General Details

"Passageway" is a beautiful example of one of the most popular boats of all time, the Grand Banks 42 Classic. The 42 GB has long defined what many people think of when the term "trawler" is used and with good reason.  These boats are proven cruising vessels with timeless style, safe and efficient design, comfortable and roomy layout, and top quality construction. 

"Passageway" has seen exemplary care by a knowledgeable owner and it shows inside and out.  The gelcoat and brightwork shine, the interior is fresh and inviting and there have been numerous updates throughout.

With her 3116 CATs, "Passageway" can cruise an ultra efficient 8.4 knots @ 1250rpm while only burning 3.5 Gallons Per Hour!  She also has the versatility to get up an move if needed with a top speed of over 18 knots!

* Just completed the 2000 hour service on the boat June 2013.  Boat has been fully waxed, varnish redone in October of 2013 and is turnkey ready for her next adventure!*


Convenient to see in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, just minutes off I-95 and less than 30 minutes from Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI)!
