Bluegrass Yacht Description

You could easily mistake this boat for one that's at least ten years newer.  New main decks, a recent bottom job and engines that have been consistently serviced with a maintenance log and annual oil sample reports for the last nine years. Current owner is a retired engineer whose rigorous approach to maintenance means that this boat could leave the dock tomorrow for that cruise you always wanted to take.
BLUEGRASS  is a clean, uncluttered classic 42' Grand Banks in excellent condition.  She offers twin Ford Lehman 135 HP engines, Westerbeke 8 KW generator, and a 10 foot Walker Bay RIB tender with a Tohatsu 6hp 4-stroke outboard. She has had many new systems and components added in the last few years, including all new Garmin electronics (2015), new fresh water tanks (2015) and a completely new teak main deck (2017).
