The interior is a classic confection of contrasting tones, textures and surfaces, full of visual and tactile treats, set off to perfection by the huge areas of window, which will fill both the main deck and accommodation areas with daylight.


“We’re introducing several new timbers on this boat,” says Verey. “Macassar ebony has been selected for the dining and coffee tables, for example – cut to produce a unique starburst grain effect to the coffee table. We’re also having the main deck’s walnut sideboard doors specially made in a herringbone grain pattern.”


The yacht’s principal decorative scheme features horizon- tal-grained satin walnut bulkheads, wenge flooring on the main deck, and walnut flooring on the sky deck. Signature pieces include the impressive, full-height, etched-metal mural by Christofle in the dining room, and there is an eye- catching abstract created from hand-painted and lacquered panels on the forward bulkhead of the sky lounge.


“We have also used various granites and stones – actually they’re lightweight, stone-faced aluminum honeycomb pan- els – as contrasting features in floors, bulkheads and work- tops. The ‘mocha crème’ limestone in particular has a real visual warmth, and contrasts beautifully with the Bisazza mosaic tiles on the floor,” adds Verey. “It looks wonderful.”


captain’s cabin is also situated here adjourning the helm. Power comes from a pair of nine-ton MTU 12V diesels, which will propel her to speeds of up to 22 knots. Two 80kW generators share the machinery space, where the automatic fuel handling system is sensitive not just to the needs of the engine and generators, but to the trim of the hull as well.

The 40M has been designed and built using some of the most advanced technologies and techniques seen in boat building today from state-of-the-art Computer Fluid Dy- namics ensuring the even most intricate of detail is consid- ered prior to any tooling being made, to the highly devel- oped resin infusion process to produce the hull and entire superstructure which provides significant benefits to vessel weight and rigidity so improving overall performance and efficiency.
