42 Sport Fisherman
Length w/ Pulpit:
The Post 42 was designed as an affordable alternative to the more expensive Post 43. Powered with less costly engines, shes built on a low deadrise semi-V hull with a shallow keel and a wide 15-foot, 9-inch beam. Like many convertibles her size, the 42 comes with a conventional two-stateroom interior, however the rich appointments, excellent joinery, and quality furnishings set her apart from much of the competition. The salon features a built-in entertainment center and facing settees, and Post engineers even managed to squeeze a laundry center into the companionway. Topside, the Posts extended flybridge is bigger than it looks with seating for eight, rod storage, and a well-arranged helm console. Because the bridge ladder is recessed into the bait prep console, the cockpitpartially shaded by the bridge overhangis less cluttered than many convertibles. Notable features include teak interior joinery, a top-notch engine room (accessed from under the deckhouse step), two in-deck fish boxes, transom door, and bow pulpit. Twin 430hp Volvo (or 435hp Cat) diesels cruise the Post 42 in the mid 20s (2829 knots top), and Volvo 480hp diesels cruise in the high 20s and top out at over 30 knots.
