MISS MAGGIE is a fine example of the wide body Grand Banks 36 Classic. Equipped with the very reliable and economical single 135HP, naturally aspirated Ford Lehman diesel, she will cruise at 7.5 knots at 2.25nm per gallon. The interior of the Grand Banks Classic is timeless; it remains virtually the same as in the mid-1960s when the Classic model was first introduced, featuring the signature handcrafted satin-varnished teak woodwork throughout and the teak parquet sole. The 36's semi-displacement hull with a long keel, hard chines and a deep forefoot provide the stability and reputation for seaworthiness that makes the Classic a highly desirable vessel.
There is more than ample stowage in hanging lockers, drawers and other tucked away spaces throughout the boat. In 1987, the 36 Classic was slightly enlarged with 6" added to the length and 4" to the beam. A door leading to the port side deck was also added. This 36 Classic model features the aft Master Stateroom option with starboard double berth and single berth on portside, ensuite Head and separate stall Shower compartment--must be seen!
MISS MAGGIE is in excellent shape and she's ready for a new owner to enjoy for many years! The GB 36 Classic is a wonderful choice for cruising the Great Loop!
Why she's priced at $75,000. The portside fuel tank has a hole in it somewhere and needs replacing. The current Owner has been running her for a couple of years just on the starboard 200 gallon tank. Also the Saloon and the Forward Stateroom cushions need replacement - they are original, stained and worn.
MISS MAGGIE is a two stateroom layout in the traditional Grand Banks 36 Classic style. Starting at the bow and moving aft, the forward cabin has a large "V" berth, hanging locker, drawers and private Head with Shower. Up a few steps to the Salon, the lower Helm is to starboard with navigation electronics. A door to starboard leads to wide side decks with bulwarks, stainless steel stanchions and varnished handrails. Full Galley is to port; aft of Galley is another side door leading to the port side decks. There is a Grand Banks sculptured chair in the port aft corner of the Salon. To starboard, aft of the Helm, is a cabinet and L-shaped dinette with fold-down teak table. The aft cabin is down a few steps and has a starboard double berth, hanging locker, drawers and plenty of storage. The Head is to starboard, with a separate Shower. To port is a large closet with double doors. Aft of that is a single berth and additional storage.
The forward Guest cabin V-berths have teak ceiling boards on the hull sides. The hanging locker in this stateroom is to port with a hinged louvered door. The Head has a molded counter, manual Head and handheld Shower with teak grate and automatic drain pump. Going up four steps to the Salon, there is one drawer and bookshelves on the port side for additional storage.
The Saloon is also the traditional layout with the Galley forward and to port followed by a port side door to the wide teak side decks. In the aft corner, against the bulkhead is a Grand Banks signature wood "sculpted" chair. Directly across is an L-settee against the aft and starboard bulkhead. The standard Grand Banks drop-leaf table is in front of the L-settee. A dry bar (glasses and bottles) with storage in the bottom compartment, is forward of the settee. The lower Helm is forward and to starboard, with a starboard side deck access door. The Helm location as all the requisite engine controls and gauges; AC/DC control panels are located to lower starboard of the Helm.
The Galley is the straight line "up galley" on the forward port side of the main cabin. Beginning at the console, there is a dish locker with hinged cover. Next to it is the Princess 3-burner propane stove, with oven below. Beneath the oven is a storage drawer for pots and pans. A Galley fan is located in the overhead console near the stove. Aft of the stove is the stainless steel sink. For storage, there are drawers, below counter hinged cupboard space and a pull-out counter extension for additional prep space. Further on is a stainless steel lined, insulated 12v DC refrigerator with signature Grand Banks teak door. Glass storage is located at the end of the counter, with a cabinet above for storing glassware and small dishes. The Galley also has a swing-out trash container mounted on a teak door, located on the port side of the Helm station. The 12-gallon water heater, along with the pressure water system with accumulator, are located in the engine room.
The Master Stateroom is aft, with the very desirable double-sized berth on the starboard side and a single berth on the port. Plenty of storage is provided to port and starboard. The Head and Vanity are to starboard/forward and the Shower is in a separate compartment. There is convenient access to the aft deck via a companionway hatch and door.
The Flybridge is very spacious. The bench Helm and companion seats have matching white vinyl upholstery. A Bimini provides shade to the entire seating area. The wide teak decks are in very good condition. There are grab rails around the entire deck perimeter to enable crew to move safely around in rough seas. The Lewmar windlass can be operated up/down at the bow or from the upper Helm station. Another nice feature is the Spring Line Cleat located port and starboard sides. On the starboard aft cabin top, there is a set of dinghy chocks for the 2013 West Marine 8.5' tender, which is hoisted into position using the vessel's boom and mast.
MISS MAGGIE has the very reliable 135HP Ford Lehman naturally-aspirated diesel engine. Question posed at a recent Stuart, FL TrawlerFest--"How many hours can you expect from a Ford Lehman engine?" Ken Smith responded, "Oh, about 10,000 to 15,000 and about $6,000 to rebuild." Need we say more?
Because this 36 Classic is a wide-body, there is ample room to work around both sides of the engine, and aft of the engine; the genset. The Air Conditioning System has a unit for each cabin with its own controls to ensure personal comfort.
The generator is located on the centerline aft of the main engine. It provides ample power for all the AC power needs on the boat. There are AC and DC outlets located throughout the vessel. The dockside power supply to the vessel is either at the bow or stern via a 35' 50 amp shore power cable.
There is a dual anchor at the pulpit with an electric windlass.
