Overview - walkthrough

Current owner has had this updated Grand Banks for a little over 7 years and a change of boating style has resulted in her coming to market.  Both current and previous owner have been great stewards of this vessel and the next owner will continue to benefit from many improvements.

Entry to the cabin is through either port or starboard side doors.  The starboard side door is adjoining to the lower helm which is to the forward end of the deckhouse, port door is more mid-ships entering the Salon area which is aft of the L-shape galley which is located up and forward on the portside.  Teak parquet flooring in nicely finished with a center rectangular area rug and a teak fold up hi-low dining table in the center of the salon area.  Aft to portside is a large, comfortable, L-shaped settee lounge with Black ultra-leather custom cushions.  Across from the settee to the aft starboard portside of the salon is a custom teak wall cabinet housing a newer, 32-inch, flat-panel TV with a Grand Banks teak armchair just below, upholstered in the matching black ultra-leather.  There are also 3 high-quality teak folding chairs that can be used here or elsewhere around the boat.  Between the settee and the forward helm on the starboard side is a teak cabinet with refrigerator/icemaker and drawer storage.  Throughout the interior there is furniture quality teak cabinetry, teak parquet sole, Hunter-Douglas shades in the salon and aft cabin, beveled edge mirrors and low voltage accent lighting, as well as LED lighting used wherever practical.  There are also TVs in both staterooms as well as a daylight/outdoor TV which is mounted on the flybridge.

Moving aft down steps to the Master stateroom which has a walk-around queen berth, private head, shower stall, loads of drawer/closet storage, a small desk/dresser to the aft portside corner, and an access door that opens to the cockpit.  

The forward one-third of this boat has been somewhat customized for optimum use for a cruising couple or liveaboard.  The steps going down to the forward cabin area can be lifted allowing access door to the engine compartment.  Next to the stairs is a large storage compartment with room for spare parts/tools.  Next forward on the starboard side is a large pantry with multiple storage cabinets and a freezer as well as a washer/dryer combo unit.  One cabinet here has all the builder manuals and equipment guides in binders.  This pantry area storage can thoroughly supplement the galley if needed for extended trips or stays aboard.  Further forward on the starboard side is the guest/day head which has a separate shower stall and there is a door between the pantry and the guest head which allows privacy for guests.  Guest cabin has a large V-berth which has a filler to make the berth full.  There is a hanging locker and drawer storage.
