The Grand Banks 52 Europa combines the best of all cruising worlds: timeless design, technological innovation, expansive interior space. In other words, a yacht that's part long-term evolution and equal part innovation. In terms of beauty, burnished teak components continue to represent quality craftsmanship. In terms of functionally, the Grand Banks' reputation for consistently delivering dependable, stable boats is second to none. One of the most distinctive design features of the 52 Europa is the enclosed, forward pilothouse complete with a central captain's chair and a slide-away privacy bulkhead. Of course, there's also the trademark Grand Banks golden teak wheel. Opening doors on both sides of the pilothouse provide for ventilation and easy access forward. Guests are treated to the comfort of two-seater, forward facing settee. Thanks to its covered side and aft decks (and the expansive main salon that opens onto that protected aft deck), the 52 Europa is able to support several interior configurations. As always, the main salon is an inviting, easy-to-customize open space that makes liberal use of the traditional teak aesthetic. Below deck, there are several configuration options, all of which ultimately provide for three to four private staterooms. One option calls for one double and one twin guest cabin forward with the owner's cabin aft. Another option dedicates the entire aft area to a large master cabin. In this case, the shower and the head compartments are separate; a dressing table and a desk are also featured elements.
