Quick Look: Salona 42

Cruising World 2008 New Boat Showcase

September 13, 2007

Salona has had a presence in North America for only two years, but the integrity of its designs and their quality of build have created a significant ripple of interest (the Salona 37 won Sailing World’s Boat of the Year award for Best Racer/Cruiser. The Salona 42 appears destined to sail proudly in the wake of its predecessors. As an ideal vehicle for exploring the myriad ports of call within a quick day’s sail of each other in its home Adriatic waters, it should easily fill similar cruising needs on either coast of this continent and hold its own in regattas, too.

Inside the J&J-designed envelope coolly calculated for handling and speed is a warmly finished interior that respects the needs and facts of being at sea.
