Finely-balanced hull, perfect deck layout
It’s time to hoist the sails on your Moorings 42.1? Well, just fold up the superb swim platform, which then doubles up as the transom, and simply sail away.
Thanks to the excellent view you have of both the crew and your spread of sails, steering this stable yet fast-sailing boat is an immense pleasure. Although considerable power is generated by the sharp, highly-efficient hull, the balance provided by the chines and the helm’s surprisingly sensitive and precise feel will ensure that you will never get to the point where you feel that you are in danger of losing control.
The Moorings 42.1 is easy to manoeuvre if you have a small, inexperienced crew, or even alone, thanks to its perfectly adapted deck layout and the well thought out positionings of the winches and sheets: good design leads to good performance.
The crew will enjoy their time in the extra-large, secure cockpit, where they can huddle safely up between the sturdy cockpit table and the coamings. Here they will be nicely sheltered under the protection of the bimini and the sprayhood, which is firmly clipped to the mainsail arch. The arch, which is a trademark feature of this model, also conveniently houses all the mainsheet tackle.
So, think you may finally have come across a monohull which provides an ideal comprise between size and space? Make a note of its name: the Moorings 42.1.
