1975 Grand Banks 32 Sedan
Yacht price :
Grand Banks 32, an honest design with tons of charm and quality!
For over the last 50 years Grand Banks (American Marine) has established a well earned reputation as an excellent coastal cruiser and the 32 #517 "Lady Jen" is no exception. Equipped with a single 225 HP Lehman engine (re-powered in 1984), she cruises comfortably at 8 knots and is capable of a maximum speed of 12 knots. Renowned craftsmanship with teak joinery, very nice original condition this is an excellent candidate. The gel coat, teak decks and fuel tanks are surprisingly in very sound shape. Same owner since 1987!

Lehman Power Corporation pioneered the marinization of engines as far back as 1932. The Lehman Econ-O-Power trademark was recognized and respected by boat builders and owners throughout the world. For over 50 years, Lehman had been an organization of dedicated boatmen with a keen appreciation of the proper specification and operation of marine power. The compact design of Lehman Econ-O-Power diesels with special monobloc cast iron exhaust manifolds has shell type tubular heat exchangers and coolers for streamlined appearance and long lasting operation. The Lehman Econ-O-Power engine is built using a Ford engine as the "base" unit. Lehman manufactured and provided the "conversion" equipment... those parts that are needed to adapt the Ford engine to marine use. One of Lehmans' most popular diesels, the 380 cubic inch engine is conservatively rated at 120 horsepower at 2500 rpm. The engine has a long history of thoroughbred performance, beginning in 1958 as the Ford Dagenham diesel. Also contributing to the popularity of this engine are the same high performance, high economy features which characterize all Lehman Power diesel marine engines.
The four cycle design, high compression ratio and overhead valves assure clean burning, odor free combustion. The resulting maximization of fuel economy and dependable performance have established this engine as a "pacesetter" among commercial operators, and a favorite of boaters.
Underlying its rugged performance is its rugged construction...a deep, rigid block. The crankshaft is equipped with large diameter crankpins and main bearings. Four hole injectors are fed by an efficient CAV Minimec fuel injection pump which is driven directly by camshaft gearing. This eliminates the exposed auxiliary drive shaft and couplings that were used in earlier models. Lehman diesel marine engines turn counter-clockwise (viewed from the stern of the boat facing forward). Velvet Drive transmission offers positive acting, smooth dependable performance under varied loads.
1984 Lehman introduced the Super Series (SP) variant (135, 160, 225 & 275). Offering numerous improvements and designs to an already proven power plant. The Super Series Lehmans incorporate the following;
- SP 225 225 horsepower at 2450 rpm
- 363 cubic inch displacement
- 6 cylinders
- Compression ratio 14.7:1
- Oil Capacity 19.8 quarts
- One piece manifold
- The new gas flowed design ensures maximum power minimum noise and minimum fuel consumption
- New space saving expansion tank down angled design tank with ingenious de-aeration system
- Fresh water cooled turbo charger (SP 160 & 225). The turbo charger is an integral part of this engine, not merely an "add on" accessory.
- New slim fit cooling circuit, coolers have stronger internal construction and are positioned along the engine making a slim fit with more reliability
- Smoother running, high inertia flywheel gives smooth flexible power
- Quieter, stiffer and stronger block and head to reduce noise
- Helical flow induction ports and larger inlet valves ensure better breathing
- New combustion chamber design developed to obtain the best fuel air mixing for a faster smoother more efficient combustion
- 70 amp Motorola alternator with integral solid state voltage regulator and automatic oil pressure switch (for energizing or disconnecting the system on engine start-up or shut-down).
- Motorola tachometer
- Stewart Warner oil pressure, engine coolant temp, amperage & volt meters

No compromise has been made in the design and construction of the Grand Banks 32 which incorporate well thought-out safety features to add to your cruising confidence. These features include dependable mechanical steering with emergency steering capability, automatic alarms for engine oil pressure and water temperature, circuits, seacocks on all thru hull fittings below the waterline, automatic bilge pump and hand bilge pump located for quick access from the helm. In addition , life rails and grab rails are provided all around the cabin and flybridge. Three-ply safety glass is used throughout. The engine room is ventilated by electric blowers, the bilge is protected from engine oil by molded fiberglass pan, each fuel tank is fitted with a safety ball shut off valve. All thru hulls, underwater running gear, tanks and deck fills are copper bonded and connected to a single point at the engine frame. With 110 gallons of water and 250 gallons of fuel in her tanks you can remain away from civilization for weeks at a time. This 32 has been owned by a series of very knowledgable yachtsman who have taken excellent care of all service items. Complete Navy Blue Sunbrella canvas covers for varnished teak handrails/ cap rails and window covers. The original gelcoat and teak decks are in very good condition.
