Military-grade aluminium hull with a GRP deck, this 2021 XO DFNDR 250 (DFNDR 8) is about as cool as you can get on the water! We have literally not come across a boat with this much capability and cool factor in the one package. It’s actually difficult to know where to start!


XO is one of the original brands from Finland who pioneered the cutting bow, deep V hull concept which is fast taking over the adventure and day boating scene today. They have always been unique by building aluminium hulls and combining them with GRP deck and fit outs making them a luxurious adventure boat. The 250 DFNDR takes this concept to the next level and beyond! Think Porsche handling with Land Rover vibes and you are getting close to the XO250. This is a boat you buy when you have owned plenty of boats before and know what you want from your fun on the water. If you’re an experienced ocean enthusiast with really cool ideas on how to enjoy your weekends then you need to look at this boat.


Cruising speeds in choppy water between 27 – 32kts and a top speed of 43kts+… this boat really hauls!


If your mission is to get you and your mates out to that offshore surf spot or diving or just plain exploration, then this is the boat for you. She’s ideal for loading up your toys for the day and making fast transit speeds while enjoying every second of it.


This boat has been very intelligently fitted out by her current owner who’s now ready to move to a larger model. Custom dual axel trailer, full boat and engine cover have kept her in NEW condition. At the helm, your are treated by dual Simrad displays with Radar, Autopilot, Chartplotter, Transducer with fish finding capability plus VHF, stereo and phone charging glove box. The driver and passenger are locked into custom bucket seats with suspension and only an arm reach away from the electric drinks fridge. Drive around in full convertible style with the wind in your hair or roll down the removable clears and enclose the cockpit in wrap around clears for winter warmth.


The decks are walkaround with soft flexiteak and there are two large deck lockers that open up for all your gear. The foredeck even has tiedown points in case you need to lash items on deck. The fun doesn’t end however as she’s been fitted with the brand-new Mercury V8 300Hp with the most beautiful sound on start-up and a wonderful but not intrusive purr while underway.


We could go on all day about how much fun this boat is and how cool you feel while on the water but it’s best you just watch the video we have made to get a better feel for it. You won’t be disappointed.
