General Details


Renowned for its seakindly operation, the Classic Grand Banks 36 is emblematic of the phrase "proper yacht." Her semi-displacement design has a full length keel, providing excellent protection for the prop and rudder. Extremely economical to operate, turning 1900 rpms she will cruise at 8 knots burning just under 3 gallons per hour! Freedom's owners, have decided to retire from boating, and have offered their vessel to the market in excellent condition. Featuring a dependable, healthy 135 hp Ford Lehman engine, generator, nice electronics and reverse cycle heat and air, allowing for a comfortable cruise to the Bahamas, Florida Keys, or the Great Loop.

Easy to show, and will not disappoint!

A comfortable L-shaped convertible settee is aft to starboard with a proper yacht table with drop leaves and liqour storage beneath. The bench seat opposite is to port, and both the settee and seat has recently been reupholstered. Nice! All drapes are new Sunbrella and provide UV protection. Doors both port and starboard provide convenient access to walkaround side decks. From the salon, down and aft three steps is the master stateroom, featuring a large double berth to starboard, and a single to port. Four screened, sliding windows and opening hatch directly to aft deck provide ample natural light and ventilation. Ensuite head with shower and vanity is forward to starboard. The dinghy deck and flybridge is accessed via steps to port. The large flybridge features a bimini top and accommodates four comfortably on back-to-back bench seats and tons of space for other chairs or lounges.

Ideally suited to the cruising couple or small family, "Freedom" is perfectly proportioned. Her layout is well-considered and eminently practical. She is solidly constructed, seaworthy, comfortable and cozy. Her warm, all teak interior is most inviting, and her economy of operation just makes sense as fuel prices continue to climb.
