Grand Banks’ GB60

The GB60’s lines embody the balance and proportion that are integral to a yacht’s design.

Grand Banks Yachts is set to debut the GB60, a 65-foot cruiser with 900-hp Volvo Penta D13 engines and Twin Disc BP300 bow and stern thrusters. An exciting addition to the company’s fleet, the GB60’s lines embody the balance and proportion that are integral to a yacht’s design. Its generous beam offers ample room for three staterooms and two full heads. Seating abounds in the salon, aft deck and on the spacious flybridge. The GB60 will be delivered with Twin Disc’s MGX 5096A QuickShift marine transmissions, Express Joystick System (EJS) at three stations, dual EC300 Power Commander Electronic Controls with Express Positioning and the new Digital Thruster Panel. This provides the helmsman with effortless fingertip control. Whether pulling into a slip with a tide running, spinning the boat on its own axis in mid-channel or crabbing sideways away from a fuel dock, the GB60 offers precise maneuverability.

UPDATE: the GB60 has made its debut at the Newport Boat Show!
