    One of the many advantages of the motoryacht design is the full beam aft deck located above the master stateroom. This area has proven to be one of the finest gathering areas for entertaining, relaxing or cruising. The aft deck is just steps away from the flybridge and is easily accessed from the wide lower decks without needing ladders or awkward single steps. In the salon located on the starboard aft side is a long "L" shaped settee and the traditional Grand Banks teak yacht table. Across is a portside desk teak chair, stereo and television mounted above. Built in storage and a door to the side decks. Galley is up and to port with a large sink, custom granite counter top, hidden 3 burner Princess electric cooktop and Norcold refrigerator. Just opposite is the lower helm station and door to starboard side decks. Directly behind the helm is an optional Norcold refrigerator, custom storage locker and granite counter top. The open bright salon makes for a great entertainment area. The aft stateroom, like the entire boat, displays the beautiful teak joinery for which Grand Banks is known the world over. Custom Brazilian Koa wood sole, built in furniture, cabinets and hand crafted moldings are blended with durable fabrics to create the timeless yacht look and feel. The master has the popular island queen berth layout with private owner's head on port side and separate stall shower located to starboard. The forward guest cabin features a v-berth, vanity, wardrobe, 6 drawers, reading lights and an overhead hatch. To port is the forward head and features a shower, sink, mirror, storage and counter space. The mid-stateroom features pocket doors, reading lights, extra storage, wardrobe & custom bookcases. The flybridge offers excellent visibility when underway or maneuvering dockside. A pair of back to back double seats provides generous seating for eight with storage beneath. On the aft starboard side of the flybridge are storage boxes with cushions. The bridge console has full instrumentation, with handy storage on port side with two large Dometic refrigerator/ freezers. The timeless handcrafted teak-spoked steering wheel: a Grand Banks hallmark is positioned to the starboard side with Morse engine controls and a Furuno navigation display.
