Her hull shines, the brightwork has been professionally maintained and she has been regularly updated with many extras including top of the range Raymarine navigation equipment, bow and stern thrusters, full suit of covers and additional teak to the forward cabin top all within the last five years. Only for sale as her fastidious owner now wishes to buy larger, early viewing is highly recommended as this must be the best Grand Banks 42 on the market. Now significantly reduced in price and ready to enjoy the season.
