Berthon Spain are delighted to announce the first look at the new Marex 42 Gourmet Cruiser.
The Marex 42 Gourmet Cruiser stands to build on the success of the Marex 330 Scandinavia which was awarded the accolade of 2022 European Power Boat of the Year, following her highly successful launch at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2021.
The 42 has been developed in-house by Espen Aalrud, together with Naval Architecture from Nikl design, and with exterior and interiors from VOM creations. The new flagship will be 13.36m long with a beam of 4.25m and will be available with a choice of Gourmet or Scandinavian cockpit configurations, which can be chosen depending on the client’s preference.
The Gourmet cruiser will be ideal for long, relaxing days at anchor with a large flowing cockpit, generous aft sofa and additional bench seat to starboard. The large extending table can be rotated and dropped to create an additional sun-bathing space or additional bed. Marex will offer solutions on the starboard side, such as BBQ, refrigerator, ice maker, sofa or storage.
The Scandinavian cockpit includes a three-part rear wall door and glass wall, which can be electrically lowered, creating a wonderful open social area or an enclosed cockpit saloon.
The galley is second to none, with every provision made for on-board entertainment or extended trips away. The galley features a social bar with floating bar stools on the gourmet cockpit configuration, microwave oven, generous fridge / freezer space and dish washer. Solar panels with 1000W will even help to keep the batteries topped up all summer!
The bathing platform is the perfect place to spend time close to the water, to swim or to relax, with the two large benches with soft backs for added comfort. These benches offer additional storage with space for fenders, gas bottles and mooring lines. The platform is hydraulic and can be lowered and specified with a custom dinghy launch system.
The roof system has a sliding sun roof, which very quickly opens up the roof over the aft deck at the touch of the button or protects the area from the sun. The aft canopy is the “fastest in the world” and slides around the frame from dedicated canopy lockers. The canopy now tightens with a single grip, without buttons or rubber rings. The whole boat can be closed in seconds!
The ergonomic helm position has been carefully designed to provide the perfect position when seated or standing with the ability to look above the hard top roof. There is careful provision for the latest navigation equipment including three large plotters, clean instrumentation and comfortable helm and co-pilot chairs. You have two further chairs on the port side, allowing four persons to sit facing forwards when underway. There are also two large opening side doors, providing direct access from the cockpit saloon onto the side deck.
The Marex 42 will be available with a choice of a two or three cabin layout.
The two cabin solution comes with a very generous bathroom and separate luxurious en-suite for the owner with direct access from the front cabin. The middle cabin can be specified with washer / dryer. The three cabin configuration provides twin amidships cabins.
The accommodation will have larger drawers with the great utilisation of space always expected from Marex, the option of air conditioning and bridge and open feel.
The Marex 42 will be available with IPS or shaft drive installations and will have the option to specify with a larger, quiet generator and gyro stabiliser for even further comfort. The tankage and battery capacities are by far the best in class.
