DRAGONFLY 40 – PERFORMANCE CRUISER

DF 40 OVERVIEW

Dragonfly 40 Performance Cruiser is the new flagship of our range, and sets new standards in fast family cruising with the emphasis on easy handling and short-handed sailing.

The powerful, wave-piercing floats minimise heeling. However, they also slice cleanly through the chop for a smooth ride.

A spacious dual-zone cockpit allows guests to relax around the table. Meanwhile all sailing controls are led aft to the working cockpit, where twin helm stations and a bank of electric winches allow easy and safe control. As a result, even solo-sailing is possible.

The stylish, modern interior in elm wood maximises cruising comfort, ensuring this boat sets new standards for fast family cruising. The cabin has 1.95m headroom, and the large table comfortably seats 8 to 10 people. Generous windows ensure a panoramic view, while multiple skylights maximise natural light and ventilation. Dragonfly 40 has separate forward and aft double cabins to maximise privacy. In addition, the port sofa quickly transforms into a double berth.

This model is available in two versions, which share the same accommodation but have different sized carbon rigs. Dragonfly 40 Touring has a self-tacking jib for easy handling. Meanwhile, Dragonfly 40 Ultimate has a taller rig with an overlapping genoa, for higher performance. Both can fly a Code 0 and gennaker from the fixed bowsprit, ensuring maximum efficiency and fun downwind. In addition, the bowsprit accommodates anchor stowage and a retracting boarding ladder.

The float decks each have two large deck hatches, which give access to huge lockers for all your cruising gear. Extra sails, fenders and folding bikes, for instance. There’s even space for a kayak or paddle board, accessed via an optional stern hatch.

Kick-up rudder and centreboard give access to shallow anchorages. Therefore, you can enjoy those perfect spots denied to other yachts this size. At anchor Dragonfly 40 is like your own private island, because there’s ample space to spread out. The trampolines offer huge deck space for relaxing in the sun, and are ideal for rigging wind- or kitesurfing kit.

When you return to the marina, Dragonfly 40 folds quickly at the press of a button to fit a single berth, just like any other yacht.

Winner of ‘European Yacht of the Year 2021’ in the Performance Cruiser category. In conclusion, they described it as “the new benchmark in performance cruising”.

Fast, fun, incredibly well built. It’s the new benchmark in performance cruising

“The new flagship of the Danes reached 20 knots in the test with no effort … the range of action for cruising sailors is increased enormously!”

A fast sailboat, with an exceptional finish, and with which all programs are possible. Don’t look, it has no competitors.

For the first time I was able to drink coffee at the same time I steered at over 15 knots of speed.
