New Model: Jeanneau 43 Velasco

Sailors say is about the voyage, while motor boaters will tell you its the destination.  Does the Jeanneau 42 Voyage call to sail boaters with such a name?  The Jeanneau 42 Voyage is a very difficult model to label. Designed by renowned British designer Tony Castro you can call it in many terms a planning motor boat with explorer looks.  But Jeanneau tells that the planning hull of the 42 Voyage can cruise comfortably at all speed with special features going into the project to make this possible.  Comfort wise the 42 Voyage offers two double cabins with en-suite shower heads below.  The living is located on the main deck this being an incredible light area thanks to the all round trawler like window.   Power is from twin Cummins 380hp with line shafts.
