With more than 1,500 built, the Grand Banks 42 was one of the most successful cruising designs ever produced. The 42’s seaworthiness and spacious accommodations made it popular with cruisers and former sailors. She is distinctive for her tall bow, deep forefoot, smoothly broken sheer, and upright pilothouse topped by a flying bridge.
A guest cabin V-berth forward, a pilothouse saloon with a steering station, a spacious galley to port with electric stove, refrigerator, and plenty of counter space, and an L-shaped lounge/dinette to starboard. A master cabin aft has its own adjacent en suite head with shower and a bathtub. Stowage—a prime consideration for a cruising boat—is plentiful. Other notable features include protective bulwarks, wide side windows, and a wheelhouse side door.
Powered by a pair of diesel 130-horsepower engines give an economical 8-knot cruising speed.
Boaters looking for classic lines and an economical long-range cruiser may find just what they’re after in the Grand Banks 42 Classic.
