Interior and Accessories

The new 2023 Solaris 40 Open was designed to set new standards within the category and offer you a large layout with great design elements. The exterior styling is sharp, bold, and sleek making it a real head-turning vessel. You do have six different colors to choose from.

Starting out at the stern, you will find plenty of deck space designed to serve as your line of access directly to the water. Here, there is a sunbathing mattress that allows you to relax and catch some of the sun’s rays. Additional stern seating gives your passengers a place to sit.

The deck is on floor level with the cockpit for a smooth transition. As you move towards the rear of the boat, you will be greeted with a sun deck that houses three large storage lockers underneath. The sun deck features a settee on both sides that surrounds a table sitting right in the middle. The table makes for a great place to serve food and drinks while socializing with your friends.

The overhead hardtop keeps the settee and table area shaded nicely, so you do not have to worry about feeling overheated on a hot day. The hardtop is outfitted with navigation lights, a mast, and an acoustic alarm.

Directly underneath the hardtop is the cockpit and helm, which is home to the captain of the boat. Captains and co-captains will enjoy a complete 360-degree view thanks to the low-profile dashboard. No matter where you find yourself on the boat, you will have an almost unobstructed view. The best seat in the house is right from the helm/cockpit.

Solaris definitely kept the captain in mind when creating the 2023 Solaris 40 Open. The entire console area is geared towards making steering the boat as easy and simple as possible. You will find a chart plotter, joystick, and buttons that make up the majority of controls here. Dual large console screens show you everything you need to see about your boat and its performance. A provided 7-inch navigation display will keep you heading in the right direction.

A nice addition for captains and co-captains are the three pilot chairs. These chairs are plush and designed to be as comfortable as possible seeing as this area is the crème de la crème of views.

Creating a social space is easy with the available seating on the deck and the outdoor kitchen. The kitchen includes a covered worktop area, a refrigerator, storage cabinets, a trash receptacle, and a sink.
