New Model: Cayman 540WA

Cayman is making 2023 an important year by presenting two new models in a space of about six months, and after launching the new S600 in February has in the end of July also delivered its first 540WA.  Two different new models; the S600 being all about the Cayman sport yacht identity which made the fortunes of the name in the noughties, and this new 540WA seventeen meter walk around sport yacht a continuation and following of the successful 400WA which debuted in 2021.  Again a design of Ferragni, the designer of all latest Cayman models, the 540WA is a sport yacht walk-around centre console, with opening side-bulk heads and infinite seventeen meter deck space.  The galley and living are all outside on the main deck, just behind the triple seated centre console helm station with a sun-pad located both to fore and aft.  Opening side bulk heads to both port and starboard sides extend the space of the aft deck.  Down below the Cayman 540 WA is offered in two or three cabins layout, with hull one featuring the later version, which features a master room forward, and two guest cabins at midships, and a relaxing L-lounge sofa in between the fore and aft cabins.  The Cayman 540WA is powered by twin Volvo engines with IPS pods drives, and or a speed lover triple Mercury 600hp hidden under the sun-pad outboard set up.  Hull one was fitted with the standard and small for over twenty tons in running order 480hp engines, which according to initial reports reached a top speed up to 28 knots.  Bigger Volvo's 600hp and or 725hp power are available, these two being more in line with the power a sport yacht of this size and displacement deserves.
