Grand Banks 42 Classic

JUST LISTED. MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW. ABSOLUTELY PRISTINE. A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF THE WIDE BODY GRAND BANKS 43’3 LOA. The HALCYON is the second Grand Banks trawler for this owner, who is a former Grand Banks salesman. The gentleman selected Halcyon for his own after inspecting the yacht for a client who opted for a larger boat. She is a former boat show display vessel, and was loaded with extra features, further enhanced by the owner after she was purchased. She will be sold to a discerning buyer who appreciates the value of a boat that is truly a work of art.ts

*** PRICE JUST REDUCED. —Was $409,000— Owner says sell now. ***


Halcyon carries staterooms fore and aft, a large salon and L-galley amidship, very spacious engine room, and large flybridge with seating to accommodate all your cruising guests. Her interior decor has been updated in classic tan and beige fabrics, to compliment the Grand Banks signature teak woods. Her exterior carries teak decks and rails, and canvas protection for all brightwork. The salon is entered from either port or starboard side decks. The wider body GB 42 features a great deal more cabin room than did her predecessor, very noticable when dining, or when in the engine room — without compromise to famous wide exterior decks. The large air conditioned salon sits just aft of an open L-galley, making her perfect for cruising and elegant entertaining. The salon features a drop-leaf teak yacht table that will accomodate 6 diners very comfortably. The table is surrounded by an L-settee to starboard, flanked by two Grand Banks teak chairs to port. Just forward of the L-settee is a teak bar with storage for liquor, glasses and dishes. The bar features fold-down top for service, and an ice maker. Aft, across from the L-settee return is her entertainment center with built-in AM/FM CD/changer beneath a TV/VCR. Forward of the entertainment center is a straight settee convertible to an extra berth with filler piece carried on-board. The lower helmstation is forward to starboard and offers easy access to electrical panels and essential gauges and controls. Opening side and aft windows are screened, and the windshield opens at its center for ventilation. A companionway leads aft through full height teak double doors to the master stateroom featuring dedicated shower to starboard, opposite an ensuite head with Vacuflush toilet. Located at the forward bulkhead are full size and 3/4 height hanging locker, each lighted, with louvered teak doors. Above is a fiddled shelf with TV. There is abundant storage surrounding and beneath the centerline queen berth, including a very large, shallow chart drawer. An opening hatch provides flow-through ventilation throughout the cabin and is protected by teak-framed screens, as an option to Halcyon’s dedicated master suite air conditioning. There are reading lamps port and starboard at the berth, large countertops, teak sole and fitted fabrics. Forward of the galley, through a combined door/hatchway is the guest cabin with full length V-berths, an ensuite head with curtained shower and Vacuflush head. This cabin features independent air conditioner, an overhead screened hatch, reading lamps at each berth, a full size hanging locker, and is wired to the ship’s TV system. Fitted designer covers are provided for the cushion topped berths. An interesting note is that when GB design the wide body they lowered the berths in this cabin a whopping eight inches for ease of entry and exit.


The Galley on Halcyon may very well be her finest hour. Decorated in corresponding teaks and wood finish she blends naturally into the ambience created by the salon. With an L-shaped layout that includes a buffet or breakfast bar, the host or hostess can remain part of the salon conversation while functionally seperated for meal preparation. Halcyon is equipped with a double sink featuring removable cutting-board tops, yacht-sized electric oven, 3 burner electric cooktop, and a microwave built into separate cabinetry above the counter. She carries holding plate refrigerator and top loading holding plate freezer with lower access door. With good planning Halcyon can store provisions for a month in the islands. Microwave and ice maker are inverter-powered; no need to start the genset for a snack. The galley is replete with cabinets, drawers and lockers adequate for all cookware, including a special drawer for pots and pans beneath the oven. As an added feature, Halcyon is factory prep’d for gas cooking option, should the owner wish to convert to a gas appliance. The forward companionway leading to V-berth can be closed with a hatch top, extending galley counterspace for serving or food preparation. A convenient garbage bin is concealed behind teak panel door to match other cabinetry aboard the yacht.


Fitting her all-weather cruising abilities, she features an electronics package that will satisfy every cruiser’s requirements, enhanced with convenience options at both helms.

Halcyon is fitted with electrical accessories necessary for cruising costal waters, with attention to convenience. She is configured in standard Grand Banks fashion, enhanced by inverter power to microwave, icemaker, TV antenna amplifier and all electrical outlets. The Onan Genset powers stove, oven, air conditioning and battery chargers for starting and inverter batteries. The generator is mounted inside an effective sound box, and eases maintenance chores with controls and gauges mounted at the genset. Difficult original connectors for lube oil have been upgraded, making oil change effortless.

