The 420 is a direct descendent of the 400 Sedan Bridge that after six years in the line is being replaced. But her styling is also derived from the 560 Sedan Bridge. The result is a 42-footer that seems a lot bigger.
For starters there's a large, spacious bridge accessed from the cockpit via a wide, molded-in staircase whose two bottom steps are about 3'6" wide. A sturdy rail to starboard and a grabrail to port flank these and the six other steps leading topsides. And with the table and six-person, C-shape seating area aft of the centerline helm—there are stowage areas below the cushions—this is definitely the place to be while underway. You can even get an optional sunpad filler cushion for the table.
The centerline helm has the pod-type control panel that has proven to be a winner in the Sea Ray line. The flush-mounted electronics, including my test boat's Sea Ray Navigator PC chartplotter system, are raised to maximize viewing.
Perhaps the most striking and successful adaptation on the 420 Sedan Bridge is in the use of interior space. There are features on this 42-footer that you'd expect to see only on larger models. Take the opposing UltraLeather couches in the saloon. The port one converts to a double berth, while the starboard one offers a stowage compartment below, and there's a raised dining area amidships and to port that easily seats four adults. Both areas offer excellent views, whether through the three large windows forward, those to either side, or out the aft sliding glass door.
Another spatial feature worth noting is the galley, down and to starboard. While headroom in the saloon measures more than 6'5", down the three steps to the galley it's a whopping 9'6".
As with her progenitors, the 420 has a well-equipped galley that features ample stowage in cabinets and drawers, Corian countertops, a Panasonic microwave/convection oven, a two-burner electric stovetop, a three-quarter size Norcold refrigerator and freezer, and the can't-do-without Black & Decker coffee maker in its own cabinet. There is additional stowage beneath a hatch in the galley sole and in a pantry with seven shelves that's just forward in the hallway to starboard. Plenty of space for ship's stores for extended cruising.
A cedar-lined locker is also provided, and the day head is just forward of here. The forepeak master has an en suite head, and its centerline queen island berth has stowage beneath the mattress as well as in two drawers in its base, a pair of cedar-lined lockers, and ample, bulkhead-mounted cabinets.
The 420 Sedan Bridge even inherited spirited performance, courtesy of the MerCruiser-Cummins synergy. Equipped with a pair of optional 480C-E Cummins diesels, the boat was recently run at 30.1-knot (34.7-mph) top speed, and at 2000 rpm, 20.7-knot (23.8-mph) cruising speed.
