To my eye, they succeeded in doing so. The 60’s lines have that classic Grand Banks appeal, while also managing to retain a certain amount of sleekness. What’s more, that added interior space on the flybridge level makes the boat that much more usable. Twin Stidd helm seats highlight the captain’s station, while large windows offer near 360-degree views to everyone on the deck. There’s also an L-shaped settee aft and to port and a dayhead aft and to starboard, for extra convenience. A standard Steelhead davit aft of that raises and lowers a RIB.
