New Model: Grand Banks 72 Aleutian SC

Grand Banks has launched the 72 Aleutian SC, a further development of the 72 hull and delivered in fifteen units in its RP layout. This new 72 Aleutian SC takes many similarities from the RP model, although its waterline length is about two feet longer. The main difference is the flash aft deck which replaces the lower fisher style layout to stern of the famed RP model. The above picture shows the second 72 Aleutian SC which was launched in the first quarter of this year, following the making of the first in the fall of 2009. Latest Aleutian series model of raised pilothouse Explorer Yachts, the 72 Aleutian SC joins the RP sharing top flagship status as Grand Banks largest and most luxurious yacht in the fleet. The 72 SC key differences from the RP version is to aft where instead of the open lower cockpit with stairs up to the main deck level, the new flagship aft area extends from the salon to the transom on one level creating a wonderfully large outdoor living covered by the extended flybridge above. In addition, the 72SC will also offer an option of a four guest stateroom layout, in lieu of the standard three cabin version. Two crew berths are located to midship
