Fully ORC-optimised and updated example of the famous one design IMX 38, COS I XTY8 is a perfect boat for competitive racing or easy fun sailing without breaking the bank. Fully serviced and with a huge sail wardrobe for all conditions.

Comprehensively upgraded and refitted in her current ownership, her highlights include:-
Overhauled engine with very low hours

Overhauled and re-wired mast
Replacement standing rigging
Navtec backstay adjuster with textile stay

The good looks of the X-382 were obvious from the moment she emerged from the production mould. She was so appealing that the idea was born to create a new racer/cruiser that would perform well under the dominant IMS international handicap rule.
