Manufacturer Provided Description
The Grand Banks 42 Classic has been decades in the making with over 1500 units made! The original Ken Smith design has been amended and updated over the years 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 today. Her practical layout, sturdy fibreglass 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 well proven on waters around the world. Twin diesel power will deliver economy at hull speed and provide higher cruising speeds when larger than the standard engines are chosen. The flybridge is easily accessible from the main deck and offers excellent 360-degree visibility when underway or manoeuvring. A pair of back-to-back double seats provide generous seating for eight with storage beneath the seats. The bridge console has full instrumentation with handy storage for large items below. The steering wheel is handcrafted teak. The standard electric windlass, mounted on a dual roller anchor platform protected by a stainless rail, helps make the anchoring process as simple as possible. 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 easily accessed 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 centre, and main living area.
Forward is the fully equipped galley to port and the complete helm station to starboard. The companion-way forward leads to the guest stateroom with V-berths and a roomy head with its own shower. The galley is complete with a range - oven, refrigerator, stainless steel sink, cutting boards, and excellent storage in several cabinets.
The helm area features a full width overhead electronics locker and a flip up storage compartment for manuals and navigational tools. Just aft of the starboard door is the dry-bar cabinet. Looking aft in the saloon, you can see the long L-shaped settee with a teak yacht table.
The aft stateroom displays beautiful teak joinery, with parquet flooring throughout the boat, an island double bed with built-in furniture and cabinets and hand-crafted mouldings are blended with modern fabrics to create the traditional yacht look. There is exceptional storage in hanging lockers, bureaus, and below-berth drawers.
The private owners head aft has a separate stall shower and good storage for towels in several cabinets.
The engine room in the 42 Classic is special. With working space outboard of and between both engines there is plenty of installation space for essential gear. The standard 6.5KW generator comes with a sound shield for quiet operation.
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 teak safety rail providing safe movement from bow to stern for those on board.
The Grand Banks 42: In production since the 60s, Ideal for a couple with children or guests, she cruises economically at 10 to 12 knots, yet 17 - 19 knots is typical with the larger 375hp optional engines.
