The IMX-40 is perhaps, the most winning IMS racer/cruiser of her size and type ever built. She also offers excellent accommodations for the yacht club cruise or offshore racing and she is chock full of amenities. She's great for a large family with three private cabins, sleeping eight total not including the main salon. Due to her superb construction, speed and easy sail plan she also excels in coastal and offshore racing. An excellent example of this great model....Langosta will surely fill your trophy case.
