This is the best 42s7 I have seen come to market in many years. Beautifully maintained and presented.

Two previous owners. Lightly club raced out of CYCSA. Fully set up as an extremely comfortable, easily handled short-handed, fast cruiser.

She has a watermaker and all new bimini, dodger & infill panel. Side clears and shade panels complete the package.

Apart from the cruising sail kit of battened main, 120% furling genoa, storm jib & assymetrical with sock, there is also a suite of 6 racing sails and the original delivery main & genoa.

Interior is light and airy. Features a generous forward pullman berth with large private bathroom.

Aft Queen sized guest cabin also has own bathroom.

Galley is as good as it gets for secure cooking at sea or entertaining whilst dishing up to guests around table that seats up to 8.
