Fair enough Giu. I can't even begin to dream about any of these shoes. I stick to the little ones.

Two Cal 21's get's me to the 42' mark and includes a parts boat. What should I do with the other $796,000?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Since we're talking 42' boats... I'd throw in Chris White's Atlantic 42. Here's a photo of one doing about 20 knots...

For me it is a toss up......
A nice Cabo Rico 42 or a Waterline 43 would do me nicely Maybe I'll take both, since money is no object!!!

World Cruiser Waterline 43 >> Designers and builder's of fine metal boats >> Waterline Yachts

Money is always an issue so for a 42' blue water boat I would look at a Tayana 42.

Available as a centre cockpit

1990 Tayana Center Cockpit Sail New and Used Boats for Sale -

Or an aft cockpit
1985 Tayana Vancouver Cutter Sail New and Used Boats for Sale -

Best?

Best as in best speed, best safety, best ease of operation, best construction, best comfort factor at sea, best aesthetics, best value, best (lowest) maintenance?.....

Best may not be best based on which best or bests you mean!

For me, in that size, I'm partial to the J42.

Hmmm...money no object, here's my list of favorites for bluewater:

Cabo Rico 42
Morris 42
Pacific Seacraft 40/44


If you're looking for a ~42 footer for bluewater work on a budget (<$125k), I'd look at these:

Valiant 40
Baba 40
Westsail 42/43
