Sunseeker presented the brand-new 40 Metre Yacht at this year’s PSP Southampton Boat Show (10-19 September, 2010).
The new Sunseeker 40 Metre Yacht incorporates all the best elements of the 37 Metre Yacht but also enjoys other exciting new elements like balconies and increased exterior deck spaces.
The stern of the 40 Metre Yacht has an increased rake which gives an impressive streamlined profile and features a sharp, ocean-going bow. Passengers enjoy steps which curve inwards on each side of the hydraulic central bathing platform, providing a true superyacht feel when boarding. The main deck cockpit is also significantly larger with an extended aft deck, allowing for a number of customised layouts to suit each clients requirements.
Significantly, the interior of the 40 40 Metre Yacht is across three decks and offers the option of balconies on either side of the main deck saloon, and on one side of the master stateroom – opening up magnificent seascapes and bringing in more natural light.
Extra space is also achieved on the skydeck, where the removal of the fixed raised sunbathing area forward allows the floor level to be extended, providing significantly more deck space and more flexibility for highly customised layouts to suit personal use.
The 40 metre yacht has had a number of unique custom modifications, including an extended wheelhouse deck layout which offers greater flexibiity and the addition of an upper deck stateroom created as a result of having all four crew cabins on the lower deck. The skydeck layout has also been highly customised in order to maximise space and to offer a combination of formal and informal seating, while the main deck saloon has an oval feature bar positioned aft to serve both the saloon and main aft deck cockpit.
