42 Commander

A great deal of excitement surrounds this model... because it's completely different from ordinary type of double-cabin flybridge cruiser. There's more room, both on deck and belowdecks. The cabin extends all the way to the transom, which provides a spacious sundeck topside. The longer superstructure means more window area, and thus a brighter aft cabin. Throughout the boat there's room to move around and room to entertain. And headroom is 6'2" and up. The master stateroom aft is extra large, with two wide berths, large wardrobe, and an adjoining toilet room with a standard shower. Amidships is a salon which rivals larger vessels for roominess and convenience. The layout is warm and hospitable, and it features twin lounges on either side of a dining table which can be lowered to coffee table height. To starboard is a handy serving bar, which helps to separate the galley, which is a step lower than the dining and entertainment area. Electric refrigerator, range, and oven are standard in the galley, which is a truly pleasant place to work. There's a private stateroom with adjoining toilet room forward. And like all other areas. there's plenty of storage-in the form of hanging lockers, drawers, and shelves. Twin-screw options include 300-hp V-8's and 258-hp diesels. Speeds to 29 miles per hour. A hardtop is optional.
