Hi Giovanni

There is nothing free to read XTF format that I know of.  The format is 
freely available on triton's website. The format has become a standard 
de facto. However it is still difficult to get a really standard xtf 
file in between the manufacturer of sonar processing software.
My advice would be

1) knowing the name of the application that acquired the sonar data.
2) have a quick look at MBsystem which is the only sonar processing 
software free as free beer!! It won't read xtf but you might find a way 
to find a common denominator.

I ll be glad to know how you proceed as I might be of better help if you 
are more specific (acquisition software, sonar....)
