The Grand Banks 50 had two full-height engine rooms equipped as standard with big, heavy-duty Ammarine;® 404 diesels. Jointly developed by John Deere and American Marine, Ltd., the 404's were slow-turning, smooth, quiet, counter-rotating matched pairs, coupled through large reduction gears and big-diameter commercial propellers. This combination resulted in economy, comfort and handling characteristics that typify a proper ship.
The Grand Banks 50 featured accommodations on three decks. The lower deck had four double sleeping cabins, three bathrooms and two full-height engine rooms. The main deck had a laid teak cockpit, laid teak covered side decks and foredeck, living room sized salon, fully equipped galley and bar, and a separate pilot house. The upper deck had a 20' long sun deck, a fully equipped flying bridge with seating for 10 and ample additional storage for ship's boats and deck gear.
All interiors were luxuriously finished in golden Burmese teak with teak parquet flooring and fine teak furniture.
