Now offered for sale as her owner has bought larger, XPENSE can be found fully serviced and winterised in Southern Spain, making her conveniently located for Med’ sailing, heading back North or across to the Caribbean.


XPENSE was delivered to her first owner in Italy who sailed just 300Nm aboard her before my purchase in 2009. Having fitted the boat out for an Atlantic crossing, I then sailed XPENSE with the 2009 ARC, placing 32nd overall out of 159 cruising entries. Returning to Europe the following year, I then enjoyed local cruising around Denmark until 2013, after which I returned to the Western Mediterranean where XPENSE now lies. I have now decided to offer XPENSE for sale as I have recently taken delivery of a larger performance yacht.


With her beautiful lines and open transom, the X-50 will turn heads while cruising under sail or lying on her mooring. Two independent steering positions provide added safety and will allow the helmsman clear view ahead, even with a full race crew on the rail. The X-50 has driver appeal, is responsive at the helm with maximum control and balance and she is very, very fast.

The deck has been kept clear of ropes by leading the mainsheet and other controls under the deck and coachroof on both sides to dedicated winches. The throttle and engine control panel are at hand for quite and easy manoeuvring into the marina and the elegant folding cleats are further examples of exquisite details that make the difference.

Below decks, the X-50 is pure X-Yachts refinement – from first grade teak veneers, laminated curved edges around the navigation station and pantry to teak floorboards with inserted décor lines – a yacht built to fulfil the owner’s desire for elegance. Details such as recessed seals on lockers, smart and practical door restraints, high quality seals on the fridge and stainless steel hingers are further examples of X-Yachts’ well-known craftsmanship and technical innovation.

We wish her new owners fair winds and following seas.
