We have been working on the XP-19 project for 3 years now, this year the first boat out of a form was completed and brought to Lake Dümmer. What can I say, it sails perfectly! It's no problem that the bow is a bit out of the water. The boat just sails great, it accelerates well, runs a good height, is stable in the water .The steering is so light that even in a stiff breeze it can be controlled with two fingers, and also sails to windward very easily.
The in- and outside of the XP-19 was developed/built with great care = Ram protection in front; high quality jib furler front Bartels; Stern and bow basket; light but very stable rudder system; large cockpit with elaborate marine cork. Spacious, usable interior for the size of the ship with plenty of storage space; a well-thought-out, stable lifting keel system and high-quality interior.
The XP-19 was tested by Yacht Magazin a few days ago. The testers were thrilled with the sailing behaviour. They also found design, the room layout on and below deck and the overall concept to be a success. The detailed test report will be published in Yacht Magazin at the beginning of July.
