The Grand Banks 42 Europa has a history going back to 1970 when the original mahogany Europas were built for the European market. Only a few of the wood models were brought into this country, and it wasnt until 1979 the Europa was seriously marketed in the U.S. In 1991, however, the Europa was retired from the Grand Banks fleet due to lagging sales. When she was reintroduced in 1996, the Europa was built on a new, slightly larger hull allowing for an enlarged forward stateroom and stairs to replace the former flybridge ladder. As with all Grand Banks yachts, the Europas interior is a blend of handcrafted teak joinery and premium hardware and fixtures. While the salon dimensions arent extravagant for a boat this size (thanks in part to the wide side decks), large cabin windows make the interior seem open and comfortable. Built on the same semi-displacement, hard-chined hull as the Grand Banks 42 Classic, the Europas flybridge extends over the aft deck and side decks. Note the teak decks and large cockpit lazarette. Among several engine choices, 210hp Cat diesels cruise at 10 knots, and twin 375hp Cats cruise at 1415 knots.
