These legendary trawlers are benchmark for those yachtsmen looking for build weight, quality and comfort. From a hull first launched in 1965, the 42 has been continually improved, and the Europa version with her long flybridge, covered side-decks and clear aft deck is rare to the brokerage market. “Mother Gun” has been routinely serviced, and is the double island forward layout, with the stronger, 375HP Caterpillars putting high teens running on tap. Truly a proper gentleman’s nautical motor-carriage.
