About this Grand Banks 42 Classic


2001 Grand Banks 42 Classic - Moondance

"Moondance" is one of the best Grand Banks 42' Classics available on the market. She was re- powered less than a year ago and has only 300 hrs on her Caterpillar 3208TA engines, all but guaranteeing years of reliable service and easy maintenance. Life style changes make her available now.

With over 1500 delivered the iconic GRAND BANKS 42' Classic remains the most successful trawler design ever produced. Introduced in 1966, the original mahogany construction gave way to fiberglass in late 1973.

The GRAND BANKS 42's semi-displacement hull with it's long keel, hard chines and a deep forefoot, provides a level of stability and comfort seldom matched by other boats. Full teak interior with galley up at the port side forward, lower helm door to starboard & mid-salon door to port enhance ingress & egress to either side, a must when locking through or docking at a different port each evening.

Surrounded by large cabin windows, visibility from the lower helm is excellent in all directions, and there's plenty of flybridge seating for when fine weather prevails. She also has a large aft cockpit for easy line handling or for cooking dinner on the rail mounted Magma grill, plus wide walk- arounds that allow easy access to all four corners of the boat, a must for serious cruising.

Truly a couple's dream for extended cruising, day trips or taking a group of friends around the bay for sight seeing.

A pleasure to show, a pleasure to own, a pleasure to sell, "Moondance" may be just the Grand Banks 42' you've wished for.
