Grand Banks 36


Owners describe the sensation at the helm of a Grand Banks

as stable, steady and supremely responsive. Our reputa-

tion for a superior cruising experience is one built from the

bottom up literally, starting with an expertly designed

and constructed hull for each of our Heritage, Eastbay and

Aleutian models.

The 47EU’s Sparkman Stephens-designed hull, a modified

deep-V, is no exception. One of the first things you’ll notice

is how well it performs with today’s high-powered engines.

Passing 20 knots on a plane with a pair of standard 500-hp

diesels on board, the ride is remarkable: quiet, comfortable,

and agile at a touch of the wheel.

Many subtle design features contribute to the low trim angle

and great visibility, from the distribution of weight to the

specialized geometry of the propeller tunnels. Those twin

tunnels also allow for the use of larger and more efficient

props when bigger engines are on board — and help to

keep things quiet inside, even at high speeds. The dual-chine

hull gets you swiftly up on plane, and along with the flared

bow helps keep things dry on deck. More rake in the bow

angle and a shallower forefoot make for a softer, more

comfortable entry of the hull into rough waters. Placement

and size of the keel keeps her solidly on track.

And then there’s the beam: at 15 feet 9 inches, her wide

beam not only provides for more space and openness

throughout the living areas, it also serves to increase stability

at sea for an even more comfortable ride.

Just as important as the design of her hull is

its construction — a time-tested process that

is renowned for producing seaworthy, long-

lasting boats. The highest quality fiberglass

fabrics are expertly hand laid and laminated

with resins selected for their ability to resist

blistering. The 47EU is solid fiberglass below

the waterline, with topsides that are cored

above the boot stripe using Herex cross-

linked closed-cell foam to prevent water

intrusion. This coring is vacuum-bagged

into place to optimize strength and weight

savings. A system of heavy-duty stringers is

molded of fiberglass and bonded to the hull

for added strength and rigidity.

Another example of Grand Banks’ meticu-

lous approach to construction is the use of

clear gel coat below the waterline, which

allows for a thorough and rigorous visual
