The 42ft Torpedo

The 42-foot Torpedo is an exquisite combination of craftsmanship, power and performance. The Torpedo’s understated elegance and exclusivity inspire adoration and aspiration, making each arrival a memorable experience.

The Torpedo is not designed to merely hug the coastline however, but is designed, engineered and built to venture well beyond. The Torpedo’s hull allows for excellent stability and performance and while beautifully styled it comes with a superior performance to match.

Each J Craft embodies cutting edge design and technology which allow the individual to enjoy the sea confidently and without a crew. The Torpedo’s joystick enabled, rudderless Volvo Penta IPS pod system enables effortless control and provides perfect maneuverability at your fingertips. The Torpedo can be fitted with the IPS 400, 500, 600-R or 650-RS engines, depending on the individual’s wish for speed and performance.

Her driver can gracefully navigate coastal Mediterranean waters, easily cruising from breakfast in Monaco to a late lunch in Porto Cervo. The IPS propulsion system yields no vibration, noise or smell and joystick control allows for graceful, confident manoeuvring at speed or in port.

& Manoeuvrability

The J Craft Torpedo is one of the most stable boats on the market, aided in no small part by the innovative VOLVO IPS drives. Designed in conjunction with the Torpedo, the pod-mounted, forward-facing props make cornering easy, safe and comfortable. At low speed, when maneuvering in harbour, for example, the Torpedo is controlled by the IPS joystick. This fabulous technology allows the boat to move backward, forwards, sideways, and even turn in its own length, all with delicate, finger-tip control.

Needless to say that the J Craft is also fitted with a host of other features that make the Torpedo an incredibly safe and easy boat to live with. Compasses, VHF radio, chart plotters, and echo sounders are all available and ensure a wonderfully relaxing time on the water, safe in the knowledge that you are surrounded by the very latest marine technology.

Entertainment, convenience

& style

Life aboard your J Craft Torpedo is a blissful experience, made easier by the sumptuous accommodation and an array of technological features. The Torpedo can comfortably sleep four adults. Both air conditioning and a heater are available as options.

A neat, luxurious wet room allows you to freshen up in style. On the main deck, entertaining is made easy with the aid of a refrigerator, ice-maker, sink, and an induction hob or grill. Optional glassware and china are available, augmented by cutlery designed by His Majesty Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte of Sweden.

Entertainment is provided by an onboard entertainment system so that you can enjoy your own playlists and the internet is only ever a click away.

A rich variety of

Bimini options

The deck area can be shaded with the standard Bimini and there is an option to extend this to the aft, also covering the sun pad.

To cover the eventuality of bad weather, an additional spray hood, or indeed a full cabrio cover can be specified.

Performance is never hindered while using the Bimini as the Torpedo can be driven at full throttle while sporting any of the Bimini combinations.
