Full Specifications

Aft Deck

The aft deck is fully covered by the boat deck making it the ideal place to enjoy al fresco dining, morning coffee or your favorite sundowner, and nighttime lighting is provided by 3-way overhead LED lights. There is a wing door to starboard facilitating enclosing the aft deck to extend the season. The large transom door allows easy access to the fiberglass swim platform, and there is a hot and cold fresh water shower in the transom. There is a large lazarette hatch leading to the voluminous lazarette storage. As with all the decks on DARE TO DREAM, the aft deck is non-skid fiberglass, keeping maintenance to an absolute minimum.


Entering the saloon through double doors from the aft deck you have the large saloon, larger than most 42's by virtue of the widebody arrangement. To starboard is custom built-in storage, entertainment cabinet and galley, completely open to the saloon.  To port is a leather wall hugger recliner couch with electric controls. Forward of the couch is the day head and bidet. The sole is fully carpeted with a custom fit high-end carpet and a high density pad. Under the carpet and pad is the traditional Krogen teak parquet sole in perfect condition. All of the saloon windows are non-opening, eliminating any leaks and giving unobstructed views. Each window has a teak valance and shades that raise and lower from either the top or the bottom allowing for both privacy and natural light while aboard at the dock.


Day Head

One unique feature of DARE TO DREAM is her day head located on the port side at the forward end of the saloon. There is a Corian vanity and sink, electric commode and bidet. There is also an opening port.


The open-faced galley is at the forward starboard side of the saloon. The Corian topped counters and dual integrated sinks give the cook plenty of room, all the while being part of the social festivities. Major components include:

Master Stateroom

Located forward, the master stateroom has an island queen-size berth with a Neuropedic custom mattress. Beneath the berth are the separate Asko washer and dryer, and the tops make the perfect folding table. To port and starboard are cedar lined hanging lockers, and there is a mirrored chest of drawers. There are 4 stainless steel opening ports and an overhead hatch giving plenty of natural ventilation and light.


Another unique feature of DARE TO DREAM is the head which has both a shower and a tub. There is a Corian vanity and sink, electric commode and 2 stainless steel ports. There is also voluminous locker storage.


Up and forward from the saloon and galley is the raised pilothouse. The helm display and recessed wheel are unique to DARE TO DREAM.
