Bringing home our new boat

We just took our first cruise ever, 260 miles from Manteo, NC to Kent Narrows, MD. Three and a half days through the Albermarle Sound, Albermarle Chesapeake Canal and Chesapeake Bay. A lifetime dream come true.

Nice phots

Good looking boat. Is that radar arch added or part of the original design.

It appears to be original but I don't really know, they could have added the sundeck hardtop and arch, they appear to be part of the same construction. There were two prior owners, it's a 1986.

The radar arch, the vertical sides in the sundeck roof, the salon door and the fly bridge layout look very similar to my Nova 36 (FHB) is a 87.

Looks like you have a aft cockpit. I am going to wish i had one when i catch some fish.

Congratulations on the nice boat.

She IS a FHB, a 42, her cockpit was the thing all the others were missing when we looked at them... we didn't know until we saw hers.. what we really wanted but hadn't found :} We were like "ahhhhhh" got it.
