But the ambitions go even further. The new one should also point the shipyard's path to the modern age, says product manager Pascal Kuhn. Together with the Italian designer Maurizio Cossutti, the developer relies on an extremely voluminous hull with a width of 4.29 meters that does not taper aft, vertically sloping freeboards with pronounced chines and a full, round bow with a voluminous fore-ship shape. In addition to a high level of stability, the result is plenty of space and two aft berths, each 1.60 meters wide.
Despite the large width, the shipyard did without a double rudder system. The sail area is quite large for a cruising yacht. With the specified weight of 9.7 tons and a ballast proportion of almost 30 percent, the C42 is within the normal range for its class. The boat is available with a 1.70 or 2.10 meter deep keel. Further options are a self-tacking jib and a furling rig as well as a third aft cabin and a second wet room.
