We offer the full range of Grand Banks trawlers for sale. Owning a Grand Banks trawler is unlike any other marine experience. A select network of people and services stands ready to maximize the magic that piloting and owning a Grand Banks brings. Grand Banks got its start in Hong Kong in when American Marine, ltd.
Founder Robert J. Newton and his sons ran a custom boatyard in Hong Kong. In the early 1960s through a collaboration with Kenneth Smith, they designed and produced Spray, a 36-foot diesel cruiser with workman-like lines. This design forms the basis of today's Grand Banks Heritage series with boats ranging in length from 43 feet to 54 feet.
Grand Banks trawlers followed that design with the Eastbay Series, based on traditional downeast lobster trawlers, with models running 45 feet to 55 feet. The launch of the luxurious Aleutian Series in 2001 featured traditional raised pilothouse watercraft with traditional designs in a larger format up to 76 feet in length that added a new level of style and sophistication along with the seaworthiness that customers have come to expect.
Today, Grand Banks builds its often imitated, high performance trawlers out of its state-of-the-art shipyard in Malaysia. With many Grand Banks trawler models currently in production over three series, it's time to treat yourself to the gold standard of the cruising industry.

This Grand Banks Heritage Europa 47 was originally custom built with
many additional features and is the Extended Cockpit model. This is a
Sparkman & Stephens designed Grand Banks 47, with the newer hull
design, which is more stable, more efficient and more pleasant to be
operating and riding on. The ride is remarkable (not to be confused
with the older generations of Europa's). Many subtle design features
contribute to the low trim angle and excellent visibility.
Distribution of weight, shallow prop tunnels, dual chine and flared
bow, increased rake of the bow and shallower forefoot all make for a
comfortable ride and easy entry of the hull in rougher waters. This
model also has a 15' 9" beam and revised keel design.
This newer GB EU 47 is solid fiberglass below the waterline and
topsides are cored with Herex® cross-linked, closed-cell foam to
prevent water intrusion. All coring is vacuum bagged to optimize
strength. When manufactured, the bottom received a clear layer of gel
coat and 3 layers of epoxy barrier coat, which reduces the chance of
osmosis. Heavy duty stringers of molded fiberglass are bonded to the
hull for additional strength and rigidity.
This model is powered by twin Cummins QSC8.3 diesels rated at 550 hp
each. Brochure speeds offered by Grand Banks are 22 kts. @ 2600 rpm
and 26 kts. @ 3000 rpm. I have personally seen these speeds to be a
reality (and greater) on a sea trial, when the yacht was purchased by
the current owner. The current owner normally likes to slow cruise
this boat, more in tune with displacement speeds. This is a two owner
boat, first launched in May of 2011 and then purchased in May 2013 by
the current owner.
The interior layout is the two stateroom model, with island queen
berth forward with ensuite head for the Master. Guest cabin has twin
side by side berths with day/guest head/ shower opposite. Ergonomic
designing of the interior, re-fashioned flybridge and the extended
overhead,10' aft deck/cockpit make for comfortable and easy living on
board. Galley is up. Interior is hand-crafted teak paneling of
classic styling. Visibility is excellent from all helm stations and
from the seats in the salon.
This yacht is being maintained to the highest degree. Over the
winter, during the winter storage indoors, there is a very precise,
methodical maintenance program underway. Condition is and will
continue to be excellent. It is a modern Grand Banks Heritage
Europa 47 with Extended Aft Deck and for sale in the USA. We welcome
your inspection. This is one, not to miss.
