This one owner Grand Banks 59 Aleutian is beautifully presented after recently completing a comprehensive maintenance period at our service yard which included anti-foul, prop speed, full boat polish, new flybridge clears, new clothes washing machine, new cockpit bar fridge, and new cockpit upholstery. The capping rails have been sanded and oiled, and the teak decks present as new. Inspection is highly recommended and will not disappoint!
'Grand Seas' features a teak laid swim platform complete with S/S transom rails across the stern to which a Sovereign Electric BBQ and Bait Board are/can be mounted. Entry to her beamy cockpit is via dual entry (fittedwith pet/children gates) off the swim platform. A wide bench seat (with new upholstery), under the cover of the flybridge hardtop overhang, is a magic entertaining space. The fixed cockpit tables can be joined to make one large/wide space for entertaining a crowd. A bar fridge is close by to keep everybody hydrated. The external staircase to the flybridge (rather than a ladder) is another welcome feature of this model. Remembering also the hallmark Grand Banks Aleutian walk around side decks & Portuguese bridge make 'Grand Seas' a very safe and practical vessel when moving around on deck. Note also the wing doors to both side decks which can be closed in windy conditions to improve comfort levels in the cockpit.
Up on the flybridge you will find the tender stored aft. Two Stidd helm chairs provide comfortable seating and an excellent outlook for the skipper and navigator. In addition to the helm seating additional upholstered bench seating (with lots of storage under) is installed to both port and starboard making this area another wonderful entertaining space with elevated views! The extended awning as installed on 'Grand Seas' permits all weather access to the flybridge from the cockpit which is a great setup.
Leaving the cockpit as you enter the saloon you are welcomed by the usual flawless Grand Banks timberwork & craftsmanship - including teak and holly flooring (which is featured throughout the whole interior of the boat). An L-shape settee and coffee table is installed to port, looking at a pop up TV (which is wired for Foxtel) to starboard. Two single bucket seats are to starboard either side of the pop-up TV for entertaining a larger crowd indoors.
Moving forward from the saloon you step up three steps to the galley and pilothouse level. A spacious U-shaped well equipped galley, complete with Miele appliances and black granite bench top, is an entertainer's delight. Opposite the galley to starboard you will find a L-shaped settee and dining table. The galley and settee are within close reach of the centreline helm which has excellent vision forward courtesy of the raised pilothouse design. The pilothouse features dual pilothouse doors for ease of access out onto the side decks.
Entry to the lower deck accommodation is via a staircase to starboard of the helm. The forward VIP cabin features an island double bed with its own private head ensuite to port. Immediately aft and to port you will find the twin cabin featuring two athwartship single beds - this cabin uses a head (which acts as the day head & features the ships laundry equipment) across the companionway. Moving aft the full beam midship master offers and island queen bed, private head, plenty of storage and flat screen TV.
For ease of docking 'Grand Seas' is complete with a bow thruster and wired docking remote. Her Cat C-15 power permits a sprint speed approaching 24 knots when required. She is Naiad fin stabilized for comfort.
True to her name 'Grand Seas' has spent her life cruising the Queensland coastline and the particularly beautiful waters of the Whitsunday Islands.
