New Model: Grand Banks 54 Heritage EU

The largest of the four Heritage series fleet, the 54 EU finally takes it to the water. The 54EU is built on the same highly-acclaimed Grand Banks designed hull as the 53 Aleutian RP, with its V-drive propulsion system.  The 54 EU's standard three stateroom layout, with a multi-function utility room offers exceptional living and storage space on the lower deck, plus the option to add crew quarters.  The main deck features expansive seating in the salon and fully-covered cockpit, a dedicated dinette across from the mid-ship galley, and a spacious helm area complete with both captain and navigation seats. There is other layouts choices which concern little details; two lower deck, extra main deck, flybridge, and lightly different profile choice from the standard version.  There is also other important options available made to enhance life inboard as comfortable as possible from Seakeeper gyro stabilizers, to a separate washer and dryer. Standard engine power is twin Cummins 600hp which give a 16 knots max and 14 of cruise.  Smaller 500 and 550hp engines are available, as are bigger 715hp units which push top speed up to 21 knots.
