Vessel Walkthrough

Originally built in 1992-1993, this Custom 42 Sportfisher was built by Shaw Boats in Aberdeen Washington. The boat is owned by the original owner who has commissioned and had several custom boats built throughout his lifetime. Built with range, efficiency, and seaworthiness in mind it is equipped with a single Lugger Alaskan 6140AL main producing 630 hp at 2100 RPM.

Efficient cruise speeds range from 9 to 13 knots and with the efficiency and reliability of the Lugger main, this sportfisher is an extremely capable vessel for traveling and cruising long distance with excellent fishability along the way.

The cockpit is equipped with a custom bait system, teak decks and covering boards. There is a large amount of storage throughout the boat which comes in handy during long passages or extended fishing trips. The wheelhouse is accessed via a few companionway steps which also serve as engine room access when raised up. Upon entering the wheelhouse the helm is to starboard, a wet bar to starboard with sink and freezer opposite to port.

The helm has a full suite of Furuno and Simrad electronics, all controls within reach, and visibility is good at the helm. Maneuverabilty is aided with a variable speed Wesmar bow thruster.

Down a series of steps from the wheelhouse is the galley immediately to the port side, which is very comfortable, spacious and has all the amenities for extensive meal prep underway or on the anchor. To starboard is the power distribution panel on the aft bulkhead and forward of that is a large and very comfortable dinette. 

Large bunks are forward in the bow providing a spacious and comfortable berth when its time to call it a day. Below the bunks is an abundance of storage which provides a smart and spacious area to keep organized.

Long life for any marine use - (Northern Lights Spec)

Whatever your marine use; workboat, fishboat or yacht, an investment in Lugger diesel technology pays high dividends of performance, reliability, long life and lower operating costs.

We begin with a specially prepared Komatsu engine block built for large construction equipment with heavy-duty features you won't find in ordinary truck diesels. Features that

pay off in big savings over the engine's lifetime. On this strong foundation, we build a marine diesel that has proven itself in rugged commercial service and world cruising yachts.

The 6140AL produces 630 horsepower at only 2100
rpm and a maximum torque of 1730 foot pounds. It takes thorough engineering and the best components to attain this level of performance without sacrificing life cycle, onboard comfort or operational economy.

Take special note of the: Individual 4 valve cylinder heads. High pressure fuel injection system. Jacket-water cooling system that thermostatically controls the temperature of oil, intake air, turbocharger, exhaust manifold and internal components yet is clean and simple with no belts and few hoses. Component materials; bronze, stainless steel, cast iron, cupro-nickel and marine aluminum castings. Each chosen, not for its price, but on its ability to do the job and survive under continuous duty.
