Reverse Cycle Air conditioning (provides both heating and cooling) will provide ample warmth to all cabins on season extending cruises or cool the interior on the hottest of days.

Hull & Deck


Solid fiberglass hull with molded in plank lines and stainless capped rub strake with original white gel coat in exc. condition, with blue boot top. The bottom of the yacht is painted with a hard epoxy anti fouling in blue.  A nice plus to this Grand Banks 36 is that the bottom was peeled in 2001 and laid back with 2 new layers of fiberglass in vinylester resin.


The house and decks are partially cored and the decks have a teak overlay in very good condition showing only minor wear. Teak cap rails, stainless stanchions and teak safety rails and other assorted teak trim is also in super condition; the brightwork is in excellent condition.


For those not familiar with Grand Banks; they have wonderful side decks with bulwarks and safety giving them a very "shippy" look and feel while also providing more timid yachtsmen a tremendous sense of security.
