Design work for the IMX-45 began mid summer 2000 after the IMX 40's massive success on the international racing scene in the year of it's debut. The IMX 40 is by now considered to be an optimum IMS cruiser / racer, winning the most highly respected IMS events, both in Europe as well as Australia and Japan. Having sold more than 80 IMX 40s within it's first year, a great demand was put on X-Yachts to develop a 45-foot big sister. The aim is to offer a strong, high quality yacht, which shall be easy to handle yet beautiful to look at. The cockpit, the rig, and the handling will make life easy and comfortable for the crew - in both a racing and a cruising sense. The IMX 45 will be offered with optional key elements for cruising such as an anchor box locker, deck recessed headstay furler drum, extra removable main cabin cabinets, larger tankage, sprayhood, and teak in the cockpit. Great attention has been put into studying and analysing the IMX 45's performance under IMS as well as under IRC.
