MAJOR PRICE REDUCTION!!! PRICE SLASHED $20000. 30 OCT 2013.
PASSPORT VI NOW OFFERED AT $159000,. Lake CHAMPLAIN, UPSTATE NY.
YOU WILL NOT FIND ANOTHER GRAND BANKS 42 OF THIS VINTAGE WITH nearly $100,000. IN UPGRADES, AND IMPROVEMENTS SPENT ON HER OVER THE PAST 6 YEARS BY HER OWNERS AND STEWARDS WHO BROUGHT 3 DECADES PLUS OF YACHTING EXPERIENCE ABOARD WHEN THEY PURCHASED HER 6 YEARS AGO.
This past June the owner's asked their marine electrician and mechanic to look for things that needed attention in their respective areas of expertise and then asked them to attend to their lists. The work is done and PASSPORT VI is ready for survey.
Passport VI belongs to yacht owners of long experience who are exceptional stewards and have managed the maintenance and improvements of this Grand Banks 42' Classic as would a professional Captain. It is a challenge to accurately guess the year of build of any of the yachts they have owned as they always appear much newer than they are.
All NEW teak decks replaced the original in 2003, but one would think this was a much more recent improvement as they appear to be new.
PASSPORT VI is stored on the hard at Plattsburgh Boat Basin and will be shrunk wrapped; her storage has paid for and her bridge bimini has been cleaned, waterproofed and the eisenglass has been polished; at the owner's expense.
Her owner would consider delivering her on her own bottom to a U. S. East Coast port for the next owner.
There is a prepurchase survey report from 2007 available on request; as the detail of this listing suggests, much has been done since then to put her in the exceptional condition she is in today
You will be challenged to find one of her vintage in better condition at this price level.
Over $100,000.00 has been spent on hard improvements (not routine maintenance) since 2007.

I just recently visited PASSPORT VI and her owners on Lake Champlain in Plattsburgh, NY. The Plattsburgh Boat Basin is a large marina and on entering I spotted a new Grand Banks 42' admired her for a few seconds and then continued to search with my eyes to locate PASSPORT VI. after driving around to the other side, I concluded that I should drive around to look at the transom of the new Grand Banks 42'; there she was! If you are driving from NY to Maine on 95 and focused on seeing all the Grand Banks 42's available in brokerage, you would not be doing diligence if you don't go to Plattsburgh to see PASSPORT VI, in fact you would probably miss the best of all!!!
If price motivates you to buy another or smaller, at least satisfy yourself that you've seen the best of her vintage.
I updated my photo file for her on this trip and will happily share them on request.
PASSPORT VI had a NEW (2010) custom arrangement built into her aft cabin with a much more generously-sized queen-sized berth with the head to Starboard and a separate stall shower. New teak lockers were added in theme with existing.
