The new model of the Salpa Soleil 42 is once again a luxury RIB. With its 12.75 meters length and the 3.95 meters width it is impossible to miss. This mega RIB arrived a few days ago at BMC and is again a real Italian pearl. This RIB can easily exceed 50 knots of speed, a result made possible thanks to the new hull with double step and vertical straight bow designed by the English Adam Younger, a great expert in high yield hulls. The deck, on the other hand, covers a large area at the rear (to be converted into a sun deck) with table, multifunctional furniture with kitchen, solarium in the bow, fiberglass roll bars. It should be noted that the fibreglass structure is partly above the tubes to give the rubber-coated part more stability. Towards the bow there are also stainless steel railings. below deck there are two cabins with 4 beds and a separate toilet.
This mega rib is also easy to handle, extremely comfortable and surprisingly efficient! Salpa Soleil 42 is a very high quality mega-rib that has been able to combine with the best of luxury accommodation and excellent sailing quality without lacking in performance.

The hull of the Soleil 42, designed by specialist Adam Younger, is characterised by a vertical arch that increases the length of the waterline, two ventilated steps and three spray rails on each side.
The sharp bow and 24 degree deadrise in the centre of the hull ensure smooth navigation, while the variable height of the ventilated steps improves the performance of the boat during tight turns at high speed.
The Soleil 42 sails more economically and more easily at higher speeds. even in bad weather conditions, it can sail effortlessly and safely at high cruising speed, allowing you to cover long distances and reach your destination very quickly.
