This incredible Trader 42 Signature has so much to offer and it is hard to believe it has so much space and accommodation for a boat of its size. It has two proper full size cabins, both of which have en-suite facilities, as well as a really bright and spacious saloon with leather seating, a generous Galley with full size AEG Appliances & fridge freezer. Out on deck, she has a lovely helm position that is raised for great visibility and has seating for the Crew & Guests but also has an electrically lowering radar arch, which was originally designed for navigating the French Canal system. Although this particular boat has less than 400 hours use, it has been all through the French Canals and up to the Baltic Sea, but has now been bought back to the UK by road to be sold. Other great features include a med spec of an Mastervolt Generator, Hydraulic Passerelle and full Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning but it also has a separate Eberspacher cabin heating system for when the temperature dips. With a full site of Electronics, this boat is equipped for long distance cruising but yet is still easily handled & highly manoeuvrable. Furthermore, the Trader 42 is a Category A rated boat, so is certified and designed for extended offshore Cruising. With its Navy Blue Hull and bright white topsides, this Gentleman’s Cruiser certainly looks the part and offers so much boat for its next Owner to enjoy.

Trader are known for building great solid boats using quality craftsmanship. The Trade 42 Signature has been one of the most popular popular models they made as it offers a perfect balance of style and stability coupled with space luxury and comfort. This particular boat is in lovely condition and offers a massive saving over new. Inspection of this boat is highly recommended and she is currently lying in Southampton and is available for viewings at any time through Aspire Boat Sales.
