DESCRIPTION

Meet Vaquita, a tried-and-true 42’ Grand Banks Classic, ready to take you on your next adventure in the Pacific Northwest. Finely suited for two cruising couples, Vaquita’s aft stateroom and forward v-berth, each with their own shower and head, provide comfortable quarters at the end of a full day on the water.

As you board through the port side door, you are greeted by a warm and welcoming salon featuring a large L-shaped settee with a drop-leaf table and twin dining chairs. Another settee with an entertainment console provides additional seating. Vaquita’s well-equipped galley includes a fridge, freezer, stove/oven, microwave, and plenty of storage.

Equipped with an Onan 8kw generator, Magnum 2800w inverter/charger, and Spectra watermaker among many other great features, Vaquita is ideal for cruising the San Juans or heading to Desolation Sound and/or Princess Louisa Inlet. Once at anchor, go explore in the Bullfrog tender with 9.9 hp Honda outboard.

Vaquita is a twin screw, powered by 210hp Cummins diesel engines. With 600 gal (2,271 liters) of fuel and recommended cruising speed of 9 knots, expect a max range of ~1,000 nautical miles (1,852 km).
