Buddy Davis Yachts said it will debut a 42-foot center console next month at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The New Jersey builder said the boat will have a carbon-fiber hull and four 350-hp Yamaha four-stroke engines with the ability to exceed 60 mph.

The builder said the boat will have a Carolina flare, with a 24.5-degree deadrise aft and more than 60 degrees forward. It will have a 12-1/2-foot beam and a fuel capacity of 600 gallons.

The builder said the cabin will be full beam with a separate shower stall. There will be a full galley with a cooktop and refrigerator; a flat-screen TV; accommodations for four and a cherry wood interior; and a Seakeeper 5 stabilizer system.

On deck is an air-conditioned helm, a large dash for three 16-inch displays, a custom hardtop by Pipewelders and triple helm chairs, the builder said.
