The XO 360, new flagship of the range, will be revealed at the Düsseldorf Boat Show in January

Life on deck

Practicality comes high on the priority list on deck and in the saloon where an asymmetric deck layout and sliding door adjacent to the helm allow the wheelhouse to be a good width without compromising ease of passage from stern to bow.

Initial renderings show an open-backed cockpit with bench seating either side – great for driving the quad bike on to from your archipelago island but not so great for keeping kids safe. No doubt there is the option to have a transom gate as seen on the smaller 270.

Inside the wheelhouse XO claims that the seating layout allows six passengers to sit facing forward safely, which is important when the top speed with the largest engines is in excess of 40 knots.

Prices start from £287,400 inc UK VAT for the twin 300hp version and you’ll pay just over £10,000 more for the larger 370s.

It’s safe to say that we’re a little bit excited about this boat, especially with the Axopar 37 nearing completion. We smell a twin test in the air.
