35. Affordable Forty-Two Foot DREAM Yacht! Should We Buy? | Learning the Lines – DIY Sailing

The Endeavour 42 is a spacious and comfortable yacht that you could easily live aboard. We were initially drawn to the model because of the center cockpit design, as well as the size and layout. The yacht featured is listed for sale for just under $60,000 here:

I (Jordan) fell in love with another Endeavour 42 that was fully restored and upgraded. This boat was named Cleopatra and called Clearwater her home port. Knowing that we’d never buy that specific boat, we figured we may be able to buy one that’s in decent shape and refit it ourselves. I’ve been on the look out for E42s for sale that were more reasonably priced. When I saw the craigslist listing for this boat, I knew we had to at least take a look.

Both Randi and I are glad we toured this boat, because for some reason we didn’t see it. We aren’t in love with the E42. I think seeing an E42 that’s not in immaculate and upgraded condition opened our eyes to show us the boat really isn’t anything special… at least for us. I think I fell in love with Cleopatra’s upgrades, not the actual boat model.

Another reason for not loving the E42 is that it’s not regarded as a bluewater cruiser. I think our next boat will definitely be a boat that’s generally regarded as such.
