Capable of true deep-water cruising, the Grand Banks 36 Heritage CL was a sea-worthy performer that spoke in equal measure to adventure, safety and beauty.
From the very first glance, it was easy to see why this Grand Banks-built, Ken Smith-designed yacht excelled in all areas.
Handsome golden Burmese teak was liberally used both above and below deck, a Grand Banks trademark that repeated itself along the main deck, swim platform, transom boarding steps, wide-side decks, port starboard and stern boarding gates. Along the wide expanse of flybridge, you would have found teak-slat seating for six adults.
Those who boarded saw teak parquet on the cabin soles and handcrafted teak locker and drawer space, yacht table, settee, bar cabinet and helm station.
As for personal comfort, one visit below and it's easy to see why this cruiser was meant for the long-haul: the generous master stateroom came standard with a queen berth. For privacy and comfort, the shower stall stood alone and the adjoining toilet compartment had full headroom. The forward stateroom had a large hanging locker and plenty of storage space. Its adjoining toilet compartment had full headroom and housed both a shower and cultured-marble, built-in sink/countertop.
Owners also prized the boat's proven reputation for superior stability and all-weather dependability. As for the noise, each single or twin diesel engine was muffled thanks to special engine room insulation.
Overall, an economical operation with an abundance of style.
