DESCRIPTION & DETAILS
Alexander Marine Australia are excited to present the Fjord 40 Open 'Vitesse' to the market as central agents.
She is fresh from a mammoth refit - basically all of her original equipment was outright replaced or substantially upgraded, and she now presents as the ultimate day boat. Her striking two pak paint finish makes for a head-turning statement wherever she roams.
For those people that haven't experienced the enjoyment and exhilaration of the Fjord 40 Open we recommend you wait no longer! Dual Volvo Diesel IPS power offers great acceleration, swift top-end speed approaching 35 knots, and ease of docking courtesy of the Volvo IPS joystick docking system. This choice of power is also smooth and quiet. They are a fun boat in which to enjoy time out on the water with family and friends. The walk-around decks, with high bulwarks, make for an easy and safe boat to get around and entertain onboard. S/S child/pet gates are fitted across the stern to further keep everyone where they are meant to be.
'Vitesse' features a custom extended swim platform which makes for a great space from which you can swim, fish, or cook up a storm on her removable S/S BBQ which is installed onto her dual removable transom rails.
In addition to her previously mentioned BMW Neon Blue painted hull, her decks and capping boards are laid with superyacht quality Esthec decking material with a custom diagonal chalking inlay detail. This material is low maintenance and being ultra-tough will be in service a lot longer than traditional teak decking. And it looks sharp!
Her cockpit features dual bench seats, of which both backrests can be reversed providing a large combination of seating arrangements. You will find storage under both of these bench seats. The seating combinations include having the aft seat setup to face aft so as guests can watch people swimming or generally take advantage of the view out from the stern of the boat - the lounges are super comfortable to sit on and feature new upholstery with custom stitching detail. When typically configured the two bench seats face each other, and an electric height adjustable table makes for either a dining or coffee table configuration - for up to 8 guests given the beamy nature of the Wally-inspired hull design. The table can be lowered all the way down (and with the addition of an infill cushion over the table) this area then becomes a large sun pad. When underway the forward bench seat can be set up so as to face forward - which just feels right when running at higher speeds.
Various soft shade options are available for the cockpit - a simple market umbrella locates through the middle of the table into a custom base fitting and can be set up in a jiffy. For more substantial shade, a large euro awning (shade sail) attaches to the aft of the custom hardtop and is then connected/supported back aft by custom removable carbon fiber poles (which again locate into custom deck hardware!) - it's a very nice system. The foredeck has a similar removable euro awning and carbon fibre pole system also FYI.
Above the helm area and dash is a fixed custom hardtop that provides permanent weather protection (the current hardtop offering significantly more protection than the standard factory hardtop). The aft of her hardtop features inbuilt spreader lights perfect for entertaining after dark.
Her modern helm features the latest in Raymarine electronics including Raymarine Axiom 12" Pro RV, Axiom 9" Plus Chartplotter, AIS 700 and Raymarine M200 Flir thermal Camera. She is equipped with solar panels and therefore can be left without shore power (say on a mooring) with ease while still running selected DC appliances. Cruise along to the beats of Fusion Sound System with JL Audio amps, subwoofers and speakers.
Below deck, the Fjord 40 Open layout features a surprisingly large cabin (for her walk-around deck layout). An island double bed is installed centreline forward, and in addition to this, the settee backrests remove to reveal another bed which is tucked outboard to starboard and under the helm area. The head with an integrated shower is located to port. 'Vitesse' features a cherry timber finish, and has all new upholstery and floor coverings in the cabin.
Forward of the helm seat is a large upholstered foredeck sun pad (which you can enjoy with or without the weather protection on offer from the removable euro awning).
The bow of 'Vitesse' features a custom S/S bow plate on the stem, and she is equipped with an Ultra S/S Anchor.
Extensive weather covers have been made to keep the boat in great shape when not in use, plus there are removable port and starboard dodgers that protect the helm area should you experience some rain when enjoying the boat.
Major mechanical works were completed to 'Vitesse' during the refit, most notably the installation of the latest model (brand new 2020) IPS drives.
The Fjord 40's are a competent sea boat with one east coast model having cruised the east coast from Sydney up to Hamilton Island.
