Coastal Craft 42 EF

Introducing the New Coastal Craft 42EF (Express/Fish)

The next-level, exciting sportfishing yacht.

This all-aluminum, high-speed, yacht-finished sport sedan is powered with your choice of quad outboards between 1,400HP to 1,800HP. The 42EF features a new, aggressive deep V hull with larger reversed chines and strakes than their earlier 40’ and 45’ Flybridge models. The new hull was specifically designed to carry higher speeds—up to 60 mph—through larger sea states while maintaining a smooth, stable, and dry ride.

Powered with quad Yamaha 425OTXs, the top speed is 52 knots (60 mph) with comfortable cruising speeds up to 40 knots (46 mph). The 600-gallon fuel capacity ensures the range will meet most boaters’ demands for exploring.

The standard layout features two staterooms and one head and shower. The saloon features a large galley up; a spacious U-shaped settee, starboard helm, and port side front double seat. With interior seating for nine including the captain, you and your guests will surely be comfortable enjoying the ride and destination no matter the temperature.

The forward owner’s accommodations are very spacious with a large stateroom including a partial walk-around queen berth. The head and shower are enormous and are located across the companionway from each other to ensure a full suite experience is offered to its owners. The second stateroom is located aft with two single berths that are capable of becoming a single queen-sized berth, if required. The separation created with this layout provides unbeatable privacy between the two staterooms.

The interior joinery is an abundance of black walnut mixed with contemporary soft panels. Solid surface countertops, teak flooring, and well-engineered lighting solutions provide the warmest and most comfortable interior space in its size. The one-piece curved windshield, opening side glass-in-glass windows, and massive sunroof with additional glass ceiling panels really make a true open boat without battling the elements. 

The cockpit deck offers your choice of layouts. With port and starboard side doors, it’s easy getting yourself, or your catch, on and off. There are options for serious sportfishing, including one or two live wells, insulated fish boxes or freezer boxes in the decks, outriggers, cockpit control station, and Marlin Tower. The raised mezzanine deck offers your choice of port side double-wide seating or a tackle cabinet. Additionally, port and starboard fold-down seats are recessed into the transom on either side of the center transom live well. The cockpit can be equipped for serious tournament fishing and/or hanging about, or a combination of both. 

The walk-around decks going forward are wide and safe, with excellent handrails on both sides of the walkway. The optional upper Marlin tower provides for an incredible viewpoint while hunting game fish, or it’s simply a nice spot to be when the weather permits. The large foredeck can be equipped with lounging pads for laying out or enjoying the view at anchor or while going slow. 

Finally, some of the remaining features and options include: choice of Yamaha, Mercury, and Suzuki outboards with related controls and steering specific to the outboard brand; a SeaKeeper 5; 9KW generator; air conditioning with reverse air heat; diesel furnace for northern boating; large battery capacity; water maker; cockpit control station; and bow thruster.
