Description The Privilege 42 replaces the very successful Privilege 39, a popular boat in the bareboat charter trade. She continues the tradition of a luxury craft designed for families and friends or charter work. The new design is much faster than the 39, making her an exciting, yet safe boat to sail. The new hulls add three additional feet of length and one additional foot in width, while the interior space has also been enlarged and features 6’5" headroom in the saloon and 6’4" in the hulls. The interior accommodations include four double cabins, each with its own head, shower and sink, or a private cruiser version with three cabins. Abovedecks, the spacious cockpit has suntanning mattresses on each side, seven lockers located underneath the seating areas, dual helm stations and a teak cockpit table designed to fit eight.
