Don't know what the tankage is on a C42, but a watermaker might make up any shortage. Since you want extra cabins and only plan to cruise for a few years and not push the boat too much, what about a used charter boat of appropriate size? Would be a lower cost, but would need more upgrading, but probably cheaper overall.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
