September / October 2017


    Well-known for boats built for fishermen by a fisherman, Caison continues to be one of the last in the boat-building world to offer a complete design and build experience. Although Caison’s vessels are based upon the classically flared Carolina cold-molded hulls, every Caison yacht is unique based on the choice of size, power, electronics and amenities built to the customer’s request. The latest Caison yacht is a 38-foot center console with triple 300 Yamahas and a list of amenities usually reserved for the larger sportfisherman styles. Offering the fishability of a center console, the feel of a large sportfisherman and the bells and whistles of a much larger boat, the Caison 38 offers a top speed of 50 mph and a cruise of 37 mph with fuel economy in the 1 gallon per mile range.
    The helm deck has room for three pedestal helm chairs and nicely fits two 22-inch displays plus additional communication gear and a varnished teak helm pod is also available. Tower options include a marlin tower or three-step gap tower, both with hardtop featuring electric teaser reels behind a sliding door. Fishing amenities include a large cockpit with a mezzanine deck and insulated boxes below and a transom livewell/fish box plus three additional in-deck fish boxes. Some of the other available cockpit features include fresh/saltwater washdown, Eskimo ice maker, bait freezer, four removable tuna tubes, teak deck, cover boards and coaming pads and dockside freshwater inlet. Below deck the Caison 38 offers a queen berth, LED lighting, head with sink and shower, air conditioning, a galley with refrigerator and microwave, Amtico flooring, satin finished teak veneers and rod storage to port and starboard. A 6 kW diesel generator is standard, though other options available include a bow thruster, faux teak toe rail, bow pulpit, underwater lighting, satellite TV, refrigerated cup holders and an enclosure for the helm deck.

    Henriques Yachts has expanded the 42 Express yachts line with the addition of the 42 EX HT B. Identical in design to its popular 42 Express Hardtop, this new model adds a flybridge for visibility as well as a second helm station and extra seating for guests. As a semi-production yacht builder, each Henriques yacht is designed and constructed to meet the demands, budget and schedule of the client. The hull is hand-laid fiberglass while cockpit, deck and cabin are one hand-laid fiberglass component creating a strong and solid vessel. The 42 EX HT B has been designed for a year-round fishing in all weather conditions and boasts the signature huge cockpit found on all Henriques yachts. Cockpit features and options available include molded-in transom door, livewell, two large refrigerated fish boxes with macerators, cockpit refrigerator/freezer, boarding steps, tackle prep centers, mezzanine seating and coaming bolsters to name just a few. The helm deck has a large console for a full electronics suite and three pedestal helm chairs plus additional seating aft with storage below and offers quick access to the cockpit when extra hands are needed.
    Through a sliding door from the helm deck, gain access to an interior layout below deck that has been designed to maximize the total space. The galley has a stainless steel drawer-style refrigerator freezer, stove top, microwave, quartz countertops, teak interior and lots of cabinet storage space. The salon offers additional L-shaped seating, an L-shaped dinette, an entertainment center with flat-screen TV, and reverse-cycle air conditioning. Accommodations include a master stateroom with a large full head and shower. Contact: Henriques Yachts at 732-269-1180 or visit www.henriquesyachts.com.
