Manufacturer Provided Description
An all round seaworthy performer, the Grand Banks 36 Classic is capable of real deep water cruising. Long keel, 26,000 lb displacement, hard chine, and a deep forefoot hull provide stability and seaworthiness. The aft house superstructure incorporates a seat box which adds extra livable space inside the aft cabin. High bulwarks with sturdy teak handrails, the mastery of beautifully carved teak scrolls, stainless steel stanchions and grabrails on the house sides, anchor platform with anchor roller and bow pulpit, teak swim platform, transom boarding steps, wide side decks, port, starboard and stern boarding gates are some of the features standard on the Grand Banks 36. The flybridge offers a duplicate helmsman station with full instrumentation, venturi windscreen, and extra stowage beneath the console. An enclosed electronics locker next to the flybridge helm provides space to house essential electronics equipment. The long and wide flybridge has seating for six adults. Under the seats are teak slatted watertight stowage compartments. The fiberglass Grand Banks 36 is also luxurious. Teak joinery work by old-world hand craftsmen gives a practical beauty above and below decks. The cabin soles are teak parquet throughout. The main decks and flybridge are teak planked. Extensive locker and drawer space are made out of golden Burmese teak. The upholstery and drapes are selected to complement the warm look of the surrounding teak. The saloon is a spacious living area complete with solid teak yacht table, L-shaped settee, bar cabinet, and the helm station. Accessibility to the exterior and flybridge from the saloon is made easier with the presence of port and starboard saloon doors. Full instrumentation and the AC and DC panels are neatly recessed into the helm station. A full width teak console above the helm station provides space to house an array of electronics equipment. Three ply laminated safety glass windows all round provide full fore and aft visibility. The well equipped galley comes with hot and cold pressurized water system. The three-burner stove and oven, large stainless steel sink, dish locker and electric refrigerator are all conveniently located. The master stateroom aft has a double berth at starboard and a single berth at port with generous drawer space below. The adjoining toilet compartment is spacious and airy with full headroom. There is a separate shower stall with telephone-type shower, cultured marble counter top with built in sink, head, large mirror, and convenient storage space in the counter drawers and locker. The companionway in the aft stateroom leads to the aft deck. A neatly recessed stowaway teak ladder provides access to the aft deck via twin opening doors. The forward stateroom also has a large hanging locker and plenty of storage space. Its adjoining toilet compartment has full headroom, a large mirror, shower and cultured marble built in sink and sink counter top. Whether you are motoring around the bay or you're hundreds of miles at sea, quiet single or twin diesel engines are made quieter by the use of special engine room sound insulation. These smooth, heavy-duty engines provide long-range economical operation. GRAND BANK 36: Successor to the wooden 36 introduced in the 1960s, these boats enjoy the improvements and refinements of over 30 years. Known for seaworthiness and a comfortable ride, they are efficiently driven at 8.5 knots. Cruising at 12 knots is easily achieved with larger engines. Available in four deckhouse configurations, each with a number of interior layouts, the Classic features wide side decks, spacious lazarette, aft stateroom, and dinghy storage. The Europa offers one-level living with a main saloon that opens to the deck and a protected cockpit. One or two staterooms are located forward. The Sedan's traditional, open cockpit is a favorite among cruisers who love to fish. For more spacious accommodations, the motoryacht features a large, full width aft stateroom with a walk-around bed, and an equally attractive forward stateroom with optional island bed. The GB36 is a living legend that has been refined to perfection.
