Project: Austin Parker AP42 Sedan

Austin Parker presents the third version project of what was first of the new generation AP models designed by Fulvio de Simoni, the 42. So after the Open, came the Sport, and now Austin Parker presents the more practical and comfortable of the 42's the Sedan.  Important differences separate the Austin Parker 42 Sedan from its more similar sister the Open, invisible when you look from the boat sideways but viewable when you see it from aft.  The most important addition in the new Sedan is the addition of a patio door dividing the aft cockpit deck, from outside and inside when this is closed.  But thanks to this a reinvention of the cabin inside changes the 42 not only on top but also below in the lower deck layout.  The galley in the case of the 42 Sedan is moved on the main deck replacing the wet bar or daily kitchen up top, and L-shaped settee now becoming home to various uses from dining to relaxing. While below the area occupied by saloon and galley is transformed into a cabin with twin beds.  Basically the AP42 Sedan offers an interesting new perspective to the most successful model from the Austin Parker fleet, and guarantees a further success to a wider range of audience.
