Whitehaven reveals the latest Harbour Classic 40 in classic racing car grey

Whitehaven Motor Yachts has launched the concept for the 2022 Harbour Classic 40 model. The gentlemen’s styled day boat features major changes to interior arrangements and is finished with a striking grey found on vintage British sports cars to provide inspiration.

The latest evolution of the Harbour Classic 40 provides the luxury of two private accommodation suites below deck serviced by a central ensuite with a full standing shower.  

The galley has moved to the main deck sitting behind the helm. In this position, it can be easily accessible from both the saloon and cockpit. 

The cockpit is still a key feature of the 40-foot cruiser and now the expansive space includes a wet bar and BBQ. 

Power by a single Volvo D6 480hp, this Harbour Classic 40 will be finished in Jaguar E-Type Racing Grey, reminiscent of James Bond, completing the vintage gentlemen’s cruiser look. 

“Our team has undertaken significant consultation with customers and taken on board the feedback. Now we feel we have hit the sweet spot with these latest design changes,” stated Whitehaven’s Managing Director, Bruce Scott. 

“We have further found efficiencies in design and production and are able to pass those savings onto our customers. Whilst the amenities and specifications have improved, the price has never been more competitive.” 

The Harbour Classic 40 concept was launched onto the Australian market in 2018 after Mr Scott saw an opportunity to modernise the Sydney Harbour day boat. 

Scott explained, “For the 2022 model, we have maintained the clean, retro lines as well as a spacious and inviting cockpit for the perfect day on the harbour yet improved the liveability on board.”

“Like any of the yachts in the Whitehaven range, the Harbour Classic 40 is also customisable including the hull colour. Our strong relationship with the shipyard ensures, that even with personalised changes, we can deliver the Harbour Classic 40 in as short as 10 months.”
