Fans of the Legacy Yachts line of seaworthy Down East cruisers got a lift at last fall's shows when the builder, Freedom Yachts, debuted a hardtop version of their brand new, Mark Ellis-designed Legacy 42. Like all the Ellis designs that have come before it, the 42 mixes a beautiful sheerline with a cabin top forward, gently crowned to shed water, wide side decks that are easier to transit than a sidewalk, and high protective windows for outstanding views of beautiful cruising waters. These are elements found on many traditional Down East designs; where the Legacy 42 differs from its competitors is the shape below the waterline.
Actually, the shape starts at the stem, with a sharp V-angle entry supplemented by a spray rail. This rises up above the waterline from a point forward of amidships, turning away water climbing up as the curved foot slices into oncoming waves. The rail develops into wide chine flats aft that add excellent lateral stability in turns and increases side-to-side stability at rest. Viewed in the slings, you can see how the bottom on each side of the centerline begins to flatten to a deadrise of 25 degrees amidships, then rises with a modest amount of rocker aft, before finishing with an 18-degree deadrise at the transom. Along the way, the centerline departs from the way, the centerline departs from the planing surfaces developing aft, forming a keel that increases tracking and drops down low enough to protect the lower arc of the prop.
When this shape passes through the water, it cleaves oncoming or overtaken waves cleanly, but instead of continuing to climb on the other side, settles and parts the passing wave. The result: a wonderful motion across a wide range of wave conditions, with no untoward pitch, roll or yaw. Part of this motion is undoubtedly due to the amidships location of the engine, in this case, a single 660 hp Cummins QSM-11 diesel. We recorded 24-knot top speeds with this leading-edge, electronically controlled engine.
During our sea trial, I recorded very modest levels of noise in the saloon at the helm. First, the engine was mounted on flexible rubber isolation mounts, as are the custom oversized pot-style mufflers that help reduce backpressure and also pass exhaust underwater. The engine room is lined with three-inch-thick SoundDown vinyl/foam composite that has a 1/4-inch-thick damping sheet in the center. Additionally, the company adds 1-1/2-inch-thick acoustic foam on the engine room hullsides.
Electrical and plumbing systems are installed with care and protected against chafe and clearly identified in case you ever have to trace down a problem. Fuel delivery lines are USCG-approved Type A; fuel tank fittings are Aeroquip, with shutoff valves accessible in the cockpit fuel hatch. A single Racor water-separating fuel filter for the main engine was supplied on our test boat, along with a 12-V DC oil change pump for convenience.
Inside the engine room you also get a close-up view of the stout longitudinal and transverse stringers, made of high-density structural foam encased in biaxial knitted fiberglass, as well as two of the four structural bulkheads that give the Legacy 42 strength without excess weight. Even the cabin sole, a glorious teak-and-holly laminate, is laid on a fiberglass grid for rigid, lightweight support. The hull itself is a composite of long-lived ISO NPG gelcoat, outer laminates of alternating blister-resistant vinylester and polyester resins with an end-grain balsa core.
An 8 kW Northern Lights genset provides house power away from the dock, driving two 16,000 BTU air-conditioning systems that keep the saloon and lower deck accommodations at just the right temperature. The very complete electrical system includes four 850 amp gel-cel batteries, a 40 amp battery charger, a 120-V AC 50 amp shore power system and a meticulously wired AC/DC circuit breaker panel.
With its handcrafted interior-gloss-varnished teak-and-holly sole, satin-finished hardwood and hardwood- laminate furniture, and Herreshoff-style laminate bulkheads-the Legacy 42 will satisfy the traditionalist who appreciates fine workmanship and joinery. The owner of hull number one elected to dispense with standard bar stools and add another barrel chair for more casual guest seating. The addition of comfortable fabrics and sumptuous upholstery brings a modern theme to a saloon that is blessed with 360-degree views of your favorite cruising grounds and anchorages.
Excellent visibility for the helmsman is complemented by a sliding door just to starboard of the helm, making it easy to step out onto the wide side decks for docking or to go forward for anchoring. Tall, stout side rails wrap the weather decks from the anchor roller to the steps leading down into the aft cockpit, and there are safety rails on the hardtop, as well.

