Isn't an average 40' weigh about 30-35,000?


what's the point or reason for all this weight?

Additional engine, transmission, shaft and prop for starters!

Being it is narrower and lighter, could one assume it “may” be more of a handful in rough conditions .vs a N40 or N43? Curious.

Weight

For comparison, our N40 weighs 55,000. Thats with 300g of fuel aboard a flybridge/paravane boat.

If I was buyer of #1, the very first mod I'd ask for is to fill in those spray rails at the waterline.

What? Look at the :28 and the 2:00 mark of this video to get a good understanding of what spray rails can do for your boat.(Dryer ride!) I added them on my last boat (an 8.4 knot trawler) and they improved my ride. (Less water climbing up the hull.)

Spray rails are good. Lifting rails can be better on some boats to help lift the bow to get on plane faster and stay there.
