1990 Grand Banks 42 Classic

location icon Chesapeake, United States
Year 1990
Length 42 ft / 12.80 m

 The Grand Banks 42 is, without question, the most popular trawler ever built with over 1500 out there cruising.  We know SHANGR-LA well and have sold her twice over the years.  Current owners have been excellent stewards and thoroughly enjoyed her over the last 6 years.  They recently bought a home and moved ashore.  She is new to the market and easy to see in our under cover, fresh water showrooms at Atlantic Yacht Basin on the Intracoastal Waterway just 12 miles south of Norfolk, VA.

Broker's Comments

We know SHANGRI-LA well, and have sold her to the current owners, who did the Loop in grand style. She has been well maintained by her knowledgeable owners and her engines have been flawless. This vessel has a Jones Act Waiver which conveys- a foreign built vessel licensed for charter use.  She has never been chartered, but was a boat and breakfast several years ago.  Seller's have moved ashore and she is now seriously for sale.  NICE!
