Grand Banks 42 EU - A timeless beauty with a fantastic comfort!

This magnificent Grand Banks 42 EU combines high-quality, safety, and performance with exceptionally comfortable for a smaller crew.
The boat is like a miniature ship, offering a delightful mix of relaxed cruising and the capability for swift passages when needed - perfect for long voyages or easy days at sea.

Grand Banks' philosophy encompasses robust and high-class construction along with reliable, well-known technology that is easily serviced. All equipment is robustly dimensioned, from the cleats to the engines.
The design of the Grand Banks 42 EU bears a striking resemblance to the American lobster trawlers, known for their exceptional seaworthiness.
Unlike Grand Banks' Classic versions, this EU version features a very spacious salon, a forward master cabin, and a large, covered aft deck suitable for all weather conditions.

The spacious and bright salon offers magnificent views in all directions. There's a substantial sofa with a large table and comfortable chairs for enjoyable gatherings. Further forward to port, the well-equipped galley is positioned to ensure a pleasurable cooking experience.
On the opposite side, the helm station houses all necessary electronics and technology conveniently accessible to the skipper or navigator. Through the starboard door, the skipper can easily access the deck, particularly during harbor maneuvers.
In the bow, the luxurious master cabin boasts a large, wide berth, numerous drawers and cabinets, and access to a private WC with a separate shower compartment to starboard.
A smaller cabin is to port from the stairs, featuring a narrower double berth and an upper bunk that can be stowed away when not needed.
The boat's second WC is situated to starboard and has also access to the shower room.
The interior is predominantly finished in a matte lacquered, solid teak, providing a classic feel without appearing outdated.

The well-protected and spacious aft deck offers a wonderful space for relaxation and social gatherings. Sliding doors to the salon can be opened, creating a unified space between the salon and the aft deck. Below the aft deck, there are huge storage areas and various technical components.
The deck areas are well-planned with wide walkways and high railings for maximum safety, even in challenging conditions.
The spacious flybridge is a fantastic place for the crew to enjoy when the weather permits, also providing the skipper with improved visibility during harbor maneuvers. A broad and secure staircase leads up to the flybridge.
The dinghy is stored on the flybridge and can be easily launched using the boom on the mast.

Beneath the salon, there is a well-insulated and proper engine room housing the robust and long-lasting Caterpillar engines and other technical equipment, all easily accessible for servicing.

Grand Banks is renowned for utilizing simple and proven mechanics for engines, gearboxes, etc. to facilitate repairs and service while ensuring the highest possible reliability.

At cruising speed, consumption is only about 2 liters per nautical mile, providing a range of over 1000 nautical miles without refueling.

The Grand Banks 42 is surprisingly easy to maneuver in harbors due to its long keel, twin engines, and powerful bow thruster.

The boat is in very good condition, well-maintained, and has been continuously updated over the years.
It has no grounding or other notable damage.
