When you want to know how good a particular yacht really is, ask those who own one. In the case of the Grand Banks 49 Classic, few boats in this class were as highly regarded by serious cruisers.
Valued for its creature comforts as well as for its long-range cruising capability, this yacht was especially appreciated by those who planned to spend a significant amount of time on the water.
Versatility also played a key role in its popularity. Even with its generous proportions, the 49 Classic was exceptionally well suited to those interested in piloting their own ship. With the dual helm station, piloting the boat could be done from up top on the flybridge or from the inside steering/navigation station.
As for sleeping comfort, two basic configurations (plus a number of customized options) were available. One configuration put the emphasis on privacy, the other on providing berths for as many guests as possible. Each layout offered the benefit of fore and aft cabins divided by the large main salon.
Overall, an intelligent vessel known far and wide for its safe, dependable, teak-crafted beauty.
