The DeSanti 40 comes from the design tables of Steve French at Applied Concepts Unleashed, known for other exceptional sportfishing designs such as Garlington and Sculley, to name just two. But admittedly, this boat doesn't resemble anything French has drawn before. The good people at DeSanti Dolomiti Marine Group looked everywhere for exactly what they wanted in a boat, but they couldn't find a production builder that could meet their requirements. Those requisites stemmed from a desire for a more secure boat for family fishing and cruising. Hence, the DeSanti 40 XPS was born.
DeSanti builds its boats in central Florida, about 30 miles east of Tampa on the Gulf of Mexico. As with many custom yachts today, construction consists of cold-molded wood, fiberglass and quality resin. True to its dedication to custom building, the company will make each open fisherman a one of a kind within the boundaries of the 40-foot hull.
