Atlantic 42

Just day dreaming here. I absolutely love Chris White's designs and have trolled "yachtworld" regularly dreaming about buying one. There has been a 42' atlantic for sale for some time (in Maine) on the site. Just curious if anyone has taken a good look at it? I wonder why it has been languishing on the market? Just curious, I'm not ready to buy and haven't anything to do with that boat (full disclosure!).

thanks
The dude

I'm also a fan of Chris White. Before he changed his website he had plans up there for an Atlantic 42 MKII. It was much like the old, but with a wider cabin design (similar to that in the A55/57), a flatter foredeck, and a more aggressive sail plan (as well as other tweaks). For some reason it isn't up on the new site. When I asked him about it this was his response:

Quote:
Jacob,

The Mk2 was put on hold for a little while. There was a builder and client all ready to start the project. The client had a financial set back and the builder started another project.

But the Mk2 design can be started whenever someone is ready to buy one.

Also check out this blog: Sailing Adventures of David & Kathy

They sail an A42 - s/v Lightspeed. I believe Dave also has an account on these forums if you want to talk to him about his boat.

I'm no expert, but we've sailed our new to us A-42 about 6,500 nm in the last year and happy to share our thoughts. Just arrived in San Diego after a pretty quick trip up from Panama.

I'm no expert either but have sailed our A42 "Linda" extensively in the Pacific over the last ten years and am also happy to share my thoughts. Met David and Kathy in in Cabo recently (hi!). FWIW, I think the A42 is a great cruising boat. I'm clueless about why one would languish on the market. Have to assume it is something particular to the boat.

Well, fancy meeting you here, Tom! Glad to see that your strange backwards cat made it to Hawaii after all... we miss y'all on the Comedy net.

Cheers,

Green Fuzzy Tomatoes! Oh my goodness. Wonderful to see that you're still keeping the Antipodes securely anchored. Just for the record this is our fourth swing through Hawaii... Not sure if that means we made it here or we just keep missing... Either way I think you must be responsible 'cause you taught us everything we know about cruising, HAM radio and the meaning of life... Or so it seems. We're hoping to do another SW Pacific run next year ending up in NZ again. It would be great to have an eyeball with you two and see the mighty I 2. We certainly miss you both and the comedy net (and Tony's). Sadly, these days we really only check in with Pacsea.net and only when making passages...

Cheers back at ya!

I cannot find this boat for sale, has it sold? How much was the asking price when it was listed does anyone know out of interest? Thanks, Tim.

Duality’s listing has disappeared in the last week or two. As I remember it was in the mid to upper 300’s. The only thing unique about the boat that I could tell was the in-boom furler.

A55 Segue’s listing was gone for a week or two and now its back maybe Duality will pop back up too.

Thanks for that. I think Duality has been sold, or at least there is one that is in Maine that has been bought so...
Thanks again

Duality is Siesta

A partner and I have closed on Siesta (ex-Duality) and will be sailing in Maine, the Chesapeake and the Bahamas this year.

She has been refitted with a conventional boom and new Mainsail.

Congrats! I'm jealous.

I do have a request though, for you and Agility. If either of you have the time...take a video camera and walk through your boat and share your thoughts with us. I'm a fan of Chris White's work and I think his boats are some of the most innovative and best designed floating around today. Yet, for all their merits there is an impressive lack of media about the boats and how people feel about them.

These are great boats, congratulations SD.
We are saving for one if/when they ever come available, although naturally we dream of the larger ones, I see there is a 48 and a 55 for a similar price.
Any thoughts on that? I guess the 55 is older with centreboards and I don't know how much a new 48 is valued at? perhaps not much less than the 57.
