Hailed as an instant classic on her launch, the Trader 42 Aft Cab Command Bridge impresses on every level. Her innovative layouts, exceptional design detailing and top performance have stunned purchasers and press alike.
Among the smallest Category A yachts on the market, the 42 is just as comfortable making waves at 20 knots as she is cruising at displacement speeds.
Trader has developed sophisticated design and manufacturing solutions to offer more than 70 layout possibilities. These include three distinct exterior body styles, as well as accommodation choices (including walk-around king-size island bed in the aft cabin), power options and mooring alternatives. Trader offers all this choice to make sure that the 42 you purchase is exactly the yacht required for where - and how - you choose to cruise.
The standard 42 has a fully-enclosable command bridge helm position on the aft deck. This version features a folding radar arch, making it the first vessel of it's size with the flexibility to cruise under bridges and still have a flybridge drive position. The command bridge has a height from the water of 11'5" or 3.50m with bimini down and arch electrically folded.
