The primary design goal for the 40z was to create a 40 foot powerboat that would handle like a 30-footer at idle speeds in tricky docking situations. The Volvo-Penta IPS joystick control technology makes this goal a reality. The IPS system works with twin pod drives under the hull. When conventional twin-engine controls are in neutral, a single joystick takes over with fingertip control. There are no thrusters. Through a unique computer program, each drive unit is independently operated in terms of direction, rpm and forward-reverse gear. This system works far more intuitively than conventional twin shaft drives or joystick/thruster operated jet drives.

Unique Features

  • Side-opening doors (P&S) overcome a common problem, getting aboard or getting off when handling docklines.
  • Single-level seating for as many as 15 at cocktail time or for a family picnic
  • Roll-up side/aft curtains and fully-opening windshields to regulate airflow in the pilothouse to suit conditions.
  • Large (60" x 78") island berth and separate shower in owner stateroom.
  • Two convertible guest cabins, one with dinette. - 40z can be trucked overland without penalty. Width does not exceed 12' and height on a trailer is less than 13'6".


  • Upgraded Twin Volvo-Penta 435 hp diesels.
  • Epoxy unidirectional tri-axial kevlar and S-glass hull and deck
  • Joystick docking control with IPS systems.
  • 40 knots top speed


Comfortable sleeping accommodations for 6.

Boarding HIGHLANDER is extremely easy - entering either by port, starboard or transom doors. The generous COCKPIT allows forward facing bench seating across the transom, with two aft facing seats on either side of the helm deck entrance. The bench seat and sole underneath lift up, with an electric operated lift arm (there is a manual backup), for easy access to the engine compartment below. There is storage beneath the two seats and courtesy lights offer ample evening lighting.

The HELM DECK features comfortable settee seating, on both sides of the helm deck, with high-gloss varnished hi-lo table on the port side. These settees may convert to 6'5" berths for extra guests. Forward are twin Stidd Chamois UltraLeather helm seats, with helm controls, instrumentation and electronics to starboard. The helm deck hardtop comes equipped with an overhead drop down TV for easy viewing. LED lights overhead in the helm deck may be dimmed when desired.

The HELM DECK is bright, open and airy with excellent visibility for helmsman and guests. Helm deck Strataglass side curtains are easily unzipped or covered with white Textilene inside privacy/shade covers. The aft curtain may roll up to remain open.

The sliding teak companionway door is gloss-varnished, paneled, louvered and lockable (from both inside and out) providing access to the salon, galley and accommodations below.

Two non-skid steps lead forward and down to the beautifully finished Herreschoff interior with off-white paneling and varnished cherry trim. Clear Awlgrip gloss-finished teak and holly cabin sole also runs throughout the interior. In the MAIN SALON, to starboard, are spacious and comfortable UltraLeather dinette seats with a Hi-Lo table in between.The dinette table lowers with electric control to form a 40"-44" wide by 78" long berth for guests. A vertical opaque curtain may be installed to provide privacy. There are opening ports, skylight hatches and port lights, all with screens and shades.

Across from the dinette is the GALLEY which features white Corian counter top, with framed and paneled cherry cabinetry both above and below. There are push button locks and drawer knobs for all lockers and drawers - pots, pans, cutlery, galley ware, china and glassware and waste. A  polished stainless steel sink offers a Scanvik pullout faucet and a removable Corian cover. Excellent refrigeration is provided by a Stainless Steel Isotherm two-drawer refrigerator/freezer (factory installed new Fall 2015), with a separate drop-down freezer (factory installed new Fall 2015) in the counter. Cooking is a pleasure on a ceramic two-burner electric stove with pop-up retainers and in a five-way microwave/convection oven. There is ample counter and storage space for the chef's preparing the simplest fare or the most lavish feast.

Forward, to port, is the double-entry HEAD, featuring both head and shower, Corian counter with polished stainless steel oval sink, mixing valve spigot and pullout flexible hose with soft-spray to use as a second shower. The head is accessible both from the salon (as a day head) and from the master stateroom. There is a Vacuflush head, lockers above and under the sink and full length mirror inside the door.

Across and to starboard, is a stand-alone SEPARATE SHOWER, with seat, wall mounted Scanvik shower hose, shaving mirror and towel & toiletry storage.

The MASTER STATEROOM is next forward, with paneled cherry door, a 60"x 78" center berth with memory foam mattress, (4) storage drawers and one large compartment beneath, storage shelves above the berth, bookcases and the forepeak anchor locker with double access doors. Excellent space is available in the bureau, cabinet, hanging locker and storage shelves over the berth. A large dressing mirror is on the forward face of the entry door to the master stateroom.

Two separate MarineAir 16,000 BTU Airconditoning units provide excellent cooling in both helm deck and interior. Throughout are overhead hatches and ports, all with Oceanair dual action shade/screens. In addition, overhead LED lighting can be lowered with dimmer switches. The interior is tasteful, functional and comfortable and, overall, completed with style.
