Introduced in 1987, the Grand Banks 42 Motor Yacht is a traditional sundeck cruising yacht of uncommon beauty and elegance. She never came near the popularity of the 42 Classic, but enough were sold to make these boats fairly common on the brokerage market. With accommodations for up to three couples, the 42 Motoryacht was popular with those who entertain as well as cruise. Two interiors were offered; a standard three-stateroom layout with the galley up, or optional two-stateroom plan with the galley down. Behind the helm to starboard is an L-shaped dining area with teak table and settee. Steps at the aft end of the salon lead down to the elegant full beam master stateroom with walkaround queen bed, built-in desk, and generous storage. The aft deck is easily covered by a separate Bimini from the flybridge and makes a spacious outdoor entertaining area. In 1991, Grand Banks redesigned the hull of all of their 42-footers, expanding the width and length by six inches. Among several engine options, twin 210hp Cats cruise at 8–10 knots and twin 375hp Cats cruise at 14–15 knots.


Motoryacht version of GB 42 Classic boasts enlarged master stateroom, full-beam afterdeck, standard three-stateroom floorplan.


Highlights include full teak interior, port/starboard salon doors, wide side decks, fold-down mast, roomy flybridge, bow pulpit, protected prop. Note simulated lapstrake hull lines. Two-stateroom, galley down interior was optional.


Hull redesign in 1992 increased width, length by 6 inches. Exemplary fit and finish.


Twin 210hp Cats cruise at 10 knots; 375 Cats cruise at 14–15 knots.
