New Model: San Juan SJ40FB

This particular make, takes me to the roots of my passion for boats, when as a young bloke I used to see boats in the local harbours and then go at home and search in the various magazines to find what the mysterious models those with no information on the hull or topsides could be. This is how I discovered San Juan yachts, when in December an extremely wonderful lobster boat was gracing one of the local marinas, but this boat had no means of identification. Browsing in the Internet did not prove successful at first, until I stumbled on a message board discussing lobster boats and there it goes, I finally discovered what the nice lobster boat was, the San Juan 48! Here is the latest model from this youngish ten year old builder, founded 1998, in Washington. The latest SJ40 FB for Flybridge, another stunning traditional cruiser from SanJuan presented during the last Miami show, sitting in the range between the 38 and 48 Flybridge. The general interior arrangement shows an open plan layout with a master cabin forward, a galley to port and a spacious head to starboard. The cockpit with its two sun loungers sitting in the centre of the boat is also a spacious affair.
