The classic ketch rigged Swanson 42 is well known for her cruising qualities, comfortable layout and build quality.
Antigua is for sale in good sailing condition and a perfect liveaboard vessel with just a few items to complete her.
Rigging has been replaced and her mast overhauled in 2013. PLUS her hull has been peeled back from the waterline down by Ozpeel Marine using their innovative and specialised techniques that are used worldwide, however only available in 2 locations in Australia. This extensive and very thorough technique was commissioned at a cost of $60,000 and followed the process below:
>Remove the contaminated paint and laminate using our in house designed, specialist peeling machine.
>Then apply post curing blankets to the hull, these are blankets are applied under absolute vacuum and heated to post cure the contaminants that cause osmosis.
>Apply a vinylester laminate that is far superior and exceeds original factory laminate and
>Finally apply epoxy mastic coatings and anti-fouling which provides unparalleled protection from the water's harmful elements.
More nformation on the process is avaiable at www. Ozpeelmarine. Com. Au.

Antigua is powered by the impressive and well known Gardner 72HP diesel engine, which have proven far more robust and dependable than many of today's modern engines. This large and reliable engine has enough torque to push through any sea; and works without the concern of extra bolt on components that can prove inconsistent and troublesome at times.

In May 2020 she was slipped with new antifoul and propspeed applied plus anodes were replaced. The hull was yet again in prefect condition and proof the hull peel & treatment has not only held up; but left her in better condition than when first built.

Antigua's original keel hung rudder has also been replaced with a spade rudder further aft to lighten steering in bar crossings or following seas; plus add extra manoeuvrability when coming into berth.

The top deck on Antigua has also had the original timber replaced, then re-glassed; and coated in 2 pack marine paint & a nonskid membrane. The bones of this vessel are extremely strong. A feature of the 42 is the large and spacious aft cabin with privacy plus moving forwards there is sleeping for 6 more crew comfortably. We love the large, covered & dry centre cockpit to enjoy any voyage in comfort. The saloon is spacious as you would expect from such a large beamy vessel and there is a well designed galley plus enclosed head. We think this Swanson 42 is priced very well with all major works completed; topped off with fresh antifoul only 3 months ago.
