The work center of any Henriques is the cockpit. You rarely find Henriques owners that only cruise, though, make no mistake, these boats provide comfort and simple maintenance if that is what you choose for your family. The 42 comes with a 9-kW generator as standard equipment. It also boasts such standard fare as a tuna door, coaming pads, tackle center, fresh- and saltwater washdowns, a bait-prep station with a sink, and a plate glassed in under the deck so you can mount a fighting chair. Optional items such as a freezer/refrigerator, Bose speakers (cockpit and bridge) and a Glendenning Cablemaster for your shore-power cord can also be installed. Of course, since this is a semicustom boat, a simple conversation with the engineers makes just about anything possible.
