Smart, Green and Timeless
A 40z is easier to dock than a 29-footer, or to park
than your car, using Volvo-Penta’s IPS joystick control.
One can even hover in place to have a picnic, watch a
race or deploy fenders and docklines with DPS, the
magically smooth and quiet dynamic positioning system.
Put the throttles down, experience finger-tip control
with instant, predictable response…converse at
decibel levels under 80. Stay dry, even in the aft cockpit
seat. 40z is so much fun to drive, you’ll wonder why
you ever considered anything but this timeless Doug
The 40z’s 1. 3 nmpg at 30+ knots is about the same
fuel efficiency of a Grand Banks 41 trawler doing 9 knots.
Slow the 40z to trawler speeds, and mileage nearly
triples to 3. 8 nmpg with a range of 1200 miles.
This first-in-class performance, ease of handling and
fuel efficiency with half the carbon footprint…underway
or when being built… results from stronger, longer
lasting and lighter pre-preg, vacuum-set and oven
post-cured epoxy composite construction in the USA.
Time a factor? 40z’s low profile, 12' beam and lack
of varnished wood on deck mean less maintenance,
access to more slips, easy trucking, less bridge-waiting
time and only 5 minutes for a washdown.
No surprise…owners find they are spending 3x more
hours using their 40z than they did on their previous boat.
