The Grand Banks 42 Europa 'LOTUS,' from 1991, is a classic and timeless motor yacht that has remained one of the most coveted models over the years. This specific model is equipped with two reliable 135 hp Ford Sabre engines, providing sufficient power for cruising and long-distance voyages. The synchronized motor system ensures smooth and efficient operation, allowing the two engines to collaborate seamlessly for enhanced performance.

The design of the 42 Europa emphasizes comfort and practicality, with a spacious and well-equipped interior. The layout of the yacht includes a covered cockpit connected by two sliding doors to the comfortable and spacious salon. Further forward is a fully equipped galley and well-designed sleeping accommodations for a comfortable onboard living experience.

Known for its sturdy construction and enduring appeal, the Grand Banks 42 Europa is a popular choice among Grand Banks enthusiasts. The 'LOTUS' is an exceptional yacht for undertaking long journeys or navigation on coastal waters, thanks to specific equipment on board such as an EPIRB, floating anchor, and nightlights in the helm cabin.

The 'LOTUS' has proven her capability in long journeys between Spain, Gibraltar, Tunisia, and back to her home port in Mallorca. The experienced current owner (Mariteam Captain) has brought her back to the Netherlands and has updated her for journeys between Brittany and Norway.
