Very nice, really.

Not a big issue, but I’m a woman, I’m not a “Sir” .

The original owner of this Grand Banks 42 Motor Yacht - a world-famous man in the field of the best yachts' builders who is a friend of my husband - went ahead with a long dream to build a personal boat.

The boat is powered by a single engine Gardner 6LX. The Gardner is backed up by a Faryman powered Trawler Hauler, a unit assembled by Engineering Technology of New Jersey which drives a 6kw alternator as well as a hydraulic motor turning a small wing propeller capable of driving the boat at around 3 1/2 knots.

Also the Gardner is mounted on massive engine beds using Swedish made Scatra mounts and propeller thrust is absorbed by a thrust bearing. This unique arrangement, which also incorporates a highly flexible coupling, eliminates virtually all vibrations. The engine room is fully lined with lead/form sound insulation and all access hatches are fitted with neoprene gaskets and latches.

The result is a boat which is so quiet as to be uncanny and, under all but the most silent environments, it’s difficult to be sure that the engine is running without consulting the instruments. All the overheads, hull-sides and even exhaust hoses have also been cocooned in fiberglass insulation.

A total of 960 US gallons of diesel is carried in 2 fuel tanks made of marine aluminium. A special anchor platform was developed with 2 rollers for 2 anchors.

The original owner had scoured the world for best available and the list is impressive. Engine from England, transmission from the USA, coupling from Sweden, stuffing box from France, windlass from Italy, spars from Australia, instruments from Germany, stainless steel from Japan, teak from Burma, interiors lamp from Denmark, and the skill contributed by the craftsmen of American Marine Ltd boat yard in Singapore who dovetailed all the pieces together.

It's one of the very few Grand Banks which have more than one mast.

Did they take that second mast from the Prince Albert's GB50?
