An iconic boat that needs no introduction, the Grand Banks 42 is easily the most successful trawler design ever produced. Although called a trawler, the Grand Banks does not have a trawler hull. Rather, she rides on a semi-displacement hull with a tall bow, hard chines, and a full keel which gives her a moderate 4'2" of draft. The mahogany construction of the original Grand Banks 42 gave way to fiberglass in late 1973, and in 1991 (beginning with hull #1203) the hull was lengthened and widened a few inches to add interior volume, mostly in the forward stateroom and galley. One of the most desirable features of the Grand Banks 42 is her roomy full-teak interior. Built with the galley forward to port in the salon, opposite the lower helm. The master stateroom is aft and came with a walkaround double berth (twin berths in early models) and split head and shower compartments. The forward stateroom has V-berths. A door at the helm provides deck access, and full walkaround decks make getting around easy and secure. (Powerboat Guide)
