The Evolution of Luxury Performance

Sunsation Powerboats launches its new 2018 40CCX .  After two years in development by the Sunsation
design and engineering teams, what began as a 39 foot version of its popular Center Console
Extreme line, has now evolved into a 40 foot state-of-the-art luxury performance center
console, unmatched in its class.

“When we first sat down to discuss bringing a 39 into our line,” says company President, Wayne
Schaldenbrand, “we wanted to introduce a craft that carried forward the performance and styling of our
32 & 34CCX models, while extending the deck and seating space for our customers. We brought in Tres
Martin to work with our design engineers in developing a hull that would be optimal for this application
and superior to the 39 center consoles of our competitors.”

“Expanding and integrating the SS tapered hull design for a 39 foot boat required numerous calculations
and several mock-ups from the CAD designs,” states consultant Tres Martin.  “The final test results
indicated that an additional foot of boat length would provide the perfect center of gravity for the
extended hull length and the new deck configuration. In conjunction with the Center Consoles’
aerodynamically designed hardtop, this additional foot of boat length also dramatically improved the
overall handling and stability of the boat, without negatively impacting its top speed performance.
Sunsation’s 40CCX is without a doubt the best luxury performance Center Console on the market right

The 40CCX made its first appearance on the water at this year’s Lake of The Ozarks Shootout after being
delivered to Performance Boat Center in Osage Beach, MO.   “Sunsation hit it out of the park with this
new boat,” said Brett Manire, Owner of Performance Boat Center.  “This first boat was equipped with
triple Mercury Racing 400’s and even before we got the boat dialed in we were hitting 75 mph.”
“She’ll most likely top out at around the 77 mph mark,” says Sunsation V.P, Joe Schaldenbrand. “But,
honestly, people aren’t really buying these boats for top speed. They are more impressed with the ride,
handling, and style of Sunsation’s CCX line.”
