About this Grand Banks 42 Europa


This beautiful Grand Banks Europa has been maintained to a very high level making her a stunning example of her class.

The larger engine option, 425hp Caterpillars give her either an impressive 18 knots, not bad for over 15 tonnes or are happy to potter at low speeds thanks to their modern management system. Prices to fit Air conditioning are reasonable and available on request.
