1984 Present Yachts Sundeck

Madisonville, Louisiana


The Present 42 Sundeck Trawler became a popular layout because she is easy to live on or entertain on, with an enormous bridge and aft deck. Forward & aft cabins have private heads and are located on opposite ends of the vessel, making it simple to have overnight guests or kids on board. Attractive for it's beautiful full teak interior, parquet flooring, full open salon and lower helm, with convenient side deck access doors. A breakfast bar separates the salon from the galley down to port, just across from the booth dinette. Covered aft deck creates the perfect space for entertaining. This model actually makes the term "storage" and understatement.
