POST 42 (2000) "Hitchin' Post"


The Post 42 was designed as an affordable alternative to the more expensive Post 43. Powered with less costly engines (1997–2009), she’s built on a low-deadrise semi-V hull with a shallow keel and a wide 15' 9 beam. Like many convertibles her size, the 42 comes with a conventional two-stateroom interior, however the rich appointments, excellent joinery, and quality furnishings set her apart from most of the competition.

The salon features a built-in entertainment center and facing settees. Post engineers even were able to fit a laundry center into the companionway. Topside, the Post’s extended flybridge is bigger than it looks, with seating for eight, rod storage, and a well-arranged helm console. Because the bridge ladder is recessed into the bait prep console, the cockpit (partially shaded by the bridge overhang) is less cluttered than many convertibles.

Notable features include teak interior joinery, a top-notch engine room (accessed from under the deckhouse step), two in-deck fish boxes, transom door, and bow pulpit.
