I Sold The XS

I said good bye to the XS yesterday, It went on the back of a lorry to Southampton docks, and now on its way to a new home in the San Francisco bay area. Now what to get next!

I had a quick ride in this on the 2006 Poker Run. It was lovely!

As you already have a 'homeosexual' pointy thing perhaps something less pointy with a flybridge may complement that pointy thing

Think uncledekka has found something to replace the XS with and at 200K considering what it is seems quite cheap, except to run it will be

I think this would go well with the big Yanmars or 525's and ASD8's, but I'm sure you've seen it already. What are you looking for? Berths? Heads? Speed? Petrol or diesel? Budget? Length? Open or closed?

Have another look at the last photo

Always liked the look of those, hate the practicality of the wings, but should go very well with relatively reasonable consumption for the speed?
