Yachting | 2021
With the SAY 42 the still quite young shipyard SAY Carbon Yachts from Wangen in Southern Germany offers a new, stylish allrounder. The design of the almost 13-metre-long and four-metre-wide format comes from an automotive specialist. KET, not abbreviated: Karosserie Entwicklung Thurner, from Munich drew a very sporty yacht, in which the exposed berth at the stern, the wide bathing platform and the large skylight in the bow are particularly striking.
In the engine compartment under the sun pad, this SAY is powered by two 43 hp petrol engines from Volvo Penta (V8-430 DPS 6.2l), with slightly more powerful 7.4l engines from Ilmor also available as an option. These are 483 hp strong and should bring the boat over the magic limit of 50 knots. The SAY 42 can bunker 800 litres of fuel for her fast cruises.
Behind the sun pad in the stern, eight guests can use a table with integrated glass and bottle holder, and a refrigerator provides sufficient supplies. Alternatively, the table can be electrically lowered to create a second, more protected lying surface. Quickly needed utensils such as jackets, bags or shoes can be stored in the bulwark; two tensioned nets at the stern prevent children and bags from slipping through. The cabin, which is entered through a carbon fibre electric door, has sufficient headroom, enough room to spend the night – ideally for two people – and a veritable bathroom with shower.
