Re: 42 Passage CC

Best aft cabin on any boat of that size.

The earlier version came with a backstay, the later has swept back spreaders and no backstay. I like the backstay but the other version seems to do OK.

Spade rudder is somewhat vulnerable, and some Hunters have had a rudder failure on passage. But you can slalom in reverse!

Accessability to items between hull and inner 'tub' can be an issue. Owners talk of requiring a JIG SAW and fitting plastic inspection hatches to gain access.

Good coastal/Caribbean cruiser, but not one I would take down into the southern ocean. .
