Legacy 42 | Performance & Engineering
Designed to Outperform in Every Category
The Legacy 42 IPS pairs the latest drive systems with a proven hull shape, and advanced marine composites, all packaged in an elegantly traditional motor yacht. The result is a yacht that gives her crew maximum comfort underway providing a stable platform.
The IPS Advantage
Even the most devoted boaters occasionally wish for more speed from their boats, maybe a little less noise and certainly better fuel economy. And in a crowded marina on a windy day, backing down into tight slip, who hasn’t wished for an edge in the maneuverability department? Now you can expect this and more with the car-like handling of the Legacy 42 IPS.
The complete, integrated Volvo Penta IPS (Inboard Performance System) includes twin Volvo diesel engines; steerable drive pods; twin counter rotating, forward facing propellers; through the drive water and exhausts; electronic steering system; shift and throttle. And a joystick that makes driving a joy.
These components can deliver up to 20% higher top speed that an inboard shaft driven boat, 50% perceived sound level, 30% reduced fuel consumption and almost unimaginable handling in close quarters.
Translation; more fun, more confidence at the helm, fewer trips to the fuel dock.
