Among the very last of the venerable Grand Banks 36 Classics to be built. This '96 was in dealer inventory and commissioned in 1997. Her single screw efficiency coupled with her bow thruster make her easy to own and operate. Her island queen layout is the preferred option! Major recent upgrades includes a brand new 5.5 kw Westerbeke generator winter of 16'/17'. Brand new Xantrex 3000 watt inverter/charger March 2018! Very seriously for sale.
Please see details about a recent very decent survey completed in July 2018 by a buyer under the "Additional" Section in full specs.

12 Volt system
As evidence of his commitment to keep the boat right the owner once discovered 3/18 replaced a failed 1500 watt inverter with the new Xantrex 3000 watt inverter!! even though boat was on the market and he has no plans to use her again!
Fully equipped upper and lower helm stations with full electronics and vessel controls. The electrical panels are located adjacent to the lower helm station.
Single Cummins 210 hp diesel engine turns a four bladed 26X21 propellor on 2" shaft through 2.5:1 Twin disc reduction gear. The yacht can be cruised at speeds of up to approximately 8.5 kts and shows 4042 hours as of date of listing. These engines are rated for 10,000 hours at full cruise but as the owners have generally run her at slower speeds she will likely reach a higher number of hours. (The regional Cummins surveyor/expert reports seeing these engines with as much as 14,000 hours on them)
Solid fiberglass hull with molded in planklines, and quarter guards, blue boot top. The bottom is finished in green ablative antifouling.

Purchased by her current owners 16 years ago, this Grand Banks 36 has been a New England Boat. Under current owners she has been in inside heated storage for approximately 8 month per year.
She went under agreement in July of 2018 and was surveyed. There were no major items discovered during a thorough survey performed at the buyers direction and by their choice of surveyor though there were some items that warranted Seller attention. Those items either have been addressed by the Seller or will be addressed this fall when the vessel is returned to the yard. The principal items discovered at time of survey are as follows:
1. Cutlass bearing near end of service life. 2. PSS dripless shaft seal due for service. 3. either the engine rear main seal or transmission has a small leak (over course of 90 minute sea trial approximately 3 drips of fluid noted coming from the "bell housing". This is the cover over the joint between the engine and transmission. 4. The hose from the turbo charger to the air intake blew off after approximately 3 minutes at wide open throttle. Due to age of the hose the interior surface had become very slippery. This has been replaced and a full 6+ minute wide open throttle test conducted. 5. leak in the return fuel hose to the starboard tank (this has been replaced and engine bilges cleaned). 6. Several inches of detached fiberglass tabbing at the aft cabin bulkhead in the lazarette, this is non-structural. Again the owner already has made plans with his yard to address the items not already dealt with when she goes back to the yard
