Manufacturer's Description: J/42 handles like a 35-footer with the solid feel and motion of a 50-footer. Sailing J/42 is easy for one person, thanks to superb wheel response and a commonsense sailplan. J/42 balances well and sails upwind faster under mainsail only (over 6 kts) than some cruisers using both main and large genoa. Since a mainsail is the easiest of any sail to operate, there's less need for expert crews, no need to reef when it blows 25 kts, and, visibility is greatly improved. A self-draining deck anchor storage locker, behind the standard Lewmar electric windlass, is big enough for an anchor rode and cruising spinnaker, ready-to-fly in a ''snuffer" sock. A forepeak bulkhead separates this locker from a spacious owner's stateroom with twin berths (convertible to an over-size double) and ample drawer, bin, cabinet and hanging locker space to store a permanent onboard wardrobe. The forward head /shower combination is private to the forward stateroom. The aft head serves multiple needs: it's ideally located for use at sea; as a wet hanging locker; as a private head for guests; and as a separate shower when there are no guests. Two main settees double as sea-berths and are pitched outboard 5 degrees for secure sleeping at anchor. The cherry drop-leaf table is ruggedly built for security in a seaway. The galley is well ventilated next to the companionway and features a recessed, deep, double sink. Unique is the combination cutting board, serving tray and drop-in galley seat for easier meal preparation at sea. A Force 10 stainless LPG range has both broiler and oven. There is flip-panel access to a tall trash bin. The navigation station features an over-sized table with chart storage, pencil/divider/reading glass rack, overhead panel for flush instrument mounting and a storage bin outboard. The aft double stateroom has four opening ports and hatches, a changing seat, hanging locker bureau with cabinet, three storage drawers and a bedding storage shelf.
