From a note by Scott Dodge....
"The Grand Banks 32 is one of the most popular small trawler designs ever produced. They were built to high standards and the lines and accommodations have stood the test of time. This is a very dependable and seaworthy small cruiser that will provide her new owners with many years of pleasant and economical boating."
Sumu is a great example of what Scott speaks to. Her meticulous owners have spared no expense in maintaining her to these high standards. Maintenance records and receipts are available.
1974 is the first year fiberglass was used in the Grand Banks.
