Boot Düsseldorf is the stage for the latest models of the quintessential trawlers. It’s the Grand Banks Heritage 43 EU, Grand Banks Heritage 54 EU, Grand Banks Aleutian 55 RP.
Allover the world Grand Banks Yachts Limited is “the” trawler, regardless of all the variations that many builders are introducing in their ranges. And the shipyard from Singapore sticks to tradition, as the three models introduced in Düsseldorf clearly show.
After the big success in USA, Grand Banks displays here the models launched in Europe at 2014 Cannes Yachting Festival: GB 54 Heritage EU, GB 55 Aleutian RP and 43 Heritage EU.
Grand Banks Heritage 54 EU
is the flagship of the Heritage fleet, and offers the best solution for the family looking for long range cruising. The hull is the same, appreciated one already used on the Aleutian 53, with V-drive transmissions. The standard layout offers three comfortable cabins and much storage space on the lower deck. The main deck features a large salon and a fully sheltered cockpit; the dinette faces the helm station amidships while abow there’s the rather large pilothouse.
Grand Banks Heritage 43 EU
is powered by twin Cummins 600HP each, and replaces the 41 EU launched four years ago introducing a larger cockpit, roomier cabins with smart solutions, and a more extended flybridge with space for everybody. Grand Banks Heritage 43 EU reaches a top speed of 24 kinots and a cruise of 20, but can navigate in displacement for boaters who still love slow cruising: the hull comes from the one already much appreciated, seen on the 41. One of the unique features of the 43 EU is a very big lazarette, with plenty of space for food, laundry and gear. Outdoor spaces are generous as well, the side decks are 48 cm wide and the helm station is wider than the one on the predecessor. The spectacular flybridge boasts a cozy dinette with a large table and an l-shaped couch, then a second couch, a center dashboard with additional seats on both sides, and enough space for a tender crane.
Grand Banks Aleutian 55 RP
follow the footsteps of the renown 53 Aleutian RP, with more space and luxury. The standard layout features three rooms, while the two additional feet reveal themselves in the salon and flybridge areas. The new interior trims are by Ardeo Design and combine fresh materials and fabrics for a cozier and warmer ambiance. The propulsion consists of two Cummins QSM11, for a cruise speed of 20 knots and a top of 24; two Volvo Penta or MAN up to 800HP each are available as an option.
