A new launch for 2021, the new Solaris 40 is the smallest in the Solaris fleet but has all the DNA of her larger Solaris Yachts sister ships. Like her bigger sisters she is designed by Javier Soto Acebal. Amongst the yard’s latest designs, the hull features the dreadnought bow, forward chine and full beam carried aft with a soft chine, so overall a powerful hull with high form stability. Her innovative deck layout offers the helms person unrivalled visibility – the twin wheels being set well outboard, sail handling in common with the rest of the range is a breeze with all controls lead aft below deck to a bank of jammers and winch leaving them clutter free. The standard sail plan incorporates a self-tacking genoa and conventional main, the self-tacking track is recessed into the foredeck. Both genoa sheet and mainsheet are lead aft via the jammers thus close to hand for the helms person.
At anchor, she benefits from the drop down transom with stainless swim ladder allowing easy access to the water/dinghy. Below decks, the well-appointed Roseo designed interior is in keeping with the usual Solaris clean lines.
Similar to the Solaris 44, there is plenty of internal volume creating a bright and airy interior. With a classic L-shaped galley to port, there are a number internal configurations and a choice of interior finishes. The 40 shares all the same structural advantages of her larger sisters, such as composite main and forward bulkheads, fully laminated bulkheads with no inner mouldings, E-glass and carbon fibre longitudinal and transverse structural floor beams – resin bonded to the hull, stainless steel mast base for the keel stepped rig above the keel and full-width spreaders with composite chain plates.
Confidence is the new Solaris 40 – the market obviously approves with over five yachts ordered off plan prior to the official launch.
