The entrance door is aft on Port outboard side, into the salon. A large L-settee is on starboard and comfortable barrel chair with ottoman is on port. There is an extendable high/low dining/coffee table inboard of the settee.

The lower helm is opposite the galley. The helm area offers a helm side door, oversized single STIDD seat, and an electronics Himalaya that allows all electronics to be flush mounted.

The galley is on port at mid-level, two steps lower than the salon and two steps higher than the forward companionway. The galley is very smartly laid out. It is U-shaped and offers a microwave, undercounter Subzero refrigerator, and a stand up under-counter freezer. There is a Ceran glass cooktop and granite counters.  A large pantry opens for additional storage.

The forward stateroom has an island queen berth, full size hanging locker, and a combination washer/dryer that is flush mounted in the aft bulkhead with teak access doors. There is abundant storage.

The forward guest head offers two doors and can function as ensuite or day head. There is a very cleverly designed fold-out shower that when extended, offers plenty of elbow room and keeps the rest of the head dry. With these shower doors folded and locked against the side and aft bulkhead, it greatly enlarges the guest head.

Exterior Equipment

GOTCHA has a minimal amount of exterior teak for less maintenance yet maintains enough to be recognizable as a GRAND BANKS.  She has a highly varnished teak cap rail that’s the real thing, not plastic, and teak treads on stairs to flybridge.  No teak transom or teak decking!  All the windows are self framing and unlike others who use metal trim, do not require maintenance.  This boat is the only one built with a flybridge hardtop thus she looks like a much larger, more expensive boat than she is.  All window Textiline mesh covers are included.  Another very nice feature is the raised fuel fill.  This makes fueling much easier without having to kneel on the hard deck surface plus has a return opening if there is an accidental overflow.
