The 36 GB is a living legend.
Known for seaworthiness and a comfortable ride, the 36 Grand Banks Classic features wide side decks and aft stateroom.
An all round seaworthy performer, the 36 GB is a comfortable cruising yacht. A long keel, 26,000 lb displacement, hard chine, and a deep forefoot hull provide stability and seaworthiness. High bulwarks with sturdy teak handrails, the mastery of beautifully carved teak scrolls, anchor platform with anchor roller and bow pulpit, teak swim platform, transom boarding steps and wide side decks, port, starboard and stern boarding gates are standard features.
The fiberglass 36 GB is also luxurious. Teak joinery work by old-world hand craftsmen gives a practical beauty above and below decks. The cabin soles are teak parquet (recently refurbished) throughout. The main decks and flybridge are teak planked. Extensive locker and drawer space are made out of golden Burmese teak. The upholstery and drapes are selected to complement the warm look of the surrounding teak.
The salon has been upgraded and is a spacious living area complete with solid teak high / low yacht table, L-shaped settee and the helm station. Accessibility to the exterior and flybridge from the helm is made easier with the starboard door. Instrumentation including an autopilot, and the AC and DC panels, are neatly recessed into the helm station. Windows all round provide full fore and aft visibility.
The well equipped galley comes with hot and cold pressurized water system. The four burner stove and oven, Corian counter top, stainless steel sink, dish locker and large refrigerator are all conveniently located.
The master stateroom aft has a double berth at starboard and a single berth at port with generous drawer space below. The adjoining en suite is spacious with full headroom and has a Corian counter top vanity. The companionway in the aft stateroom leads to the aft deck. A neatly recessed stowaway teak ladder provides access to the aft deck via twin opening doors. The forward stateroom has a v-berth with insert providing a large double bed. It also has a hanging locker and plenty of storage space. Its adjoining head compartment has full headroom, a large mirror, shower and cultured marble built in sink and sink counter top.
The flybridge offers a helm station with colour plotter, venturi windscreen and bimini top. The long and wide flybridge has seating for six adults. Under the seats are stowage compartments as well as additional stowage beneath the console.
