The design team of Berret-Racoupeau was tasked with bringing big-boat allure to a smaller footprint, and the result is a sleek cruiser that has plenty of beam and deck space without looking boxy or awkwardly tall. The hulls have a fine entry for better performance, the fixed keels eliminate the need for daggerboards and the coachroof angles down as it swoops forward, adding the perception of movement or speed. The Lucia 40 is actually bigger than the Lipari 41 she replaces, featuring a more spacious cockpit, more interior volume and larger windows all around.
Boarding via the aft transom platforms is made easier with well-placed handholds. From here, itís only one step up to the cockpit, which is quite spacious.
The portside L-shaped dinette can accommodate up to eight, and there is additional seating along the transom and on the starboard-side lounge. The entire cockpit is protected by a composite bimini.
The helm station to starboard is elevated and molded into the bimini, with access from the deck as well as via a set of steps from the cockpit. There are a number of nice features here: the seat accommodates the captain and a companion. Yet another set of steps leads up to the coachroof where the boom is low enough that itís easy to reach over and tuck away the mainsail at the end of the day. In addition, the Raymarine multifunction display is conveniently located, and there is a small sheet bin built in to keep the spaghetti tidy.
Forward, there is a large optional sun pad ďloungeĒ that spans the front of the cabinhouse. Itís a nice place to relax if you donít like lying in the trampoline. Below the sun pad is a pair of lockers housing the water tank, the Quick vertical windlass and some large stowage spaces.
There is a generous choice of exterior relaxation areas and the spacious cockpit has been designed for easy entertaining at sea. Boasting four cabins and 2 bathrooms shes perfect for a large family or 4 couples.
Owners are struggling to think of a name for their beautiful new vessel if you can help email the team with your ideas!
Expected to arrive in August 2017 we are excited to start planning your holiday on board.
