The 42 has the minimalistic nautical feel in its interior that’s common to all Palm Beach models. Highlights include analog gauges on the forward bulkhead separating the galley down and master on the accommodations level. The gauges, done by Georg Jensen, help lend the interior a classic feel that harks back to a simpler time. Elsewhere, the brightwork is impeccable, particularly in the cockpit, and fit and finish is exemplary throughout. Both of those aspects are hallmarks of the Palm Beach brand, and they are the main reasons — along with a smooth ride and eminent cruisability — that the relatively young yard has been able to make its mark in the always competitive Down East market.
