SAY Carbon Yachts is proud to announce the sale of the first units of their new top model. The first SAY 42, delivered in July to Ibiza, found a customer as the second one as well. Karl Wagner, CEO of SAY Carbon Yachts, comments: „ This yacht is an impressive example of the new era we started several years ago at the shipyard. I am very proud of the big sister of our successful SAY 29.”
The new SAY 42 is the latest model from SAY Carbon – stylish, sexy, comfortable and of course just as fast and efficient as all other SAY yachts. The previous 42 has been completely reengineered and given a design that makes her a modern, timeless sports yacht. Even in many years her look will inspire. Karl Wagner: „Her styling, developed by KET from Munich, is a piece of art. There is a clear connection to automotive design. The SAY 42 is, as I would say, a supercar on water.”
The standard propulsion package consists of two Volvo Penta engines (V8 6.2 l) with a total output of 860 hp. This engine power combined with light construction and innovative naval architecture guarantees a top speed of close to 50 knots.
A characteristic wavecutter bow and sidewings of the ultralight carbon hull (T300 and T700 fibres) provide fascinatingly simple handling and maximum stability even at higher turning speeds. Due to her lightweight construction, the SAY 42 is, despite her performance, an extremely efficient yacht compared to the competition and consumes up to 50 % less fuel than similar yachts on the market.
The new SAY 42 has also been designed as a luxurious comfort zone: an optional hardtop protects against the sun, the Seakeeper stabilizer eliminates rolling and a voluminous cabin below deck guarantees privacy and classifies the new SAY as a real weekender.
When you enter the SAY 42, the first thing you notice are the wide side decks and the large sun lounger in the aft. Even at over 40 knots, you can still lie here relaxed and safe; the two engines work under the cushions – some water toys can be stowed away here too. Speaking of storage space: Additional accessories or even shoes and bags can be stored in the storage compartments integrated into the bulwarks; ropes, boat hooks, life jackets or small fenders can also be stored there very well.
Between the lounger and the mast, SAY installed a table decorated with visible carbon fibres, which can comfortably seat six people - integrated bottle and glass holders guarantee that you can still enjoy a drink here even at higher speeds; a spacious refrigerator guarantees sufficient supplies. The table can also be lowered, thus significantly increasing the sunpad surface.
In front of the mast - also made of visible carbon - SAY Carbon Yachts installed two Carbon seats, which can be adjusted both in height and in distance to the steering wheel. Two Garmin displays show all the relevant information and are also used to control the Fusion entertainment system. Other technical equipment that can be controlled from the helmstation include a bow thruster from Sidepower, underwater lighting from Lumishore and a gyro stabiliser from Seakeeper (Gyro 2), which eliminates up to 95% of boat roll.
Another technical highlight is certainly also the anchor mechanism. At the push of a button, the anchor lifts out of the flap in the front bow area, moves forward and then lowers into the water together with a 30-metre long stainless steel chain. The foredeck, whose eye-catcher is a giant skylight for illuminating the cabin below, can be reached directly from the helmstation via two steps. This access saves valuable time during manoeuvres, whether in port or in the bay.
Access to the cabin of the SAY 42 is on port side via an electric door - also made of carbon, of course. Below deck, the SAY 42 owner has access to a veritable bathroom with shower, toilet and washbasin. The seating group in the bow can be converted into a bed by lowering the table, two more guests can also stay overnight. Side windows, but above all the large skylight on the foredeck provide sufficient daylight.
Up to 12 guests can experience the SAY 42 at the same time – the capacity is extremely generous for a yacht of this size. The colour, the interior and the fit-out of the SAY 42 will be customized for every owner to guarantee he will get exactly the boat of his choice. As every SAY model the 42 can be configurated online at https://my.saycarbon.com/
Prices for the SAY 42 with engines start at 681.200 Euro (ex VAT).
