Grand Banks Yachts says the Grand Banks 54 will make its European debut this fall at the Cannes Yachting Festival in France.
The Grand Banks 54 has a new, semi-displacement hull that’s powered by a pair of 725-horsepower Volvo Penta D11s. The builder says that the yacht’s range exceeds 1,200 nautical miles at 10 knots. Top speed is 25 knots.
“The new Grand Banks 54 is an incredibly versatile platform, with quality and performance second to none,” Mark Richards, CEO of Grand Banks, stated in a press release. “It encapsulates our commitment to building the ultimate yachts on the water today, and with our focus on fuel efficiency and sustainability, I think it will come to define what is expected of yachting in the years to come.”
Construction is composite with a fully infused fiberglass hull, and infused carbon-fiber decks and superstructure.
“We’ve moved to infused carbon fiber from the deck up, using the highest-quality vinylester resin available to ensure the durability of our yachts,” he added.
Hull No. 1 of the GB54 has a two-stateroom, galley-down layout (the standard configuration). Owners also can choose a galley-up version that opens up space for a third stateroom belowdecks.
How much fuel does the GB54 burn at its 25-knot cruising speed? 57 gallons per hour, according to Grand Banks Yachts.
