The M242 is a 24-foot, high performance, family-oriented day racer and weekender.The total sail inventory consists of a main, roller furling jib and 210% spinnaker. The roller-furling jib dramatically simplifies boat handling and encourages family crews. With a PHRF handicap of 150-156 seconds per mile, it seems that the PHRF handicappers certainly respect the performance ability of the M242. While the accommodations below decks are spartan, the M242 is not a stripped out racer. It features a hull and deck liner to finish the interior nicely, eliminating the "sweating" many small boats experience. And if you feel the urge to gunkhole on a weekend outing with the family, there actually is enough room below to sleep four, with 6' sitting headroom.
