Just visited a beautiful 42' Sedan with a single Cat last weekend in the San Juans. It's a boat to lust over for sure!

Thanks, Bob. Do you happen to know that 42' sedan's vintage? Presumably the Cat was a 3208.

I don't remember what year she was probably late 80's. Beautiful fiberglass boat loaded with kids out on an adventure! He did say she was one of 11 that were built and no he would not sell it to me.

He had spent a few years doing refit ready for lots of cruising but then a health issue intervened (stroke) and he had to sell. I almost inspected, but in my opinion he wanted too much money for it at the time and he was not willing to negotiate on price. One unusual thing is that it had a 6 blade prop, probably because diameter is more limited with a single.

At the time there was also a 42 single (Meriwether) for sale in Washington State. It had an old John Deere 6404, and was 1974 year.

I did look at a single in Seattle that had a Cat 3208 in it (Golden Bough), which for some reason was mounted quite high. There was also one with a single 300HP Cat 3116 (Diane) for sale in Portland, OR.

They were about, but not sure if they still are. They are likely to be early 1980's models. It seemed to me that if you only intend running at displacement speeds then a single would be the best option. It also gave more space in what is a pretty cramped ER.
All very helpful, Brian - thanks! Were these all or mostly split-cabin classics? Or were these singles dispersed among the Europa-Sedan-MY styles, too? Particularly concur with your final two sentences.

They were all Classics. I wasn't interested in the other configurations at the time, so may not have noted any that were for sale.
