General Details

"Promises" is an impeccable example of one of the most highly regarded cruising yachts ever made.  She is hull #1461 of a grand total of 1,560 Grand Banks' 42s made since production first began in 1965.  Kept predominantly on the brackish waters of the Chesapeake Bay her current owners purchased "Promises" from us back in 2007.  They have maintained the boat with an open checkbook, have full records and she is ready for her next owner to get right on board and enjoy!

Powered by the twin 375hp CAT 3208's, "Promises" benefits from the most preferred engine package for those seeking reliability, economy, and the flexibility to actual pick up and run if weather or scheduling dictate the need.  At 34,900lbs she cruises quite efficiently and comfortably between 8 and 12 knots and at wide open throttle she will see speeds reaching 18 knots.

"Promises" has seen a numerous updates and additions to her inventory throughout her lifetime and she is well equipped with a full list of cruising, comfort, and safety features.   She is a pleasure to show and is currently in indoor heated winter storage.  Within 20 minutes of BWI Airport and convenient to Baltimore, Washington, and Annapolis, "Promises" is not to be missed by any serious GB buyer!

Engine Room & Mechanical
"Promises" benefits from an owner who firmly believes in fixing things prior to failure and is willing to spend the money to keep the mechanicals in top shape.  In February of 2011 he had Haven Harbour (a GB authorized service center) replace the dripless shaft seals as part of the boat's preventitive maintenance.  At the time the shafts were removed and the cutlass bearings all renewed as well as the propellers being tuned.  He also just replaced five AGM 8-D batteries in September of 2012 and had the altenator remanufactured.   These are just a few of the examples of outstanding care and good preventitive maintenance that "Promises" receives!

Vessel Walkthrough
Grand Banks 42 layout: guest cabin forward with V-berth and en-suite head with shower.  The salon offers a straight line galley forward to port, lower helm opposite to starboard.  Aft of helm is dry bar with ice maker, a large L-settee with corner table top/storage and the classic teak GB yacht table.  Opposite the salon table, on the port side, is a 2-person settee with corner built-in freezer.  The aft cabin features a centerline island queen berth.  The head is a very functional “split-head” in that the shower stall is on starboard with head and sink to port.
