42m explorer yacht Maverick, listed for sale last month with Bart Kimman and Dirk Van Straalen from Northrop & Johnson, is now jointly listed with Julian Chang from Fraser Yachts. The custom motoryacht, a GRP construction, was built by Sterling Yachts and launched in Ise, Japan in 1988. She is on the market with an asking price of $6,800,000.

“The boat looks immaculate”, commented Van Straalen on her condition. Maverick has benefitted from considerable work, including a hull extension of 4m to her aft. sections and other refit work completed in 2010 and 2013.

“The owner’s area is full-beam, it’s got a foyer and a very nice stateroom, with a full-width office and all the amenities you would expect. There are lots of areas on the boat where you can enjoy complete privacy and wonderful views. Even with 12 people aboard, you could sit on the upper aft. deck and not see another soul”, mentioned Van Straalen, who accentuated the point that a well-thought-out general arrangement on board explorer yachts is of the upmost importance.


42m M/Y Maverick

Maverick can accommodate eight guests over four staterooms, all of which are en-suite and offer entertainment systems. The interior is the work of Susan Puleo, who has completed a number of superyacht interiors, almost all of which are builds delivered between 1980 and 1990.

Data from The Superyacht Intelligence Agency shows that the average range for explorers between 35-50m is 5,472 at speeds of between 10–13 knots. Whilst the figure is taken from a wide LOA segment, it shows that Maverick’s 3,500nm range is below average. However, as Van Straalen asserted, “a 2,000 mile range is all you need when cruising in the regions of South-East Asia and the Philippines”, making it unlikely to pose restrictions in this particular cruising area.
