Rustler 42

Pre-purchase and sea trials were carried out on this beautiful Rustler 42 in Falmouth. It has been to long returning to Falmouth to visit. The Rustler was surveyed at Rustlers factory and yard. It was really nice to speak to the staff and see what was going on with new builds. The Rustler is built for crossing oceans in safety and comfort and does it very well. On the sea trial we had around 10 knots of breeze just off Falmouth. I was surprised how quick it was and footed nicely to windward, and just look at that rudder, not two or three tangs but four, normally only seen on larger yachts. The feel of the yacht under motor and sail is superb. In a big sea I would think this is where it comes alive with a cutter headsail set and mainsail. Access to the engine was great, it’s located in the saloon and was so quiet underway. Cockpit was nice and deep. Overal a sensible yacht and a joy to survey and sail. Thank you to all involved.
