Boat tests

The X5 is a total success. This “turn-key” catamaran is attractive with its rigorous specifications, fall top of the range equipment and exacting quality. The ease of use by a short-handed crew is undisputable, and the watchkeeper does not need to panic at the prospect of changing a headsail or reefing the main.

Video: Boat review of the Xquisite X5 catamaranIn 2010, the Dean 5000 became a big hit at the La Rochelle boat show, but then the actual launch of this model got bogged down with the various problems at the yard which eventually led to its demise. Phoenix Marine, a major South African manufacturer (in the composites fabrication and shipyard sector) bought the rights to the plans and asked architect Rudolf Jonker to take up the project and design a completely new boat within the existing lines: the Xquisite X5. We were able to get a first look and try her out in some great weather conditions.


Phoenix Marine Manufacturing, Xquisite Yachts' South African partner, has just moved the production line dedicated to the Xquisite X5 catamaran. The new factory actually allows three boats to be built at the same time, therefore the customers’ demands can be met more rapidly.Xquisite Yachts in Multihulls World latest issue
