General Details

XANADU is that boat that everyone wants: beautifully appointed, lightly used by the original owner, (not a little old lady), and meticulously cared for since her launching. She has been continually upgraded through the years and is only offered now because of the owner’s inability to use her as planned. She sleeps six in her cherry finished, dinette interior. XANADU is ready to cruise to the harbors of the world.


The Sou'wester 42 is a timeless model within the Hinckley lineup, one that has been admired for its beauty and sailing characteristics around the world. Many Sou'wester 42's have sailed the globe, but of the 77 built in total, XANADU is one of the most desirable since she has only been used seasonally in New England. In every way she is appointed, equipped, and has always been maintained, to the highest standards. Only one person or family will become the next owner of XANADU, but many will regret not buying her when they had the chance.
Though now indoor stored for the 2012-2013 winter, XANADU is ready to launch. Before being moved indoors she was: Varnished (2 coats of varnish on everything) Awlcared (waxed) hull Polished stainless steel Painted the bottom. The following is a list of 2011-12 Winter work performed on XANADU: Topsides - New Awlgrip Bottom stripped and faired, barrier coated and then painted. New hoses New pumps New halyards New Mastervolt Inverter New Seafrost refrigeration
Topsides: Off-White Awlgrip (Winter 2011) Bootstripe: Single Blue Cove: Gold leaf Bottom: Blue House & Deck: Polar White gelcoat with molded in nonskid Exterior trim: Varnished teak Construction: * Underbody:  Shoal keel with centerboard * Draft:  5' Board up / 9' 2" Board down The Sou'wester 42 hull is constructed using the SCRIMP® process to infuse vinylester resin in a single step under a vacuum into a cored laminate of Kevlar/E-glass. Dupont Kevlar fabric greatly increases the strength of the hull against damage caused by impacts and the aircraft grade balsa core provides the greatest degree of stiffness and thermal/acoustic insulation. The skin coat is chopped mat in low-shrink vinylester resin to provide a superior surface finish and a greater resistance to water osmosis. Core is removed and hull is reinforced with additional layers of fiberglass in stress areas. A fiberglass hull stringer system is bonded to the hull and integrated with the mast step and engine mounts to form a single unit that is strong and light. The deck and house are a Scrimp® molded in one piece which incorporates a hybrid knit fabric of Kevlar/E-glass to reduce weight and a core of aircraft grade balsa, which is deleted in major penetration and stress areas and replaced with solid layers of reinforcing glass. The hull is laid up with a 4" recessed flange to receive the deck which is bonded to this surface with reinforced polyester adhesive and thru-bolted on 8' centers with additional fastenings in the area of toe rail tracks, thus assuring a strong, permanent and watertight hull/deck joint. Bottom faired and stripped (Winter 2011) Keel: 9,000 lb. molded lead keel is secured to the hull with 1" stainless steel bolts. Centerboard: Molded solid Fiberglass Rudder: Skeg-hung rudder.
