Don’t let the dramatic styling of this recent import from South Africa fool you: the Xquisite X5 is also eminently practical, with a wealth of interesting details, including boarding ladders amidships for use by sailors moored alongside; solid handrails, as opposed to wire lifelines; and hull windows that are slightly recessed to protect them from being scratched by fenders and other objects. Underway, the boat boasts a high bridgedeck clearance to minimize slamming in a seaway and an anchoring system that can be deployed from the helm with just the push of a button. The cored hull and deck are infused, with E-glass and vinylester and epoxy resins. Xquisite Yachts, xquisiteyachts.com
