V1040 Explorer

Following the success of the extended V1100 Discovery, the original V1040 has been reconfigured as the “V1040 Explorer” non-flybridge Sedan cruiser.

The lower bridge clearance not only benefits those in hard to access canals, but also suits those who prefer not to have to go upstairs. This means the saloon can now be opened right up with double bi-fold doors to create one large living area with the cockpit, and the increased roof area allows for maximum use of solar collection.

The ‘V1040 Explorer’ is available with a choice of Diesel inboard engines, retaining its shallow draft and protected props. for trouble free exploring in more remote areas.
