Throw me in this club too. A 42 is top on my next boat list. I’m thinking trip 525s though as I haven’t seen any 700 boats come up for sale and I like the minimal maintenance/turn key of the smaller power.

The 46 is NOT a bustled 42. completely different hulls/boats. 46 is a 5 step hull and a little wider in the nose of the boat. The 42 is a 4 step hull. Both are excellent riding boats. As far as the 1075 goes. Top ends should be done at 150hrs and the bottom ends will go 300 hrs. check the valve lash once a summer and do regular oil changes. In my 46 I cruise at 80 and WOT is 125+ . If you opt for a 42 w/700's after your first year you will be looking for more HP. then you will have to change that NXT transmission bc it will break.

Canít go wrong with a 42 and there are a couple real nice ones for sale right now. One in Massachusetts in the classifieds with 1075ís and newer six drives . Zero affiliation. These are outstanding boats in my opinion. Thereís a reason customers put big HP in these , they can handle it with comfort.

Maybe if your lucky, but after 80 hours the pin is pulled!

find a better mechanic that can lash the valves properly and check the spring pressures.

I agree on wind noise. The AT is deep and has good wind protection. Still after 4 hours of 70 plus mph, my ears felt as if I was blasting the stereo for that amount of time. A deep cockpit and good wind protection is a must.

i know they can and have gone 150 hours on top ends, but a lot of them donít make it that long.

Out of curiosity, as it is not what we are really discussing, how is the 39 Quattro? A few of them were set up with nice power and 6's. There are not a lot of posts on them, but some love them, some don't. Anyone on here actually owned one where they learned how to drive it?

There's a very nice 42 in Ohio for sale, not listed. I think it has 850s, I know it has 6s. It's spotless with a very nice trailer. PM me if you want contact info as I don't think it's listed but he is taking offers.
