Knoxville, Tenn. - Sea Ray found a way to marry the spaciousness of an aft-cabin design with the sweeping profile of its acclaimed Sundancer® family in the spectacular 40 Motor Yacht. From state-of-the-art technology to meticulously crafted details throughout, this sport yacht offers the best of everything, inside and out.
For lovers of bright, open spaces, the 40 Motor Yacht is flooded with natural light from graceful, curved windows bonded right into the fiberglass. Handcrafted wood trim, gleaming finishes in cherry, faux-granite countertops and Ultraleather HP seating create an elegant and inviting interior. Guests can relax on the port and starboard sofas and enjoy the standard 26-inch flatscreen LCD TV or Clarion® system with six-disc CD changer. A movable hi-lo salon table with stools and a handy breakfast bar provide ample dining space, while the well-equipped galley keeps plenty of cruising provisions stored close at hand.
Perhaps one of the most striking features of the 40 Motor Yacht is the sizeable aft master stateroom. Its queen-size bed with innerspring mattress houses a storage compartment large enough to hold a full set of golf clubs. There's a full-length locker for hanging clothes in addition to a dresser drawer unit and storage shelves. A new 20-inch TV and remote DVD are standard in the master stateroom. To maximize space, the starboard head and shower are split by a vanity, enabling two people to use the facilities at the same time.
In the forward stateroom there are twin beds. The starboard bed easily converts to a full-size bed by simply inserting the standard filler cushions. Guests get the red-carpet treatment with abundant storage and private access to the forward head compartment with dual doors for entry from the salon, too.
Since the aft deck and helm are on the same level, the captain remains included in topside socializing. Sheltered by a standard fiberglass hardtop with 20" x 20" hatch and overhead lighting, the cockpit has a custom helm seat, companion bench, portside seat and, if you like, an optional removable aft bench seat. Directly behind the helm, the 40 Motor Yacht sports a full-service wet bar with icemaker or optional refrigerator for entertaining. Optional air conditioning keeps the cockpit cool and comfortable, no matter where you travel.
The control station looks like something you'd expect to find on a high-tech aircraft with SmartCraft® diagnostics, SmartCraft VesselView, illuminated weatherproof switches, electronics and LCD systems monitor. Sea Ray® Navigator, a user-friendly touch-screen chartplotting system, is available as an option on the 40 Motor Yacht, as is a bow thruster for confident docking in less-than-ideal conditions. Smooth, reliable power is supplied by twin 8.1 S Digital Throttle and Shift Horizon MerCruiser® gas inboards (T-370 hp). A wealth of other standard features including standard generator, water manifold system, patented underwater exhaust, fiberglass stringer system and more proves that Sea Ray puts as much emphasis on what you don't see as what you do.
A wide range of upgrades and free membership in the Sea Ray Owners Club make the 2008 40 Motor Yacht even harder to resist. After all, with the perfect marriage of spaciousness and incredible styling, Sea Ray's 40 Motor Yacht means the honeymoon's never over.
