"Promises" is an impeccable example of one of the most highly regarded cruising yachts ever made. She is hull #1461 of a grand total of 1,560 Grand Banks' 42s made since production first began in 1965. Kept predominantly on the brackish waters of the Chesapeake Bay her current owners purchased "Promises" from us back in 2007. They have maintained the boat with an open checkbook, have full records and she is ready for her next owner to get right on board and enjoy! Please feel free to email me for a pdf of her logbook so you can get a sense of how she was consistently cruised, maintained and never left sitting idle!
Powered by the twin 375hp CAT 3208TA's, "Promises" benefits from the most preferred engine package for those seeking reliability, economy, and the flexibility to actual pick up and run if weather or scheduling dictate the need. At 34,900lbs she cruises quite efficiently and comfortably between 8 and 12 knots and at wide open throttle she will see speeds reaching 16 knots.
"Promises" has seen continuous annual updates and additions to her inventory throughout her lifetime and she is well equipped with a full list of cruising, comfort, and safety features. She if outfitted for the serious cruiser with watermaker, large battery banks, massive anchor and chain ground tackle, and a fiberglass bottomed tender. She is perfect for cruising from the Exumas to Maine and is ready to go now!

The interior of "Promises" is a showpiece with the owner having updated to all LED lighting along with having a professional marine interior company redo all the salon settees in a neutral and glove leather soft ultra-leather. This same ultra-leather was used to cover the two standalone dining chairs as well as the guest stateroom berth cushions. Throughout the interior all of the curtains were removed and replaced as well. On the exterior there are new textaline window covers for every window and all new flybridge cushions. "Promises" benefits from the mild Chesapeake Bay environment and is kept indoors for at least five months of the year during heated indoor winter storage.
"Promises" benefits from an owner who firmly believes in fixing things prior to failure and is willing to spend the money to keep the mechanicals in top shape. The boat sees at least one or more trip to Haven Harbour (a GB authorized service center) annually and the owner is always ahead of the curve with a punch list of items that he sees professionally completed year after year. Haven Harbour has completed costly maintenance items such as the replacement of the dripless shaft seals, renewal of cutlass bearings and having the propellers being tuned. They have also completed items such as replacement of all five AGM 8-D batteries, re-manufacturing and upgrading alternators, servicing/replacing of pumps, rebuilding of the watermaker, adding an anchor washdown and much, much more! The Caterpillars and Generator are also serviced and maintained professionally and receive proactive care just like the rest of the boat (Thousand Hour Service Just Completed!). These are just a few of the examples of outstanding care and good preventative maintenance that "Promises" receives!
Grand Banks 42 layout: guest cabin forward with V-berth and en-suite head with shower. The salon offers a straight line galley forward to port, lower helm opposite to starboard. Aft of helm is dry bar with ice maker, a large L-settee with corner table top/storage and the classic teak GB yacht table. Opposite the salon table, on the port side, is a 2-person settee with corner built-in freezer. The aft cabin features a centerline island queen berth. The head is a very functional “split-head” in that the shower stall is on starboard with head and sink to port.
