Brisbane boatyard Norman R Wright and Sons has chosen Sanctuary Cove as the site for the world launch of the Navigator 42 lobster-style cruiser.
The Navigator 42 is aimed at the family, dayboat and coastal cruiser market.
With a single level plan, the designers connect the cockpit and the saloon via a shaft saloon door and a bar where the window drops down to merge the two areas.
The portside bar has three removable cockpit stools and abuts the L-shaped saloon lounge and dinette. The well-equipped galley is opposite while cockpit seating includes a transom lounge for four.
Accommodation spans a forward owner’s stateroom and a twin bunk cabin to port. Opposite there is a generous en suite/day head with separate shower stall.
The Navigator 42 is powered by twin Yanmar 6LY3 UTP electronic diesels each producing 380hp at 3300rpm. There is a 1200L fuel capacity and 300L of freshwater in two tanks and a holding tank of 120L.
The boat features a fit out in either teak or American cherry wood and offers bow and stern thrusters with joystick control.
Wright and Sons, celebrating 100 years of boat manufacturing this year, have three boats currently in construction. The vessel is expected to retail around $A800,000.
