When boarding the yacht from the large teak swim step you can very comfortably step into the cockpit through the opening transom door. From there you walk through a sliding door into the main salon. In the main salon there is a very comfortable leather couch and two mission-style reclining leather upholstered chairs with a cherry drop leaf table. The chairs and table were both custom made by the owner for a perfect fit.

Into the mid cabin are the helm and the galley. Makes it easy to have a grilled cheese sandwich while keeping an eye on your course.

The two forward staterooms are very comfortable with extremely nice teak joinery.

The head is fresh water flush and the boat smells fresh as a daisy.

Flatscreen TV with DVD player in the main salon.
Tecma electric toilet with macerator new in 2004. It also has fresh water flush so no smell.

Broker's Comments

This rare and apparently well-maintained Universal Europa Style 42 Trawler shows pride of ownership throughout. I think it is almost impossible to find another boat this clean and of this style at this price. Modern technology in a classic style yacht!

The Europa-style sedan trawler design has survived the test of time and is much in demand for good reason -- safe covered side decks, great visibility from the interior, a useful cockpit and a huge flybridge, and fewer up/down transitions to work the knees.

This yacht is very comfortably configured from bow to stern with virtually no amenity left wanting.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
