MBM team catch glimpse of new aft cabin cruiser in Guernsey

MBM’s Neale Byart and Claire Frew came across the new Aquastar 42 moored in St Peter Port’s QE2 marina. The boat is due to make its world debut at the PSP Southampton Boat Show, on berth M025. 

As reported in the September issue of MBM, the 42 is aimed squarely at serious, liveaboard cruisers, delivering some fun features at the same time. The major improvement to traditional aft cabin design is the extra window area worked in across the boat, the aft cabin benefitting from a near 360 degree wrap of tinted glass. The raised deck is well protected by deep coamings, both cabins are en suite and the galley is equipped with domestic-sized appliances.
