Owner Comments
"Hey Jude" is a monohull ketch designed for the "open" seas which sails exceptionally well as a center cockpit full keel boat and her low lines are beautiful. She has been owned and sailed to the Bahamas, Caribbean, South America and all around Florida with just my Wife and myself  over the last 16 years. She can be handled by two or handle a crowd. This boat was built in Ft. Myers, Florida. She has a lot of beautiful custom interior upgrades. The wind generator and solar panels have the capacity to keep the batteries completely charged by themselves. All hoses, heat exchangers, belts, filters, pumps and necessary valves were replaced/rebuilt in 2010. Tons of spares. I don't think you can find a better layout for cruising and/or living aboard.
Brokers Comments
"Hey Jude" has been maintained to a standard not often accomplished. The boat is spotlessly kept inside and out. (Think toothbrush and Q-tip clean!) and her custom interior teak work and exterior brightwork are truly a sight to see. There is absolutely nothing about this boat that says 1980! If cruising the Bahamas or Caribbean is in your future plans you owe it to yourself to see this exceptional Whitby 42! At her asking price she is absolutely the nicest 42 on the market today. Please allow us the opportunity to introduce you to "Hey Jude" today.
