COMMENTS: SOGGY DOLLAR is a 1997 42’ Grand Banks Europa in very good condition. She is powered with the 375 hp Cat 3208TA diesels, with only 1670 hours of use. SOGGY DOLLAR has been lightly chartered for the last two seasons, and is also maintained properly by one of Maine’s top boatyards, Front Street Shipyard. Additional highlights include her very attractive interior with her navy blue Ultrasuede fabrics, her preferred two head layout with stall shower, and her swivel barrel chairs and exquisite hi-lo teak dining table in the main salon.
Please call us for your inspection of one of the Grand Banks most popular models. The 42’ Europa is not too large for a couple to handle, and yet is large enough to have guests aboard in comfort and privacy with their own head and stateroom. Please come and inspect this fine 42’ Europa. Thank you for your interest.
