Whether you are motoring around the bay or you're hundreds of miles at sea, quiet single or twin diesel engines are made quieter by the use of special engine room sound insulation. These smooth, heavy-duty engines provide long-range economical operation. GRAND BANK 36: Successor to the wooden 36 introduced in the 1960s, these boats enjoy the improvements and refinements of over 30 years. Known for seaworthiness and a comfortable ride, they are efficiently driven at 8.5 knots. Cruising at 12 knots is easily achieved with larger engines. Available in four deckhouse configurations, each with a number of interior layouts, the Classic features wide side decks, spacious lazarette, aft stateroom, and dinghy storage. The Europa offers one-level living with a main saloon that opens to the deck and a protected cockpit. One or two staterooms are located forward. The Sedan's traditional, open cockpit is a favorite among cruisers who love to fish. For more spacious accommodations, the motoryacht features a large, full width aft stateroom with a walk-around bed, and an equally attractive forward stateroom with optional island bed. The GB36 is a living legend that has been refined to perfection.
