The Whitby 42, designed by Ted Brewer, was built by Whitby Boat Works in Whitby, Ontario. About 200 were built before production moved to Florida in 1983. The first Whitby 42 was built in 1973. As John Kretchmer wrote in "Sailing" magazine in March, 2000, "This sturdy, commodious, and affordable ketch is a good choice for anyone contemplating serious cruising and living aboard."
SERENADE is a wonderful example of a Whitby 42. She was outfitted for an around-the-world cruise and spent ten years circumnavigating under her previous owners. Her current owners purchased her in 2007 and have taken her South twice. Their first trip was from Maine to the Bahamas, and lasted 11 months. Their second trip was to Florida.
At the time of the current owners' purchase, SERENADE was the nicest Whitby 42 on the East Coast. Her current owners have continued to give her excellent care, and she looks far younger than her years. SERENADE is well equipped, in fine condition, and comes with an extensive list of spare parts and equipment. Her owners have done all the long-distance cruising they plan to do, and have decided to downsize to a smaller boat. SERENADE is currently hauled for the winter near Fall River, MA
