Any update on this? I'd love a way to swap stories and info with other First 42 owners.

I love the looks of these and have seen one on Yachtworld that I am considering looking at. Looks like they are great cruising boats.

I think it's a great idea. And I'm glad you've recovered your sanity and (evidently) decided against dumping R3.

ebreeden I'm interested. Mine is a 1985 w/ keel reduction & tall rig. In the process of installing a below deck Raymarine autopilot. Lovely boat.

True he was very good, even one of the greats but I'd trade my Col. 43 for a First 42 in a heartbeat.

SloopJonB One of the most beautiful boats ever built. Frers is a master. His work has a slightly "feminine" touch that no-one else since Olin Stevens has mastered and I've never heard of him designing a dud.

ebreeden Perhaps you've decided, but I've got to say, "Wonderful boat!"
She "SAILS" ... like a dinghy. I've owned hull 170 (1985) for 1.5 yrs now. "Emily's Grace" is all that. She goes on a breath and tracks all day rail under. She's got comfort, beauty, and speed. What a package. My former boat was a Peason 10M. Lovely too, but the 42 is a different class altogether. I have also ocean sailed a Bristol 38.5 and a C&C 34 for extensive periods. The 42 has a practical interior of the B and the raciness of the C&C (w/o floating the rudder in a heel). Can't say enough about this boat. I considered a Cal 40, Peterson 40, Hinckley 43, C&c 40 & 44. Shoot, read all the reviews, take a look, and you'll know. I was hooked at 1st glance. Good luck.

Owner's Review

For an owner's review of the Beneteau First 42 and some of the technical details about the yacht see http://www.southwindssailing.com/pdf...august2010.pdf commencing on page 34. Note that there was some ham handedness in the proofing/editing so there are some obvious errors but they are few and minor.

FWIW...
