Powered by economical 430-hp Volvo TAMD72s, the Post 42 attains a top speed of 29 knots at 2,650 rpm, while 2,250 rpm brings a cruise speed of just less than 25 knots and a fuel consumption of 31 gph. At this rate, the 520 gallons of fuel provide a range in the neighborhood of 450 nautical miles.
In addition to offering fuel efficiency, the small TAMD72s also help maximize accessibility to all systems within the engine room. Post also offers the 42 with Cummins 450Cs or Caterpillar 3208s.
