Not surprisingly, this model has substantial space (155 square feet) in the cockpit, allowing for two removable fish boxes, walk-through transom door, bait freezer and sink, tackle center, stowage for 29 rods, and plenty of elbow room for you and your angler pals.
The all-important engine room is also spacious, allowing you to maneuver and reach all regular service points. As in every Henriques model, the hull of the 42 is hand-laid, solid fiberglass below the water line, with Divinycell coring in the sides. The bridge affords clean sightlines, a neat helm console to flush mount your electronics, and a front bench seat. A plus on this bridge is the walkway behind the helm and aft of the cockpit ladder, allowing access to the port companion seat without interfering with the captain.
The standard layout has the dinette to port, an L-shaped lounge to starboard, and a full galley down to port, an island berth in the forward master and bunks in a second stateroom.
A major benefit of deciding to build your own Henriques is that it will be a limited production, semi-custom boat. We are willing to accommodate many individual designs, as long as they don’t interfere with the integrity of the vessels. In short, no two 42’s are the same. With several generations of boat building excellence behind her, the 42’ will stand up to any challenge offering complete comfort.
