The 40 Signature Series is a new concept superyacht, for a new generation of yacht owner.
Built by prize-winning Italian boat-maker Rodriquez Cantieri Navali, she was designed by Architectural firm Norman Foster and Partners which means the boat turns typical yacht building on its head.
Designed with maximum space, light and views in mind, Foster and Partners have reinvented the basics to create an innovative and ultra-contemporary space. With square, clean-lined furnishings and acres of windows, it will appeal to those who want maximum amounts of sunlight.
The unique benefit offered by the 40 Signature Series is its fractional ownership program – a lifestyle scheme that includes all the benefits of sole ownership but without the hassle, and at a fraction of the cost. YachtPlus has created a fleet of these craft and marketed them under the program, which limits 8 people per vessel. Each shareholder has guaranteed access for 34 days per year with all the trappings of a luxury yachting vacation catered for.
Accommodating up to 12 guests and 7 crew, the boat cruises at 16 knots thanks to two 1,044 kw Caterpillar C32 diesel engines. The 41-metre (135 ft) yacht offers 5,737 square feet of useable living space (with extensive outer deck area including a submergible beach deck, a grand staircase and separate jet ski storage) so there’s plenty of opportunity to relax and enjoy the panoramic views.
