Standard features: PowerBoat Guide Description
An iconic boat that needs no introduction, the Grand Banks 42 is easily the most successful trawler design ever produced. Although called a trawler, the Grand Banks does not have a trawler hull. Rather, she rides on a semi-displacement hull with a tall bow, hard chines, and a full keel which gives her a moderate 4'2" of draft. The mahogany construction of the original Grand Banks 42 gave way to fiberglass in late 1973. One of the most desirable features of the Grand Banks 42 is her roomy full-teak interior. Although a galley-down layout was available, most were built with the galley forward to port in the salon, opposite the lower helm. The master stateroom is aft and came with a walkaround double berth (twin berths in early models) and split head and shower compartments. The forward stateroom has V-berths. Full walkaround decks make getting around easy and secure. Among many engine options, twin 210hp Cummins (or Cats) diesels cruise at 9-10 knots.
