The Whitby 42 is a spacious, sturdy and rugged full-keeled, heavy displacement center cockpit ketch rigged cruiser.

Designed by Ted Brewer in 1971 for Whitby Boat Works in Ontario, Canada, this was Ted’s most commercially successful design. The high freeboard allows for a voluminous interior, a spacious engine room, and a very comfortable aft cabin. Ample water tankage provides for showers in two heads, and a large fuel capacity assures good range under power. A cavernous refrigerator/freezer keeps perishables during an extended cruise, a locker for wet oilskins abuts the main companionway ladder, and a handy workbench sits in the passage aft by the engine room.

Powered by a Ford Lehman inboard diesel which gives plenty of power for motorsailing, although with a generous sail area of 875 square feet, a long waterline, and well- designed underbody, these ketches sail remarkably well - owners have reported speeds of 7.5 to 8 knots on a close reach.

Comfortable, seaworthy, and forgiving of a novice sailor, the Whitby 42 found a receptive clientele, and Whitby Boat Works sold 233 of them before ceasing production in 1987.

This boat is currently on the hard and ready for your personal inspection.  Would make a great cruiser to explore the coast, or a comfortable live-aboard option.
