65' Grand Banks 65 Aleutian RP



“COCONUT” is a 2009 65′ Grand Banks Raised Pilothouse design and hull #03 in the Aleutian series from Grand Banks.

Aside from the fact that she’s one of the largest Grand Banks ever, the Aleutian is faster and far more stylish than any of her predecessors.

The original model that launched the Aleutian Series has been redesigned, refreshed and restyled, with an added foot of length and a long list of new features. Exceptional interior layouts provide more and better options for living and entertaining. A more spacious aft deck features dual wing doors and an enclosure that protects the outside dining area from harsh weather, while opening easily to let in the sun. The flybridge overhang has also been extended further aft to provide more protection from the elements. The 65RP also features port and starboard-side pilothouse doors, easier engine room access through a new port-side door, and a host of other performance and luxury features. What hasn't changed is her top-performing Fexas-designed hull, making the 65RP the best for comfort and stability among blue-water cruisers.

Built on an efficient semi-displacement hull with a deep keel, cored hullsides, and prop pockets, the Aleutianu2019s handsome raised pilothouse profile is accented by a stepped sheer and a distinctive Portuguese bridge. She offers a three-stateroom, three-head floor-plan with cruise quarters and crew head. The galley is on the pilothouse level, several steps up from the salon with its luxurious teak furnishings and Corian counters. The engine room can be accessed from the port side-deck aft main access door, the aft and centerline swim-step door entrance, or emergency access in master stateroom. Additional features include a huge flybridge, wide, secure side decks, tremendous fuel capacity, and watertight engine room bulkheads and doors. Twin CAT 1,000 HP C18 diesels cruise the 65 Aleutian comfortably and efficiently at 12-15 knots, with plenty of room for speeds in the high teens to low 20 knots.