WINE & ROSES is hull #4 of the Legacy 42 Sedan / Express series built by Freedom Yachts of Middletown, Rhode Island. She was custom ordered and outfitted by her highly experienced current owner for long range, efficient cruising which he and his wife have enjoyed for five years. They have now retired in Florida and have brought the boat here to be sold immediately. WINE & ROSES is offered fully found including a hard bottom inflatable dinghy with outboard.
The Legacy 42 Sedan with a single 660 h.p. Cummins diesel offers outstanding efficiency and range as well as speeds up to 24 knots when needed. Her Mark Ellis designed planning hull rises to plane at approximately 12 knots and can cruise in the low teens at a running angle that affords good sight lines for the helmsman. Stabilized by her hard chines the hull is not given to the roll that many trawlers suffer from. Her keel gives the boat great tracking and the added benefit of prop protection.
Typical of her traditional Down East, New England heritage, the Legacy 42 mixes a beautiful sheerline with a gently crowned cabin top forward, wide side decks and high protective windows for outstanding visibility. Where the legacy 42 differs from its competitors is the shape below the waterline. The shape begins at the stem with a sharp V angle entry supplemented by integrated spray rails. The rails develop into wide chine flats aft that add excellent lateral stability. The bottom on each side of centerline flattens to a deadrise of 25 degrees amidships and finishes with an 18 degree deadrise at the transom.
The generous and easily accessible engine room is insulated from noise and vibration intrusion into the cabin using Soundown Insulation, a sound dampening shield, vibration absorbing machinery mounts and a heavy duty muffler. In addition, exhaust is vented underwater for a fume free quiet ride.
The salon is entered from the generous cockpit through a sliding door centerline. There are port and starboard twin settees covered in beige ultraleather on both sides of the salon. Beautiful satin finished cherry wood joinery is complimented by a varnished teak and holly sole throughout. There is abundant natural lighting and ventilation with large sliding windows with screens and overhead hatches. Forward of the settees to starboard is a double width Stidd Admiral Helm seat mounted on a cherry wood cabinet housing a small refrigerator. To port is a companion Stidd Admiral seat on a pedestal facing a built-in chart table. The helm station is to starboard with a sliding door to the side deck. The helmsman enjoys 360 degree visibility.
Down three steps to port is the extremely functional galley with ample storage lockers, drawers and Corian counters. There is a two- burner LPG stove with oven, double stainless steel sink, microwave and under counter Tundra AC/DC refrigerator/freezer. The galley is open overhead to the salon which provides light and airiness. Across from the galley to starboard is an L shape settee and cherry wood table with folding leaves. The table can also be moved and mounted in the salon. The settee can be converted to a double berth with privacy curtain. There are two storage lockers separated by built-in book shelves above the settee. There is a Toshiba LCD flat screen TV with DVD player mounted on the bulkhead forward of the settee.
Continuing forward to port is the head with stall shower which can be entered from the companionway or from the master stateroom forward. There is a Sealand Vacuflush fresh water head, vanity with mirror, stainless steel sink and Corian countertop, stall shower with curtain and Grohe fixtures.
The master stateroom is all the way forward and features a centerline queen berth with storage drawers beneath.. There are port and starboard cedar lined hanging lockers as well as four storage lockers on either side of the berth overhead.

The Legacy 42 is built using all vinylester resins, uni- and bi-directional fiberglass and Core-Cell coring. Thru hull fittings are bronze imbedded in solid glass. The hull is fabricated using resin infusion techniques that create a reliably uniform level of resin penetration for a strong hull that is as lightweight as possible. There are longitudinal and transverse stringers made of high density foam encased in biaxial knitted fiberglass as well as four structural bulkheads that give the Legacy 42 strength without excess weight. Even the teak & holly cabin sole is laid on a fiberglass grid for rigid lightweight support. The house and deck are finished in oyster white gelcoat. The hull is flag blue gelcoat with red bottom paint.
