Hull

Deep-V

Combining a deep-V shape hull that is manufactured of the best military grade aluminum in the market with aesthetic design enabled by state-of-the-art fiberglass, the new DFNDR 9 takes you through the roughest seas to new adventures and experiences that go well beyond conventional.

To truly put our latest model to the test, we set off on a windy day and drove through the rough Baltic Sea via its most remote outer islands from Finland to Sweden. XO crew packed our gear and set the drones and cameras to cover the journey between the Nordic capitals Helsinki and Stockholm.

With an XO you can easily cross the heavy sea comfortably over 30 knots cruising speed. Click here to watch the adventure on YouTube.
