MAEVE has been professionally maintained and loved by her knowledgable owners who have updated her and maintained her in top condition.  She was repowered with a 55 HP Yanmar in 2010 and she has the Raymarine E 120 electronics. She is set up for short handed cruising with Harken electric primary winches.

Below decks MAEVE has a "Herreshoff" style interior with varnished mahogany trim.   This provides a light and cheerful interior with  beautiful joiner work Hinckley is renowned for. The Sou'west 42 was designed by McCurdy Rhodes and continues to be a popular,  highly regarded sailboat. MAEVE has been winter stored indoors for the past 16 years.
