This vison of beauty and perfection is a computer-rendered illustration of the yacht that will soon rewrite the rules of long-distance cruising. Thanks to the super-sleek lines of its V-Warp hull, the GB85 won’t so much as ‘hit the water’ as slide effortlessly into it at the end of the year. And while its maiden voyage will leave a surprisingly flat and shallow wake, we anticipate the yacht’s progress will be followed by a tsunami of interest, commentary and debate in the marine press and among the boating community.
The GB85 is not just a bigger Grand Banks. It’s a whole new class of boat. Technically, at just over 87 feet, the 85 has inched into the ‘Superyacht’ category. But as well as breaking this class barrier, our exquisite new vessel is set to break every record for performance, efficiency and range in any category you care to mention.
On the GB85, space is not at a premium, it’s a luxury. The extended length and 22ft beam of this yacht enable us to offer the widest range of internal configurations and amenities for all on board – guests and crew. For long distance cruising, the ’85 offers a rare combination of sociability and privacy.
Our focus in recent years has seen us move to the forefront of speed and efficiency, while perfecting our construction techniques to deliver better yachts than ever before. Our goal is to deliver the best ride of any yacht, of any size, while also bringing the trademark comfort and style that have always been synonymous with the Grand Banks name.
