The 40DS is the most popular model in our Nordship range. She hits the sweet spot for those who want to spend long periods of time on board, cruising far and wide. We’ve increased tankage and stowage far beyond what is usual for this size of yacht, while her modern hull design and powerful sailplan give her a rewarding turn of speed.
On deck, the split cockpit design is both practical and safe, allowing the helmsman to control all lines and winches from the wheel without the crew blocking any part of the aft cockpit. The forward cockpit has a high coaming and well-rounded corners, making it a comfortable place to relax whether you’re anchored or under sail.
The 40DS offers her owners ample volume and space to customise the interior. There is a spacious, well-appointed aft cabin with remarkable headroom above the large double berth. There is room for an en suite heads and shower compartment, or that space could be devoted to extra stowage for the cabin and/or the cockpit.
The raised saloon has a spacious, open feeling so that when the yacht is under way, anyone navigating or relaxing around the large saloon table is treated to an excellent view while remaining warm, dry and sheltered. Beneath the saloon seating it’s possible to have a third cabin for guests and family.
