    SAY 42 marks another breakthrough of low-emission cruising with high-performance handling. A spacious cabin, available with a choice of personalized luxury materials and styling includes a generous double berth and complemented bathroom invite you to spend an unforgettable time on board. This Carbon vessel is equipped with the latest technology: Thanks to its revolutionary Seakeeper 2 GYRO giving all 12 passengers total stability while on anchor.

    The SAY 42 offers spacious cockpit seating incorporating storage space for all your necessary water toys. The unexpected large stabilizing bathing platform contains an electric hydraulic bathing ladder for elegant boarding. The concept of SAY Carbon Yachts is combine sleek and clean lines to create uncompromising comfort and performance.

    The new SAY 42 is another breakthrough of low emission cruising with high-performance handling. She provides revolutionary hydrodynamic light - weight hull design enabling speeds above 48 knots.


    A characteristic wave cutter bow and sidewings of the ultralight carbon hull (T300 and T700 fibers) provide fascinatingly simple handling and maximum stability even at higher turning speeds. Due to her lightweight construction, the SAY 42 is, despite her performance, an extremely efficient yacht compared to the competition.

    In front of the mast – also made of visible carbon – SAY Carbon Yachts installed two Carbon seats, which can be adjusted both in height and in distance to the steering wheel. Two Garmin displays show all the relevant information and are also used to control the Fusion entertainment system. Other technical equipments that can be controlled from the helmstation include a bow thruster from Sidepower, multi-colour underwater lighting from Lumishore and a gyro stabilizer from Seakeeper (Gyro 2), which eliminates up to 95% of boat roll.

    Another technical highlight is certainly also the anchor mechanism. At the push of a button, the anchor lifts out of the flap in the front bow area, moves forward, and then lowers into the water together with a 30- meter long stainless steel chain. The foredeck, whose eye-catcher is a giant skylight for illuminating the cabin below, can be reached directly from the helm station via two steps. This access saves valuable time during maneuvers, whether in port or in the bay.

    Up to 12 guests can experience the SAY 42 at the same time – the capacity is extremely generous for a yacht of this size.
