Paranon is a very roomy and comfortable center cockpit and feels like a much larger boat. Interior volume and enhanced accommodations are the idea behind the Passage 42 and Hunter makes full use of the center-cockpit theme by keeping the deck elevated from the mast all the way aft to provide up to 6'6" headroom below; with 14 feet of beam, the plan is opened up even further. Included are a double stateroom in the bow with its own head and shower, and another one - the master suite - in the stern quarters with a private head and shower. The main saloon is comprised of a large oval settee and a U-shaped galley on the starboard side that features refrigeration, hot and cold pressure water and a microwave oven. In lieu of ports is a large, "wraparound" windshield. In the passageway between the main and after cabins is the navigation station. The deck consists of a large center cockpit and a spacious upholstered "sun lounge" over the after cabin. Spanning the cockpit is a stainless steel structural arch that supports the traveler just over the helmsman's head. Sail controls and primary winches are within easy reach.
