General Details

This "Classic" Grand Banks 42 has recently received her 2000 hr. Caterpillar Service, recent flybridge enclosure, and a full exterior wax job to name only a few of her improvements. The galley, to port, has the optional overhead storage cabinets which greatly enhances livability. The Nautical Structures Davit System easily launches the Novurania tender, powered by a 15HP Yamaha four stroke outboard. This is a Must See for the Grand Banks 42 "Classic" buyer who desires a Bow Thruster, and the Caterpillar 3208 engine package which will cruise easily at 12 knots with power to spare. Recent sea trial from the Keys to Delray Beach, FL was a "Turn Key" offshore passage with all engine functions performing to factory specifications.

Vixen has a custom upper helm sea, NEW green mesh window covers, NEW flybridge seating upholstery, teak rail covers, recent bimini, flybridge deck canvas, and teak table cover.

The owner has purchased an RV and is a motivated seller. Vixen is easy to inspect and very seriously for sale, offers encouraged.
