I had not really considered the 420 but after looking around a bit a few are falling into our price
range of 350k max. I was just curious about likes dislikes etc. How the nacelle arrangement works out. I like having the front cross beam. We really wanted separate shower
stalls and this boat has it without having to find an owners version. Also with the owner version what is done with the space the berth took up, storage
Anyway thanks for looking and we look forward to your replies.
The extra space is used for a lounging couch, workdesk, and an extra large head
with full standing shower.
There is a difference between the 420's and 421's, you should be aware of this when looking/speaking with brokers.
The 420's were originally release with an experimental hybrid-electric engine
system. However, many or most have been convered to dual diesel
. On those boats, the original generator
remains (which was designed to provide primary propulsion), which is heavily overpowered and I have heard kind of loud compared to other generators.
The 421's have an updated hull
design, which affects it's weight and performance compared to the 420.
420's are older, 421's are newer. Likely in 1 year you'll see more 421's in this range.
