This Bluegame BG42 has got me after testing her for a couple of days in Croatian waters.
We did fast cruising to hop from one island to another and we also anchored in shallow waters of under 2 meters depth.
With the Volvo Penta IPS it's so easy to maneuver precisely and when you want to take some time to prepare the lines and fenders before mooring at the fuel station or port place, you press the DPS button and the boat stays at its location.
With the big walkways its easy to reach all sides of the boat quickly and without hurting your feet.
The open lounge in the middle can be nicely protected from the wind and water spray with high quality clear vue flexible glass covers. This space can be heated or cooled with the aircon outlets in the helmstation, which has a nicely raised position so you see all the boat from one location.
The cabin below is spacious and offers a fully equipped galley, ensuite bathroom with decent size shower and space to move around.
There is a comfortable double bed and the forward table in the seating triangle can be lowered to insert a cushion on top and act as a bed as well.
I am flabbergasted as you could say and got really convinced that this boat is one of the best if not the best in this 40 - 44 feet open range of boats such as the Pardo or Fjord and other brands alike. Mainly due to the raised Helm Station, the explorer retains its distinctive appearance and offers easy use with the rubber rub rails and quality finishes.
