The sophisticated yet sleek Spirit P40 coupé showcases the iconic lines and structural integrity synonymous with Spirit Yachts’ modern classic design in a performance cruising power boat.  As with the P40, Spirit Yachts has incorporated practicality as well as beauty into the Spirit P40c, offering the flexibility of either a luxurious leisure motor cruiser or stylish superyacht tender.

Of the Spirit P40 coupé, Spirit Yachts CEO and head designer Sean McMillan says, “We have applied the same level of attention to detail and technicality to the P40 as we do to our range of sailing yachts. She is perfect for lazy days in quiet bays, island hopping in style or as a supremely elegant superyacht tender.”

Displacing only 4.5 tonnes, the P40c is powered by two Yanmar 260hp inboard engines, which deliver a top speed of 40 knots and a cruising speed of 29 knots.  Spirit’s lightweight wood/epoxy construction method and performance design, results in an impressive sports boat with effortless handling.

Following a test drive of the P40c, Richard Booth, project manager at Superyacht Tenders and Toys commented, “The P40c is a beautifully hand crafted boat, it is superbly finished using the highest quality materials and it oozes style and sophistication on the water. The ride and handling are smooth and responsive. The boat glides effortlessly across the water and it was a joy to helm. This is a boat to be truly proud of and is the definition of a luxury superyacht tender.” 

The cruising option layout includes an open-plan forward double-berth with en-suite, including separate shower and an electric flushing toilet for those overnight trips to secluded bays.  With dining space alfresco in the cockpit, there is the option to specify an enclosed or semi-enclosed wheelhouse.  The cockpit galley is well equipped with a cooker, along with a sink, fridge and ample storage for crockery and provisions.

Fully air-conditioned down below with a fitted 220v generator, the P40c is perfectly designed for cruising on long summer days in the glistening waters of the Mediterranean.  A bimini, spacious sunbeds, aft deck shower and swim platform with fold down swim ladder on the transom provide added cruising benefits.

With a ship to shore radio and alternative accommodation layouts available for added crew berths, the P40c is also designed as an elegant and sophisticated superyacht tender.  Ideal for trips ashore or as a support boat for a larger classic superyacht, the P40c is guaranteed to turn heads wherever you go.
