Tired of looking at junk? Come aboard a well-maintained yacht. This boat is a 1987 Grand Banks 42 Motor Yacht located in Seabrook Texas. Under cover on Galveston Bay in a state-of-the-art covered floating slip, the boat shows great pride of ownership. The owner has spent most weekends for many years polishing his prized possession and it shows. When the present owner bought the boat in late 2007, the previous owner reported that he had recently rebuilt the engines. He also replaced the original steel fuel tanks with durable aluminum and replaced all (3) air conditioning units. Since then, the boat has seen many other upgrades and improvements including new safety wiring to AYBC standards, a remodeled shower space off the master stateroom, new 13 foot wide teak swim platform, renovated teak decks with new planking as needed, new interior paint, a hull “peel” with new fiberglass and epoxy coatings, transmission rebuild, windlass rebuild, Force 10 galley stove rebuild, stuffing box repacking, new marine mattress, marine head rebuild, replace heat exchangers, holding tank manifold re-fabrication, fresh water system rebuild, engine and engine room paint, new fuel and oil lines, clean and circulate fuel in fuel tanks, new exhaust hoses, re-seated through-hull, recondition windows, refrigerator and freezer control rebuild, new exterior canvas, , etc. etc. She has been regularly hauled and surveyed with the last inspection in July 2017. This survey is available upon request to qualified buyers.
Grand Banks 42’s have proven to be comfortable, capable cruising vessels from stem to stern. With more than 1,500 built, the Grand Banks 42 in the “classic” and “motoryacht” styles has become the iconic trawler yacht. The motor yacht design style differs from the classic style in that it has much more space in the master state room, has a large aft deck which replaces the classic’s cockpit and has safer and easier access to the flying bridge. Overall the 42 motoryacht feels like a much larger boat than the classic and even compares favorably to the more expensive 46 classic in interior room. In our case, Allie Mae has the very desirable and rare 3 stateroom layout with galley up in the salon. Her reliable 135-hp Lehman Ford diesels propel this 42 MY at 8 to 9 knots. At cruising speed both engines together burn a total of about 5 or 6 gallons per hour. These engines are non-turbo marine diesels based on Ford truck engines with a simple and straight forward mechanical design. Some have reportedly achieved 100,000 hours of use in commercial applications.
“We are very happy with her,” says the current owner. “I can spend a day with family and friends out on Galveston Bay, anchor for lunch, then cruise some more for less than $50 bucks. Aside from changing the oil and filters plus the impellers now and then, routine maintenance is pretty simple to do. I enjoy working with the teak too”. The teak wood work is a high point on this beautiful trawler yacht. Nowadays, it would be cost prohibitive to install the high quality solid teak seen on this boat. They just don’t build them like this anymore. The interior looks more like a piece of fine furniture than a motor vessel. Fine cabinetry is in evidence everywhere you look and teak lasts and lasts. It is not prone to rot or mildew and cleans up easily with soap and water as long as the varnish is maintained. In 2008 the current owner had the decks completely refurbished. Since then she has been under cover in Kemah Texas in a covered floating slip and rarely sees a drop of rain or excessive sun. The owner has purchased a second Grand Banks, a 49 Classic located in Alaska. After nearly 10 years of love and care he is selling Allie Mae to focus on new adventures in the islands of the Pacific Northwest.
This is a three stateroom, galley-up vessel.
Starting from the bow, there is the forward guest cabin with a large V-berth and good storage. Next aft to port is another guest stateroom with a double berth below and more storage. The head is opposite to starboard and contains a large vanity with good countertop space, marine head and a separate shower area.
The salon, galley and lower helm station are located up three steps. This main cabin area has side doors to the deck on both port and starboard. The lower helm station is to starboard with full electronic display and controls. The galley is opposite the helm station. Just aft of the starboard deck access door is the L-shaped, convertible settee and table.
Continuing aft and down three steps, you enter the spacious owner's suite. It offers a queen berth, vanity/desk and split head with a nice vanity and marine head to port and separate shower stall to starboard. There is superb storage with many drawers and hanging lockers in addition to the desk area.
In this nicely equipped galley, the cook is afforded excellent light and ventilation and is not isolated from others onboard.
