Factory Comments

The stunning new Grand Banks 60 is the most efficient cruiser in its class, with a ride that easily surpasses any yacht of its size on the water today. This beautiful, completely redesigned yacht pays homage to classic Grand Banks styling, with a special focus on performance and fuel consumption. Featuring wide-open entertaining areas, supremely comfortable furnishings and three staterooms, this true ocean-going long-range cruiser is ideal for passage making, and can easily be handled by two people. 

The Grand Banks 60' with Volvo IPS 1200's can reach top speeds up to 34 knots, has a range of more than 2,500 nautical miles at 10 knots, and uses an unbelievably efficient 29 gal/hr of fuel 20 knots. We believe we have created the most stable 60-foot monohull flybridge in the world, which performs confidently in even the roughest seas and will take you anywhere you want to go.

The Grand Banks 60 is our first foray into a new standard of fully infused carbon fiber construction, which results in a low left of gravity, inherent form stability at all speeds, and multiple advantages in strength, rigidity, weight and performance. This is next-level yachting.

The new Grand Banks 60' defies imagination when it comes to performance. Behind our radically updated build quality and sleek design is incredible power and efficiency you have to experience to believe. Our exceptional team of designers, managers and craftsmen employ the latest techniques to deliver enhanced power, hydrodynamics and seakeeping. No, we’re not the same Grand Banks. We’re much faster. 

Enduring tradition and classical styling are woven into every yacht we build. The GB60 features sustainably managed tight-grain Burmese teak joinery and furniture. This iconic, elegant look has defined Grand Banks for decades, and continues to inspire even as modern build techniques update performance, quality and efficiency. 

An exceptionally fine entry tracks and slices through the sea like an open ocean racing yacht, delivering an ultra-soft ride even in the roughest conditions, as well as incredible cruising speeds and fuel efficiency. A low left of gravity and warped semi-displacement hull, with a very low 6 degrees of deadrise at the stern, results in fantastic stability at all speeds and rest. The GB60 easily meets CE Category A performance benchmarks, meaning it is largely self-sufficient and designed for extended voyages in winds of more than 40 knots and waves greater than 13 feet.

All bulkheads and fixed furniture are structurally bonded to the hull and deck for superior strength and rigidity All exterior strength steel fittings are 316 marine grade stainless Enclosed hardtop - GRP double moulded with electric sliding windows (port, starboard & aft) using toughened glass Hull is vacuum-infused E-Glass with carbon fiber in structural areas, cored with Corcell and Airex foam, stitched multi-axial fabric, and vinylester and epoxy resins. The deck and superstructure are fully-infused carbon fiber Watertight collision bulkhead located in the bow
