Grand Banks announces on water display at Sanctuary Cove show

The luxury and craftsmanship of Grand Banks will again be on display at the 2013 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in May.

The company’s on-water display includes a recently-arrived three-cabin 53 Aleutian RP model and a new 47 Heritage EU.

Grand Banks Asia-Pacific Managing Director Hank Compton said he and the team are excited to have the new Aleutian on display.

“She epitomises the style of a blue-water cruising yacht for which Grand Banks is renowned – a safe, seaworthy ride enjoyed in luxury and style,” he said.

The 53 includes the features and style of her big sisters, the 59, 65 and 72 and 76 Aleutian models. These include a full-beam master stateroom, the modified deep-V hull that performs at hull or planing speeds and ample power through twin turbo diesel engines – up to 715hp each in the 53. 

The 47 Heritage EU epitomised the trawler-style design on which Grand Banks built its reputation.

“The 47 EU’s rock-solid reliability is complemented by elegant lines and a gracious interior,” said Hank.

The Sparkman & Stephens modified deep-V hull delivers sprightly performance when needed while maintaining economic fuel consumption.

The Grand Banks display will again be mid-way along F pier at the show.
