Grand Banks Launches Online Parts Store
Owners can now buy parts for new and used models at GBparts.com
SEATTLE – October 1, 2008 –
Grand Banks Yachts has launched a new online parts store, www.GBparts.com. Customers can visit the web site to order and purchase a variety of Grand Banks and OEM parts, including hardware, electrical components and even special-order items such as the builder's signature hand-made teak steering wheel.
Each part on this web site includes a large photo image, description, specifications and pricing information, making it easy for online shoppers to choose the right part for their needs. Purchases can be made directly from the site using a secure credit card transaction system.
Grand Banks owners will find parts for the company's newer yachts, as well as some components for retired models. Because parts orders are placed directly with Grand Banks factory, customers searching for out-of-date parts can also get recommendations for appropriate replacements.
"We wanted to give our owners the convenience of online ordering, and to do it right," said David Hensel, Director of Brand and Marketing for Grand Banks. "The web plays such a central role in the way customers connect with Grand Banks, this is just one more example of how we try to meet the rising demand for online support."
GrandBanks.com was awarded "Best Manufacturer Site" by the NMMA in 2006. The company continues to grow its online presence, launching an enhanced and expanded site earlier this year.
