2002 Grand Banks Classic
Yacht price :
The "BLUE STAR"
The most popular arrangement in the renowned GB 36's. Twin 220 Cummins provide a 12 kt cruise, if desired, and the Island Queen aft stateroom along with loads of other pluses chief among them is extensive upgrading since early 2019 including new electronics, batteries, dinghy and motor, electric heads, wiper motors, brightwork stripped and refinished and many other items. As the very last Grand Banks 36 ever built she incorporates all of the refinements and lessons learned on 1134 prior boats!
The motivated Seller has put her on the market at an attractive price to avoid either winter layup or the cost of delivery south.
