What better way to join the worldwide family of Grand Banks owners and cruisers, than with an iconic wood boat. Identical at first glance to a boat from the 1980’s or 90’s, with the same attributes of integrity and built quality, but with the advantages inherent to a wood boat, a quieter ride and more confident character in all sea conditions. Northerly is a tidy and well cared for example of a Classic 42 Grand Banks Tri-Cabin trawler, well outfitted and suited for cruising in our Pacific Northwest waters.
Boathouse kept in recent years, well cared for and maintained, extensively upgraded over time, her brightwork, teak decks, interiors and exteriors all in good condition. The salon and galley are bright, open and spacious, the staterooms and heads are warm, and comfortable.
Weather you're a young family or a cruising couple; out for weekend getaway’s or extended holidays up the coast, Northerly is a ready and capable yacht for all your summer adventures.

Since their introduction, these boats have made extensive cruises along the inland waters and in open seas around the world and we are sure that your Grand Banks will give you many hours of pleasurable cruising.
