ONE OWNER, FRESHWATER ONLY GRAND BANKS 42 CLASSIC!
The Grand Banks 42 Classic has a practical layout, sturdy fiberglass construction, deep water design, and long range capability. The Grand Banks semi displacement hull design, with a fine entry forward, hard chines aft, and a full keel has been proven on waters around the world.
The 375 HP twin 3208 CAT diesels deliver economy at hull speed and provide 18 knots of cruising speed. The flybridge is easily accessible from the main deck and offers excellent 360-degree visibility when underway or maneuvering dockside. A pair of back-to-back double seats provides generous seating for eight with storage beneath the seats. The bridge console has full instrumentation with handy storage for large items below and a handcrafted teak steering wheel. The electric windlass is mounted on a dual roller anchor platform and is protected by a stainless rail. The location of the shore power inlets, at the bow and stern, makes power connections possible without boat position being a problem. The foredeck storage locker is great for lines and the large lazarette aft provides convenient storage for a variety of cruising gear.
The focal point of the Grand Banks 42 Classic is the deckhouse. The spacious main saloon measures 14-feet, 8-inches by 10-feet, 4-inches and combines the activities hub, entertainment center, and main living area. Forward is the fully equipped galley to port and the helm station to starboard. The forward companion-way leads to a guest stateroom with a V-berth and a head with shower.
The galley offers a stainless steel sink, cutting boards, gas range & oven, microwave, refrigerator, freezer and abundant storage. Opposite the galley, the helm has a full width overhead electronics locker and a flip up storage compartment for manuals and navigational tools. Just aft of the starboard door is a dry-bar cabinet. Looking aft in the saloon, you can see the long L-shaped settee with an extendable teak table.
The aft stateroom has beautiful teak joinery, parquet soles, built-in furniture and cabinets and hand-crafted moldings. This stateroom features a double berth to starboard and a single berth to port with lots of storage in hanging lockers, bureaus, and below-berth drawers. The ensuite head has a separate stall shower and good storage.
The engine room in the 42 Classic has working space outboard of and between both engines. The standard 8-KW generator comes with a sound shield for quiet operation. The exterior of the hull and deckhouse has smooth gelcoated fiberglass. Teak decking is laid over the fiberglass on the main deck and flybridge. The bulwarks surrounding the main deck are capped with a sturdy teak safety rail providing safe movement from bow to stern for those on board.
The Grand Banks 42 semi-displacement hull cruises at 18 knots. The Classic layout offers two staterooms, separated by the main salon and galley. The aft sundeck expands the outdoor living area and provides room for stowage.
