  • Standard twin 900-horsepower Volvo D13 diesels are projected to provide a top speed of 31 knots
  • Grand Banks #60skylounge will be on display at 2018 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

Right on the heels of the successful debut at 2018 Newport International Boat Show, the new GB60 Skylounge will be on display at 2018 #fortlauderdaleinternationalboatshow (October 31 – November 4).

The versatility of the latest model from Grand Banks Yachts offers cruisers in both cold and warm climates the ability to operate the boat from an enclosed upper pilothouse. The option also expands accommodations on the main deck level while providing an additional living area above on the bridge deck with unobstructed 360° panoramic views. This is all achieved without compromising the 60’s graceful lines or performance.

Long distance cruisers will appreciate the additional social area afforded by the enclosed Skylounge, which allows for another settee and table abaft the twin Stidd helm seats. The ability for family and guests to spread out while on a passage only improves onboard comfort. The L-shaped settee can also serve as a watch berth during a night passage, while a day head provides another element of convenience. The arrangement allows for a dedicated external area to secure up to a 4.2 meter tender and the standard Steelhead davit.
