Welcome aboard, and good luck in your search. The GB 42 is a beautiful and capable boat.
There are several well populated threads on the Forum that may help you.
Boat search 101, the Grand Banks section under makes, and individual threads about buying, using, or selling GB 42s. The Library icon is at the top of the main page.
When we were looking, we found that Yachtbroker.com had the nicer boats, at higher prices. Boats.com and boattrader.com had a wider range of prices, on boats which ranged from very nice to salvage / junk. Craigslist in major boating cities may also be a place to look.
You already know that Grand Banks changed their hulls from wood to fiberglass in 1974, for most models. Many of the cheaper boats are wood.
If you have sorted out how and where you will use her, you may be able to find a good boat that the PO has already added the bells and whistles you may want for your intended use.
It might also pay to look at other boats in that size and quality range, to see other arrangements of similar spaces. Good luck and good hunting.

Good luck but if you tell us more info we could help?

What is your budget? what year is the GB42 will need to be ?

what is your boating experience and level of maintenance confidence or ability?


my dream boat would of been a GB but I settle for a Mainship as a poor relative maybe a younger brother?

I am very confident in maintenance of boats so choose boats that have a solid hull and engine but can do with replacing say electrics and small bits around the boat>?

how do you rate yourself?

We purchased a GB 36 this year through Annie Gray...Gray and Gray Yacht brokerage in Maine. She was the selling broker but was absolutely great to deal with from my point of view. Honest, straight forward, and patient. First class! Has a good handle on a lot of Northern boats. Get to know her and she will find you the right boat. Highly recommended!

Did you buy the 36 classic that was for sale on her site with the newer motor and recent refit items??

I'm not sure whether or not you are still looking for a Grand Banks 42. If so I have one in excellent condition available for purchase in Port Charlotte Fl. Please contact me your requirements and budget.
