The brand new Grand Banks 54 manages to feature everything that makes these yachts great while incorporating significant improvements in technology and hull design. The result is an ideal upgrade for an older trawler yacht or a perfect “first big boat” for those stepping up from an express cruiser. Designed for long-range owner-operated cruising, the new 54 utilizes a redesigned hull that, in layman’s terms, is “more slippery.” Combined with lighter overall weight that allows for improved fuel efficiency, a critical factor in making it from one port to another far away. Twin Volvo D11 725-hp engines and 900-gallon fuel tanks provide a cruising range of 2,100 miles at 10 knots, with a top speed of 36 mph, an impressive velocity for any vessel that doubles up as a 3-bedroom house. The exterior is classic GB, from the flybridge to the covered cockpit, while the interior can be laid out with two or three staterooms. The main level features an enclosed helm station, and a large galley and salon, all accented with Grand Banks’ signature golden teak; GrandBanks.com.
