Grand Banks 54
Grand Banks continues its bold foray into redefining the future of efficient long-range cruising with the release of the Grand Banks 54, the second addition to the new Grand Banks family series. This beautifully designed luxury yacht comes in both flybridge and enclosed skylounge configurations, with either upper or lower galley layout options that accommodate four to five people overnight. The GB54 has a highly efficient cruise speed of 25 knots, with a fuel burn of 57 gal, making her a true performer.
We have designed the layouts of the yacht to offer flexibility without compromising practicality or usability. Available in your choice of two or three stateroom layouts, the accommodations are only a few steps down from the single-level entertaining spaces, making maneuvering around the vessel effortless.
The Grand Banks 54 is constructed using the latest methods of vacuum infusion to achieve strength and weight control. Pairing seamlessly with her advanced construction is the remarkable craftsmanship and attention to detail found throughout the entire yacht.
The Grand Banks 54’s versatile design is a culmination of everything we have learned from designing and building the Grand Banks 60 along with the rest of our range over decades of production.
The Grand Banks 54 is constructed using the latest methods of vacuum infusion to achieve strength and weight control. Our construction techniques employ the benefits of modified epoxy vinylester resins that define durability and improve osmosis and blistering.
Pairing seamlessly with her advanced construction is the remarkable craftsmanship and attention to detail found throughout the entire yacht. The Grand Banks marque defines excellence with its fine timber joinery and has carried this quality through every facet of the boat from the bulkheads and fixed furniture that is fused and bonded to both the deck and hull, to the highly engineered and finished engine room. Beauty and quality are not just skin deep.
Impressive Ride Quality
The most impressive feature of the new Grand Banks 54 is her soft quiet ride quality. Through the fused nature of our bulkheads we achieve a semi-monocoque torsion box result that is stiff underway and free from any rattles or creaking. The rest of the ride is largely thanks to the combination of our efficient and high-performance hull shape, and the careful balancing both longitudinally and vertically, of the large-mass components. The deck and superstructure are infused carbon fiber that minimize weight aloft, resulting in a lower center of gravity.
The fine entry of the stem splits the waves, making each ride smooth as can be. Also, the soft shoulder of the midsection rolls the water away and eliminates hull slapping. The hull presents gorgeous tumblehome above, then continues to warp beneath the waterline into a relatively flat aft section with 8 degrees of deadrise. This provides incredible form stability at all speeds and rest, and results in an astonishingly subtle wake that further demonstrates the efficiency of the design.
