The Xc 42 offers true flexibility. The adaptable sail plan ensures superb pace on all angles, with options including an inner forestay (without runners). The Xc 42 may fly either a 140% overlapping genoa or smaller 108% genoa, 90% self-tacking jib, or asymmetric spinnaker, for relaxing sailing on long bluewater passages and short stopovers, sailing with two crew or a full complement of guests.
Sail area may be easily adjusted thanks to a furling forestay and slab-reefing mainsail, or optional in-boom furling. Anchoring and mooring are also stress-free, thanks to a bow thruster, electric windlass, large bow locker, and optional stern davits for a tender.
