Here you will really see how it comes that X-Yachts was able to sell almost 20 units of this yacht model in advance – targeted for racing at a relatively high level, even before she proved to be a winner.
Saloon The saloon features two longitudinal bench seats separated by a large table hung on a strong stainless steel bar on the centreline. It has been designed so the port-hand leaf and the central part lift off and can be left ashore offering more storage space for sails during races.
Cabinet sections/book shelves are optional, and can be taken out for optimum racing.
Large offshore user-friendly U-shaped galley with plenty of storage space. All drawers run on ball bearing tracks. Wooden interior craftsmanship and quality of international high style and standards.
The navigation area to port provides plenty of room for all the tactician’s equipment. Fold down the cabinet’s leaf specifically to install your notebook inside with easy connection to yachts’ sailing and navigational instruments.
And you find additional space for sailing/navigational instruments, the yacht’s standard electrical switchboard as well as for the optional shore power switchboard. Drawers underneath the chart table run on ball bearing tracks.
Niels Jeppesen about the IMX 45
"When designing the IMX 45 the goals were set high from the beginning. The deck layout, the sail and rig plan should not only suit the experienced and demanding race sailor, it should also make the owner capable of converting his racer into a summer holiday cruiser with a minimum time and effort. The X-Yachts design team decided to go for a high standard interior integrating many fine details and using only high-level quality materials. First class teak veneers are applied on first class marine plywood and another feature is the laminated curved teak trims surrounding the tabletops".
