This yacht is an true example of a classic offshore design, incorporating a warm, roomy and one of the most comfortable interiors available in her class. Both seaworthiness and her generous interior space provide the steady, comfortable and safe cruising provided by this sturdy double-ender designed by well-regarded Naval Architect Stan Huntingford. The vast interior space below decks provides comfortable accommodations and extensive storage. Two comfortable staterooms, full head with tub and shower, and well equipped spacious off-shore galley.

Her large water and fuel capacities, cutter rig, tumble home stern, bulwarks, dorades, many opening ports with screens, stout rigging and quality construction make this blue water voyager a modern classic. An electric windlass and large sail inventory provide additional convenience and cruising options.

Below the water line the hull shows a fine entry with a long cutaway forefoot followed by an efficient modern keel, and a deep profile skeg-hung rudder just forward of a tapered stern section. This design combination clearly distinguishes the Slocum 42 from other traditional yachts by offering ease of handling and safe performance.
