“Bayou A Bud” is a low hour, original owner, Freshwater 42 Grand Banks Europa; offering and a unique opportunity for a new buyer. She has been maintained with no expense spared. The Grand Banks Europa 42 is an evolution of design through many years with a semi-displacement hull and a fine entry forward; hard chines and a full keel for stability. The quality of the craftsmanship is unequalled even by today’s standards of boat building, as is evident with every one of her features.
The Teak decks are hard-laid over fiberglass decks; there are Teak cap rails with Teak bond rails that show the eloquence of a yacht.
The flush Deck layout is highly desirable, having the Lower Helm opened up to the Galley; then aft is the Salon. The Salon on the same level is the large Aft Deck for entertaining.
