The 42’ Altus is an Ed Monk Jr designed sport model built by Alexander Marine in their bluewater quality and tradition. “ROAM”  started her life as a boat show glamor piece. Coming highly optioned from build with luxury interior, decor, and upgraded engine packages. The Altus is overbuilt and oversized; top-notch hardware, fit & finish, machinery and living spaces round out the feel of a much larger yacht. Like most OA designs, the Altus rides on a modified V hull and upgraded Yanmar 440HP diesel engines that are capable of a 15 kt cruise with a top-end of around 20 kt. Easily single-handled, with clear helm visibility fore & aft and bow & stern thrusters. Trademarked twin propeller tunnels provide a shoal draft of 3.5’. Her large cockpit is ideal for entertaining, and with an equally efficient flybridge, she is perfect for the cruising family, hospitable host, or condo the water buyer. 

Currently on the hard in Portsmouth, RI, and can be seen by advanced appointment.
