47 Classic 2011

TILLMAN - $815,000

Sales Rep: Julee Jackson
Phone: 772-473-1768

Grand Banks did a complete redesign of its extremely popular Classic model and reintroduced it in 2007.  Some of its new features include a full size entrance door from the aft trunk cabin landing, a mid-level galley and a luxurious queen suite forward and aft.  Both staterooms have large en suite heads and large showers.  These new features give the 47 Classic an incredibly spacious interior that feels much larger than her true size.  The 47 Classic has more usable interior space than her sistership, the 47 Europa.  There is also the luxury of having complete privacy for both staterooms as they are not squeezed together as in the Europa style. 

TILLMAN was highly customized during her build with meticulous attention given to the smallest detail.  One example is the redesigned more usable flybridge with 2 large facing settees, 3 power STIDD helmseats, and custom sized solid teak table that can seat 8 for dinner.  She was designed with ultimate luxury in a more manageable space with no expense spared.  Tillman has had competent high level professional care since her arrival in the US.  She represents excellent value compared to cost of new.

TILLMAN offers:

CAT C-9 Acert 567hp engines with Side-Power bow thruster and hard wired remote controls, all services up to date Naiad Multi Sea II stabilizers with 6' fins Inverter Over $120,000 in original electronics Novurania 335 DL dinghy with Honda 25hp 4-stroke outboard motor  Washer/Dryer Miele dishwasher Custom exterior stainless steel hand, safety and handgrip rails which were enlarged & heightened for safety and ease in getting around deck Custom designed flybridge Custom interior cabinetry Tempurpedic custom mattresses  Maintenance coats on all exterior varnish, July 2020

The Grand Banks Classic has received a very useful update by eliminating the port side door and moving it to the aft trunk cabin landing.  This enables very easy access to the salon and also to the flybridge.  This is especially convenient when the boat is underway and you're taking sandwiches to the bridge.  No wind to contend with. 

Entrance to salon is aft down 4 steps.  The salon is spacious with L-Settee on stbd, the teak dining table with fold-out leaves is in left and teak cabinetry with custom TV lift and Samsung thin flatscreen TV on port, lowers out of sight when not viewing.  A very comfortable barrel chair is forward on port with custom granite topped teak cabinet that houses stereo equipment and was custom sized for wine glass tumblers. 

The lower helm is on stbd with custom electric STIDD captain chair and teak cabinetry as its base.  There is a stbd helm door for access to side deck. 

Down two steps is the mid-level U-shaped galley with dishwasher and two large pantry storage areas. 

Down two more steps is the spacious forward island queen suite.  A door to the en suite head is toward stbd.  The head features a thick glass fold-out shower that's quite large.  When folded back in place the head is roomy enough to comfortably dress in.  Another side door leads to the companionway and allows a double function of the day head. 

Aft from salon is the master suite with en suite head.  Two solid teak doors provide privacy and are a Grand Banks tradition found on all Classics.  The berth is a full queen with custom Tempurpedic mattress, as is found in the forward berth.  There is a large walk-in hanging locker on forward port bulkhead and access to en suite head on stbd.
