New boat Xp 50

It is on the water and I find it absolutely gorgeous, one of the nicest looking boats around:

This boat seems to have absolutely brilliant performances: In light winds with 6K wind the boat can make 8K speed and that is extraordinary because light wind sailing is not the area where this boat will excel.

This boat belongs to the family of "heavy" boats, boats that have a big Ballast ratio, in this case almost 50%, with big drafts and all weigh in a torpedo. This means that this boat will excel in strong winds and heavy seas where that ballast ratio can be put to good measure. One for the Sydney-Hobart, or to cruise fast and safely around the world, and for that, just look at this galley:

Not a naked racer for sure... What a boat
