43 Sport Fisherman
Length w/ Pulpit:
The second Post 43 model (the original Post 43 ran from 1984 to 1989) is essentially the same boat as the Post 44, the boat she replaced in 1995, but with an updated, much-improved interior. Like all Posts, the 43 rides on a low-deadrise hull with moderate beam and a shallow keel for directional stability. With her sharp entry and flat aftersections, the 43 is quick to accelerate and a fast boat across the water. Below, the expansive salon of the Post 43 is much larger than the earlier 44, the result of space saved by eliminating one of the heads. A full dinette is forward in the salon, and a serving counter overlooks the mid-level galley. An island berth dominates the large master stateroom, and solid teak cabinets, plush furnishings, and vinyl overheads highlight the interior. Traditionally, Post models have had compact engine rooms, but by locating the fuel tanks aft in the 43rather than between the enginesheadroom is increased and serviceability enhanced. Additional features include a superb helm console, excellent storage, cockpit engine room access, and a transom door. A fast ride with optional 535hp 6V-92s, shell cruise in the high 20s and reach a top speed of about 30 knots.
