The Monterey 400 Sport Yacht / Volvo IPS

Powered with Volvo’s revolutionary Inboard Propulsion System (IPS) the 400 is one of the first models of any boat manufacturer to be designed around Volvo’s IPS propulsion system. A  range of over 350 miles at a cruising speed as low as 26 mph or as high as 35 mph shows how a sport yacht can be designed to get all the extra performance from the Volvo IPS that it offers to a boater. Top speed for the yacht is over 41 mph with the IPS also.

The 400SY is brimming with standard features and amenities. Starting with the helm, you’ll notice a sophisticated grey gelcoated dash, complete with IPS joystick control. Ergonomically-designed with full instrumentation and fog resistant gauges with low-glare night lighting, the 400’s helm also has a striking black steering wheel with silver insert, electronic steering control and weatherproof, lighted switches.

Continuing with the hull and deck you’ll find a foredeck sun pad with drink holders and grab rails and an extended swim platform complete with a telescoping recessed ladder. Luxurious seating appointments and room for the entire crew starts in the cockpit. The helm seat has a flip-up thigh rise and folding armrest, while the U-shaped lounge aft offers a sun island feature with storage below. Forward, you’ll find an L-shaped lounge seating area with a chase lounge and contoured backrest for added comfort.

Entertaining above deck is a breeze with a concealed flip-out cockpit table with hinged stainless steel pedestal for easy stowaway, a wet bar with solid surface insert, sink, faucet, storage and refrigerator.
