“Everything I saw walking through the Grand Banks 54 illustrates actual strength and serious intelligence in construction,” Yachting previously reported

“The 54 is the kind of yacht that begs for a ride in the rough stuff, but unfortunately, I didn’t have challenging conditions when I ran it… Between its 8-degree transom deadrise, warped semidisplacement hull form, and Humphree interceptor and stabilizer system, the 54 cut through 2-footers with virtually zero effect. Paralleling other boat wakes and taking them on the beam produced a similar absence of any response.”

Grand Banks managed to blend long-range cruising with sporty performance, and a luxurious and accommodating interior on its GB54. The builder currently has a low-hour 2023 build listed for sale  and is asking shy of $3.4 million.

Highpoint II is powered by twin 725 hp Volvo Penta D11 diesels, which come with extended warranties through April 2028 or 2,000 hours. With Grand Banks’ V-Warp hull technology, the GB54 cruises comfortably around 25 knots with a top speed of about 30 knots. At 10 knots, the yacht’s cruising range is approximately 1,000 nautical miles. Bow and stern thrusters, and the Humphree active-fin stabilization system enhance the ride and boathandling experience.

The salon has a warm and inviting interior, aided by neutral tones in the fabric and sisal carpet, teak and natural light from nearly 360 degrees of glass. L-shaped settees flank the aft lounge area, while the settee to port has a teak folding table in case guests want to dine inside or even play cards.

The helm station is forward and to starboard with a companion bench seat directly across, which has a built-in wine cooler underneath. There are two Stidd helm seats, a teak instrument panel and a Garmin electronics package.
