Broker's Comments

The 1980s brought us a great many aft cabin trawlers in the 40 to 46 foot range. This particular model, the 42 Vantare, has done as fine a job as any at giving its owners an exceptional amount of room, a well-lit interior, and lots of both indoor and outdoor living space. And it's all done it with classy styling. The interior has mirrors in virtually every room providing a feeling of spaciousness, plus the furnishings are very attractive. As a potential live-aboard she would be quite a comfortable boat. This vessel compares very favorably to a Ponderosa or a Californian.
