The helm console is laid out with two large Raymarine E-120 multifunction displays in mind, and with room left over for the autopilot and VHF close at hand. There were several nice touches to appreciate: A rudder angle indicator is mounted ahead of the wheel, the control for the Sleipner Sidepower bow thruster is easy to reach just ahead of the digital engine controls, and a chart flat is included just to port-a practical feature that Grand Banks owners will simply not do without. The helm is also positioned closer to the windshield than was the case on the 54 SX, and the sense of improved visibility is profound. Three large Exalto windshield washer/wipers controlled by a touchpad should keep visibility forward perfectly clear. The electrical panel, set on the face of a panel just to port of and below the wheel, includes six keyed remote battery switches, so you won't need to enter the engine room to turn on or off all the battery banks. In fact, there is a day hatch in the gorgeous teak-and-holly cabin sole, on the centerline very near the helm, for those who want to drop down and do fluid checks without entering the engine room from the cockpit. Overhead, the optional power-actuated Trent Marine sunroof slides smoothly and quietly open and shut, and includes hideaway Ocean- Air screens to block out unwanted sun when desired.
