Adams 42 Pilothouse Motorsailer

1991 Adams 42 Pilothouse motor sailor now for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.

Are you over Covid 19, 2020 and 2021 and ready to cast off the lines and sail away in 2022?

Well Euphoria is too. In fact, she was lucky enough to sneak away up North last year, but since then she has lots of shiny new bits fitted to her here in Pittwater but sadly her current owner can’t get away and now his loss could be your gain.

Euphoria is a professionally built Corten steel Adams 42 Pilothouse motor sailer, launched in 1991, with a shoal draft of just 1.3m, and she has literally got the lot.

A Shipwright’s inspection in February 2021 for her insurers reported: This steel motor sailer has been exceptionally well built and painted and shows no signs of ever having suffered structurally significant damage or modification.

An immaculate 80hp Cummins 4B3.9M diesel with a brand-new stainless exhaust elbow, as well as new and genuine Cummins raw water pump, lift pump, and starter motor.

In-mast mainsail furling, and a roller furling headsail. Plus a staysail with hanks on a removable inner forestay and a spinnaker in a sock. It should be noted that her standing rigging is older than ten years and will require replacement for insurance.

2 brand new and very high grade Trina tier 1 Vertex 330watt solar panels and a Victron 100/50 solar charge controller which has a smartphone app that lets you monitor the charging remotely.

A new Victron galvanic isolator.

A new and latest model TMQ AP4 autopilot and new GME VHF radio plus a new handheld VHF.

New AIS and splitter, 2 new EPIRBS, and even a full set of in-date flares.

New anodes, antifoul and Propspeed applied in April ‘22.

Her water and fuel tanks are full (and her 1100 litres of fuel has been biocide treated too).

She even has a new diesel-powered heater in the pilothouse with a remote control.

And wait for this… she has the most extraordinary tender/liferaft in davits. It is called a Portland Pudgy and is well worth checking out at It comes complete with the sailing kit, the inflatable exposure canopy to turn her into a liferaft, and even a brand-new Honda 4 stroke air cooled 2.3hp outboard.

As well as her comfy and warm saloon/pilothouse Euphoria has a second helm station on her aft deck under a bimini. The owners cabin is aft (and boast a full Queen size bunk), an ensuite bathroom, and the ship’s office containing full manuals and documentation for everything aboard, plus there is a large double v-berth forward, again with ensuite toilet PLUS an upright shower. A big hot water tank and very good water pressure complete the picture.

A gorgeous galley with a 2-burner gas stove with griller and oven, huge upright dry goods storage, plus pantry area opposite with fridge, freezer and lots of additional bench space.

And of course on the aft deck is a gas barbecue, a lovely timber table that mounts on the wheel, and on the transom is a fold up teak swim platform.

This is one very comfortable liveaboard cruising yacht.
