Sail like a pro
We have cooperated closely with Farr Yacht Design to equip the CRUISER 40 for professional regattas. The result is the CRUISER 40 S – an agile sailing yacht combining comfort and true racer genes. It has a deeper keel, a larger sail plan with performance mast and boom, performance fittings, carbon spinnaker boom, composite wheels, jumbo displays at the mast and many other extras which are indispensable for ambitious sailors.

The CRUISER 40 S is the official yacht of the Match Race Germany. In this classic, the best match racers in the world compete for the German Grand Prix, collecting valuable points for the World Match Racing Tour.
