The Grand Banks 42 Classic is regarded by many as the perfect "cruising lifestyle" boat and the semi displacement hull design and a full keel has been proven on waters around the world. The spacious salon provides a comfortable relaxation or entertainment area, with additional dining facilities around the teak yacht table (a Grand Banks trademark). There is a fully equipped galley to port and a complete helm station to starboard. Another known Grand Banks standard is the beautiful teak joinery which they are known for all over the world.

These customary features of quality and dependability combined with reliable electronics and equipment afford you a superior cruising ability without skimping on the comforts you expect from a Grand Banks.

Vessel Walkthrough

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. The fully equipped galley area is to port and the complete helm station is to starboard with complete dual engine instruments. 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.

Ford Lehman 2715E 6D380 120hp


Lehman pioneered the marinization of engines as far back as 1932. By 1980 the Lehman Econ-O-Power trademark was recognized and respected by boat builders and owners throughout the world. For over 50 years, Lehman had been an organization of dedicated boatmen with a keen appreciation of the proper specification and operation of marine power. The compact design of Lehman Econ-O-Power diesels with special monobloc cast iron exhaust manifolds has shell type tubular heat exchangers and coolers for streamlined appearance and long lasting operation. The Lehman Econ-O-Power engine is built using a Ford engine as the "base" unit. Lehman manufactured and provided the "conversion" equipment... those parts that are needed to adapt the Ford engine to marine use. One of Lehmans' most popular diesels, this 380 cubic inch engine is conservatively rated at 120 horsepower at 2500 rpm. This model engine has a long history of thoroughbred performance, beginning in 1958 as the Ford Dagenham diesel. Also contributing to the popularity of this engine are the same high performance, high economy features which characterize all Lehman Power diesel marine engines.
The four cycle design, high compression ratio and overhead valves assure clean burning, odor free combustion. The resulting maximization of fuel economy and dependable performance have established this engine as a "pacesetter" among commercial operators, and a favorite of boaters.
Underlying its rugged performance is its rugged construction...a deep, rigid block. The crankshaft is equipped with large diameter crankpins and main bearings. Four hole injectors are fed by an efficient Simms piston-type fuel injection pump which is driven directly by camshaft gearing. This eliminates the exposed auxiliary drive shaft and couplings that were used in earlier models. Lehman diesel marine engines turn counter-clockwise (viewed from the stern of the boat facing forward). Borg-Warner transmissions offer positive acting, smooth dependable performance under varied loads.

  • Fresh-water cooled exhaust manifold with patented mono-block design allows lower overall engine height. Heavy, cast-iron construction for long life and dependability
  • 12 volt starting motor
  • 55 amp alternator with integral solid state voltage regulator and automatic oil pressure switch (for energizing or disconnecting the system on engine start-up or shut-down).
  • Gear driven raw water pump, constructed of bronze with ball bearings for dependability and longer service life.
  • Rubber impeller for maximum water flow.
  • Flexible fuel supply line prevents fuel supply line from breaking
  • Spin-on, disposable-cartridge oil filter is easily accessible and easy to replace
    Pressurized cooling system
    Efficient fresh-water cooling through shell and tube-type, copper heat exchanger- with pencil zincs for corrosion resistance. Horizontally mounted to eliminate sediment build-up, with access covers for quick cleaning. No aluminum to rot or disintegrate.

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.
