The spacious main salon of the GB 42 combines the activities hub, entertainment center and main living area. This is truly a multipurpose salon with facilities for dining around the teak yacht table and settee.

There is immediate access to the side deck from the helm station through the starboard door and just aft of the door is a teak bar cabinet.

Looking aft in the main saloon you see the long L-shaped settee with the yacht table. The companionway leads forward to the guest's stateroom and aft to the main stateroom. To port is an additional bench seat, counter and extra storage space. The spacious flybridge has full instruments and controls and watertight storage under the seats.

Cold Plate Refrigeration

A "hold over" system is not like your common household refrigerator. The availability of 110 volt power is limited on a boat therefore, the refrigerator is not capable of cycling on and off everytime the door is opened allowing cold air to "maintain" box temperatures over a longer period of time compared to manufactured AC/DC refrigerators. In addition to this refrigeration system the insulation is much much thicker and therefore far more efficient for keeping a desired temperature without a constant power supply. Quite often in a moderate climate the holdover system will only require one hour operation to maintain a desired temperature every 12 hours.



Solid hand laid laminated fiberglass hull construction with an estimated thickness of over an inch thick below the waterline. The simulated carvel planking or grooved hull sides were intended to give the fiberglass hulls the appearance of their mahogany predecessors. The construction is all fiberglass including the house, superstructure and decks with teak planking overlay.
