Nanni N4.50 (50hp) diesel engine with 2:1 mechanical gearbox. 100amp alternator. Engine is flexibly mounted with built-in drip tray. The engine is located over the keel, perfect for weight distribution.

A beautiful, fast, comfortable seaworthy yacht. Constantly developed over the years, the Rustler 42 continues to be the benchmark cruising yacht of her size.

The Rustler 42 is a classic looking yacht which combines style that is traditional yet modern. Her cruising layout results in a live aboard yacht that has stability and elegance with the same unique sea-kindly characteristics as the Rustler 36. The Rustler 42 adds a performance element to other essential blue water attributes such as directional stability, stiffness and good load carrying ability. Below the waterline, she looks conservative with a deep canoe body, long fin keel and a big skeg hung rudder.


Below the decks, this yacht has a spacious open plan saloon. The large, beautifully finished saloon table can comfortably seat eight. There is a lot of storage within lockers, behind seating areas, bookcases, a bottle storage and lee cloths fitted as standard. A forward facing chart table easily takes a folded admiralty chart plus the usual aids to navigation and a customised ships control panel.

The spacious aft cabin has standing headroom, a full-width double berth and plenty of storage within lockers and a vanity unit with seat. The aft head incorporates a shower unit and a ‘wet lilies’ locker. At the forepeak the grand master cabin has a 6 ft 6 in double v berth. With plenty of storage and an ensuite the cabin ensures comfort.
