1996 X-Yachts IMX-38

Alameda, California

$74,900

From the design desk of Neils Jeppesen, the IMX 38 is a well thought out platform for inshore and offshore racing.  Hawkeye has a long pedigree of racing in the Bay Area under a number of rating systems.  In the fall of 2019 she had a new Trinidad Blue bottom job and a new rudder and bearings.  The sail drive and engine were also fully serviced in the fall.

She's easy to sail and accommodating to crew with a large open cockpit and wheel driven steering. This is a great boat to provide performance cruising with family and friends and to participate in the active Bay Area racing scene.

Manufacturer Provided Description
X-Yachts developed the IMX-38 as a modern, well designed, well thought-out, reasonably sized, one-design yacht suitable for offshore and day racing, built to a high standard at a reasonable price. The IMX 38 has been designed with a full, modern, racing deck layout, but rather than a tiller, she is equipped with wheel steering. The installation of a tiller is lighter, around 10 kilograms saved over the wheel system of the IMX. However, unlike IOR, where every ounce saved in the aft of the yacht allows the stern to lift, shortening the waterline and thus saving valuable rating points, the IMS rule measures the whole hull and such incremental gains are lost. The choice of rig for the IMX 38 was a modern three-spreader mast head rig which has a relatively large mainsail and smaller headsails than the traditional mast head configuration. The mast section, developed specially for the IMX 38, is strong enough to be able to withstand mishandling from a less experienced crew, yet light and flexible enough to satisfy the most experienced racing sailor. The IMX 38 is not just a racing yacht. Down below are all the cruising amenities needed to let an extended family cruise in comfort.
