealed under the sprit. A fourth option of a plain GRP cowl is offered, particularly for boats which may race under ORC. In addition to all of the above, a symmetric spinnaker pole can be carried for further flexibility.
The Xp 50 interior is available in a three cabin layout with twin shower and single shower options, which both benefit from exemplary use of light and space.
The innovative Xperformance sliding chart table allows the navigator to be seated either forward or aft-facing, or for the chart table to be slid aft to increase the side berth seating.
There is also a fixed chart table option which includes additional storage drawers, with both featuring an easily accessible electronics control panel and deep bookshelves above.
The secure galley is moulded in one piece for minimal weight, and is arranged in an indented ‘U’ configuration for safe working at sea. A gimballed three-jet gas cooker and cool box are fitted as standard. Options include an 85-litre front-opening fridge and microwave oven.
The comfortable saloon includes ample seating in a sociable ‘U’ shape, while the saloon table also incorporates concealed bottle storage.

From an early age, Gregâs father taught him the value of a dollar earned from hard work and shared with him the joys of a life on the water. These two things would form the framework for Gregâs life.
After graduating from NC State with a BA in Communications concentrating in mass media, Greg satisfied a bit of pent-up wanderlust. He lived in different coastal areas of the United States from San Diego to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, surfing, sailing, and working fulfilling yet obligatory jobs in his field of study before defiantly choosing to stick with his love of boating as his lifeâs work.
Greg muses that he is âjoyfully unemployable in any other endeavorsâ, and he works hard every day to help buyers and sellers make the right decisions. Part broker, part counselor, he finds fulfillment in a very demanding work ethic that requires constant attention to the needs of clients as they make changes to their life and lifestyle, moving in or out of boating or making changes to their choices within their boating life. Whether itâs the clean slate of a new build or the acquisition of the perfect pre-owned boat, Greg revels in the excitement and participates joyfully in the range of emotions that are the buying and selling of the single most worthwhile pursuit in this life: boats.
He holds a USCG 100 Ton Master Captainâs license, a Florida Yacht Brokerâs license, and he is a Certified Professional Yacht Broker and member of the Yacht Brokerâs Association of America. As an owner of both power and sailboats, he can be found quite often on the waters of Charleston Harbor and beyond.
