Owners Statement/Yacht History "I purchased the Luna Maris in December of 2017. The boat was located in Hilton Head, South Carolina at the time where the current owner had kept the boat for a few years. Previously the boat was kept in Beaufort, South Carolina (not far from Hilton Head) by the previous owner that had kept the boat for many years. By all indications this owner had maintained the vessel well, and had commissioned several interior renovations during his ownership. Particularly of note is the custom galley area which accommodates a much larger refrigerator and a built in microwave, which is not the standard layout for the Grand Banks. The RV sized refrigerator is powered by both DC and AC, and offers substantial space for both refrigeration and freezer.                                            I looked at several Grand Banks and most of them did not show the continued care that I insist upon when buying a boat. The Luna Maris displayed a good level of maintenance and care by her previous owner in Beaufort. It was my opinion at the time that the boat was overall in above average condition when compared with other boats.                                   The survey was performed on December 17th, 2017 and determined that in the view of the surveyor the vessel condition was noted as above average. We brought the boat up to Maine in April of 2018 with passage both in the ICW and outside. The boat performed very well and proved to be a comfortable cruiser on the trip. Upon arrival in Maine I put the boat into Front Street shipyard to perform engine maintenance and other minor items such as rebuilding the aft salon exterior door. During this time a new door was fabricated for the main cabin and installed. Upon relaunch and final cleaning of the bilge we noted a slow leak from the keel area. I had noted some blisters on the forward hull during the haul-out and survey, so we hauled out, sandblasted, filled any blisters, added three coats of primer and three coats of bottom paint." ~ Current Owner Luna Maris
