The Grand Banks 42 Classic defined the breed for gracious, economical and safe long-distance cruising, and this particular boat sets the standard as probably the nicest of them on the market in this size and age. It establishes the pedigree that rugged trawlers are judged against. She was built before boat builders realized how cheaply they could build boats and get away with it. Her hull is overbuilt and it features all of the cruising amenities you might hope for. Arrange your inspection before it’s gone!
