Built in 2005, XERES was designed by Niels Jeppesen of X-Yachts and launched by the award-winning Green Marine.
The 70’ (21.40m) IMX-70 sailing yacht was built as a high-performance cruiser-racer and represents the finest in modern yacht design and technology.
This luxury sailing yacht has benefitted from significant yearly investments in a regular maintenance program, as well as upgrades. Her teak was fully reconditioned, and she will see new electronics installed throughout 2022.
An exemplary yacht, which offers owners a wealth of options going forward.
