    UnCorked" is a wonderful example of a time proven classic 42-foot trawler and a great loop, Bahamas and Florida Keys veteran built by American Marine. Fiberglass, hull number 374, with 2100 hours, this boat was originally built to the exacting specifications of JFK's PT Commodore. This boat has an oversized, fully enclosed bridge with Strataglass (2013) and no-see-um screens aft. Both helms include full set of gauges and alarms, Garmin 12” touchscreens/chart plotters. This boat has always been professionally maintained and upgraded.

    In a Boat US Review: “… the Grand Banks 42 has changed little in her three and a half decades of production. Though still a niche market, trawler yachts have experienced a revival in recent years. And, known for its timelessly handsome style and solid construction, few, if any, are more recognizable or in greater demand than the Grand Banks 42 Classic.

    The quality of joiner work of Grand Banks has become the benchmark for this class of yacht and, although often copied, quite frankly the quality is seldom matched by competitors. Inside the GB42 Classic, the layout features a two-stateroom/two-head arrangement divided by midship saloon and galley. The GB42 has large cabin windows that let in plenty of light so the interior never appears dudgeon like...

    … There have been very few changes over the years to the basic interior arrangement although in recent years Grand Banks has reduced its use of teak veneered plywood.

    The arrangement of the GB42 is centered around the main saloon with entrance companionways on either side. The saloon is spacious with an L-shaped dinette, which converts to a double bed, aft to starboard and an opposite side storage and counter with large TV. The galley is arranged on the port side forward and storage is ample and easily reached. Forward and to starboard is the lower helm adjacent to the companionway and there is a small bar between the dinette and helm.

    From the main saloon, you go down several steps to the forward cabin that feature a large V-berth, head to starboard and hanging lockers to port. There are ample drawers and storage below the V-berth, headroom is well over 6' and an overhead deck hatch for natural ventilation. The master stateroom is aft of the main saloon and again down several steps. The traditional aft cabin layout has been converted to a king size bed. A large head and shower/tub forward of the berth and a hanging locker, which includes the washer-dryer. This layout offers a king-size berth, a large dresser and table with ample storage.

    The Grand Banks 42 is not the right boat if you want a full displacement ocean-going motor vessel, but it certainly fits the need of the vast majority of boaters who don't intend to venture far offshore or cross oceans.

    The Grand Banks 42 easily accommodates a dozen people for cocktails, six can dine in reasonable comfort and when it's time to turn in for the evening she provides privacy and comfort for four. This is may be why many who are willing to travel at a leisurely, slow pace consider the Grand Banks 42 Classic a near perfect coastal cruising powerboat.”
