42' Grand Banks 1995 RAMBLER


The Grand Banks 42 Classic essentially defined what has become a hugely successful category known as the classic trawler yacht. "RAMBLER" is hull no. 1316 of over 1,500 that were built beginning in the 1960's and uninterrupted over forty years through 2006. The yacht is built on the classic trawler layout with master cabin with en-suite head aft, salon, galley and helm amidships over the engine room and guest cabin with head forward. She offers lower helm station with Fly Bridge with helm station. She is built on a semi displacement hull which is easily driven for optimum economy and range yet capable of speeds in the upper teens when needed. She is built on a beefy hand laid solid Fiberglass hull with coring in the hull and superstructure where applicable. Grand Banks Singapore yard is known for top quality construction and engineering and perhaps the finest teak interior joinery available anywhere in the world.
"RAMBLER" is seriously for sale, she's had just two owners and is professionally maintained by one of New England's leading yards.
Recent "CAT" Engine Survey and Oil Samples available upon request.
