The First 42s7, the result of experience from the famous First 45F5 and First 53F5, is also the outcome of even more thorough research in terms of quality, performance and comfort.  From the countermould of the structural hull, stratified to the hull, to the hull to deck join, the keywords are sturdiness and reliability.
