42' Raider

The 42’ Raider® is a 5-person, sit-down model delivering a powerful performance statement. The Raider’s V-tails allow you to fly over the seas in adverse sea conditions. Its low profile offers less wind resistance and its sit-down cockpit offers a more comfortable ride without compromising speed. With a variety of exotic hatch configurations including a sun pad, a transparent hatch or a combination of both, your Apache® Raider is limited only by your imagination. You are ahead of the competition while still tied up at the dock!
