A great opportunity for the right person lies on Mystic River, CT; a 1969 mahogany planked Grand Banks Classic aft cabin fly bridge trawler with twin Ford Lehman diesels. This is a rare opportunity to buy into a classic wood vessel at a great price.
There is no other boat that has attracted such a loyal following of conscientious boaters than the Classic Grand Banks Fly Bridge Trawler. Her distinctive good looks, remarkable workmanship, and ageless design make this boat stand out from all the other trawler yachts. Her timeless good looks and comfortable accommodations make this yacht stand out amongst a harbor full of today’s plastic wonders.
Katharine is wood, Philippines Mahogany on Yacal frames and bronze fastened. No fiberglass hull slap at anchor during the night, just the kindly soft groans and the security of a solid planked hull that make wood boats so dear. Built by the true artisans of American Marine in Hong Kong in 1969, this boat has all of the classic details that are missed by the modern trawler yachts today. The beautiful bright work transom and fine Teak side rails and trim accent her ruggedly beautiful profile. The aft cabin and spacious cockpit give easy access to the comfortable flying bridge for those of us who dread those daunting ladders to the bridge. Wide decks and proper height rails make for easy and safe egress to the foredeck. Solid teak planked decks over plywood decks with bronze fittings are the height of old world nautical beauty. Even launching a hard dingy from the Sitka spruce mast and boom is the essence of old time yachtsmanship.
Below, the three level cabins make for a surprising light and airy main saloon with big opening windows and a starboard side door for cross ventilation. The lower helm station is fully functional and comfortable for poor weather sailing. The “up” galley to port boasts an enormous refrigerator and a full size two burner propane range. Built in cupboards and drawers give plenty of storage while the starboard ell seating around the adjustable and folding table opposite the port side bench seat give seating for six or more. The original teak cabinetry and parquet floors highlight the traditional comfort of this big trawler living area.
Forward and down three steps are the forward cabin with traditional vee berths and attached head with sink. Again teak built in cupboards and lockers highlight the charm of trawler living. An overhead hatch gives good ventilation at anchor or underway.
Aft, and down three steps, is the aft owner’s cabin, again with teak built in cupboards, lockers and drawers. To starboard is a double bunk while to port is a single berth. The large adjoining head is comfortable and sports a head, sink, and hot and cold shower. This is a very comfortable cabin on a vessel renowned for being comfortable.
Beneath convenient hatches in the main salon are two Ford Lehman diesels and a typical marine engine room with full access to tanks, batteries, pumps and compressors.
