All About Your Hunter 42 Passage CC

Rig Specifications

These are the specifications provided by the designers, but even from the factory, these boats may not be identical. The reason for this is that the sail industry often contracts manufacturing to different sources in order to achieve economies of scale. What this means is – your Hunter 42 Passage may be more unique than you initially thought.

It’s important to note that boats are also frequently customized, so if you suspect that work has been done on yours, it’s best to take your own measurements. When ordering a sail, we will advise you if using the manufacturer’s specifications is appropriate, or if we require you to complete our own measurement forms.

I: 55.50 ft / 16.92 m
J: 16.00 ft / 4.88 m
P: 48.00 ft / 14.63 m
E: 15.50 ft / 4.72 m

Is a Hunter 42 Passage the Same as a Hunter 42 Passage CC?

Yes! The CC at the end of Hunter 42 Passage stands for center cockpit. These types of boats have a single-decked open hull with the helm in the center. This layout maximizes the boats handling and ensures a smooth ride offshore. It allows for extra accessibility to the bow, stern, and sides of the boat. Some sailors may argue that these are some of the best boats for offshore sailing.
