The Grand Banks 42 Classic was 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 today.
Her practical layout, sturdy fiberglass construction, deep water design, and long range capability all add up to a complete cruising boat. The Grand Banks semidisplacement hull design, with a fine entry forward, hard chines aft, and a full keel has been proven on waters around the world.
The flybridge is easily accessible from the main deck and offers excellent 360-degree visibility when underway or maneuvering dockside. A pair of back-to-back double seats provide generous seating for eight with watertight storage beneath the seats. The bridge console has full instrumentation with handy storage for large items below. The steering wheel is handcrafted teak.
The foredeck storage locker is great for lines and the large 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 center, 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 (New mattress/cushions) 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 covered with Italian leather and a teak yacht table. The aft stateroom displays a Island Queen berth and beautiful teak joinery. Parquet soles, built-in furniture and cabinets and hand-crafted moldings.. A large, flat chart drawer is standard in each layout. The private owners head 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 8-KW generator comes with a sound shield for quiet operation.