Deck Hull

Halcyon’s flybridge and decks are outfitted with the popular options to enhance entertaining, safety and fun. At her main deck forward is an anchor platform rigged with CRQ (all chain rode) and Danforth (chain and rope rode). The power windlass has canvas cover. Immediately forward of the deckhouse is a deck locker with teak top, popular as seating close to the ever-present dolphins this yacht seems to attract no matter where she cruises. There is white textaline one-piece cover for her windshield. Halcyon also carries sun-blocking solid canvas for the windshield and all other windows and hatches. Her rails are teak with current varnish. Canvas covers are provided to extend the life of brightwork. Above the aft cabin Halcyon carries a center console 1996 ten ft Novurania RIB with 25 hp Yamaha outboard, in good working order, equipped with running lights, fuel gauge, electric bilge pump and gelcell starting battery. The dinghy is transferred to and from the deck using a 12v winch system built into the traditional Grand Banks mast and boom, with motor hidden beneath the L-settee at the flybridge. There is fresh water forward and aft to wash her off, and the aft deck includes hot and cold fresh water shower. Halcyon has a teak transom with canvas protection, and swim platform with ladder. Her very large storage lazarette is lighted, a necessity when retrieving or stowing items after dark. Halcyon’s flybridge is configured with forward and aft facing Grand Banks bench seating with tan cushions. There is a bonus storage compartment in each seat. Aft on the flybridge is the Grand Banks optional seating package including L-settee and adjustable teak table. The flybridge has a recent navy blue canvas bimini top to cover forward seating, with attachable four-sided enclosure — almost never used. There is a canvas cover for the wheel alone, or for the forward flybridge to include seating and electronics area. Electronics are attractively mounted within easy reach, along with engine control and warning signal panel (including 110v outlet for power tools or TV watching). There is abundant storage beneath all seats, and in a large storage space beneath her dash. This favored piloting station has most of the ship’s electronics, many of which hide protected in a hinged console behind sliding door at the centerline. The windscreen is protected by stainless rails. Radar and TV antenna are mounted on the mast along with spreader lights that can be aimed to illuminate whatever night task is at hand, be it fishing or rigging. Intercoastal piloting at night is achieved with searchlight directed by wireless remote, allowing the first mate or guest to participate as desired.

Halcyon is powered by twin Catepillar 3116 engines rated at 300 hp. These economical engines burn approximately 3 gallons per hour each at 9 knot cruise, and can lift the boat out of the water for a 14 — 15 knot run when running light ship, with tabs adjusted to hold her trim. The in-line six design is immensely popular due to the small engine size. There’s room enough for two between the engines, and space outboard of these twins is accessible without moving, or removing anything. Engines are synchronized with Glendenning synchronizer, and the engine room is complete with oil change pump plumbed to propulsion engines, gears, and genset for fast fluid change. A special tool locker has been fabricated by Grand Banks and placed into the engine room overhead for easy tool storage. The last oil and filter change occurred in summer, 2002, along with annual bottom painting. The onboard sanitation system consists of two vacuflush heads which use a conservative amount of fresh water, eliminating the salt water component of boat holding tank odor. Vacuflush units can be directed overboard, bypassing the holding tank when offshore. An electric tankwatch indicator system warns of the need for maintenance. Pressurized fresh water is available at exterior decks fore and aft, to galley sink, fore and aft cabin sinks and showers, engine room and vacuflush system. The icemaker has a separate supply passing through a readily available filter, mounted in the engine room. Air conditioning is achieved by three reverse cycle compressors with shared intake pump, rated 12,000 btu’s for salon, 8,000 for master stateroom aft, and 6,000 for the Vberth. Each has separate electronic control, and adjusts between heat and cooling as needed. The salon entertainment center radio and CD changer provides music to salon, forward and aft cabins, each with two speakers. The yacht is wired for dockside power connections fore and aft, telephone and cable TV fore and aft, and carries a TV signal from cable or onboard electronic antenna to entertainment center, forward and aft cabins, with signal source selector switch mounted just inside the engine room access door. Hot water is obtained from 12 gallon water heater using 110v power or heat from propulsion engines. As with most GB’s, systems are intended to be simple for safety’s sake. Steering has mechanical linkage, electrical panels are uncomplicated and well marked, there is a tiller arm in the lazarette to use in case of emergency. A substantial hand operated bilge pump is within easy reach at the lower helm, in case main electrical bilge pumps in the engine room or aft beneath the master stateroom sole should fail.
