The DECK LAYOUT offers the crew comfortable working and relaxing areas. An ergonomic concept with practical control capability direct from the safety of the centre cockpit. The standard equipment delivered with the SUNBEAM 42DS is a fine example of Schoechl Yachtbau's understanding of requirements for active and passive safety on board. With a laid teak deck and solid teak toe rails, genoa sheet tracks leading very far aft with Sunbeam turning blocks for a clear cockpit, side gates in the lifelines, stainless steel pushpit with bathing platform and bathing ladder, recessed jib tracks and deck fittings and lots more that lends to your personal safety. This includes a roll reef genoa and roll reef main sail with a minimum clearance of 2 meters under the boom. THE CONCEPT of the SUNBEAM 42DS is based mainly on a formal appearance, proven technics and optimal sailing qualities. In the development, the aim has been to achieve the highest possible cruising comfort, (also for small crews) and the result is shown by the highest level of operating safety with a minimum of required effort. The strong points of the SUNBEAM 42DS are the innovative technology, the extravagant building technique, the hand laid laminate carried out under the supervision of "Germanic Lloyds" and the complexity of the standard equipment.
