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.
Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
