sold 42 Grand Banks Motoryacht 1985 - Rose Mary

Finally! Sorry for the wait everyone. After much deliberation and wading through a bunch of comps some folks were kind enough to pull for us, we finally settled in on a starting list price and to go for 'sale-by-owner'. Thank you for all the feedback and support.



42 Grand Banks Motoryacht 1985.

In the water at Charlestown Marina, Charlestown, MA.

List: $229,000
A few photos and the description are below, but see the website for complete pictures, description, and upgrades: https://westinmhill.wixsite.com/rose-mary



We just got a survey done last week to raise the hull value for insurance. This is not intended to replace a buyer survey - but it could help somebody decide whether or not she's worth a look-see.



Please PM with any questions and/or interest!



Description:Rose Mary is a truly a one-of-a-kind Grand Banks. Having undergone a tasteful refit from 2017 to 2020, she succeeds in striking the difficult balance between classic and modern. Her recognizable lines stand out against her peers with pristine Awlwood rails, fully-renewed teak decks, and all-new double pane windows. Inside you'll find numerous accents including shiplap ceilings, hand-turned control knobs, marble and granite countertops, and a tile shower. Her layout maximizes comfort with a walk-around queen in the master aft stateroom and an expanded down-galley with full-size refrigerator and dishwasher, leaving room for ample seating in the saloon. All living spaces were insulated to provide comfort in both warm and cool weather. From a maintenance perspective, all new tanks (holding, water & fuel), all new plumbing, and a refurbished electrical system promise dependable cruising for years to come. At only 5,000 hours, her reliable Lehman 135 twin diesel engines will continue to provide thousands and thousands of hours of economical cruising at 8.5 knots.

Please reach out if you have any interest. We're selling by owner in-part because we want to make sure all the knowledge we've gained over the years of refit are passed on to the new owners.

Your boat

Iím interested. We will be buying a GB 42 soon. We were hoping to find a fresh water Classic closer to home in Duluth MN.
Is your boat kept in a fresh water harbor?
5,000 hours seems high side to me. Has it been surveyed? Engine oil analyzed?
Thanks, Owen Christensen

Hi Owen, I love Duluth - I have a good friend living there and I'm originally from Wausau, WI and my wife from Owatonna, MN. Being that I'm from the midwest we might consider making a delivery over there since I've always wanted to take it up the Hudson. I'd honestly love somebody from the north to have it because of the insulation, diesel heater, and double pane windows - you'd just appreciate it more in the shoulder seasons than somebody from the south.



The boat is not a freshwater boat, it's currently in the Boston harbor but was a Florida boat for most of its life. Though it has been in salt water, all the seacocks are in excellent condition and the engine cooling system is clean. The exhaust elbow was upgraded to the newer stainless version. I think the previous owners must have kept up well with the zincs, as do I.



Unfortunately, I was stupid and did not do the engine oil analysis over time, so only have a snapshot from when we bought the boat in 2017. 5,000 hours on Ford Lehmans is not too high - but you should definitely look through the forum. You'll probably see numbers from 10k-12k for lifetimes on those engines. At 5k the transmissions usually start to have trouble, but they've already been replaced with TwinDisc so you're good there. The engines have not been surveyed but the boat has.


Please let me know if you have any more questions!


Wes

Boat looks great! So many critical areas (tanks, decks, windows) taken care of Owen- 5000 hrs is not high side -itís a 1985 boat, do the math. Brian Smith @ American Diesel would tell u thatís nothing.

100% agree - 5000 hrs on a well tended diesel is not a problem. Would also note the transmissions have been replaced, which are probably more common failure points. When I was young, I worked in a motorcycle restoration shop. 80% of the low-mileage beauties were low-mileage for a reason: something broke and never got fixed properly. I remember one BMW R69S where someone had replaced the carburetor floats with large corks and a wonky magneto - clearly, OEM parts were not available, so the bike sat for 25 years. Contrast that with dozens of similar vintage BMW's with at least 100k miles on them (5-place odometer) that would start on first kick. My point is: don't assume high-hours is a bad thing. Well-used and well-cared for is a really good thing.

That said, a fresh water Great Lakes' boat that was stored in a climate controlled shed during winters would be great. A bit of a unicorn, but maybe there's one out there.

Knowing what I know about F.L.s, Grand Banks and Duluth it is a match made in Heaven.

Personally though, I wouldn't pay that price for a 35 year old boat of that size, no matter how nice.

sorry,

pete

High hours on engines wouldn't scare me off as much as super low hours and these aren't even what I would consider high hours.

This is an absolutely lovely vessel and extremely well cared for, if I lived on the East Coast I'd have to have a look.

Westiculo, good luck with your sale, nice work!

and how did you get the windows so nice and original looking, I need a few like those?

I personally do not consider these to be high hour engines. If the vessel shows care and maintenance, these engines will easily go 10k hours. Considering a full time 40-hr/wk job works out to 1800 hours per year, there's a lot of life left in these.

That is one good looking GB. The original windows were all sliders, doesn't look like there are any left on this boat, eliminates leaks, mildew in the tracks. Lovely galley. We had a '91 GB, not a motor yacht, so I can appreciate what was involved.Those engines are just broken in, they can run 25k hours if cared for.
Good luck with the sale

Wes, Ive seen your boat in Charlestown over the past few years. You moving up? You were a full time liveaboard too right?

Nice boat!

Hey, thank you all!

Put a ton of work into it. Weíre actually moving out to the mountains likely. Job opportunity in Colorado. I do believe that by boat is the secret hack to sweet living in Boston.

Say a little prayer for me, Rose Marie, Rose Marie......

Sorry, I absolutely had to do that.

If someone really covets the GB 42, there is no way this boat could not be part of the equation. I guess I would move up in model years until I got to this price range and then compare them heads up. As long as the structure is dry, everything done on this boat will need to be done on a newer boat at some point, and likely sooner than will be needed again on Rose Marie. If she has good bones, this one is mighty fine. Like the corner used car lot guy might say- 'If you can find a better one at this price, buy it". I have no doubt there is a buyer for this beauty. The corner used car lot guy has another saying "there is an ass for every seat". Go find that *ss. Good luck with the sale. It is so nice to see a boat so well cared for. A rarity in this type of boat. When you see one it is an "oh my" moment.

Sorry I missed it.

It was probably more than I want to spend, but it does point out the need to move on the right boat quickly.
Still looking for a GB 42 through 49 , hopefully in the Great Lakes.
