Start at the stern of the boat and check out the platform between the outboards, which makes it for easy boarding and debarking, as well as access to the water for swimmers. From there you can step into the rear of the cockpit to find port and starboard lounges that, thanks to their quickly removable seat backs, can be rear- or forward-facing.

While you’re in the rear cockpit, take a close look at the rigging wells for Yamaha outboards. Powerplay manufactured them in a split-level configuration so that the bolts for the outboard brackets could find purchase in four– and three-inch-thick sections of the transom.

As you stroll to the helm station, you'll find power bolsters with flip-up armrests. The dash is well-equipped, but the most compelling features at the helm station are the battery switches in their own little locker. Having the switches in that location likely will keep owners from forgetting to turn them off.

The helm station features Garmin GPS Sounder, Linco Trim Tabs, ACR Spotlight, Optimis 460 Joystick, Clarion Stereo System with JL Speakers, Active Helm, Icon VHF, Maxwell Windlass Control, USB Ports, and STIDD Helm Chairs. 

So large is the cabin inside the console of the 42-footer that it has separate head locker—divided by a hinged and locking door—from the twin berth. The head features a full size shower. 

An uber-comfy lounge ahead of the console is pretty much standard fare on most of today’s performance-oriented (as opposed to angling) center consoles, and the 42′ Performance Open has a good one. But it’s made even better—and raised far above the norm—by flip-up armrests on its port and starboard sides. Lots of in-deck storage in the bow and cockpit areas. 



The 42 has a complete A/C'd cabin with more than six feet of headroom, a full-size head compartment with a shower and a privacy door, and a real galley area.

Comfortable twin berth. 


On the 42, the engines are mounted to the extreme port and starboard sides of the transom, much as they would on
