Easily handled by a minimal crew, she is in excellent condition and has had expert maintenance, including refurbishes in 2014, 2015, and 2016. She has comfortable accommodations for her owners plus 4-5 guests and two crew in a separate cabin. 

Fitted with 1,200 gallons of Diesel and a 250HP main engine, twin water markers, and ample cold storage, Double X was built to sail a 2,600-mile range. Although equipped with a 25 KW generator, her four photovoltaic modules, a Watt & Sea hydro-generator, two large battery banks, four inverters, and redundant 24-volt chargers provide ample power without any emissions.
