 Cockpit and Deck
The 42s7 features an aft cockpit layout. The cockpit is compact but
very comfortable, with good foot bracing for the crew when the boat heels.
Lewmar 52 self-tailing primary sheet winches are located well forward on the
cockpit coamings, which renders them operable by the crew though not
conveniently from the helm. The mainsheet and traveler, plus all halyards and
reefing lines, run through stoppers to Lewmar 44 self-tailers on the aft end of
the cabin. Sitting at the helm is comfortable from windward or leeward, either
when level or heeled. The cockpit lockers are very large, offering more than
ample storage for sails, rubber boats and other bulky or dirty gear. The white
deck non-skid is terrific. The flush anchor locker on the
foredeck encloses a manual anchor winch and provides access to the under-deck
roller furler. Cabin top handrails are stainless for low maintenance. The mast is an aluminum Blue Label by Sparcraft, featuring slightly swept-back double spreaders and discontinuous rod rigging. It is stepped through the deck for extra stiffness and security. The cruising mast is stiff enough to make runners unnecessary. The full-battened mainsail is fit
with conventional slides but still it hoists easily. For ease of handling, the
mainsail is equipped with lazy jacks and the jib is on a manual-control furler.

Going below, the ladder descends at a user-friendly 30-degree angle, and the
edges of the steps are curved up to 27 degrees at each edge to keep one’s foot
from sliding off when heeled. Access to the engine is quite straightforward,
accomplished by lifting the stairs or unhinging additional access doors in the
after cabin enclosures.

The airy interior features three staterooms one fore and two aft.. Aluminum handrails along the interior cabin sides are well placed.Ventilation occurs by way of two Dorade boxes, four opening Lewmar hatches and four large opening portlights on each side of the cabin. To my mind the Beneteau stylists again promoted form over function; the ports open outboard so that
lines and feet are apt to catch on them when they are deployed under way.
The galley benefits from excellent execution with lots of counter space. The
icebox is notably large, the propane stove easily gimbals to 40 degrees on
either tack and its recess is fit with a stove protection bar for the cook’s
