This 1986 Endeavour 42 - "SeaVousPlay" has been completely rebuilt by the current owner - a retired engineer in need of a project. From 8 coats of vinyl ester on her bottom to a museum quality table in the salon. She is amazing with numerous upgrades and ready to travel. A must see.
As an avid sailor and fisherman, I bring to you over 45 years of on the water experience. Through the years I have enjoyed a variety of positions in the marine industry - a former director of the J-World sailing schools, rigger, professional coach, and yacht racer. I bring to you a vast understanding of boats large and small, monohulls to multihulls and sailing or power. If you are looking to sell your yacht please give me a call or text to 443 822 0984 or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The hull is molded as a sandwich core construction of 1” Balsa Grain Balsa Core between laminates (layers) of polyester resin and fiberglass woven roving and multi-directional chopped strand fiber (MCSF). The keel is molded integrally with the hull and all ballast is contained inside.
The exterior finish is Awlgrip (off-white) with off-white Awlgrip non-skid decks.
The deck and cockpit, like the hull, are molded as a single unit of a combination of polyester resin and fiberglass woven roving and MCSF. Plywood coring is incorporated between layers of fiberglass in the cabin top, deck, and cockpit sole areas to give additional stiffness.
The joint between the hull and the deck is one of the most important assembly steps in the construction of a yacht. The method used by Endeavour Yacht is simple, strong, and reliable.
During assembly, the top of the integral hull flange is liberally coated with the combination adhesive/sealant. The deck is then lowered onto the hull and fastened in place with the stainless steel bolts. When the bolts are tightened, the excess compound is forced into all the crevices and out the sides. The teak cap is then installed, bedded in a heavy layer of the same compound and secured in place, doubly ensuring water tightness.
All ballast is internally mounted inside the keel, which is molded integrally with the hull. Cast pieces of lead are placed in the hull, encapsulated in a polyester bonding resin, and then covered with a layer of woven roving to form a fiberglass cap. When finished, the ballast becomes a structural part of the hull.
The rudder is molded as a single piece of solid high-density foam with a protective skin of fiberglass and a gelcoat finish. The foam material is of high strength structural grade and has exceptional toughness. The rudder post, molded integrally with the rudder, is solid stainless steel, which is welded to a steel blade in the interior of the rudder. Where the rudder post passes through the hull, water tightness is ensured by means of a stuffing box.
The pedestal steering system operates with stainless steel cables rotating a radial quadrant bolted and keyed to the rudder post. The cables run through a conduit attached to a massive steel support frame at the rudder and the motor mount then to the pedestal where they are shackled to a stainless steel chain running over a sprocket on the steering wheel shaft. She is equipped with an Edison wheel and emergency tiller. The autopilot is oversized (Robertson/Simrad AP22, HLD2000L) and integrated with the GPS.
All spars (mast, boom, and spreaders) are extruded aluminum 6061-T6 alloy, with a protective coating and all external surfaces. The mast on the E42 is stepped through the cabin roof onto the keel.
The forestay attaches to the stemhead fitting at the bow. This is fabricated of welded stainless steel and through bolted to the hull with back-up plates. All other stays and shrouds are attached to the chainplates at the edge of the cabin house.
These chainplates are stainless steel fittings bolted to the main bulkhead. Additional fiberglass reinforcement is packed into the hull in all chainplate areas. SeaVousPlay has new chainplate bulkheads (Port and starboard) constructed of primary and secondary marine ply.
All standing rigging is attached to the chainplates with adjustable turnbuckles that allow fine tuning of the rigging tension. The standing and running rigging has been inspected annually and replaced when warranted.
The E42 was designed as a center cockpit with 1 forward double v-berth, 1 single settee, 1 double convertible settee, 1 aft double, 2 heads w/showers, and a large aft owners stateroom.
The interior of the E42 is built up of wood. First, a framework of floor timbers is constructed and place in the bilge and heavily bonded in place with woven roving. A plywood sole is glued and screwed on top of these floor timbers and bonded to the hull all around its periphery with woven roving.
All timbers and plywood are saturated with polyester resin before assembly to seal all exposed wood.
Next, the entire sole is covered with teak and holly flooring, bonded in place with a waterproof adhesive. All bulkheads are bonded to the hull with two layers of woven roving on both sides. SeaVousPlay has new chainplate bulkheads (Port and starboard) constructed of primary and secondary marine ply.
Eighteen ports - all replaced in 2001 with Bomar. Eleven ports open (with screens) and seven ports are fixed.
The galley includes five double-door cabinets, four drawers, three fiddled compartments - all teak. The galley includes refrigerator, freezer, microwave, new LPG stove with bake and broil capabilities.
SeaVousPlay has a center-line queen berth in the aft stateroom with a private head and ample storage.
"SeaVousPlay" was re-powered in 2007 with a Yanmar 4JH-2TE, 62hp fresh water intercooled diesel engine. There are 1001 hours on the repowered engine.
All models have solid stainless steel propeller shafts. The diameter of the E42 shaft is 1.25".
The propeller shaft is supported at the inboard, or engine end, by the shaft coupling. A square key is used to prevent turning of the shaft in the coupling. In addition, a stainless steel bolt with locking nut passes through the coupling and shaft to prevent backing out of the shaft in reverse.
The shaft passes through the hull at the stuffing box. Water tightness is ensured by the packing material in the stuffing box.
The fuel tank change started the rebuild project for "SeaVousPlay". She has a 1/8" Aluminum tank with epoxy coat. The tank sits on 3" rail in open keel bilge. The tank has multiple pickups, is bonded and owner guarantees the tanks will never pickle.
SeaVousPlay has a full winter cover and "a couple of truck loads of stuff" says the engineer that can be included in a deal.
