Motorboat & Yachting - - Southampton Boat Show Preview -

This charm­ing Menorquin is sure to cut a dash in­side Mayflower Park as it makes its UK show de­but. Built on Menorca, the 42’s roots lie in the sturdy fish­ing boats suited to the choppy wa­ters of the Balearics but the teak clad in­te­rior is as classy as any of its ri­vals’. It boasts a two- or three-cabin lay­out and a top speed of over 20 knots, with a pair of 300hp Volvos. The semi-dis­place­ment, resin-infused hull is re­as­sur­ingly solid in the chop, and that hand­some flared bow does a fine job of keep­ing spray off the teak-lined decks. For a 43ft boat the fly­bridge is a lit­tle pokey, a com­pro­mise that comes with such sweet lines, but the yard has man­aged to squeeze a sin­gle helm, com­pact dinette and to­ken sun­pad up top. It’s a left-field choice but a good one. CON­TACT Edge-wa­ter Ma­rine Tel: +44 (0)2392 388884.­gay­
