New Model: Grand Banks 76 Aleutian RP

Grand Banks presented the new 76 Aleutian RP in Italy at one of the largest World shows Genoa, its new two and a half deck flagship which extends this renowned builder size by four feet.  The 76 Aleutian RP is in fact based on the previous largest Grand Banks, the 72 of the same range, which now features six models starting at 53 feet.  Large spacious area characterize the new Grand Banks flagship with a split level saloon, separating dining and relaxing, from the pilot house and galley located on the raised half deck part.  Below is space for the cabin area, featuring four guest rooms, including the spacious full beam owners stateroom to midships.  There is also a choice of having the fourth cabin replaced by an office for the owner.  For the 76 Aleutian RP, Grand Banks also offers a wide variety of six engine choices from Cat and MTU, starting at 836 till 1723hp.  For those who like to go that extra faster the obvious choice would be the big Cats of 1723hp which give a top speed of 31 knots and a cruise of 25.
