New Mag Bay 42 Poised for Miami Boat Show Debut

New Mag Bay 42 Poised for Miami Boat Show Debut

The eagerly anticipated new Mag Bay 42 is receiving her finishing touches, and will debut at the Miami International Boat Show, February 13th – 17th.  The Mag Bay 42 is designed and built as a high end fishing and cruising yacht. The first hull – on debut at the show – will be fully outfitted for serious fishing, with an open deck, hardtop and tower. Hull number two will be a sport coupe design, with an enclosed hardtop design, bow pulpit and swim step - great for the cruising/fishing lifestyle.

The Michael Peters-designed Mag Bay 42 is designed with both form and function in mind. While there are a few configurations available, the 42 really is designed for fishing. With a big functional cockpit, oversized fish boxes, a large livewell, and oversized tackle and gaff storage areas, the boat is perfectly poised to deliver a big catch. The helm features triple Release Marine helm chairs – and is the focus point of the boat.  The helm area hinges forward, making electrical component access a breeze. The dash features generous spacing, and allows for two 24 inch screens, or up to three 17 inch screens. It’s ready to be equipped with the electronics of your choice!

Down below, you’ll find a very generous sized L-settee, which can sleep up to two adults (in addition to the private stateroom forward which features a center line queen berth). A TV is on the forward bulkhead of the main cabin, while a compact galley is to starboard, as well as the head. One unique aspect of the boat’s design – the head is located right at the entry way to the lower decks, making it easy to access from the helm deck. Most of the lower deck features a headroom of 6’ 8”. Thoughtful touches like large hullside windows and skylights make for a light and bright interior.

All in all, the Mag Bay 42 looks to be a real winner in the 40-45 foot sportfishing market – we can’t wait to have the first one on the West Coast (coming this spring!).
