Motorboat & Yachting: Haines Marine has announced plans to revamp the flagship Haines 400, which will be relaunched at this year’s Southampton Boat Show.
The original Haines 400 was launched in 2010, but following the recent success of the redesigned Haines 32 Offshore and Sedan, the yard has decided to carry some of this design language over to the largest model in the fleet.
As a result, the new Haines 400 will get a stone grey hull and extra-long hull windows. Meanwhile the layout will include an aft owner’s cabin, VIP en-suite in the bows, raised aft cockpit, and a split-level saloon and galley.
Most importantly, the new arrival will get the latest 4.46-litre Yanmar V8 diesel engines, generating 370hp on each side for a top speed in excess of 30 knots.
Local dealer Norfolk Yacht Agency will be launching the new Haines 400 at the 2015 Southampton Boat Show, after which it will be displayed as a stock boat.
In a statement to accompany the news, the broker added: “The 2016 model will have all the well loved characteristics of the previous model with a subtle but notably updated exterior. “Needless to say we can’t wait for this gorgeous new boat’s arrival.”
