New Model: Ilver 42 Mirable Open

It is always difficult to touch a born classic, and this is basically the story of the Mirable from Ilver, presented as 39 in 1991, reworked to 41 in 1999, and now after two decades of its productions becomes the 42.  Few models have lasted so much as the Ilver Mirable and interestingly the same hull has always been used; extended about a foot with the 41 version below, and the super structure also changed next to little.  This latest 42 version actually presents the biggest changes up top of the trio created in the past two decades plus, with some neat touches happening on the foredeck, restyled windshield which still respects the original, and changes to the radar arch which now seems more upright. The Ilver Mirable can actually taunt other models for being pretty much unchanged in twenty years plus, and not many builders can make such a claim in any of there models.  The 42 Mirable Open comes from Ilver after the company presented the HT version a couple of years back, due to demand coming from the customers, and now the company presents these changes in this version.  For the rest the 42 Mirable Open keeps the properties of its predecessors of a three double cabins lower deck still impressive considering the not so much beam, and a cockpit which would not look out of place in much more sports orientated boat.
