The Grand Banks 42 has timeless lines and a strong reputation, a boat designed for people who wish to enjoy cruising in comfort and style. Built in 1998, ‘Lazaway’ is powered by Twin Caterpillar 3116 350hp engines on shaft drives. The boat favours a very spacious interior saloon and galley, and externally a large flybridge and aft deck. The private Owners double cabin aft is separated from the two twin guests cabins forward. The specification includes circa £30K of recently installed Raymarine electronics, bow & stern thrusters, generator, air-conditioning, davits, tender and much more.
