Maine yacht designers are famous for favoring common sense over the dictates of fashion. That trait comes through loud and clear in the classic lines of the Spencer Lincoln-designed NEB 42 being built by NEB. Evolved from rugged fishing-boat hulls, the 42's fine, graceful entry slices through waves without pounding and provides a smooth, dry ride. The NEB 42 is a capable passagemaker for extended cruising (and her 20-knot cruising speed will expand the cruising grounds for day trips). And the boat also has the right stuff to qualify as a serious, all-weather sportfishing vehicle. The NEB 42 is available as a sedan with an enclosed main cabin and large open cockpit or as an aft-cabin flybridge cruiser (main picture above) with three sleeping cabins; choose between a teak, cherry, or mahogany interior. Like all NEB boats, the 42 is custom-built to the owner's specs. Also available: the NEB 31, 35, 38, 42, and 48.
