With the GB60 Skylounge feature and this classic restoration story both magnificently featured in the same edition, we’re able to witness the transition Grand Banks Yachts has gone through from the 1960s to now.
From designing classic trawler-style yachts, popularizing the recreational trawler around the world and marking the beginning of what Grand Banks would pride itself on for many years to come, to now developing modern age, highly efficient long-range cruisers which employ high-quality modern technology, materials and expertise. Modern technology and equipment have these grand vessels performing better than ever before, there are timeless features which have been maintained from the 1960s and will cease to expire but we now have the modern equipment and technology to help preserve aspects of the classic trawler yacht design. As Jonathan Cooper preferred to state;
“This is not your father’s Grand Banks, and that’s precisely the point. “
Summing up perfectly Grand Banks’ transition through the ages, Grand Banks Yachts aren’t the same as the 1960s, but yachts grow with age as we do and in that, they also adapt to their surroundings. We’ve honed in on classic features from the iconic trawler yacht and incorporated modern features to boost performance, efficiency and deliver a top of the range luxury yacht to our Grand Banks family.
