One of the many advantages of the motoryacht design is the full beam aft deck located above the master stateroom. This area has proven to be one of the finest gathering areas for entertaining, relaxing or cruising. The aft deck is just steps away from the flybridge and is easily accessed from the wide lower decks without needing ladders or awkward single steps.

In the salon located on the starboard aft side is a long "L" shaped settee and the traditional Grand Banks teak yacht table. Across is a portside bench seat with under-storage and a door to the side decks. Galley is up and to port with a large sink, 3 burner electric cooktop and Grunert holding plate refrigerator. Just opposite is the lower helm station and door to starboard side decks. Directly behind the helm is an optional bar with icemaker. The open bright salon makes for a great entertainment area.

The aft stateroom, like the entire boat, displays the beautiful teak joinery for which Grand Banks is known the world over. Teak parquet sole, built in furniture, cabinets and hand crafted moldings are blended with durable fabrics to create the timeless yacht look and feel. The master has the popular island queen berth layout with private owner's head on port side and separate stall shower located to starboard.

The forward guest cabin features a v-berth, wardrobe, 6 drawers, Grunert cruising freezer, bookshelves, reading lights and an overhead hatch. To port is the forward head and features a shower, sink, mirror, storage and counter space.

The mid-stateroom features pocket doors, reading lights, extra storage, wardrobe & custom bookcases.

The flybridge offers excellent visibility when underway or maneuvering dockside. A pair of back to back double seats provides generous seating for eight with storage beneath. On the aft starboard side of the flybridge is a teak table, an L-shaped lounge seat with cushions and more storage below. The bridge console has full instrumentation, with handy storage for large items below and a handcrafted teak-spoked steering wheel with stainless steel trim: a Grand Banks hallmark.

Holdover Cold Plate Refrigeration

A holdover system is not like your common household refrigerator. The availability of 110 volt power is limited on a boat therefore, the refrigerator is not capable of cycling on and off every time the door is opened allowing cold air to escape and the air air temperature to increase. Holdover refrigeration enables you to "maintain" temperatures over a period of time.

For instance, imagine the holdover plate as being a large sponge, but instead of absorbing water, it absorbs heat. The holdover plate is sized so that it can continuously absorbs heat while the condenser is off. Once the holdover plate has absorbed it's capacity in heat (larger plates have more BTU capacity) the condenser needs to cycle on to remove the heat. All Grunert holdover plates are filled with a eutectic solution that maintains the same temperature through the duration of its holdover period. The freezer plates are frozen at 0 degrees Fahrenheit and the refrigerator plate freezes at 26 degrees Fahrenheit. The refrigerator or freezer's box temperature will be approximately 10 degrees higher than the plate temperature. The condenser (when water cooled) needs to run about 1 to 1.5 hours to completely remove the heat in the eutectic solution.
