Key features of 2006 GRAND BANKS 72 ALEUTIAN RP “LLANO DEL MAR” include:
The carpeted stairway to the staterooms is in the helm area, conveniently located near the starboard Freeman door to the side decks. The foot of the stairs opens into the main companionway and directly in front of the stairs is the office, with its pocket doors securely opened to reveal the desk, settee (which converts to a double bed), end table and ensuite head. Going forward along the companionway there is a day head and shower, and the door leading to a large bright guest stateroom with a queen berth and direct access to the head and shower. Heading aft from the foot of the stairs, one finds a closet with separate washer and dryer units, and the door to the full beam master stateroom.
While the helm deck and galley have a teak and holly sole, the staterooms and companionway are carpeted there is chilled-water air conditioning with individual controls throughout the vessel. The crews quarters area is between the master and engine room, and is accessed via a door on the port side deck or through the engine room door int he aft cockpit. There are over and under berths, a head and shower, and a Sub Zero unit.
On the main level is the salon. Up three steps from the salon is the open galley to port with overhead cabinets running the length of the forward and aft lower cabinets. The forward cabinet is on an actuator that will raise it to enhance the already exceptional visibility from the lower helm. Opposite the galley is a cabinet housing additional Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer drawers, and the interior stairway to the flybridge. Forward of the galley is the helm, and outboard to port is the dinette. The galley, lower helm, and heads all have a teak and holly sole.
The up and upen U-shaped galley on the pilothouse level has tremendous visibility and easy access to the salon, the lower helm, dinette, and to the flybridge. The storage space, cabinets and name brand appliances will not disappoint the chef!
Located to port and aft and features a large shower
The aft cockpit is perfect for cooking and entertaining outside. To starboard is the oversized covered BBQ and to port is another cabinet with a sink, and between the two is the main door to the engine room. There is a transom door to the wide swim platform, and to port and starboard are stairs up to the aft deck. The roomy aft deck has two built-in settees and a varnished teak table with a maple inlay, and four high gloss Lewis Drake chairs, Bose speakers, along with two lounge chairs for the foredeck.
Two beautiful wood doors separate the aft deck area from the large walk around side decks which lead further forward to the Portuguese walkway. There is also a ladder from the aft deck to the flybridge. An outlet for the remote controls is in the port aft deck settee for ease of maneuvering in tight spaces.
The distinctively flared bow, which keeps the topsides dry, table, and comfortable, was designed by the renowned Tom Fexas, and built to the highest standards by Grand Banks to be safe and reliable in all sea conditions.
