I am looking at buying a 42 Lancer and would be living aboard. In regards to the type of cruising I would be doing, I live in Southern CA and would want to have a boat I could sail down through Mexico, and hopefully eventually take it through Panama and head to the BVI's. I was wondering if anyone had any feedback both pos/neg about the boat and if any other Lancer owners had some advice. Please, any info would be greatly appreciated!!!

I have never sailed a Lancer 42, but the smaller Lancers that I have been on have been marked by well worse than medicre build quality and in the case of the later Lancers (which would include this model) very gimmicky designs that compromised their sailing ability. In other words, this would be the worng boat for your purpose. There is a very good reason these boats are often on the market with cheap asking prices.

Respectfully,
Jeff
