When Xp 38 hull #1 took to the water in August 2011 on Haderslev Fjord at X-Yachts annual "open house" floating boat show, it marked the consolidation of the exciting new Xperformance range. The second member in the fourth generation of X-Yachts' world-famous performance cruisers, the Xp 38 follows on from the hugely successful Xp 44, which has been nominated for the European Yacht of the Year Award after acclaim by the international yachting press.
Head of design and development Niels Jeppesen commented at the time:
"She is exactly as we hoped for, stiff, fast and very easy to manage. She felt very slippery, accelerated quickly out of tacks and was just a delight to steer and sail".
