1991 Grand Banks 46 Classic

Wakefield, Rhode Island


This Grand Banks 46 Classic features the sought after galley up, 3-Stateroom layout and is powered by twin CAT 3208TA diesels.  Always maintained and updated by her experienced and knowledgeable owners, she's in great shape for the next adventure.  Professional varnish just completed (July, 2023) on all surfaces.  See the full listing for a complete list of recent improvements.    

Her owners are moving to the west coast so are reluctantly parting with this very nice GB46.  If layout, condition, and quality are on your list, you must see this boat in person.  Please contact us for further information and to arrange a personal inspection.

From Grand Banks;

The Grand Banks 46 Classic is the perfect size for many cruising families. She offers plenty of interior space, and yet remains easily manageable for a crew of two. Running the boat from the flybridge, the captain has superb visibility and total command of the ship thanks to the carefully planned steering and navigational area. Wide, walk-around decks and aft cockpit allow for the crew's safe, secure movement while at sea and during docking. In the large cockpit lazarette, in the seat lockers, on the aft cabin roof, and in the forward deck locker, are places for fenders, cleaning supplies, a dinghy, an outboard motor, power cables, dock lines, and more. In the saloon, comfortable seat lockers and a built-in teak table create a friendly and secure atmosphere underway or at anchor. The main saloon offers a panoramic view. An inside steering and navigational station provides a comfortable, dry haven for the helmsperson. The large owner's aft cabin features a walkaround, queen-sized bed. The engine room, with over five-feet of headroom, has ample space for the generator, refrigeration compressor, and air conditioning equipment.
