Keizer 42 represents a unique combination of these three elements. There is no other vessel in this segment that features a better blend of these characteristics.
A new product, which comes from the Netherlands, was presented for the first time at this year’s Boat Show in Dusseldorf and attracted the visitors’ attention because it is an original and modern solution for the upcoming boating season. It was a really magnificent world premiere, with a Keizer 42, over 13 meters long, gleaming on the stand.
This open boat with specific comfort is a very practical speedboat that has a great potential and promises high efficiency and diverse navigation. Primarily due to beautiful design and looks, with a robust frame of the external glass surfaces, the vessel leaves an impression of a dynamic boat, suitable for both coastal and inland waters. Keizer 42 is also very seaworthy. Inspired by traditional forms with support of a small bow cabin, but also featuring a large space below the deck that can accommodate four adults quite comfortably.
It contains modern internal drives, but you can choose between a gasoline engine Volvo Penta of 2×355 V8 hp and diesel engines, namely Volvo Penta D4 of 2 x 300 hp or a more powerful option Volvo Penta D6 of 2×400 hp with which the speedboat achieves a maximum speed of 40 knots. All these engines are proven for power and strength, with minimum vibration, while being very durable at the same time. Thanks to an impressive range of 400 nautical miles, Keizer 42 makes it possible to plan journeys that can last longer than a few dozen hours without docking. The vessel’s dimensions indicate that it offers an ideal space and conditions for a comfortable cruise of a four-member crew, or a possibility for socializing of a larger group of people – up to 12 persons.
Wherever you wish to go, Keizer will do everything to make your dreams come true, as the beam of 3.99 m enables good layout of the cockpit. There is an Lshaped booth with a folding table for dining, a large sunpad with thick upholstered cushions and adjustable backrests, as well as an outdoor galley block with an induction stove for heating food, and a large sink with a worktop.
When you enter the forward cabin, it feels like being in a hotel suite. A large head compartment with a separate shower fully meets the needs of a family of four. Another cabin with twin beds is located below the middle part of the deck. The whole space below the deck is fitted with a large number of wooden wardrobes and useful compartments around the bed and around the sofas.
Distinctive round portholes on the sides of the hull are smaller in size, but their purpose is to maintain contact with the environment and to be able to follow the conditions on the water at all times. On the other hand, the skylights are larger, thus making the interior bathe in natural sunlight on a bright day. Above the bow double bed, there is a round security skylight that also serves as an emergency exit.
The front deck is fully covered with an anti-slip surface and paneled in teak, but what is certainly most striking on this boat are the robust frames of a large windshield and long windshield wipers, which perfectly protect the cockpit from splashing and strong wind.
Skipper’s position has wide seats for two persons, while the instruments are arranged in two levels and can be divided into two different groups. The first group of instruments have gauge indicator needles in combination with digital display of parameters to register the electronically operating mode of the system, while another group consists of a big display that enables monitoring of
navigation and course. This well-equipped helmsman’s post gives full support to the skipper to easily and safely steer this robust vessel. Full protection from wind and waves is also provided for the skipper’s companion in navigation, whose place is located opposite the skipper, from where they can fully enjoy navigation or create a position for lying and sunbathing simply by moving the backrest to a forward position. All the seats, both outdoors and indoors, are white, branded,
upholstered in quality materials, and comfortable. Protection from the sun and rain is secured by a large convertible awning that can easily be extended across the entire middle section of the cockpit.
The Keizer Yachts company offers to their demanding clientele a wide range of options for customized decorating of the space. Future owners can put into practice all their ideas, in cooperation with the design team, which is there to help the buyers to define their wishes related to decoration, advanced navigation systems, audio systems, or any other significant detail. With the price of €265.500, – Keizer 42 has a very very good price/quality/room-ratio. Better than
any other competitor in the market.
Keizer 42 delighted the Boat Show visitors and lived up to all the promises it made when presented to the public.
