POST IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR WELL BUILT SPORT-FISH ON THE MARKET AND THIS MODEL IS THE MOST POPULAR POST EVER BUILT.

Since its beginning in 1957, Post has developed a solid world-wide reputation as a premier builder of semi-custom yachts from 42 to 50 feet. The company was founded by Russell Post, who had previously founded the original Egg Harbor Yacht Company. He was well-suited for the task, for at the age of 15, he had built his first boat in which he later won an international sailing championship. Russell always approached boat building with the same energy and enthusiasm. For example, he sold his only car in order to purchase the cedar needed to build the very first Egg Harbor (hull no.1). Other operating funds were generated by building and selling small skiffs and sailboats. The natural inlets of the South Jersey coast, where currents scoured the channels and ocean waves crashed through unchecked, proved to be an ideal testing ground for those early models. Mr. Post made it a point to personally run each boat in order to assure its seaworthiness in all sea conditions. After the sale of Egg Harbor, Russell enjoyed a short-lived retirement. By 1957 he was back in the boat building business with a new nameplate and company, aptly named Post Marine. With a solid reputation for building quality boats, Russell took the next logical step and opened the current Post facility located on the Great Egg Harbor River in Mays Landing, New Jersey. ''Yachts of Quality, Not Quantity Since 1957'' was the new company's slogan...reflecting a philosophy which has remained management's position today.

With over 230 built during an 8-year production run, the 42 Sport Fisherman remains the best-selling Post ever. She was introduced in 1974 as a replacement for the all-wood Post 40, and shares her predecessor's handsome Jersey-style profile and quality construction. As a fishing platform, many tournament veterans rank the Post 42 among the best mid-range sportfishermen of era. Her large after sections and flared bow produce a relatively dry boat with good lift and speed as well as excellent low-speed stability. For an old boat resale values are surprisingly strong.
