1989 42 Classic

Hi - I am considering purchasing a 1989 42 Classic. It has 375 HP Cats and cruises at 18 Knots. I was wondering how these narrow beam ( before 1991 wide beam ) boats handle in choppy conditions? It has no stabilizers. Thanks

We have a GB the same exact year and engines and ours does fine.

Everyone that rides in ours when we have less than favorable conditions (ocean, sound, river) comments on the way it handles the conditions.

18K?? Hydrofoils? Be interested in the fuel burn at that clip.
