Broker's Comments

Trawler yachts have experienced a revival in recent years. And, known for it's timelessly handsome style and solid construction, few, if any, are more recognizable or in greater demand than the Grand Banks 42 Classic.

This example is exceptionally maintained and presented. She has a high specification which would delight any serious purchaser.

We would strongly recommend an early viewing for anyone wanting near perfect coastal cruising
