    Hi there!
    I’m new here and wanted to know if there is ANYONE out there would happen to have or know someone who may have, an owners manual to a 1972 11.5 meter Grand Banks Laguna. We recently purchased this beautiful boat last year and we are desperate for this information!
    Thank you!!

    It will be tough as the Laguna models were quite limited. We had a Laguna 10 meter and ran it through two sets of original GMC Toro-Flow Diesels, what a learning curve! Loved the Robert Dorris designed deep-vee though, there was nothing that little 33’ couldn’t handle and the 38’ was even stouter. The entertainer Joey Bishop had a well known 11.5 meter that he kept at his waterfront house in Newport Beach , California.

    Try the GB site, are you looking for anything specific?

    For those unfamiliar, here’s the 11.5 meter model:

    And the 10 meter model, albeit with a butchered Flybridge remodel, not original:
