WAVE WALKER is a remarkable Grand Banks 49 in both her condition and equipment. She has been professionally maintained and cruised sparingly on the East Coast. For much of her life she was stored out of the water in the winter - under cover - and as a result, her teak decks and exterior surfaces are in better condition than one would expect for a vessel of her age.
Her current owners have not been able to use her as much as they intended and are reluctantly putting her on the market for someone who can appreciate an outstanding vessel that is ready to go.
