Additional Information


The Grand Banks 42 Europas are renowned for their handsome, well appointed, full teak interiors. This particular 42 has solid teak parquet sole and can accommodate four in her two-stateroom layout. Natural light and ventilation are abundant with windows, many of them sliders with screens surrounding the galley and salon, while four stainless steel ports with screens and three large hatches provide equally substantial light and ventilation below decks. When natural ventilation is insufficient, two 16,000 btu reverse cycle (heat and cool) will keep all of the spaces at a comfortable temperature, or if cruising early or late in the session provide plenty of heat. An abundance of 12-volt lightning meets all the needs with several overhead lamps in working spaces and swivel style reading lamps at all berths and settees.


The Salon is accessed from the covered aft deck. The large windows make it feel very open. The full-width Salon with L-sette, aft of which is a small end table with drawers.  Opposite the settee are two barrel chairs, between which there is a credenza, which houses the yacht's entertainment systems.  All of the salon upholstery is Indigo Blue Ultra Suede and curtains with a matching stripe provide privacy when desired.

One of the nice pluses to the Europa layout is the double sliding doors aft in the Salon that open out onto the sheltered, yet open aft deck, truly bringing the outdoors in and expanding the salon space.

  • Sony AM/FM/CD stereo
  • Speakers in the Salon, Aft Deck, and flying bridge all with individual controls
  • Toshiba 17" TV and DVD player
  • 3 CO monitors
  • Optional indirect salon accent lighting
  • Optional Master Stateroom indirect accent lighting



Starting forward is the private Master Stateroom, featuring a 6'-6" plus V-berth, (filler could easily be added), below which there is storage in drawers the master has 3 large opening port lights and a large opening overhead hatch.  Above the berth the hull is lined with varnished teak ceilings and storage shelves.  Access to the anchor locker is forward.  Aft of the stbd vee is the generous cedar lined hanging locker with light.  Private access to the Master Head is aft and to starboard.  The Master Head features a large Corian-topped vanity with under mount sink and excellent storage in drawers and lockers, a Vacuflush fresh water W.C., and a stall shower compartment which drains to a separate sump. The Master Head is very comfortable and features 3 large opening port lights and a large overhead opening hatch. The V-berth arrangement is actually more comfortable than the standard island queen arrangement.

Opposite the Master Head is the Guest Stateroom, featuring an L-shaped arrangement for the berths, with 6'-6" single berth running athwart ships along the aft bulkhead and fore and aft outboard, with a hanging locker inboard and drawers below the outboard berth.  The guest stateroom has 2 large opening port lights and a large overhead opening hatch.  At the forward bulkhead is a door leading to the Guest Head, featuring a Vacuflush W.C. Corian vanity with sink and storage and in suite shower arrangement draining to a separate sump.

This Grand Banks 42 has a very nice layout not typical of the series, in that if affords to separate heads as well as the typical two private staterooms.




The Galley is to port and is U-shaped, providing generous amounts of counter space and storage.  Chilled food stuffs are easily handled in the front-loading refrigeration box and top-loading freezer box, both equipped with Gurnert holding plates, while cooking is managed on the Force 10 three-burner stove with oven (,currently removed and Wine cooler is in its place), Overhead aft is a large Sharp Carousel Convection Microwave.  The galley is fitted with Corian counter surfaces and a double basin stainless steel sink.  An abundance of additional storage for food stuffs and galley ware is easily handled in several lockers and drawers, as well as in a "pantry cabinet" in the adjacent companionway.  A bar cabinet is opposite the galley and provides storage for wine bottles, glasses, etc., and houses the U-Line Ice maker.

Lower Helm

The Lower Helm is to starboard and features a double bench seat with drawer storage and a locker below, full vessel controls and electronics, and the yacht's electrical distribution panels.  The loser helm has an access door to the side deck giving you quick access to the side deck.  Many owners find this station more convent for docking.  The lower helm is great to have in bad weather.

Hull &Deck

Solid fiberglass hull with molded in plank lines, spray and rub rails with original white gel coat in excellent condition with blue boot top. The bottom has been finished with a red epoxy finished bottom paint showing no build up and is quite fair.  The hull was laid up with Hydrex resin in the exterior laminates for superior osmotic blistering resistance.

Fiberglass decks with a 9/16" (thickest in the industry) teak decking overlay on the side decks and flying bridge.  Stainless steel safety rails with gates P&S.  The difficult=to-maintain teak planking on the transom was eliminated on this boat and she is one of the more modern Grand Banks 42's, with a fully-molded-in flying bridge, thus eliminating the teak trim band.  However, in keeping with the attractive and traditional line of the boat, there are well maintained teak cap rails and brow around the edge of the hard top and a few other varnished teak accoutrements.  Exterior hardware is all polished stainless steel.

Starting aft is the gracious aft deck with voluminous deep lazarettes below as well as the "garage" just aft of the sliding helm door that access auxiliary equipment and provides additional storage.  Wide side decks with bulwarks and railings lead forward to the substantial anchor platform.  A huge plus to the Grand Banks 42 Europa is the walk-up flying bridge access courtesy of the molded in steps with storage under that access that space from the aft deck.

The Flying Bridge offers a superior layout, with two Stidd Chairs with high stainless steel posts forward and the optional molded fiberglass L-settee aft and to starboard, as well as a teak table for dining or dinning.  The chairs and settee are all fitted with Sunbrella covers.
