Chuck Paine-designed Cabo Rico 42

COFRESI’S CHILD a truly special one-owner Cabo Rico 42. Designed by Chuck Paine (C.W. Paine Yacht Design of Camden, Maine), the boat has time-honored lines and a feel that are virtually impossible to find in a sailboat as young as COFRESI’S CHILD. Regularly updated and meticulously maintained, she appears as she must have at her christening.

Chuck Paine designed the 42 with the live-aboard cruising couple in mind. The sail plan was designed for easy sail handling, and the rig is friendly for the Intracoastal Waterway bridges with its 61-foot height. The boat’s modest 5′-6″ draft is perfect for the ICW, Bahamas, Keys and Chesapeake Bay. The cutter rig with dual roller furling makes the sail size all the more manageable. The double spreader rig is well stayed with fore and aft lowers, and the mast is keel-stepped, using an elevated mast step so bottom of mast base is above any bilge water.

Below decks, COFRESI’S CHILD’s fit, finish and detail are fantastic – typical of most of the Cabo Ricos. Joinery is crafted with solid varnished teak, not teak plywood veneers. Doors and drawer faces are raised-panel solid teak with custom quality hardware, and lockers have teak doors or panels with louvers for ventilation. Overhead hatches are framed in solid teak and have hinged drop-down screens framed in varnished teak. Cabin trunk ports are opening and fabricated in stainless steel — even the screens are stainless.

She is in ready to go condition, and awaits her new owners in Warwick, Rhode Island. Listed by Wellington for $349,000.
