Mystery 43

The all new Mystery 43, launching summer 2012, is another Stephen Jones classic designed for top notch performance with head turning style. The Mystery 43 will encompass a high stability factor and easily handled rig combination making her easy to sail as a couples cruiser, whilst also being a potential ĎARCí winner in the making.

Built to order with an element of bespoke finishing, the Mystery 43 interior is designed to give cruising comfort for two couples and occasionally six when required. A separate forward en-suite guest cabin provides that little bit of privacy without compromising the design performance with a wide stern double cabin arrangement.

In the saloon there is ample seating for six around a feature table. The two settee seats can be used as sea berths with an option for sacrificing some amidship storage for a pilot berth on the starboard side if required.
Her aft cabin arrangement provides one spacious double with good living storage. The urge to sacrifice performance and squeeze in more berths has been avoided with clear focus on the sailorís wishes.
