The Jersey 42 comes only one way- your way...

JERSEY YACHTS ARE for people who can make decisions, boatmen who know exactly how they want their boat finished. Some Jersey owners fish, others cruise, but all have hands-on experience and a need to have the boat their way. Call it semi-custom if you like. In today's production-boat world, Jerseys are anachronisms, and beautiful ones at that.

It's been this way for years. Jersey has been around since 1954 when Fred McCarthy started this small company. In late 1988, Fred sold it to John and William Dalton, brothers who grew up in a boating family. Fred still stands by at the design table though, and the 42 Convertible Sportfisherman we tested recently in Key West bears many of his latest refinements, along with numerous elements proven over the years.

Such as construction. Jersey still subscribes to a traditional bluewater formula with a solid-fiberglass hull that's up to 1" on the bottom. The stringers are fiberglass-encapsulated fir. Plywood and Divinycell are employed to core top and cabin sides. This straightforward approach is ample, strong and practical. And it allows the people at Jersey to spend more time with their customers, and to continue to improve the boat.s.

Just last year, for example, Fred revamped the running surface of the 42 to heighten the ride and performance. Based on a deep hollow at the chine, he called the modification , "TurboLift," which accurately describes the result.

JERSEY GIRL- J&T 6-71TIBs pushed the Jersey 42 over 34 mph. Hand-rubbed teak interior reflects owner's choice of semi-custom treatments. Helm is compact yet yields plenty of room for electronics.

When water slides past the hull, the reverse radius at the waterline shoots the water away from the hull, much the way a turbine operates, all the while reducing friction and adding lift. Allowing the hull to break away hastens acceleration to put the boat on plane sooner, increases speed at the top end, and aids efficiency as well.

There's no real magic with this TurboLift design, mind you. Just a phrase to describe basic hydro- and aerodynamics used successfully by other builders as well as Jersey. But it helps the 42 to be fast.

Our test, conducted in the ocean and Key West Harbor, produced a top speed of nearly 35 mph with J&T DDC 6-71 TIBs. That's quite quick for type, size and power.

Of course, speed has its price and limits. ln this instance, the modest 10- degree deadrise typical of many canyon- runners means that if you push it too hard into a headsea it will pound. So, of course, the captain has to assess sea conditions before shoving the throttles against the firewall. But knowing the power is there is comforting when you have to outrun a storm, or make it to the weigh-in scale before it closes.

Other hull features to note are an abbreviated hollow keel for steady tracking and predictable steering thanks to Hynautic assist, and the broad 15'8" beam for stability and packing in fishing and cruising amenities.

This last feature is what really sets Jersey apart. According to John Dalton, Jersey's Executive Vice President of Sales/Marketing, no two interiors ever leave the factory looking alike. Why? There's no standard interior. We're talking semi-custom, remember?

DECISIONS, DECISIONS

Jersey 42 Sportfisher PerformanceInstead, each Jersey comes with a separate budget for interior decor, and prospective owners are encouraged to discuss their requirements with Laureen Currell of Architectural Interiors of Moorestown, New Jersey. This firm, which isn't too far from the Jersey plant in Lumberton, is the source of all Jersey interiors. Laureen works with the buyers to adapt the yacht's interior furnishings to its intended use.

An owner with young children and dogs, or a sportfisherman, for example, might opt for easy-care fabrics, while an owner who plans to entertain business clients might want a more ritzy ambiance with sculpted carpeting, acrylic tables, and lots of ultrasuede. If your choices exceed the budget, you make up the difference.

It is one of the luxuries of low-volume production, and it certainly enhances buyer satisfaction. "Customers who want what they want, tend to come to Jersey," explains John Dalton.

Even if the boat is going to a dealer first, as in the case of our test boat (provided by Voller's Yacht Sales, Inc. of Falmouth, Massachusett. s), the interior and optional equipment list is apt to be special. So is the finish and detailing.

Our test boat featured a popular arrangement with two staterooms, and the dinette and galley down. It's a practical layout that offers a wide-open salon for entertaining and relaxing, yet can comfortably sleep six to eight.

Teak joiner work is the mainstay of the interior, and the workmanship is shipwright quality. So's the finish. Jersey creates an attractive, mellow, hand-rubbed finish on the teakwood with a special process consisting of multiple coats of DuPont sealer, hand-sanded between coats, followed by several coats of hand-rubbed paste wax.

This durable and easy-to-maintain surface is notable because most Jerseys are sold with the optional ($1,900) three-piece safety-glass windshield that floods the interior with natural light. After a few seasons under harsh summer sun, some fading and drying out can occur. It's nice to know you can renew the teak without going through the expense and mess of varnishing.

Seems that just about every convertible builder has closed in the front windshield in recent years to take advantage of the space and add cabinetry for stowage. Jersey's approach is not only refreshing, but helps open up the boat's interior.

