The Moorings 42.1

An extra-large cockpit to make you feel at home

The Moorings 42.1 is a quintessential Bénéteau boat, built by a company with whom we have been working since the outset. Although this model is less than 42 feet long, they have managed to maximise the space outside while maintaining optimum comfort inside. Its wide-beamed, chined hull, designed by Finot-Conq, is sure to thrill sailing fans everywhere. And the luxurious interior, designed by Nauta Design in their own inimitable style, is fitted with the latest, premium materials.

The Moorings 42.1 features 3 cabins and 2 toilets and can therefore comfortably host a crew of 6 and, if required, it can even accommodate two more, thanks to the convertible table in the saloon. What’s more, the magnificent fore cabin, which has its own private bathroom, will leave any visitors who take a peek in there absolutely green with envy! This layout is ideally designed for a perfect cruising holiday with friends or family.

The best lighting and fittings you could wish for!

When we chose the options for the Moorings 42.1. we decided we wanted to spoil you. So, onboard you will find: a TV screen, LED lighting, solar panels, a WIFI router, shore power reverse-cycle air-conditioning, ventilators, USB sockets, electric toilets and an extra water tank. The gently-sloping companionway leads down to a modern, floodlit saloon and a functional, well-designed L-shaped galley: all you need to ensure a pleasurable cruise.

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.
