General Description

The Post 43 is an updated version of the classic Post 42 Sport Fisherman (1975 - 1983) with revised interior and a slightly larger cockpit. Introduced in 1984, she rides on a low-deadrise semi-v hull with a deeper forefoot than the 42 for improved performance and a measurably improved ride. Below, her two-stateroom layout is a blend of traditional teak woodwork, quality furnishings, and designer fabrics. The forward stateroom is dominated by a centerline pedestal berth, while the guest stateroom is arranged with stacked single berths. The galley is down, across from the guest cabin, and the salon includes an L-shaped settee and a full teak entertainment center forward. Topside, a molded tackle center which also serves as a base for the bridge ladder, in-deck fish boxes, teak covering boards, and a transom door with gate.
