Manufacturer Provided Description
Few boats today are so highly regarded as the Grand Banks 49 Classic. Her reputation for seaworthiness and dependability is the result of her proven design, rugged construction, and no compromise approach to quality. The GB49 Classic provides the comfort and space of a second home. Two different basic layouts and a number of options and custom touches are available.
The galley up layout provides an additional stateroom forward with twin berths. Some owners have this extra stateroom designed as a den or seaside office. The GB49 Classic is all Grand Banks, featuring forward and aft staterooms, dinghy storage, and a flybridge that provides commanding views. The real beauty of the GB49 Classic is her intelligent approach to cruising. Wide walk-around side decks, a heavy-duty anchoring system, convenient dinghy storage and launching, well designed storage compartments, and a sturdy swim platform all add up to cruising comfort and safety.
Overall, the size and design of the GB49 is ideal for the captain who wants to run his own ship with only occasional crew. Her 60,000 lb displacement provides big boat performance and comfort, and her sensible design makes it possible for a couple to go off on their own for a voyage of a lifetime. Serious cruisers throughout the world have chosen the GB49 to take them to faraway shores in comfort and style. With her generous displacement, there is enough stowage capacity for months of supplies and room to carry a variety of cruising gear. Her stand-up engine room is complete with a workbench area. At 9 knots, her cruising range exceeds 1,200 nautical miles. Based on the renowned Grand Banks semidisplacement hull design, the GB49 is most economical comfortably cruising at its hull speed of 10 knots.
For many owners, the spacious engine room with 6.5 feet of headroom and full hull width is one of the most attractive areas of the GB49. Here, routine maintenance and mechanical inspections are a pleasure to perform. Gone are the days of sore backs and hunching over hot engines. There is plenty of room to easily access all equipment including engines, generator, air conditioning, refrigeration units, through hulls, fuel filters, and more.
A Grand Banks 49 was chosen by Sid Stapleton, editor of Motorboating & Sailing and author of The Power Book Bible, to take him on the voyage of a lifetime. His exciting adventure from Maine to Alaska on America's Odyssey, was chronicled in a series of magazine articles which are available upon request. Confidently handling 25 foot seas off Venezuela or providing the comforts of home in remote anchorages of Alaska, the GB49 has again proven to a most capable and dependable cruiser.