Not that stowage space is lacking. Far from it. In the forward master stateroom alone there are two cedar-lined lockers and 10 teak cabinets, plus room for the optional ($516) clothes dryer and standard Lunaire a/c unit beneath the tapered, walkaround queen berth with 6" -thick mattress. Natural light and ventilation pour through a tinted Bomar deck hatch.

The guest stateroom is designed with comfortable over-and-under berths that stretch out to 6'8" on 5" thick mattresses. What's unique about this arrangement is that the lower berth extends beyond the stateroom and out under the forward seat of the dinette. Similarly, part of the upper berth stretches forward into the cabinetry of the master stateroom. It sounds odd, but it works well.

COOK'S TOUR

This layout has one head. In addition to the outward-opening door in the companionway, there's a sliding door from the master

The galley is another example of how Jersey builds to an owner's needs. The appointments are impressive Whirlpool 12-cubic-foot refrigerator/freezer, Sea Ward three-burner electric cooktop and oven, Sharp Carousel II microwave, two GFI outlets, stainless sink with Moen fixtures and built-in ISE disposal unit, plenty of stowage space, teak parquet sole, and Formica countertops. But if you have your own ideas about how things should be arranged, Jersey will move cabinets and appliances. According to Dalton, one owner requested the upright refrigerator/freezer be replaced with under-the-counter units and the cupboards be lowered because his wife was petite and couldn't reach the upper cabinets easily.

Opposite the galley, the dinette amply feeds the crew and converts to a two-sleeper. Hiding under the dinette's aft seat is the central vac unit, Raritan water heater, and a second Lunaire that cools (and heats) the salon and guest stateroom. A huge stowage locker rests below the dinette sole, an accessible spot for spare props, tools, and other large items. More stowage is along the hull side.

Because each salon is individually designed, the choices are endless. Our test boat, for example, had a $3,250 upgrade in interior furnishings which provided ultra-plush fabrics and appointments.

Yet many of the features are standard, such as the teak interior, an entertainment center hiding behind teak tambour doors, teak hi-lo table, sliding side windows, mini-blinds and valances, two-sleeper sectional sofa with rod stowage below, and an leerEtte ice-maker.

Headroom in the salon is a generous 6'9". The solid-teak grabrail (which replaces a stainless bar in the Jerseys of old), as well as the solid-teak banister going down the steps to the galley, shows that Jersey understands real-world use.

MECHANICAL DESIGNS

Jersey 42 Dawn SpecificationsThe engine room is similarly practical. Access is through a large hatch in the carpet-covered plywood sole. The entire sole lifts out for majors. For daily fluid checks, the DDC 6-71TIBs and the 8kw Westerbeke genset are easy to reach, as are the Dahl fuel filters, pumps, Bennett trim-tab reservoir, raw-water strainers, bilge pumps, and the pair of engine-driven emergency bilge pumps.

Every piece of hardware in the bilge is coated with a durable fire-retardant enamel. Even the engines and generator are painted maroon, unusual because we're so used to seeing white engines in big boats like this. Adding to the neatness is foil-lined insulation and Jersey's own Divinycell-cored fiberglass diamond plate between the engines.

Similar thinking extends to the flying bridge and cockpit. Our test boat had an electronics package worth $17K and all the equipment was neatly installed at the helm and in overhead boxes integral with the standard fiberglass hardtop. Two adjustable Pompanette chairs, plus cushioned bench seating to port and forward of the helm are standard.

In keeping with the "real-world" theme on this boat, there's an abundance of stowage space for fishing rods, accessories, and safety gear throughout the flying bridge. Stainlesss-teel grabrails are handy and sturdy. Varnished teak trim adds a finishing touch and $ 1,000 to the option list.

If you don't see many Jerseys on the tournament trail, it's because there aren't many Jerseys, not because they lack the artillery. Our test boat had a massive fishwell (7'3"l x 17"w x 1'7"d) with lift-out dividers to keep the fish from flattening their noses and breaking off their tails, reinforced nonslip fiberglass sole that's 9'6"l x 12'w, and a comfortable 3'2" reach to the waterline. A molded console that houses tack.le lockers, freezer, and chill box is a $3,900 option. Optional cockpit controls can be installed in a molded console to starboard for $1,800. Other cockpit options included teak covering boards ($2,250), four flush-mounted rodholders ($500), and saltwater washdown pump ($650).

WHAT PRICE LUXURY?

Base price with Caterpillar 3208TAs is $335K. Our Detroitpowered test boat based at $349K, and options brought the total closer to $397K. This pricing makes the 42 with its custom features the least expensive among the high-end production yachts from the Garden State; boats such as the Post 44LE, Egg Harbor 42 Golden Egg, Ocean Yachts 44 Super Sport, and the 43 Viking Convertible.

Considering the performance, good offshore handling, and excellent workmanship, you'd figure they'd sell a lot of these.

But Jersey won't. The brothers Dalton will continue to deal with their customers on a one-to-one, first-name basis, finishing the boat the way the buyer wants much in the style of Fred McCarthy. The question then becomes, will you be one of the lucky ones? The decision is yours.
