Owners Comments:

The "Sarah Frances" has been yard maintained since 2007 since purchased by present owner, principle of family's boatyard.  She has been stored inside each winter for the past 5 years.  

We purchased this GB 46 for a family cruiser and summer home.  We purchased our first Grand Banks 36 woodie back in 1997 and loved the way she handled the open waters.  We called her our little ship, but we quickly outgrew her modest accommodations.  We purchased a 42’ Grand Banks in 2002 in southern Florida and brought her north.  We cruised the Maine coast two different years in August and spent much of the next 5 summers on board until our kids grew some more.  The 46' Grand Banks Classic was the perfect fit for us with our son and daughter in their own cabin and us in the spacious aft cabin stateroom.  The separation between the forward and aft cabins is perfect.  We have compared our boat to the Fleming 52 and the Selene trawlers and decided that the GB 46 quality, machinery and accommodations were the best available. We especially love having the galley up in the main salon with the best views of the harbor while preparing meals and drinks.  Plus the 3rd. side stateroom on the port side with queen berth is a great guest cabin and has served well for our son’s private stateroom.  Overall, we feel the Grand Banks 46 offers the most value and comfort in this size range, even when compared to custom cruisers.  When you add the performance of the Naiad stabilizer system, fuel economy, wide (safe) decks, large flybridge, creature comforts for 6 adults and classic looks, there really is not another boat on the water that is truly comparable.
