Based on the amazing success of the Xquisite X5, the joint venture between Xquisite Yachts and Cape Town based Phoenix Marine announces the arrival of their new model, the X5 PLUS.

‘We’ve have been working on the X5 PLUS design for quite some time, and the first two hulls are already in production. When we started to work on this project our main goal was to improve the sailing performance as well as to incorporate every design feature and new idea based on the feedback from all our existing X5 owners.’
The use of modern materials and build techniques, such as vacuum infusion and composite bulkheads allowed for a significantly lighter build of the X5 PLUS. The 16 tons light displacement, and the much more powerful sail plan guarantees fast and comfortable passages.
The new bow design offers modern looks, while the overall length of the new model is 53’ with the additional bow sprit which is part of the very powerful sail plan of the new X5 PLUS. All the lines are led to the protected helm station and all three headsails are installed on electric furlers, allowing to sail the boat completely single handed in any wind angle or sail plan.
Many other improvements are based on the experience building the X5 over the past 6 years, as well as on the feedback received from all the Xquisite owners after they sailed their X5 thousands of miles:
Besides the great sailing performance, probably the other most important improvement is regarding the electrical system. The new generation 22kWh Li-ion batteries and new high-tech solar panels from Germany are standard now with a total of 2,3 KW high efficiency solar array, which work much better in low light conditions as well. The new panels are built with tempered ‘walk-on glass’ making easy to work on the coach roof, and the new 24V electrical system includes high output alternators, battery chargers and 6kW inverter. This very powerful electrical system allows for fully electric cooking with induction cooktops and electric oven in the galley, and a new electric grill setup incorporated into the wet bar in the cockpit.
The new air conditioners using inverter technology are more silent and more efficient and could be run overnight without the generator, while the large opening portholes on the front salon windows, as well as the much larger forward facing deck hatches above the beds in each cabin offer great natural ventilation throughout the entire vessel.
There are more handholds throughout the boat, and the new electric TV lift in the salon is pivoting for better viewing angles. Waterproof wireless phone charging at the helm and nav station eliminates the need of charging cables. The overhead rain shower in the cockpit is complimented by a pull-out shower, and the shore water connection on the transom helps to avoid contamination of the water tanks with marina water while at the dock. New and much improved multizone Fusion Apollo sound system with more speakers and subwoofer offers great sound quality. The cabinetry got new hardware with soft closing drawers and hinges as well as new latches, while the headroom in the salon was increased by 4 inches. Several different color choices are available both for the interior and exterior.

The build time of a new X5 PLUS is almost a full year at 40,000 working hours, so the company only builds four boats each year customizing each yacht to suit the owner’s preference. Based on the success of the previous Xquisite X5, the first nine hulls of this new model are already sold, which means the next available hull would be delivered in 2023
