Standard Grand Banks 36 interior with the preferred island queen aft and with beautiful joinery and finish on full teak including teak parquet soles throughout. The original owner had a number of custom book racks and cabinets built into the boat providing more storage than virtually any other GB 36. There are numerous opening ports and windows providing an abundance of natural light and ventilation while properly placed reading and dome lights provide excellent artificial light throughout. Reverse Cycle Air conditioning (provides both heating and cooling) will provide ample warmth to all cabins on season extending cruises or cool the interior on the hottest of days. A Sony CDX-F50M AM/FM/Stereo CD receiver with CD changer/Controller/MP3 player was installed in 2007 and plays music to dual speakers in the Salon, Aft Cabin, and Flying Bridge.


Starting forward is the Forward Stateroom featuring a large V-berth with bin type stowage below and the typical teak hull ceiling over. There are 2 drawers and 2 lockers below the V-berth as well. Just aft of the port berth is the large hanging locker and opposite to starboard is the Guest Head featuring Groco electric W.C., ensuite shower, vanity and sink with H&C pressure water. There is good counter space and stowage. Up three steps is the Main Salon, Lower Helm Station, and Galley. The lower helm is to starboard and has full engine instrumentation, and houses the yacht's electrical distribution system, and navigational electronics. The Galley is opposite to port (see galley), aft of this area is the Main Salon featuring an L settee to starboard with stowage under and a fixed drop leaf teak dining table with bottle and magazine stowage below. Just forward of the L-settee is the cabinet housing the U-line ice maker (new '02) and glass and bottle storage further forward is the starboard access door. Opposite to port and just aft of the galley is a port side door, short bench settee, with stowage in a drop face locker under. All windows have off white drapes and there are numerous custom book racks aft as well as a custom cabinet for stereo equipment.


Down three steps is the Master Stateroom which features the preferred island queen layout was painted out the winter of 2012/13 and new light fixtures installed. The 60" X 80" berth has drawer storage under including a chart drawer and 2 deep storage drawers, a hidden cabinet with safe and a custom gun cabinet with lock. To starboard is a bureau, a number of large drawers under the side decks and a voluminous hanging locker. To port is a second bureau and again large drawers and lockers under the side decks. There is the standard GB aft cabin companionway and ladder to provide egress onto the aft deck if desired. Good sized Master Head, Groco electric W.C., ensuite shower, vanity & sink with H&C pressure water and good stowage.





The straight galley is to port in the Main Cabin area and features a large single basin sink with H&C pressure water, good counter space and storage, Force 10 3 burner propane stove & oven (new in '02), and Grunert holding plate refrigeration.




The yacht is wired for both 12 volt DC and 110 volt AC service. An 8KW Northern Lights genset handles heavier loads when off the dock while 3,000 watt Xantrex inverter easily handles lighter loads. The 12 volt power supplies are extensive with back ups for emergency equipment.

Flying Bridge Helm 






Hull & Deck


Solid fiberglass hull with molded in plank lines and stainless capped rub strake with original white gel coat in exc. condition, with blue boot top. The bottom of the yacht is painted with a hard epoxy anti fouling in blue.  A nice plus to this Grand Banks 36 is that the bottom was peeled in 2001 and laid back with 2 new layers of fiberglass in vinylester resin.


The house and decks are partially cored and the decks have a teak overlay in very good condition showing only minor wear. Teak cap rails, stainless stanchions and teak safety rails and other assorted teak trim is also in super condition; the brightwork is in excellent condition.


For those not familiar with Grand Banks; they have wonderful side decks with bulwarks and safety giving them a very "shippy" look and feel while also providing more timid yachtsmen a tremendous sense of security.
