Romantic in the classic maritime sense, the Grand Banks 46 Europa's spacious deck house opens aft to a shaded cockpit, a design feature both functional and beautiful. Built on the same hull-form as the popular 46 Classic, the Europa offers an additional design distinction that further encourages indoor/outdoor activity: a flybridge that extends over the side decks. The result is an attractive, safe-from-the-weather steering and navigational station. At anchor or at dockside, a teak-crafted door slides open, providing a direct connection from the salon to the roomy, aft cockpit space. Sleeping arrangements are equally attractive. Those who plan to cruise with extra guests aboard often choose the three-cabin, two-head layout. Some also choose to construct a special cabin for crew or children in the spacious storage area under the cockpit. If you happen to be in the market for extra space, beauty and dependability, this is without a doubt the yacht for you.
