New Model: Austin Parker AP42 Sport

Basing itself on the successful Austin Parker 42 Open what is a hard top traditional lobster looking cruiser, designer Fulvio De Simoni and this North Italian builder create the Sport version. This new model while loosing the hard top on the main deck from the original keeps the remaining qualities from the Open version. Both the builder and designer here have to be congratulated as the AP42 Sport is a bit unique keeping its traditional looks, but still having the practicality of the lobster boat. You have the same all around bulwark protected decks, flash single floor cockpit, and the same interior cabin plan. Here you have a single cabin and saloon, or a two cabins plan choice. Power is also the same as the Open, with AP 42 Sport reaching 34 knots max with twin 480hp Yanmar engines.
