GRAND BANKS 60

The GB60 is an exciting addition to the Grand Banks line. Several custom layouts available, cruising speeds from 25-30 knots with fantastic fuel economy and very shallow draft. Contact Steve today for all the details on this next generation of Grand Banks Yachts. Steve sold and just delivered Hull #02 and just sold Hull #05 at the Newport International Boat Show this past September, 2017.

This new model had its first USA debut at the Newport International Boat Show in September, 2017 and it was fantastic! We had lines down the dock to see her and received lots of positive feedback.

Steve is very excited for the future of this model. This is a true turning point for Grand Banks, as the company's 60th Anniversary was this past year. This all-new design offers a glimpse of the future, because as the first of a "new generation" of Grand Banks, it marries advanced marine technology with Grand Banks traditional styling and craftsmanship. It is the first model that Mark Richards has fully designed since he took over Grand Banks as CEO about three years ago. He incorporated the warped hull, a design he has been using on the Palm Beach Motor Yachts for the past 22 years. This innovation, along with many other features and benefits, has made this yacht revolutionary.

Now, not only does Grand Banks have a more modern, yet still classic traditional design it also has incredible performance which is honestly draw dropping! She is a MUST SEE MUST RIDE boat! 

There have been several great articles written about the all new 2018 model GB 60. Links to them can be found below.

Down below is a storage utility room (photo on right) with two additional fridge and freezer drawers.

The VIP forward stateroom has a low queen island berth with a mirror on the bulkhead. The day head is just before the VIP stateroom on port side, just forward of the utility room and has a full stall shower as well.

The Master stateroom is midship port side with ensuite head and stall shower.

The aft galley layout with second helm seat gives the space below to make the walk down / in closet as you can see below.

The forward galley layout takes away the head room for the walk down closet but allows for a full wall of hanging closet space, as you can see in the photo to the below.

Both layouts are fantastic and provide very generous storage for all live aboard essentials! 

One of the great things about building a new yacht is how having the opportuinity to choose what layout work best for you, after all it is all about how you and your family and friends will use the space!
