Grand Banks

42 Classic

$239,900 CAD

Vancouver, BC

Osprey  is a stunning example of this legendary build having spent most of its life protected in a boathouse, and out of the elements. This shows as soon as you enter the boathouse with gleaming gelcoat and outstanding brightwork. The window frames and teak planking, are far above average for a Grand Banks of this vintage. And her teak interior with hand rubbed satin varnish, is still as beautiful as ever.  January 2021 surveyor’s comment: This vessel is probably the best example I have encountered, even when compared to a much newer vessel... She also presents to a very high standard cosmetically and is a comfortable sound pleasure craft with considerable appeal.

Elements of Osprey

The Grand Banks 42 Classic's timeless lines and strong reputation, demonstrated by resale value, makes it a smart investment in cruising. 

Osprey is an elegant yacht, hand-built in the traditional method by skilled craftsmen balancing rugged construction with fine finishing. The seaworthy hull form is proven, and as one gains experience on board, the feeling is built up; one of respect and security.

This design set the standard for four decades: It is intelligent, well-proportioned, and provides a fine sense of comfort, style and good sense. 

In production from 1966 to 2005, with over 1,550 hulls built, the Grand Banks 42 remains the world’s most successful production yacht ever produced. The 42 Classic is a model often copied, but never duplicated. It is a magnificent example of how Grand Banks Yachts blends thoughtful design, safe passage making, comfortable living, and exquisite craftsmanship. 

Relax in comfortable spaces inside, with full views of the harbour when the weather is cool or when privacy is desired. Or in the open areas of the flybridge on warm days at cruise or at anchor. 

There are signature GB pieces throughout Osprey, including the teak steering wheels, teak bar, the classic and functional yacht table, teak handrails, and teak parquet floors.

Osprey reflects the constant care and attention which has been lavished upon her through out her ownership.

January 2021 surveyor’s comment:

This vessel is probably the best example I have encountered, even when compared to a much newer vessel. There is clear evidence of upgrading and maintenance throughout the vessel. She also presents to a very high standard cosmetically and is a comfortable sound pleasure craft with considerable appeal.

The current owners are experienced cruisers, and have long admired and aspired to owning a Grand Banks. After purchasing Osprey in January 2021, and enjoying her for the 2021 season, they realised that given their busy work schedules, a GB is not quite the right boat for them at this time. They are in the market for a faster cruiser until their schedules allow for more time away from work, and more leisurely cruising better suited to a GB.

Throughout Osprey

Osprey is the standard GB 42 CL tri-cabin layout provides a versatile separation of spaces between owners and guests; with the owners' cabin aft, the guest cabin forward, each with private heads and showers, and the living space between with salon, galley and lower helm.

This classic layout is well-suited for a cruising couple, with ample room for guests. a bright open salon, a functional galley, a lower helm station to starboard, and a flybridge accessed via the port side decks.

Boarding port or starboard is an easy step up with foot holds and handles in just the right places. And from the stern, the wide swim platform, perfectly situated to get in and out of the tender, has teak steps up to the afterdeck. 

Enter the salon though side doors from the port or starboard side decks. The helm is forward to starboard, the bar behind that, the galley to port, the guest cabin forward, and the owners' cabin aft. 

There is liberal use of hand-selected teak throughout the interior, hand-built by some of the best craftsmen in the business. The finish is a soft, satin varnish. 

There is Webasto forced air central heat throughout the vessel.

Deck

Grand Banks are designed with active boating in mind. These yachts have wide walk-around decks, with tall railings and a beefy gunnel, to ensure safety and confidence while moving around the boat, even during rough weather. 

For effortless boarding and line handling, there are gate openings port, starboard and aft. As noted, there are port and starboard doors from the side decks to the salon and lower helm, as well as a door from the master stateroom to the after deck. Movement throughout is unencumbered and flowing. 

The teak clad decks provide a superior nonskid surface, and Osprey's are in excellent order. 

All the teak trim, often neglected, is also in excellent condition, and all exterior brightwork has been sanded to bare wood, sealed, and built up with numerous fresh coats of varnish. Windows and frames are also in excellent condition and show no signs of moisture ingress or leaking.

Electrical Systems

AC and DC systems service the vessel through circuit breaker panels, which are well-organised and properly labelled. Batteries are charged via the alternators while underway, or by the genset or shore power as needed. 

Osprey is considered a "quiet boat" in that the genset is not needed for powering a cabin heat supply or for operating the propane stove and oven. The genset is ready as needed for higher power loads or battery charging when away from shorepower. Lighter AC loads are taken care of by the Trace inverter.
