20 Yr. Owner 1987 Jefferson Sundeck

Located in Brick N.J. on the hard.

Our location is perfect starting point for the 2019 America’s Great Loop. First stop, lower Manhattan - 43 miles.

Pictures in my albums. Click on Avatar - then album

LOA 41’8” Beam 14’3” Draft 3’7” Air draft with arch down 16’ Dry Weight 30,000 lbs.

Repowered in 1998 with new Cummins engines and with new ZF-Hurst transmissions. Currently 925 engine hrs., Vetus bow thruster, Nick Jackson 700 lb Dingy davit, Two Vacuflush heads, Mar-Quip boarding stairs and ladder, Custom teak and plexiglass sundeck enclosure with a dedicated Crusiair 16,000 Btu ac/heat unit, New (2019) Sunbrella bimini and strataglass enclosure, New bottom by PO, no hull blisters.

Some info: The Jefferson 42’ Sundeck was designed by Robert B. Harris marine architect. He was employed by Sparkman & Stephens for a decade. He was the designer of the Vancouver series of cruising sailboats, and a pioneer in the world of multi-hulls producing the Cheetah-Cat and the DC-14 Phantom cats, among others. The Jeffersons were built by Her Shine Marine for Jefferson Yachts of Jeffersonville Indiana. Her Shine produced over 500 Jeffersons and are now building 80+ ft yachts.

Features of the Jefferson 42: Pleasing lines, Semi displacement planing hull, Upper and lower helm stations, Wide side decks, Large fore deck, bridge and sundeck, hard sundeck roof with dingy cradle, Bridge seating for eight, Hinged electrically operated radar arch, Large swim platform with ladder and hot/cold shower, classic interior teak joinery throughout. Large salon windows, no built-in salon furniture, lots of storage, hanging closets and drawers in both state rooms, Salon overhead 6, 6”, Master stateroom overhead 6’ 3”, overhead teak grab rails in the salon, Bar in the salon. Galley down with ss deep double sink, Full size refrigerator with ice maker, Galley maid empress three burner electric stove and oven, microwave. Forward head with sink, Shower and vacuflush toilet, Master stateroom head with sink, tub/shower, Vacuflush toilet, Both heads have glass shower doors.

Layout: Forward stateroom with two single berths and head, double berth at dinette and centerline walk around queen berth in master stateroom aft, with ensuite head.

Condition: This boat was previously moored in a covered slip in NC for ten years, Then twenty years in a slip NJ. It was stored on the hard for 20 winters, under a custom fitted cover. The re-striped hull sides show close to new and the topsides polish up nicely. The Miss Chris looks more like a teenager than a thirty year old boat.

Use: I am a hands on owner that lives a five-minute drive from the slip. We are on the boat most every day in season. Our cruising has been to the Long Island Sound, Block Island, The Hudson river and the Chesapeake Bay. Being ten minutes away from Manasquan Inlet, most of our use has been day trips in the ocean between New York Harbor and Atlantic City, NJ.

This boat was repowered in 1998 with two new Cummins 6 BTA 5.9 M3 engines, replacing the original 210 HP engines and with two new ZF Model HSW 800 A2 transmissions. The Miss Chris can now cruise at 17.5 knots (20 mph) when you wanna trot. The displacement speed is 8 knots at 1450 rpm. As per the Cummins performance specs, the fuel consumption rates for both the 210 & 370 hp engines are virtually the same, up to 1400 RPM.
210 HP Engine: 1.3 GPH @ 800 RPM, 1.7 GPH @ 1000 RPM, 2.7 GPH @ 1400
370 HP Engine: 0.9 GPH @ 800 RPM, 1.4 GPH @ 1000 RPM, 2.7 GPH @ 1400 (data order is correct)

I contacted another owner of a Jefferson 42, same year and model with the 210 engines. He said that at 1500 RPM he averages a tad over seven knots. Differences in the trans gearing and the higher pitched props probably explain the Miss Chris’s higher speed at 1450 RPM.

The engines are equipped with Walker Airsep filters, Racor 900 primary fuel filters with vacuum gauges, oil changing system for the engines and generator, newer engine room blowers. Up-graded engine raw water pumps with Seaboard SMX 1750 pumps.
Vetus 9512 12v 8 hp bow thruster with a dedicated AGM 8D battery, ( 3 ft cable run), Battery switch, Charles smart charger.

Grand Banks shoppers. GBs are great boats no doubt, some say the best. If your money is burning a hole in your pocket, by all means go buy one. Or you could humble yourself and purchase this very nice Jefferson SUNDECK for half the price of a 1987 42 GB and cruise the loop, staying at marinas every night, buying all the fuel and still have money left over with the difference. Just a thought.

The selling price of recently sold Jefferson 42 Sundecks has averaged 85,000.
Asking 87,000 Reasonable offers encouraged
Buyers broker commissions considered.
