|The revolutionary mxNext|
|The mx-Ray ripping along downwind|
The Mx-Ray was well ahead of its time and was met with enthusiasm by speed hungry sailors. Soon hundreds had been sold. Along the way Vlad met Mark LeBlanc, a visionary boat builder with a keen eye for design and a passion for fast boats. Their collaboration was very successful, but after the Mx-Ray business was sold the two pursued separate goals. Fast forward a dozen or so years and Vlad has the lines for SpeedDream drawn. The initial drawings were for a 100-foot version of SpeedDream and renderings of the sleek, futuristic boat were circulated around the globe. LeBlanc was intrigued. Would it be possible to apply the SpeedDream100 concept to smaller boats? Would it be possible to develop an Mx-Ray successor along the lines of SpeedDream? Discussions began and soon the first few sketches of what would become mxNext were drawn.
