Camper & Nicholsons Yachts Presents The Sagitta 42
Published: Thursday, 04 September 2014
The Sagitta 42 is the new sport cruiser by Camper & Nicholsons Yachts, designed for those who enjoy the sea for both sport and leisure.
The Sagitta 42 can be adapted to a variety of uses and can change radically with minimum effort. Custom elements throughout the boat ensure timeless beauty. As in every C&N Yacht, the priority is seaworthiness. The deep V hull, penned by the legendary Raymond C. Hunt design team, is a guarantee of performance. It excels in rough seas, with a gentle yet firm passage over the waves that allows the yacht to navigate effortlessly without needing to reduce speed.
C&N utilizes the latest technology available; vacuum infusion with closed cell foam sandwich for the hull sides and a solid, Kevlar-reinforced bottom and structural elements. This technique allows the weight to be concentrated in the lowest point, reducing pitch and roll. Moreover, the use of vinyl resin for the lamination ensures better protection over time against osmosis.
Conceived as a typical 'walk around', the deck areas are dedicated to al fresco living. Towards the bow, there is a protected sunbathing area dedicated windscreen and a sunpad that is recessed into the coachroof. Aft of the sunpad, at the helm there is a double seat and a large electronics panel with the option for more electronics in a second panel on the underside of the hard top. Then behind the double seat is a fully equipped galley. From the galley, aft to the transom, the space is completely customizable.
The Sagitta 42 will adapt to your favourite leisure activities. There are specific modules for each function: if you cruise with friends and family during the summer the cruiser layout will provide you with a complete dinette and a large second sunpad with a folding backrest that will extend its length.
The Sport Fisherman version is fully kitted out and for those who prefer diving, the Sport Diving layout that provides more area for guests and dive equipment. The modern and sophisticated design of the aft cockpit provides direct, but sheltered access to the large swim platform that is an integral part of the boat.
On the bow, the forward deck above the cabin is completely free from obstacles. The area is dedicated to another sunpad, whilst the anchor disappears electrically with only the beautiful, rounded steel bow remaining in view: one of the many custom details that distinguish the Sagitta 42.
The interior layout features two separate areas, to guarantee the owners' maximum privacy. Forward is dedicated to a master suite with large double bed, head with separate shower and a complete wardrobe. The suite has plenty of natural ventilation and air conditioning to provide a restful atmosphere. The second area, under the coachroof of the helm, offers a customisable space: galley with optional second refrigerator, stowage of equipment or crew quarters with a head.
Furthermore, the interior furnishings onboard the Sagitta 42 are rich in elaborate handmade details. The design is a mix of British tradition and Italian style, with precious materials and finishes and the ample use of solid wood panelling.
The Sagitta 42 is a bespoke day cruiser, where the day may never end.
