Re: The new 40 a First Look

Looks good, but will withhold judgement until seeing her in person. I definitely like the design of the helm station (more than the Helia with the split between the wheel and the winches). Interesting to see Garmin as the vendor providing electronics. It seems like the big builders are moving away from Raymarine.

Not sure I'm a fan of the sail drives being behind the rudder, but it does perhaps provide greater sound isolation with the engines that far aft. At least the hatches to the engines can be opened from the cockpit without having to stand on the aft-most step. The sugar scoops also look like they could do with another foot or so of length.

There are some reasonable quality internal and external photos of Hull no 1 in Paris on the website of Spain’s Marina Sport.
