Grand Banks: 60 The new Grand Banks 60 incorporates the latest marine technologies, from leading-edge construction to well-proven and reliable propulsion and maneuvering systems. “The GB60 is taking Grand Banks in a whole new direction in terms of appearance, performance, and construction techniques,” said Grand Banks’ CEO Mark Richards. “You really have to take the boat for a ride to get the full experience. There’s just nothing else like it from a performance perspective.” To make the yacht strong, light and thus more efficient, the entire deck and cabin house are fully infused using the highest quality carbon fiber available — a method primarily seen on performance sailing craft providing for long life, strength, and reliability in punishing open water conditions. Depending upon the engine package selection, performance includes a top speed of 36 knots, a high-cruise speed of 27 knots, and a range of 2,500 nautical-miles at 10 knots. The GB 60 measures 65’4” overall, has a beam of 19’2”, and draws less than four-feet if equipped with the IPS pods. This means that Grand Banks is delivering a large, comfortable yacht with the interior volume that makes extended stays practical for owners and their guests, and the capability to explore waters less frequented by other 60-footers with deeper draft. With an abundance of seating throughout, family and friends can relax on the one-level deck — containing the main cabin, a salon, lower helm, and aft galley — and bathe in the sunlight provided by large electric windows. With three generous staterooms and two full-size heads, finished in Grand Banks’ hallmark handcraftsmanship, guests will enjoy the overnight accommodations usually reserved for owners.
