San Juan 40

In the upcoming June issue of Power and Motoryacht, we’ll give you our full boat test for the new San Juan 40, but here’s a little info to whet your appetite:

The San Juan 40’s classic lobster-boat styling doesn't mean she's confined to classic lobster-boat speeds. The builder reports she runs at 30 knots WOT with a pair of standard turbo-charged and intercooled Yanmar 6LY3A-ETP diesel inboards. To control the machinery at slower velocities, the 40 comes with standard joystick-controlled bow and stern thrusters.

But the 40 is about more than just performance; she’s also about looks. The Gregory C. Marshall firm took great effort in blending traditional aspects like her tumblehome stern with more modern features like the flying bridge. Her looks and speed come with a MSRP of $1,050,000.
