Yacht price :



OUT N ABOUT is one of the last Grand Banks 42 Europa's built,delivered in 2005. Her sole owner is a knowlegdable and experienced yachtsman who has both operated and cared for her with a "proper yachting attitude" - in other words - no shortcuts, perfect professional boatyard maintenance, inside heated storage, etc. Twin Yanmar 460's (with 1200 hours) provide a fast cruise at 18 knots, and a top speed of 22 knots. A highly regarded design, this late model build is from the peak of perfection in these boats, and OUT N ABOUT shows it. With like-new condition inside and out, a spiffy engine room, and everything "just right", you will not be disappointed when you come for an inspection.

Manufacturer Provided Description

Cocktails at sunset, family gatherings, or cruising adventures with friends. The Grand Banks 42 Europa is a natural when it comes to hosting gatherings of all sizes. In addition to its generous 42-foot length, the Europa's roof line extends over the side decks. As a result, owners enjoy additional protected space from sun and rain; a big plus for those who plan on cruising in the tropics. Add a spacious salon that opens into the protected cockpit area, a generously proportioned fiberglass stairway for easy access to the bridge, and convenient dinghy storage and you begin to see why this model is known for its welcoming nature. Below, the theme continues. One Europa interior configuration provides for two private staterooms and a large head with separate stall shower. An alternative two-room stateroom and two-head layout is also available. In either case, the luxurious owner's suite is forward (your choice of double-size island bed or twin V-berths). A large opening hatch ensures excellent ventilation, especially at anchor. The guest stateroom comes with either a double berth or two single berths. Of course, the 42 Europa comes with all the trademark touches: liberal use of burnished Burmese teak both inside and out, superior performance and stability and best-in-class dependability.


OUT N ABOUT is one of the last 42 Europa's produced, and has had above average care by one of New England's best boatyards,  She was smartly optioned and equipped by her experienced yachtsman owner who had the boat built for use by him and his wife.  This fine Europa shows much better than most boats her age, and is ready to be passed on to a new owner who can step aboard and start cruising immediately with no work required.
