Double the fun. The Xc 38 offers superb performance in an easily handled package, ideal for doublehanded sailing. This model was the second yacht in the Xcruising range to be named European Yacht of the Year in the Luxury Cruiser category, on its launch. The judges were particularly impressed by the spaciousness and luxurious levels of comfort in the interior.
Under sail, under motor or in harbour, the Xc 38 may be easily and safely sailed double-handed, yet still offers ample space both above and below decks to accommodate guests and family.
The Xc 38 offers a clean, uncluttered deck layout thanks to under-deck halyards, with all lines led back to the coachroof. Deck hatches are flush mounted, the anchor is concealed within its own recessed foredeck locker, and stylish teak surfaces are fitted as standard.
A German-style mainsheet is within easy reach of the helmsman for rapid responsiveness and complete control. The maintrack is also moved out of the cockpit to give a clear route from stern to companionway. Furling genoas and self-tacking jibs make for stress-free headsail handling, plus the option of davits to ease launching the tender.
The Xc 38 sets new standards in its class for both the spaciousness of the interior and high quality of finish. A two-cabin layout creates a roomy feel throughout, with comfortable double cabins and a large saloon.
There is a large and luxurious heads with separate shower. Opposite a well-equipped U-shaped galley there is a dedicated forward-facing navigation station, with specifically designed storage aft for bulky items.
