The 40 Foot multihull, designed by architects Simonis and Voogd and contstructed by South African builder Robertson and Caine, excels in speed, agility and bluewater performance. Enhancements include an innovative belowdecks layout and increased volume in the hulls, which adds to interior space. The galley is forward to starboard, kitty-corner from the spacious dining area aft to port in the saloon. Oversize sliding glass doors open to the aft cockpit providing panoramic views from the interior. The 404 also features a raised helm station with a full range of Raymarine electronics, and supplementary power from dual 29-horsepower engines.
