The name says it all: CARPE DIEM. Simply put, there's no better way to "Seize The Day" than by setting off on this superbly engineered and meticulously maintained Custom Fast 42.  French flagged out of Nantes, she cannot be sold to U.S. residents while in U.S. waters, as U.S. Customs Duty has not been paid. But Europeans, Canadians, Australians, and Kiwi sailors wanting a serious passagemaker to explore this side of "the pond" before heading for more distant shores should check her out. Everything about CARPE DIEM -- from her topside layout to her carefully considered interior -- is evidence of the owner's extraordinary attention to details. An engineer by profession, he finished the boat himself in 1994, with an idea to make the boat safe, durable, and as maintenance-free as possible. He also made sure that CARPE DIEM's cutter rig could comfortably be operated by just himself and his wife. Thus, he installed electric furling systems, allowing either of them to adjust sails alone, with the other off-watch, and self-tailing Harken-Barbarossa winches. The equipment inventory is what you would expect of a globetrotter, and includes a diesel generator, massive battery banks, solar panels, water maker, stern arch, washing machine, offshore liferaft, a dinghy, and two outboard engines. Add to that a continuous stainless steel railing like those seen in the Amel line, instead of the more common wire lifeline, and synthetic 1/2-inch Birman teak decks and you have the makings of a safe, fast, easier-to-care-for and handsome home away from home. CARPE DIEM has sailed throughout the Med, crossing the Atlantic in 2009 to cruise throughout the West Indies, the Virgin Islands, Panama, Honduras, and the Bahamas, before reaching the U.S. Altogether, she has recorded some 13,000 nautical miles under her keel "with no significant problem," reports the owner. Her rugged monolithic fiberglass construction includes a barrier coat, closed cell foam insulation, and an integrated keel protected with a steel "shoe". You can see for yourself what only the highest quality materials in the hands of an experienced mariner can produce, as CARPE DIEM is currently stored on land and available for your inspection. Serious inquiries by qualified buyers are welcome. Additional information available upon request.
