Wesmac 42s are well known for their performance both in the recreational and commercial markets. This particular example was commissioned as the owner's 2nd Wesmac 42 and built as a serious long range cruising vessel, just as commodious as a yacht but with a look that would allow her to fit in with the commercial boats she would more likely enounter on her long range cruises.

The hull & deck for this Wesmac 42 was molded in 2004 and the engine was purchased at that time. The owner purchased the hull in late 2008 and had the vessel completed in 2009 hence our describing her as a 2009 boat which the completion date on the USCG document will attest to.
Custom built as an extended cruising yacht but with salty workboat like finish on the exterior. The interior however is as nicely done as one could wish for though again the cabin soles were kept simple.
Also included are dished, pots and pans, linens.
Blankets, sleeping bags or oil skins are excluded.
