XCELSIOR

ABOUT XCELSIOR

Designed with a fine bow, medium displacement, and a relatively wide beam, the IMX-45 sails well on all points of sail. It is rare to find a boat that can compete at the highest levels while still offering the accommodations and ease of handling desired for family cruising.

Xcelsior is quite possibly the best IMX-45 ever commissioned and she is the only such model being offered for sale in the US. The owner went to great lengths to make certain he outfitted the boat with the best equipment available every step of the way.
