Grand Bank Yachts Expands Aleutian Series

Tuesday, October 05, 2004

Grand Banks Yachts announced the expansion of its flagship Aleutian Series with its first 70-ft. raised pilothouse. The Aleutian 70 improves on already first-class handling, speed, stability, and accommodations of the 64 Aleutian.

Primary among the improvements is a spacious cockpit that is ideal for entertaining, lounging or fishing. The interior defines space and luxury with three private staterooms, crew's quarters, four separate heads, and a salon with crown molding details. Uncommon in a yacht of this size, anticipated top speeds are expected to exceed 25 knots (@ 2300 RPM). The extended hull length also means better handling and increased speeds from its "little" brother.

"The decision to build the 70 Aleutian is a direct response to the success of the 64," says Neil McCurdy, VP Sales for Grand Banks. "The techniques and research used to create this Series will help all other boats in the GB line."

First offered in 1999 at 64 ft., the Aleutian, with its distinctive flared bow, raised pilothouse, and sizeable living quarters helped the boat charge to the forefront of luxurious blue-water cruisers. The 70 Aleutian is another milestone for Grand Banks Yachts. Decades of experience building and improving world-class cruisers is reflected in the superior style, handling and design of the company's largest yacht.

With the first hull expected to arrive in North America in June 2004, Grand Banks is excited to announce the beginning of construction on hull number two.
