Most boats are built to ABYC standards and endorsed by the NMMA in the US.
However, safety is of paramount importance to Grand Banks and all of our models can be made to comply with the highest standard of certification – the European CE Category A.


Bespoke construction techniques and the use of the highest quality materials ensure that every model in the Grand Banks range is strong, rigid and has a low center of gravity. This combination of attributes is one you’ll appreciate when you encounter choppy conditions offshore – a Grand Banks handles beautifully in ugly weather! And, in the unlikely event of a collision, you can rest secure in the knowledge that the bulkhead at the anchor locker is fully watertight and shock resistant.

Wherever possible, we’ve erred on the side of caution and installed failsafe mechanical systems that are more reliable than their electronic counterparts. Valves, shut-offs, battery overrides and the like will not be prone to malfunction. By keeping it simple, we’re keeping it safe.

And on those days when the seas are running high, you’ll appreciate the bulwarks, bow rails and grab handles that make it easy to move around the boat without fear of losing balance.

Safety could be described as a hidden feature of our yachts. But an important one. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to truly relax and enjoy the many pleasures of being on board.
