The Grand Banks 42 is one of the most popular production boats of modern times. Originally built in wood beginning in 1965, and later in fiberglass in 1973, over 1,400 of these dependable diesel cruisers have been launched. The GB42 is an ideal size for a cruising couple or a family with occasional guests. Displacing approximately 35,000lbs, she is big enough to comfortably handle rough conditions, yet very manageable for a couple to handle without additional crew.

More info


At first glance, it's easy to see the advantage of the Motoryacht's extra wide aft cabin. Here, the owner is treated to a queen-sized, walk-around bed surrounded by dressers, a huge hanging locker, and a writing desk. Complete with a private head and stall shower, this aft cabin will make the owners feel right at home. With opening ports and a ceiling hatch, there is plenty of light and ventilation.

The Motoryacht's interior size allows for two forward staterooms. A large head with stall shower is shared, and there is even room for the installation of an optional washer/dryer combination. An optional plan moves the galley down to the forward area, eliminating one guest stateroom and increasing the main saloon space.

The wide aft deck also provides space for lounging and is fitted out with two large deck boxes for stowage. This deck is the perfect place to watch the sunset and to barbecue while at anchorage. Adjacent to the flybridge, the aft deck also provides an expansive space for entertaining large numbers of guests while underway or at a marina.

The GB42 Motoryacht is all Grand Banks inside and out. It offers an incredible amount of useful interior and exterior room for its length and is an ideal choice for those cruising with frequent guests or a large family.

The aft stateroom takes advantage of the full width of the hull, resulting in an impressive amount of living space and stowage.

Main Saloon with galley-down layout features comfortable seating around a hi-lo yacht table and additional seating at the serving counter. The galley-down is fully-equipped with a refrigerator/freezer and features plenty of counter and storage space.

The guest stateroom in the galley-up layout features a double berth and hanging locker.
