42 Grand Banks Motoryacht

Well, we think we're going to put her up for sale. It's good and bad. We think we're ready to move into a house, but to do that, we have to sell our current house which is our beautiful Rose Mary.


We haven't contacted a broker yet or settled on a list price (I know you were going to ask). But I wanted to give TF a preview since we did so much work on the boat. I put all of our photos on a site as well as a list of features and upgrades. Please review and let me know if you see anything obvious that's missing (besides price) and I'll add it in. I used Wix, it was actually really easy, did it in about half a day.



The site: https://westinmhill.wixsite.com/rose-mary



Thank you all for being so helpful!

Beautiful boat! Looks like you've done a ton of work, I'd say it shows exceptionally well. Best of luck with the sale!

She’s beautiful. I would consider it if I weren’t totally in love with mine! She should sell fast!

Holy carp! I have never seen a 42 Banks done so well. Especially a 1985. That being said, quit teasing us. Give us the details. Prices, engines, hrs, stabilizers etc, etc. This is" The best in show" I have ever seen.

Good Lord that is one fine looking boat. I would like to save the pictures just to use for reference on what can be done to make a boat nicer. I will look for the price fully knowing that it is likely not in my price range, but I am shopping. congratulations on your work and vision for the boat. Very impressive. Bill

Having owned a GB, I really appreciate what you did with the windows. Eliminating the sliding windows is a big improvement. Great looking boat, good luck with the sale.

Thank you all for the compliments!
There's details listed under 'specification and upgrades', I made the menu pop a little more so it's not overlooked.

We can't say price yet because we haven't met with a broker, don't want to start off on the wrong foot.



We reached out to one broker, but any other recommendations for a broker for this kind of boat would be most welcome.

It is a Beauty! I love how you have kept up on the exposed teak, can't say I would be able to do that. In fact, I am in the process of painting all my exposed teak.

It's a Grand Banks, it is Lehman powered and obviously well loved. Replacing the tanks is HUGE, all the other upgrades are nice selling points.

My guess is that you will want about $125,000 for it. I think that is a little high given the year of the boat. Anxiously waiting to see what you will ask.

(I'm not in the market though)

He will get more than that for it but from my experience he will be lucky to get anywhere near what he has invested.

"Awesome" is an overworked word, but in this case it's the only word I can think of. Some lucky buyer will spend years marveling at the thoughtful mods and exquisite upkeep this great GB has received. Good luck with the sale!

As pretty as it is, it is forum rules that a price must be listed in the post.

Yeah, I see that now. It's not listed yet so we can't put a price. Can you recommend a better area of the forum to post this and/or help move the thread?

Wow, very impressive and you delivered a thoughtful balance between tradition and modernization. Love the master head, might steal that as head upgrades are on next season's to-do list.
