Beyond compromise

Love at first sight

The Keizer 42 has an impressive look. A look that makes you fall in love from the very first sight. Our design team at Vripack Naval Architects did a great job translating our ideas into a new, beautiful runabout. Although she has a high-volume interior, we did not compromise on the looks. She is bound to turn heads wherever she goes!

Not just a
pretty face

It´s not only beauty, form follows function. The Keizer 42 is a sports boat with great functionality. We dare to say that she is best in class. The interior space for a runabout is generally limited but not in the Keizer 42.

Keizer 42 Interior

The largest
open cockpit

The Keizer 42 was designed with a large, open living space and the yacht has the largest open cockpit of its market segment. The floor deck was created ergonomically and completely level. From the practical outdoor kitchen equipped with an electrical stove to the fully outfitted cockpit with its navigation equipment and instruments.

Welness on the water

If you go below deck, you will have the feeling of entering a hotel suite. The master bedroom is fitted with two stylish sofas and a king-size bed. The fully equipped “head” does not know what “concessions” are. As is the case in the master bedroom, the standing height here is also 1.90 m.

Freedom with

The Keizer 42 incorporates a full interior allowing you to stay on board for days or even weeks, together with family and friends. The interior, with a headroom of 1.90 m, offers room for four beds and a complete bathroom with toilet and separate shower compartment. The Keizer 42 will provide you and your guests with a great and comfortable stay on board — in all circumstances.

Exceptional handling &
fuel consumption

Because of the hull design the Keizer 42 offers a very stable and dry ride. Getting on to the plane is extremely smooth with no use of trim tabs needed and cornering at high speeds is a joy to experience. Increasing the speed from 8 knots to 13/14 knots is without the traditional digging in at the stern. Because of this all round visibility is excellent at all speeds.

The Keizer 42 offers you a soft riding hull with a performance to match. Easily doing anything between 16 and 25 knots in choppy sea conditions still offering comfort onboard or cruising flat out at 40 knots if desired.

Compared to similar sized boats with similar engines consumption can be up to 50 % less. Between 16 and 25 knots the range is always a very impressive 400 miles plus.…

Where motion is

The Keizer 42 is inspired by the traditional runabout, but then with a modern driveline in the vessel's stern. You have the choice of three Volvo Penta diesel options: the D4 (2x 300 HP), the D6 (2x 370 HP) or the D6 (2x 400 HP). Depending on the choice of engine, the Keizer 42 can achieve a top speed of 40 knots (75 km/h).

Whatever engine you prefer, they all have one thing in common: they are manufactured by the undisputed leader in marine innovation: Volvo Penta. The engines are robust, immensely strong for minimal vibrations and have a long service life. And last but not least, they comply with the most stringent environmental demands.
