Patriot is a prime example of what GB can do for the experienced sailor. With 600 gallons of fuel in her epoxy coated steel tanks and the single, 420 hp CAT engine, this Grand Banks 42 Classic offers economy, safety, low noise, high range, and increased stability. The lower maintenance costs, and extended range that this spec of hull & engine provides brings forth a simplified cruising experience to the user and gives easier access to all machinery and equipment.
Patriot was originally owned by a master in the art of big ships, as well as the systems found on big ships. Dubbed by Soundings Magazine as the "Trawler made for hanging on the hook", Patriot has well developed systems for comfortable use away from the marina.
The common sense approach by her owners and Grand Banks has proven to be successful during the past 15 years, shown by her extensive upgrades and excellent condition.
June 2017 grades: Refit of the electrical system to include new Caterpillar starter and alternator. 4 non-maintenance 8D batteries, new inverter/charger, and 4 new motor mounts.
Fuel Usage-At 1825 rpm, 8.8 knots, Patriot cruises at her optimal fuel usage.
We invite you to come and see her for yourself. If interested, please contact John Shannahan.

This Grand Banks 42 Classic is number 1504 out of 1555 constructed. This adds up to 50 years of success. Ken Smith's design has been amended and updated with the practical input gained by each owner. Thus experiences gained since the laying of the first GB 42 keel in 1966 are reflected in each GB 42 in commission today. Her practical layout, sturdy fiberglass construction, deep water design, and long range capability all add up to the complete cruising boat. The Grand Banks semi-displacement hull design, with a fine entry forward, hard chines aft, optional trim tabs, and a full keel has proven itself on choppy waters around the world. Fisherman and sailers alike know that single diesel power delivers the best economy. The flybridge is easily accessible from the main deck. It is a multipurpose upper deck providing the flybridge helm station with fwd seating, storage lockers, and a significant lounge area aft. GB has supplied the optional fixed deck furniture. The entire flybridge is covered overhead by a bimini top with an aft extension. The end result is a great deck with excellent 360-degree visibility as well as a lounge/dining setup with room to mount a large, gas powered grill. The bridge console has full instrumentation with handy storage for large items below. The steering wheel is handcrafted teak. The standard electric windlass, mounted on a dual roller anchor platform is protected by a stainless rail to make the anchoring process as simple as possible. The location of the shore power inlets, at the bow and stern, makes power connections possible without boat position being a problem. The foredeck storage locker is great for lines and the large lazarette aft provides convenient storage for a variety of cruising gear. The engine room in this GB 42 Classic is special. With working space outboard of the engine there is plenty of installation space for essential gear. The standard 9-KW generator comes with a sound shield, and underwater exhaust, for quiet operation. The exterior of the hull and deckhouse on this GB 42 is solid fiberglass with smooth gel coat. The bulwarks surrounding the wide main deck are capped with a sturdy stainless safety rail providing safe movement from bow to stern for those on board. In production since the 60s, her hull was modified in the early 90s giving the proven Grand Banks semi-displacement hull a longer waterline and an increased beam. Patriot burns 6 gallons of diesel fuel per hour at 1800 rpm. Ideal for a family with children and guests, she cruises economically at 10 mph.
