2003 42' POST CONVERTIBLE
IS A HANDCRAFTED BEAUTIFULLY MANNERED YACHT
Brand new listing - pride of ownership shows throughout - maintenance records with log - desirable San Jose Del Cabo slip - set up for fishing - clean clean clean.
There isn’t a yacht builder today that doesn’t boast of quality. However, in and of itself, the word has little meaning anymore. To the knowledgeable boater, quality is something you have to experience. It’s the feeling of confidence you get when putting a well-mannered yacht through its paces in seven to eight foot seas. It’s a level of craftsmanship validated by flawless joinery. It’s the overall attention to detail that exemplifies the pride built into every Post Yacht since 1957.
Designed and built with the same quality components and exacting attention to detail as our flagship 56 Convertible, this 42 is just what you've been asking for - a smaller, quality yacht with more efficient diesel power.
Whether your pleasure is chasing billfish far offshore or cruising the Intercoastal, aboard the 42, you'll experience unmatched performance, combined with the ultimate in long-range cruising comfort.
Enter the 42’s salon, and you’ll discover an interior designed for maximum comfort, whether you’re into extended cruising or overnight trips to the offshore canyons.
Upon closer inspection, you’ll discover the many subtleties that set Post Yachts apart. From the superb cabinetry and overall attention to detail, to those less obvious things that serve to define a yacht.
For example, the interior of every Post Yacht is built piece by piece within the hull, as opposed to lowering pre-fabricated modular units into the hull as many high-volume builders do. On the surface, it’s nothing you can see. In reality, it is the one difference that virtually guarantees the kind of solid ride, long-term durability and excellent resale value that Post owners have come to expect.

The company was founded by Russell Post, who had previously co-founded the original Egg Harbor Yacht Company. He was well-suited for the task, for at the age of 15, he had built his first boat in which he later won an international sailing championship.
Russell always approached boat building with the same energy and enthusiasm. For example, he sold his only car in order to purchase the cedar needed to build the very first Egg Harbor (hull #1). Other operating funds were generated by building and selling small skiffs and sailboats.
The natural inlets of the South Jersey coast, where currents scoured the channels and ocean waves crashed through unchecked, proved to be an ideal testing ground for those early models. Mr. Post made it a point to personally run each boat in order to assure its seaworthiness in all sea conditions.
After the sale of Egg Harbor, Russell enjoyed a short-lived retirement. By 1957 he was back in the boat building business with a new nameplate and company, aptly named Post Marine. With a solid reputation for building quality boats, Russell took the next logical step and opened the current Post facility located on the Great Egg Harbor River in Mays Landing, New Jersey. "Yachts of Quality, Not Quantity Since 1957" was the new company's slogan . . . reflecting a philosophy which has remained management's position today.
With regard to management, Post remains somewhat unique within an industry that often appears to thrive on constant change. In 1975, partners Charlie Walters and Bill Schell purchased the company from Mr. Post. To Charlie and Bill, carrying on the Post tradition amounted to staying the course. In 1957, and at the age of seventeen, Charlie had become Russell Post's second employee.
Over the years, he had seen the pattern for success develop, and had the foresight to take the company to an even higher level with the help of Bill and long-time Vice President Ken Jensen. The conservative management style, that has served the company well through the industry's ups and downs, was a critical part of its success. Unlike many of its counterparts, Post has never tried to build something for everyone. The company has chosen to concentrate its efforts on meeting the high standards of a select number of seasoned boaters. As a result, the crew at Post Marine has been able to maintain a level of quality and value through 54 years of production.
On December 20, 2011 Post Marine Group LLC purchased the assets of Post Marine Co., Inc. Company operations have transitioned from Mays Landing, New Jersey to Chestertown, Maryland.
Post Yachts will continue to be run with the same honesty, passion, and spirit that characterized the stewardships of Russell Post, Charlie Walters, Bill Schell, Ken Jensen and their entire Post team.
