Vessel Walkthrough
“Initiative” is a rare Europa style 36 Grand Banks. Her lush teak interior is finely finished throughout in the Grand Banks tradition with satin varnish. The cabin sole is varnished teak parquet throughout. The spacious aft deck, comfortable dinette, and galley-up with custom cabinets are perfect for cruising, living aboard and entertaining. The unique and functional layout below features a desk and dressing area with generous storage and a washer/dryer. The master stateroom is forward. The head features a separate shower with teak grating. Wide side decks and a spacious fly bridge with dingy storage make this boat a pleasure to operate and easy to dock. Overhangs provide shade on the aft and side decks. The fly bridge bimini is in excellent condition.
 The Salon is bright and cheerful with direct access to the aft deck, the convenient “Up” galley, and the lower helm with the door to the side deck located forward to starboard.

Broker's Remarks
Initiative is a beautiful boat in every regard. Cosmetically, mechanically, and structurally she appears to be in pristine condition from stem to stern. She has been well loved by her current owner who found her in fresh water in 2006. He has enjoyed many days cruising her in the Bahamas and South Florida and now he is ready to let her next owner continue in that tradition. He will even leave his tools on board. Rarely is such a fine cruising boat available in such literal “Turn Key” condition. Bring your duffle bag and some groceries and she is ready to take you to many great destinations!
