The Fathom 40's wide beam provides stability and enormous interior space. Two comfortable staterooms, an ensuite head, and spacious salon rival the features of a much larger yacht. The raised pilothouse is distinguished by commanding views from its comfortable helm chair and settee for five. A unique folding transom lowers to expand the aft deck for access and adventure.

The styling is modern and distinctive, but maintains a classic profile. The soft yet bold lines set Fathom apart from the typical trawler or workboat style and place it in a class of its own. The Fathom 40 is a handsome expedition style motoryacht with unique features not found on other yachts. With design features like the distinctive pilothouse, windows in the hull or gracefully curved transom, the Fathom 40 stands out in any marina or at sea.

The boats are meticulously designed using CAD software resulting in stellar performance, efficiency and ride. CAD also allows better utilization of space and a higher level of fit & finish. Every component and feature was incorporated into the computer design and located for function and ease of repair before the boat was built. Design features like a spacious engine room for easy maintenance, a mid-lazarette with over 100 cubic feet of storage or the folding transom make the Fathom 40 a showpiece. The interior design and layout is spacious, comfortable and perfect for extended cruising or just a weekend away.

Extensive engineering features and use of select materials make the Fathom 40 extremely quiet. Mechanical noise is reduced by the cored hull construction and isolation of the salon & galley sole. The engine noise is dampened by an engine room that is sealed from the living spaces and insulated by a 2" sound barrier. Access to the engine room is through the mid-lazarette which acts as a buffer, keeping the aft deck quiet.

The hull has been carefully designed by the naval architect, Greg Marshall with a lifting chine that is not inverted and is quieter while underway or at anchor. The generator is located well aft and is separated from the master stateroom by several compartments and bulkheads.

The relatively short propeller shaft reduces vibration compared to longer shafts required by more forward mounted engine installations. The Fathom 40 uses a class 1 propeller set back from the end of the fine keel where the water is less disturbed and can run smooth in clean water. All of these elements combine to make the Fathom 40 a quiet yacht that is comfortable even on long passages.


Their desire was to learn as much about the Fathom's process in order to enable them to better serve HarborView Yacht Sales and their customers, as well as boat in new territory while enjoying the many fabulous Fathom features. They feel that this new, contemporary styled, fast, trawler will make a great impact on the trawler community.
