"Dr. Nick" is a well cared for example of the Grand Banks 42 Europa. The Europa or "EU" design allows for easy boarding either the way of its generous side decks or from the transom. Famous for its large covered aft deck and one level living this is one of the most sought out boats on today's market. The aft deck is large, protected and able to comfortably accommodate a table and chairs. Beneath the aft deck is a good sized lazarette for storage as well as a separate mechanical room that houses items like the freshwater pump, hot water heater, battery charger, and sanitation treatment system outside of the engine room. A door from this area does provide secondary access to the engine room from the cockpit rather than under the salon sole when needed. Also found on the aft deck is the large molded fiberglass stairway with teak tread that leads to the flybridge. The stairs make for an easy ascent to the large flybridge with built in bench seating with storage below, a stainless steel based teak table with chairs and an extra dunnage box with cushion top. A bimini provides shade to the well laid out helm and helm seats and aft on the boat deck is a hinged mast and boom with electric winch to launch the Trinka tender. All flybridge cushions are done in a handsome navy fabric with attractive white piping and the bimini and dodger panels are done in a matching navy canvas.

The Grand Banks 42 Europa has been decades in the making. The original Ken Smith design has been amended and updated with the practical input of her owners. The experience gained since the laying of the first GB 42 keel in 1966 is reflected in each one commissioned today. Her practical layout, sturdy fiberglass construction, deep water design, and long range capability all add up to a complete cruising boat. The Grand Banks semidisplacement hull design, with a fine entry forward, hard chines aft, and a full keel has been proven on waters around the world. Single or twin diesel power will deliver economy at hull speed and provide higher cruising speeds when larger than the standard engines are chosen. Many power options are available. The exterior of the hull and deckhouse on the GB 42 is smooth gelcoated fiberglass. Teak decking is laid over the fiberglass on the main deck and flybridge. The bulwarks surrounding the wide main deck are capped with a sturdy teak safety rail providing safe movement from bow to stern for those on board. The Grand Banks 42: In production since the 60s, her hull was redesigned in the early 90s giving the proven Grand Banks semi-displacement hull a longer waterline and an increased beam. Ideal for a couple with children or guests, she cruises economically at 9 knots, yet 17 knots is typical with optional engines. The Classic offers two staterooms, separated by the main saloon and galley. A variety of layouts are available including an aft cabin with an island double bed. The Europa's main saloon opens to a protected cockpit for expanded, one-level living. Two forward staterooms are standard.
