Manufacturer Provided Description
J-42 is designed to fulfill two goals: privacy for each of two couples when cruising, or ample space and convenience for one couple living aboard for an extended period of time. Sailing J-42 is easy for one person, thanks to superb wheel response and a common-sense sail plan. J-42 balances well and sails upwind faster under mainsail only than some cruisers using both main and large genoa. A self-draining deck anchor-storage locker, behind the standard Lewmar electric windlass, is big enough for an anchor rode and cruising spinnaker, ready-to-fly in a "snuffer" sock. A watertight collision bulkhead separates this locker from a spacious owners' stateroom with twin berths (convertible to an over-size double) The main cabin features exceptional joinerwork in varnished cherry with cold-molded fiddles and oval door trim. Vertical panels are in low-maintenance, antique white Formica. Two main settees double as sea-berths and are pitched outboard 5 degrees for secure sleeping at anchor. Stainless overhead grabrails are excellent handholds, drying racks and lee-cloth anchors. The J-shaped galley is well-ventilated next to the companionway and features a recessed, deep, double sink in a Corian countertop. Five deck hatches over interior living spaces are mounted on the cabin trunk to permit use when sailing. Exceptional ventilation throughout is provided by four Dorade intakes, 11 opening ports and the dodger-protected companionway. TPI's patented "SCRIMP" technology draws the air out of cored hull and deck laminates, and draws a slow-curing resin into every void in a single step. It's a better and healthier way to build boats. It offers higher strength at lower weight, and a void-free laminate far superior to hand lay-up or chopper-gun construction, while also eliminating toxic styrene emissions. The significant saving in weight is added to the bottom of the keel in the form of a lead bulb, shaped as an inverted wedge with a tapered tail aft. This greatly lowering J-42's center of gravity for greater stability, which in turn means better sail-carrying ability.
