Manufacturer Provided Description

The Grand Banks 42 Motoryacht took decades in the making. The original Ken Smith design has been amended and updated with the practical input of her owners. The experience gained since the laying of the first GB 42 keel in 1966 is reflected in each one commissioned. Her practical layout, sturdy fiberglass construction, deep water design, and long range capability all add up to a complete cruising boat. 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. Twin  diesel power delivers economy at hull speed and provide higher cruising speeds. The exterior of the hull and deckhouse on the GB 42 is smooth gelcoated fiberglass. Teak decking is laid over the fiberglass on the main deck and flybridge. The bulwarks surrounding the wide main deck are capped with a sturdy safety rail providing safe movement from bow to stern for those on board. The Grand Banks 42: In production since the 60s, her hull was redesigned in the early 90s giving the proven Grand Banks semi-displacement hull a longer waterline and an increased beam. Ideal for a couple with children or guests, she cruises economically at 9 knots, yet higher speeds are available when required. The Classic offers two staterooms, separated by the main saloon and galley. The Motoryacht provides increased living space with a spacious, full-width stateroom aft, and two additional staterooms forward.  The aft sundeck expands the outdoor living area and provides room for stowage.

The best layout option for this model including the full beam master aft cabin with separate heads and shower and vanity table, large galley up salon with L shaped sofa and TV cabinet, drinks cabinet and fully equipped galley. Forward are the two guest cabins and shared shower and heads.
