General Details

 The Janie B has been stored in a covered fresh water slip for the past 20 years!  

Updated photos are coming soon!  

Owner has just finished refreshing and refitting this beautiful yacht.  

This vessel is part of an estate sale. 

The Janie B has been used mainly for short family fishing trips to the Gulf of Mexico, and she is set up for doing exactly that.  Her owner added a custom tackle box on the trunk cabin.  This Grand Banks is not currently set up for cruising, but could be updated easily. 

All of the basics are all here:

  • New aluminum tanks (2005)
  • Onan 9kw generator with 14 hours
  • Stainless shafts
  • Dripless shaft seals 
  • All new batteries in 2013
  • Bottom job within last two years
  • Her twin Lehmans run great


The main salon is entered through both side decks; featuring a forward port side galley. The dinette is aft to starboard with a folding leaf table with  "L" shaped seating. The  forward cabin has a v-berth, head and a very large hanging locker.  The aft cabin has a double size berth to starboard and a single berth to port, center-line desk with drawers, drawer storage under each berth, head with separate shower, and access to the aft deck.  There is a small bar located starboard just aft of the helm.  This vessel's interior features a full teak interior and parquet floors that are in excellent condition.

Brokers Remarks
This Grand Banks has had the same owner for the past 20 years.  The boat has been kept in a covered freshwater slip in the small fishing town of St. Marks, FL. The decks and topsides are in need of deep cleaning, but are in great condition thanks to being stored out of the sun and weather.  The interior is very basically appointed, but in good condition.  The engines have been lightly used, and the Onan Generator is in like new condition.  The new aluminum fuel tanks also help make this vessel a fantastic value.   Here are some of the things that the most buyers may want to add to the boat: Chartplotter Window Treatments  V-berth cushions need to be recovered
