cruising sailing super-yacht / deck saloon / carbon / 6-cabin
40.4 m (132'06")
DESIGNER COMMENTS ON 40.40m SAILING YACHT
Structure will be optimized by Alex Shimell of Gurit in glass-carbon epoxy sandwich composite. Sarp lamination team will vacuum-bag and post-cure this light and stiff structure with their dedicated craftsmen and engineers. Stability is boosted by a hydraulically operated very high tensile steel fin keel carrying a huge lead-antimony T bulb. Draft can be reduced from 5.8 meters down to 3.5 meters. To enable this shallow draft, we have opted for twin carbon rudder blades operated from symmetric helm stations. Lucky owners and captains will be able to steer this agile creature only with the strength of their own muscles, no external power source required. Naturally hydraulic autopilot is always at hand.
A tall four spreader carbon mast with in-boom furling will produce the driving force. Code sail and staysail furlers are of flush type, as the vessel will sail with the blade most of the time. Sail control systems are thoroughly state-of-the-art with hydraulic furlers and hydraulic captive winches.
Everything is joy stick controlled from two helm stations. The control and command system is set up such that one can sail the yacht with a remote unit, even an I-pad.
Interior styled by Stephen Huish will house master suite and three guest cabins in the after part of the hull. A raised salon having all round view is above the engine room with an office and navigation station tucked in. Forward part of the hull descending from the salon houses another dayroom, galley, laundry and nice sized crew quarters. Every available volume is arranged for storage and access mainly to systems.
