  1. New GB 72' Aleutian Expands On Fexas Design

    September 09, 2008: Grand Banks today unveiled a new addition to its growing Aleutian Series of raised pilothouse yachts, the 72 Aleutian SC. Scheduled for launch in 2009, this new model joins the 72RP as the largest and most luxurious yachts in the Grand Banks fleet.

    One look at the 72SC, however, reveals a key difference between this newest Aleutian and the original 72RP. Where the earlier model boasts an open lower cockpit with stairs up to the main deck level, the 72SC instead features a main deck that extends aft from the salon to the transom on one level - creating a wonderfully large outdoor living area covered by the flybridge deck above. In addition, the 72SC will be the first Grand Banks to offer the option of a four-stateroom layout.

    "The 72SC is a beautiful new alternative to the original RP model," said Neil McCurdy, Vice President of Sales and Service for Grand Banks. "The spacious aft deck is ideal for entertaining, dining with friends and family, or simply enjoying the outdoors. And the option of a fourth stateroom is something more of our customers are looking for today."

    Both the 72SC and RP offer new interior arrangements and accommodation layouts, including a stunning full-beam master stateroom. Sophisticated new styling, recently introduced to the Aleutian Series with the newly-launched 65RP, features contemporary and Asian influences to the d├ęcor and furnishings while remaining grounded in Grand Banks traditional nautical sensibility. What has not changed is her top-performing Fexas-designed hull, highly acclaimed for its stability, safety, and comfort when cruising in open waters.

    Together with the 59RP, 65RP and 72RP models, this new Grand Banks has contributed to making the Aleutian Series a rapidly growing segment of production for Grand Banks Yachts. As a result, the company has remained strong despite challenging markets in the U.S. and other parts of the world.

    "These new Aleutian models have driven very strong sales for Grand Banks across the globe," said McCurdy, "to the point that the Series now accounts for over 40 percent of revenues this past year, and more than 20 percent of our current production backlog."
