Grand Banks 65 Aleutian RP Yacht Description
As the first of the Grand Banks Aleutian series the 65RP raises the bar in every way, with her elegant exterior and her stunning teak-filled salon. Since her first debut the layout has been changed to provide options to a potential owner, and a better standard model improves upon a timeless design. The aft deck is larger and an overhang from the fly bridge has been extended to provide more shade for those relaxing below. Step aboard the 65RP to see the next level in luxury and class.
On the outside of the boat there are plenty of alluring options for sun seekers or wind chasers. The aft deck is large and provides a great place to relax, catch some sun or have lunch. There is a lounge and table facing forward that is a nice space for lunch between dips in the water off the swim platform. The space can be covered with an enclosure during inclement weather. Under power an exciting place to be may be the fly bridge, which has interior access through a stairwell or relax on the foredeck that has lounge seating and feet friendly wood deck panels. After a day outside retire to the salon and staterooms for luxury and comfort.
With the press of a button a large galley cabinet retracts from the ceiling, which is just one of the many clever features that await you inside the 65RP. In the salon the flat screen TV also pops up out of nowhere, saving space and gracefully hiding during non-use. Everywhere you look there is teak and the elegant use of leather upholstery and chic white window coverings. A large settee faces a teak table to port while two other barrel chairs to starboard face the TV. After a day in the sun the comforts of the salon make the 65RP seem like a home away from home. For a bite to eat or a drink, there is a large U-shaped galley in the pilothouse with modern appliances and storage. When the sun is down, the meal is enjoyed and your eyes are heavy go to bed in one of the three staterooms that are as beautiful as the rest of the boat.
