General Details

If you are familiar with Grand Banks, you will know that they are renowned for building very fine boats.  This 36 Sedan Trawler is the kind of boat that earned that reputation.  It is rare sedan model (rather than the more common aft cabin) that is as tight and dry as the day it was new.

Of course, not all credit can go to the builder.  In this case, the boat has also benefited from an exceptional owner.  He has spent the last several years treating her to the kind of tender loving care that most people waste on their children.

The hull has been taken back to bare wood, epoxied and painted; the cabin house, windows and decks have received similar treatment; and the twin engines have had their injectors rebuilt and heat-exchangers cleaned out.  Oh, and did I mention the new electronics?

Put simply, everything that needed to be done has been done.  The boat is turnkey.

PRICE REDUCTION OF $10,000.  Call now before she goes!.

Hull & Deck
The hull from the rubrail down was taken down to bare wood, given 3 coats of Smiths penetrating expoxy, and then repainted in 2009.   The marine ply of the subdecks has been replaced where necessary, and the teak decks were fully recaulked.  The decks are inspected regulary and any loose plugs replaced. The windows in the deck house have been replaced with new stainless steel frames, and new safety glass in 2008.  The cabin sole was taken down to bare wood, and given 15 coats of varnish.  The boat was tented and fumigated in 2009 (although no termites were found.)  There is no sign of dry rot.  And the brightwork shines!
