WOW! A great opportunity to get your hands on a “gem”! This yacht is for a family looking for a great cruising boat, but wants to be first at anchor. This yacht is actually better than when she was new and most probably the fastest 42i that exist. We worked in conjunction with North Sails to develop and optimize sail design/shape for this model. Results are exceptional with the boat beating Polars all the time. This 42i includes the Performance package from the Jeanneau factory – including Dyform rig, taller mast, upgraded Dyneema running rigging, Dyneema halyards and upgraded sheets, adjustable backstay, folding prop and more. Option of 22,000$. Mast, boom and vang are all Selden. Jib roller is racing facnor. She is used mostly for cruising and the occasional races with the family. She always qualifies top three of her class in a very competitive group.
6/4/2015 update: owner of this yacht has a new Jeanneau order with us. Regarding pricing, we are creative and anxious to get this boat sold in order to move on to the new boat. All reasonable offers considered. Boat, in a word, is "perfect".

Very good speakers inside and also in the cockpit.

2 cabins, 2heads. The head in the forward cabin has never been used. I think one bathroom is enough in a 42 feet boat. The holding tank is therefore still like new. The holding tank in the other head has been used, but also is like new. After every week-end use, we always empty the tank. There is absolutely no smell.
Bildges: all are clean, no smell
Washdown pump. 8 gal per minute pump for anchor wash down. Works very well nd keep anchor locker clean.
135 feet of 8mm chain and 75 feet of rope. Lemar stainless steel 20 kg anchor. I do have the 10mm adaptor for the windless. The reason i used the 8mm is for weight savings. 10mm is double the weight for the same lenght.
Both wheels have been upgraded to a bigger size. Same size and same wheels as the jeanneau 50ds.
Memory foam mattres in forward cabin
Batteries where changed 2 years ago. Total of 330 amps for bank and 110 amps for engine(also changed)
Dodger and bimini with connection. Windows on the forwrard portion to prevent splash when heavy wind and rain. Nothing on sides.
No cockpit cushions. We use standard cushions.
Teak cocpit floor
Yanmar 54 hp, about 460 hours. I need to check my hours. Oil changes every 50-60 hours. Everything running a ok.
3 blade maxprop.
Cruising speed of 7'1 kts at 2600 rpm. Max speed, calm water is 8,01, at least that is what i clocked on gps.
The hull, decks and gelcoat is in perfect condition. The boat is used in fresh water only fom May to October. Polishing every year and fully covered for the winter period.
Interprotect was done and VC 17 applied every year. If boat goes in salt water, probably need to do vc offshore.
Comes with craddle, winter cover.
It is a special boat for a special someone that is looking for a great boat with cruising abilities, but that can go fast. Not the typical customer, especially with her draft of 6'11' but all worth while.the ride is really smooth and all that have tried the boat where impressed with her capabilities.
Personnaly, i think the boat is better than when she was new.
12/2/14...sellers new boat arriving soon, needs out of this great boat now!! All offers considered.
Fresh water boat, Chaika has been maintained and shows like a new boat. If you are looking for speed and comfort, this is your boat. With her factory performance package and deep keel at 6’11”, it allows her to beat really well even in light air; probably the fastest 42i out there. The owner worked with North Sails to develop and optimize sail design/shape for this model and the results are exceptional with the boat beating Polars. Dyform rig, taller mast, upgraded Dyneema running rigging, racing halyards, upgraded sheets, adjustable backstay, upgraded boom vang, traveler fittings, Maxprop and more. She is used mostly for cruising and occasional races with the family. She always qualifies top three of her class in a very competitive group and is really easy to sail single handed.
The owner is looking for a bigger Jeanneau. We will be creative with the right customer to get this boat sold in order to move the owner onto the new boat.
One word to describe this boat: "perfect".
