MV “Coho” is fully outfitted for coastal cruising and a comfortable live aboard. She retains the graceful lines and features of the renowned Grand Banks yachts, with durable and easier to maintain fiberglass hull and two reliable John Deere 6404 diesel engines.

We’ve enjoyed trouble free cruising from Puget Sound, through British Columbia’s Inside Passage, and Southeast Alaska, to Kodiak Island. Now it’s your turn.

We are currently in Valdez and cruising back toward SE Alaska/Juneau area.

You can reach us by replying to this ad and we'll respond when we have wifi access.

The Grand Banks Classic 42 has a spacious central main cabin serving as salon, galley, and interior steering station. All around windows provide nearly a 360 degree view. Two ensuite double cabins located downstairs fore and aft comfortably sleep 4. A flybridge with external helm and seating area is accessed via exterior ladders aft. The engine room is accessed through a door via the forward cabin or by lifting the salon floorboards.

544 gal fuel capacity. 250 gal water capacity. Approx 50 gal holding tank.

Upgraded windows and fuel tanks. Vacuflush sanitation system. 7 kw generator. AIS transceiver and Furuno radar new in 2022. 10’ Caribe RIB with 9.9 hp Tohatsu outboard and electric lifting crane. Full winter storage cover. Much more.

This was always a 3-year plan, and this being the 3rd year, we are offering Coho for sale. In many ways we’ll be sorry to lose her. With interior helm and all around views she’s been great in Alaska. Chugging at 1100 rpm (6.5 kt at 2.2 gal/hr) and playing the tides, Coho is surprisingly economical fuel-wise. For a 50 year old boat, she’s in quite good shape. She has been solid and reliable, performing admirably in our Pacific Northwest travels.

2024 trip log highlights:
• May 7 – launched in Homer on the 19 ft tide. Engines fired right up and we motored across Kachemak Bay to Seldovia to get organized.
• May 13 – a calm sunny forecast. Rounded Point Bede and Point Gore. 110 nm day with sightings of orcas, otters, tufted puffins, dolphins, bald eagles and mountain goats. Anchored in Surprise Bay, Nuka Bay West Arm
• May 14 – dinghied into Palisade Lagoon intending to hike to an abandoned mine. Four black bears grazing and lazing at the creekside trailhead. Change of plans!
• May 15 – motored to the face of Northwestern glacier. Humpback feeding inside the narrow pass over the glacial moraine made it challenging to leave!
• May 16 – Checked out Holgate and Aialik glaciers. Much more ice than last year. Loud cracks and groans from the glaciers and a few icefalls.
• May 18 – docked in Seward for a few days of access to wifi and groceries.
• May 25 – jumped on a nice weather window to stunning Fox Farm Bay in Prince William Sound
• May 29 – after cruising around Knight Island and Orca Bay we arrived in Cordova in time to witness the excitement of the commercial fleet preparing for a fishing opener.
• June 5 – enjoying the friendly town of Valdez
