PRELIMINARY LISTING: Thank you for your patience as additional details are added over the next few days.
The Grand Banks 42 Classic essentially defined what has become a hugely successful genre known as the classic trawler yacht. RAMBLER is Hull #1316 of over 1,500 that were built beginning in the 1960's and continuing, uninterrupted, for over 40 years through 2006. She's built on the classic trawler layout with master cabin and ensuite head aft, salon, galley, and helm above the engine room, and guest cabin with head forward. She offers a lower helm station and flybridge with upper helm station and is built on a semi-displacement hull which is easily driven for optimal economy and range, yet capable of speeds in the upper teens when needed. She is built on a beefy hand-laid fiberglass hull with coring in the hull and superstructure for additional strength. Grand Banks is known for its top quality craftsmanship, construction, and engineering and, perhaps, the finest teak interior joinery available anywhere in the world.
