This 2016 Reliant Commuter 40 is heading to the Palm Beach Boat Show in March 2017, but heading back to Newport by early summer. 

Resulting from decades of design expertise with Alden and Trumpy Yachts, the designers of
this Reliant Commuter 40 have exceeded expectations once again with the entire Reliant series. This is your opportunity to be one of the first to own one of their next generation motor yachts.

Reliant is a new American yacht company. The builds and designs are comparable to other high end yacht companies, but offered at a VERY competitive price. One client commented at the Newport Boat Show that it was in fact much better quality than ********. (Enter the first high quality yacht builder name that comes to mind here).

Fresh from her SUCCESSFUL public debuts at the Newport & Annapolis  Boat Shows, this 2016 Commuter 40 is now available for sale because the owner, who had this one built, has fallen afoul of the age old sailors problem of needing a bigger boat. His now grown up family, who had drifted away from the water, took one look at this beautifully designed and exquisitely detailed motor yacht and want back in. Consequently, he now needs a second cabin, and therefore you can now benefit by owning this magnificent vessel yourself - at a significantly lower price than a new one would cost.

At 40 feet, this makes traveling by sea a luxurious experience. Varnished and satin finished mahogany throughout, along with real marble counter tops, this yacht shows incredibly well. The bathroom on this beauty was compared to a 5 star hotel bathroom. (We were told it was so far and above anything seen before on a yacht of this caliber that we couldn't call it a "head").

Powered by twin Yanmar 320 diesel engines with straight shafts, she cruises around 24 knots with a WOT of 30. Consistent performance provides around 1 gallon per mile economy, so at 30 knots, she'll use 30 gallons, at 24 knots, 24 gallons etc. Less than 500 hours.

Outfitted with a 5kw Cummins Onan generator, which is so well insulated you almost have to lift the hatch to make sure she's running, 4" Mylar foam laminated with lead insulation in the engine room, two Racor 75/900 max fuel filters, 36 * 9" dual cylinder trim tabs and Delta-T mist eliminators complete the mechanical aspects of this yacht.

Radar and GPS Chart Plotter, bow thruster, full engine, battery and tank gauges, all easily accessible from the helm. Added safety provided by the Yanmar Sub Throttle, which is a separate mechanism for starting the engines should you lose all power to the standard controls. A Fusion Stereo system is installed for maximum listening pleasure. You can also connect to your iPhone playlist.

She comes with mooring lines, fenders (with covers), fire extinguishers, life preservers, burgee staff (along with the Reliant Burgee), varnished 1 1/4 inch * 60 inch flag staff and ensign with socket mount, fog bell, horn and swim ladder.

The anchor and rode deserves special mention. The anchor is a Delta stainless steel with 250 ft of 1/2 inch laid nylon line with 15 ft of 5/16 inch galvanized chain leader. But more importantly, and far more aesthetically pleasing, is the Reliant Anchor Deployment System (RADS). RADS is a simple mechanism that stows the anchor in (of all places) the anchor locker. No more line snagging anchor hanging over the bow. Simply drop the anchor when it's needed, and as most boats like this are either on a mooring or tied to a dock, how often is that? See attached pictures.

The helm has separate seating for the captain and mate, and just aft is seating for 4 with plush padded seats, with a full white canvas enclosure with Eisinglass for full visibility if under way with the enclosure in place. Aft of the bridge deck is yet another conversation area with Sunbrella cushioned seating for 5 or 6 along with inlaid cocktail table.

Down below the quality just speaks for itself. Expert craftsmanship is obvious. The starboard side bathroom mentioned above comes again with mahogany finish, marble counter tops, stainless steel sink, head and separate stand up shower with complete privacy door (not a screen or glass door).

The port side galley down configuration has a 2 burner stove, microwave, refrigerator, hot and cold faucets over dual sinks, plenty of storage cabinets and drawers on roller guides, with brass accent handles, and again classic marble counter tops.

Forward of the galley is the very comfortable master berth with queen size mattress and privacy door.

For more detailed information see the attached Specifications page, and be sure to watch the video to see her under way.
