Grand Banks Yachts Summer Wind

46' - Grand Banks Yachts - 1998

 

Superb, stunning, sublime.
Summer Wind is cruising ready, having just completed half of the Great Loop. Built in Singapore to exacting specifications, the Grand Banks Europa is a real head-turner.  Sea-kindly and powerful with twin Caterpillar 3208 engines, this vessel can take you anywhere in any conditions.  Summer Wind has spent most of her life in the North East, which means a short, 4 to 5 month sailing season, and covered winter storage. That, combined with fastidious owners, makes for a boat that ‘stands out in a crowd’.  

This Grand Banks Europa 46 is currently on the hard in Mathews, Virginia.  It is a 2 cabin-2 head vessel with galley up. The lower helm station has excellent visibility and access to the starboard side deck through a swing door.  The spacious salon is light and well ventilated thanks to large windows all round. Easy access to the salon from the cockpit as well as through the door at the lower helm,  create good flow.

Grand Banks Yachts Summer Wind Details

 

Superb, stunning, sublime.
Summer Wind is cruising ready, having just completed half of the Great Loop. Built in Singapore to exacting specifications, the Grand Banks Europa is a real head-turner.  Sea-kindly and powerful with twin Caterpillar 3208 engines, this vessel can take you anywhere in any conditions.  Summer Wind has spent most of her life in the North East, which means a short, 4 to 5 month sailing season, and covered winter storage. That, combined with fastidious owners, makes for a boat that ‘stands out in a crowd’.  

This Grand Banks Europa 46 is currently on the hard in Mathews, Virginia.  It is a 2 cabin-2 head vessel with galley up. The lower helm station has excellent visibility and access to the starboard side deck through a swing door.  The spacious salon is light and well ventilated thanks to large windows all round. Easy access to the salon from the cockpit as well as through the door at the lower helm,  create good flow.

High bulwarks make the lower decks safe in a seaway. Steps from cockpit to flybridge are solid and gently angled, making them easy to navigate. The flybridge has a helm station forward, and seating for a large party, with a teak table at the rear and spray cloths attached to the stainless steel lifelines. A large bimini provides shade over the forward area and has an eisenglas enclosure.  The dinghy sits on chocks on the aft upper deck; an 800# crane is positioned on the starboard side of the aft deck, so dinghy deployment & stowage is simple.  

Meticulous maintenance is evident when you lay eyes on this boat.
