The X-Yachts X-43 is a modern cruiser racer from the board of Niels Jeppesen; a designer with over 2 decades of experience producing robust, stylish and comfortable performance yachts. A well-proven design with 169 hulls produced over a 7 year production run the yachts have proved immensely capable whether they are cruising or racing around the cans.

With her third owner the X-43 MAGIX has been based on the west coast of Scotland for the last 10 years with her current owners enjoying the attributes of a performance cruiser which allows you to passage plan at 7kts. Wintered ashore annually during the current ownership she has enjoyed professional maintenance any upgrading. Reluctantly offered for sale as her owners look to downsize she is offered with a comprehensive inventory including highlights such as:

Topsides vinyl wrapped 2019

This was another trendsetter for the marine industry and represented the start of a new generation of yacht design. Her hull lines were created by a pure downscaling of the stunning IMX 45. The X-43 was smoother, heavier and stiffer than the competition. All the boats were fractionally rigged and all featured built-in hull portlights

Production Years: 2003 — 2010 – Number Built: 169


“There has been a proliferation of new racer/cruisers in the 40-foot range. Some builders have returned to the genre after focusing on more cruising-oriented designs, but the Danish builder X-Yachts has been consistently turning out strong, stylish, comfortable performance boats for 25 years. Drawing from this deep well of experience, Niels Jeppesen’s new X-43 was reported to have all the ingredients—excellent performance, comfortable accommodations, high-quality construction—that people look for in a racer/cruiser.”
