New Model: Sunseeker 40 Metre Yacht

Thanks to one of the forum members at YBW we can show you exclusive pictures of Sunseeker new flagship, the 40 Metre Yacht. The Poole boat builder effort in always presenting bigger sizes has to be appreciated, considering the fact that the last months at Sunseeker where very difficult indeed. But that's not to say the builders order book is empty, as in the bigger super sizes of 24 metres plus its if filled as ever with a total of 58 in build boats averaging 28 metres in length in as of this year. The 40 Metre Yacht is a three deck super yacht based on the 37 adding length to the hull, and a much more cleaner profile. Personally I always think the 37 free board looked a bit low with the three deck super structure above appearing bulky. The 40 Metre Yacht follows the last year presented 130 Predator with the balconies concept. The 40 Metre having two; in the master suite on the main deck, and another on the saloon. With the standard plan accommodation is for a total of 10 guests in five staterooms all with private heads. Master suite is located on the main deck, and two identical VIP are located to mid ship. Crew berths is for eight members below, plus a double captains cabin behind the helm on the upper deck. Power is for two engines with a total of 6362hp which should give a maximum of 24 knots. Range is for 1500 nautical miles at 10 knots.
