Representing Grand Banks’ return to its roots of building long-distance cruisers, the new Grand Banks 60 (66′ 10″ LOA, 19′ 2″ beam) has a range well over 2,000 nautical miles at 10 knots or can be pushed to more than 30 with the 900-hp Volvo Penta D13 engines. Coupling these with the bow and stern thrusters in a joystick-controlled system allows for a really cool feature: Express Positioning, which holds the 60 in place by GPS.

A well-protected flybridge and aft deck, wide side decks and high bulwarks show the boat to be a true ocean-going vessel. A single level encompasses the salon, aft galley, and lower helm. Below are three staterooms with the master in the most comfortable position amidships.
