The GB46 evolved from one of the most popular Trawlers ever built, the Grand Banks 42. As the 46 is bigger, she's also faster and even more comfortable than her little sisters. The boat was first introduced in the current format in approximately 1990 and has been highly regarded ever since. Above are 4 Grand Banks 46 Trawlers we currently have listed. Compare them against any other boats you may have looked at or learn more about the Grand Banks 46 at our company website -

Yacht Sales

In real estate it's location, location, location. In the world of pre-owned Grand Banks and Eastbays we find it's a function of condition, condition, condition. Actually price enters the equation too - the boat in the best condition, at the best price is the one which sells first.

Our Mid-Atlantic location draws customers from our immediate region, but additionally vessels from the North, South and Gulf Coast as well. The boat's condition is preserved and deterioration from snow, sleet, acid rain, and freezing is eliminated.

Consistent periods out of the water and elements virtually eliminate blister issues. We've yet to see a blisters issue with an OYA Brokerage vessel.

With OYA's Brokerage vessels' typical strong all around condition, appropriate market pricing and the number of yachts in the same location, Buyers are drawn to the facilty. The result is a winning equation for our Buyers and Sellers.

Most of our Brokerage boats are stored inside and out of the weather. They're easily seen regardless of the weather - simply drive on in! The photo is of three Grand Banks just inside the most recent building (imaginatively) called "the big building." That, as it is simply huge. It's impossible to convey its size with a small photograph. For example, the boats at the left are a Grand Banks 46 on the left, followed by two GB 42s. The three of them together might occupy maybe 10% of the buildings floor space. We also have brokerage boats in our slips in Oxford (a few miles away) which are ready to sea trial on a moment's notice for interested buyers.

32' Grand Banks Sedan
1980 US$ 125,000

This is the quintessential crusing boat for a couple. The current owners have made giant strides in "modernizing" the boat by approaching a lower maintenance boat. The teak handrails and grab rails have all been replaced by stainless railing. The teak decks were removed and replaced with non-skid Awlgrip. Much of the small nusiance trim has been replaced with King Starboard to eliminate varnish work. The salon area has also had new veneer installed making it look like a much newer boat. If you are looking for fuel economy she has the lean Ford Lehman 120 as a power plant and Northern Lights generator. You better move fast on this one — it won't last long.
