Designer/builder Brian Bennett wanted an affordable sport boat that was technical, superfast, and long-lived; one that appealed to sailors from junior to the experienced; and that fit into a 20-foot container for international travel. Crewed by two or three, the VX features a plumb bow, a lightweight but tough planing hull, carbon-fiber spars, flat-top mainsail, and chines that run from transom to bow. In the right conditions, the VX can hit 20-plus knots.
The 19-foot VX One Design is available with three different sail plans to cover a wide range of skill levels. It was SAIL Magazine’s Best Boats 2012 Winner in the Performance 30ft and Under category.
