The six-meter-long Daysailer XP-19 from Germany is designed for sporty trips with one or two sailors. It did well in the test, was fun on the road and also impressed with its technical details. The boat is manufactured as a small series in Serbia.

Andreas Buddes' goal was to build a keelboat for one or two sailors that sails like a dinghy. For deck and cockpit, he took over the shape of his previous boat, which was produced according to the construction formula of the microtonner, and designed a more modern hull with a steep stem, chines and lifting keel. In cooperation with a Serbian shipyard, the prototype was created from which the molds were removed. The price of the new ones should be 26,000 euros.
