    High spec IMX-40 from 2001 that has been used privately and never raced. A very different proposition from most of her heavily-raced peers. The ultimate ‘go-faster’ cruising boat, or just perfect for club racing campaigns.


    Originally launched in July 2001, BIG SMILE is almost unique amongst her peers in that she has not been used for racing. Configured for fast and enjoyable family cruising, BIG SMILE has been lovingly maintained by her owner and is now only offered for sale to make way for a larger X-Yacht.

    Her highlights include:-
    Carbon fibre mast and boom
    North Kevlar sails
    Carbon fibre helm wheel
    Harken winches including electric halyard winch
    B&G instruments including 20/20’s at mast and chart plotter at chart table
    Up to 10-berths in 3 cabins including saloon and fold-out pipecots in twin aft double cabins


    With the X-412, X-442 and similar models selling in high numbers, the development department found time to maintain the X-Yachts’ reputation in the world of racing. The IMX 40 was introduced as an IMS winner, sporting a carbon mast, boom and wheel as standard and introducing the ‘magic wheel’ backstay adjuster. The design won the European Championship as well as forming two-thirds of the Spanish team that won the Sardinia Cup.

    Production Years: 2000 — 2004
    Number Built: 99


    “This is the fourth Niels Jeppesen-designed X-Yacht we’ve sailed in the past few years. Based on those experiences and the design brief that called for an "IMS cruiser/racer," we thought we had a handle on what to expect. We figured it would have the galvanized steel grid support glassed into all X-Yachts, which makes them strong and stiff--check. A fast hull form--check again…

    …From the dock, the first thing we noticed was the IMX 40’s 4.5-foot freeboard. The bow is nearly plumb, the entry fine, and the knuckle sits just out of the water. The cabin top is low and unobtrusive, partly because of the high freeboard. The carbon spars are built by Nordic and painted white, and there’s discontinuous rod rigging and three swept-back spreaders on the runnerless fractional rig.

    For the benefit of the hiking crew, there’s a nicely rounded hull-deck joint and the toe rails run no farther aft than the chainplates. The stern is open to the 66-inch carbon-fiber wheel, and a transom locker can be installed for cruising storage and seating, or left behind as a dock box when racing…

    …An underdeck split-mainsheet system leads just forward of the wheel. There’s an ingenious and effective internal backstay system: a 4-to-1 cascade leads below deck to a 15-to-1 drum that provides 60-to-1 power with a single control line emerging on deck on a swivel cam in front of the wheel--a good position for the main trimmer to reach.

    With a crew of five onboard we fired up the three-cylinder Volvo diesel to motor out from the East Greenwich YC before hoisting a full main and blade. The optional roller furler was still attached, making the headstay tension slightly soft, but nontheless, we sped upwind at 7.5 knots. The boat is stiff and was barely affected by the wind-driven chop. The high freeboard kept the leeward rail out of the water even though we were sailing with 20 degrees of heel. With a full race crew on the rail and proper headstay tension, this boat would be a rocket in anything over 10 knots…

    …The sightlines on the boat are excellent and the wheel height was good for my 5’10" size. The footchocks were well placed, and the helm sensitive—it’s an easy boat to keep in the groove… In the right hands, whether your shorthanded for a weekend trip or racing in a blow, it’ll get you where you’re going quickly.”
