Manufacturer Provided Description

     "The 40 SC is the combined result of the Italian Naval Architectural firm of Nuvolari-Lenard and American yacht manufacturer Marquis Yachts. This yacht has brought to life a combined vision of an open boat that not only looks amazing and is built to perfection but also provides its operator and passengers with thrilling performance. Built around Volvo's innovative IPS propulsion system the Marquis 40 SC will deliver an exhilarating ride at speeds expected to exceed 40 mph. The addition of the IPS Joystick allows the operator to confidently maneuver the yacht in tight quarters and while docking. The open-air salon and adjoining cockpit is designed for maximum access to the yacht's ocean side environment. The salon entrance doors open to create one large environment combining the salon with the yacht's cockpit. The innovative transom lounge easily glides aft with a push of a button to create more than 60 square feet of cockpit space. The yacht's salon features quality treatments such as exotic African Zebrano hardwood cabinetry with high gloss quality lacquered trim, wooden cabin sole and designer selected fixtures and appointments. The interior of the Marquis 40 SC compares in materials, style, fixtures and quality to the interiors of mega and super yachts that are cruising the world." ~ Marquise Yachts
