Atlantic 42: From Motor Boats Montly Magazine April 1999
Atlantic Motoryachts are setting excellent standards with their Atlantic range and they seem to have found an empathetic partner is Searanger Yachts.
Both companies are keen to please a small but growing band of owners on both sides of the North Sea. They will be helped in this aim by the fact that the 42 is a quality boat, solidly constructed and capable of comfortable passage-making and lengthly cruising with the minimum of fuss.
The overall layout is hugely appealing, not least the space and comfort of the open-plan saloon and dinette. Look below the surface and you find a commendable level of practical detail, always solidly engineered or crafted.
The 42 is not the nimblest or the most economic mover around, but it is not designed to be. And all those hours building the interior up from scratch carry a premium, both in terms of construction time and, if you get too carried away with the excesses that a semi-custom build can encourage, money.
But the boat will appeal to those who know a good cruising boat for mixed water use when they see one. Pour the coffee, stich the autopilot on, watcht the miles roll past and enjoy.
