A stunning looking X-Yacht, this X-442 is only with her second owner, both have been fastidious. Her sleek lines and racing heritage make for a nice fast cruising boat. Easy to handle, especially with the Furler Boom system and yet comfortable enough for six or more to cruise thanks to the generous cabins and two heads and showers. Very Solid build as you would expect of this generation of yachts and none more so than X-Yachts with their integrated Galvanised chassis linking the keel to the rig.
