2018 San Juan Yacht SJ40 Heads to 48th Newport International Boat Show

Essex Boat Works, exclusive Northeast dealer for San Juan Yachts, will show our luxurious 2018 San Juan 40 Sedan at the 48th Newport Boat Show.  Boat show attendees will enjoy seeing the elegant style, sophistication and cutting edge technology of the new SJ40.  San Juan Yachts is known for the light weight construction of their 100% composite hull consisting of E-glass, Kevlar® and Corecell® foam core structure infused with vinlyester resin for superior strength and ease of response. The SJ40 Sedan is made in the US and features Volvo IPS propulsion with Joystick Control and a Dynamic Positioning System.  The powertrain is designed for exceptional handling, speed and economy for boats of this type cruising in excess of 30 knots. 

As said before, a yacht is a work of art and we think we can all agree that fine pieces of art are best seen in person.  We invite you to see this beautiful vessel, nestled in the docks on the Newport Waterfront at this year’s show.   You won’t want to miss this year’s showstopper!
