Grand Banks Cruising Yachts

GB Aleutian 55 RP_9770

Cruising in motor yachts without crew is one of yachting’s great personal luxuries. The freedom to do what you want to do when you the owner wants to do it. For us the Grand Banks range symbolises this cruising ideal with their rugged hulls and huge internal spaces that have been so well designed for long term cruising opportunities.

The largest of the company’s Heritage series fleet, the Grand Banks 54 Heritage EU, for example, provides the perfect solution for a couple or family looking for extended cruising capabilities.

It is built on the same highly-acclaimed, GB-designed hull as the 53 Aleutian RP, with its V-drive propulsion system.

The standard three stateroom layout – with its multi-function utility room – offers exceptional living and storage space on the lower deck, plus the option to add crew quarters. The main deck features expansive seating in the salon and fully-covered cockpit, a dedicated dinette across from the mid-ship galley, and a spacious helm area complete with both captain and navigation seats.

The all-new 55 Aleutian RP follows in the steps of the acclaimed 53 Aleutian RP, but provides additional room and luxury. Standard layouts include three generous staterooms below deck and an expansive utility room for any cruising need. The two extra feet are readily apparent, from more space in the cockpit and flybridge, added length in the acclaimed utility room, and an all-new dedicated transom locker that will accommodate up to four large 45cm x 73cm fenders.

The main deck features split entertaining areas; the salon with abundant seating, and the pilothouse for any eating or navigation needs. the 55RP will also feature brand new interior decorations for a fresh look and feel. Other features on board the 55RP will include a second transom door for cockpit access, integrated wing engine control stations, comfortable aft staircase to the flybridge, a large swim platform (that can be equipped with a Sealift tender lift system), and expanded provisions for galley storage and seating.

The 55RP will also boast a progressive, new interior created by Ardeo Design, Inc, that incorporates more materials and textures to create a lighter and warmer interior ambiance.

The standard power offering aboard the 55RP will be twin Cummins QSM11 diesel engines, rated at 715 (mhp), with a projected cruise speed of 20 knots and a max speed of 24 knots. Optional engine offerings will include both Volvo and MAN diesels with horsepower options up to 800 (mhp).
