Stunning Grand Banks 42 Motor Yacht, ready to hit the water with its new owners.


The Grand Banks 42 Motoryacht was decades in the making. The original Ken Smith design was 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 since. Her practical layout, sturdy fiberglass construction, deep water design, and long range capability all add up to a complete cruising boat. The Grand Banks semi displacement hull design, with a fine entry forward, hard chines aft, and a full keel has been proven on waters around the world.
