Description
The Braginton 42 is the ultimate statement in good taste, classic beauty and state of the art construction technology. The Braginton's Nara rosewood laminated hull sides, polished stainless hardware and teak decks give it a nostalgic look that is reminiscent of vintage wood power boats of the 1950's, only the Braginton is built on a modern fiberglass hull. Her interior is of the futuristic Art Deco period, a time influenced by speed, chrome, black mirror finishes and unrestrained opulence. She is powered by twin silver anniversary edition Cat diesels with chrome valve and intake covers (375hp) housed in a standup engine room. The Braginton 42 is equipped with twin carbon fiber 5 blade speed props for maximum performance. She features a teak hydraulic swim platform for launching a dinghy and a hot tub spa for entertaining that is neatly hidden under the deck just forward of the transom. Even though she is a glass boat, she has been featured in the book, Classic Wooden Motor Yachts and in Motor Boating and Sailing magazine. She is listed in the Guinness book of world records as the largest rosewood object in the world and she is guaranteed to win prizes in any wooden boat show. Her graceful high performance hull lines were drawn by renowned Brazilian marine architect Luiz de Basto who also designed yachts for Riva. Howard Apollonio an accomplished west coast marine architect, did the structural engineering and tested the design at Boeing with their computers. At the time he was working with Boeing designing high speed assault boats for the US Navy. The hull has 22 degrees dead rise amidships and 17 degrees in the stern. The FRP hull is built of Knytex unidirectional cloth for incredible strength with an Airex foam core laminated with Syntex isothalic resin for osmosis protection. The 3/16' rose wood exterior skin on the hull is laminated with West System epoxy and fiberglass. She was originally custom built for Ed and Dee Dee Teren of Sun Valley by Transworld
