Fjord and Patrick Benfield sign a new walkaround, a sleek and comfortable hull intended to add to the brand’s range. At 11.97 meters long overall, this is the new Fjord 39, a weekender capable of top speeds (estimated) of 45 knots and available in two propulsion configurations, XL and XP. Performance aside, there is no shortage of space to relax, with a large forward cabin and several lounge areas on deck.

Sporty lines then, for Fjord’s new 39-footer, a hull that marries relaxation and speed in volumes designed for both daily use and weekend getaways. Hard-top, walkaround setting, and lounging areas, in fact, underscore its approach that looks to comfort and rest, with the cabin/performance combo to match, making room for uses that also look to the small cruise, not excluding nights spent at anchorage.

Fjord 39 – Exterior

In terms of design, looking at the deck layouts immediately reveals the attention given to comfort. The stern immediately welcomes with a flush platform overlooked by a large central sundeck, anticipating a convivial area in the cockpit consisting of facing sofas and a central table.

Just beyond the two sofas served by electrically lowerable table, two kitchen blocks offer different setup options, contemplating sink, work area, and choice of grill or gas stove. Optionally, up to 3 coolers are also available on deck. The whole is sheltered by the hard-top. Just beyond that, the three seats serving the dashboard, complete with the latest navigation systems, then take their place.

Strengthened by a totally walkaround, and therefore step-free, approach, the deck is unimpeded walkable over the entire stern-to-bow path on both walls, thus allowing easy movement between cockpit and bow, where the second onboard lounge area comes to life, populated by an additional sundeck in the deckhouse.


In terms of interior layout, the design of the Fjord 39 features a single double cabin aimed at exploiting every available millimeter on board. As soon as you enter below deck, in fact, an antechamber introduces you to the large aft berth, with design available in 4 different style options, while to starboard it presents access to the separate toilet room, complete with storage and shower. There is also no shortage of storage space, distributed throughout the interior spaces, not excluding then an additional refrigerator placed mure to the left.

Propulsion and Performance

Selling on performance and motorization, the Fjord 39 is available in two distinct variants, XL and XP, differentiated in terms of motorization. In the case of the Fjord 39 XL, propulsion can be provided by two distinct pairs of engines. In the first case, for a total of 640 horsepower, it will be supplied by a pair of 320-hp Volvo Penta D4s, and in the more powerful version, it will instead be supplied by two Volvo Penta D6s, each strong with 440 horsepower, for a total of 880 horsepower. In the XP configuration, however, the Fjord 39 will see a pair of 400-horsepower Mercury Verado V10s installed per engine, for a total of 800 outboard horsepower.
