1971 Grand Banks Alaskan Trawler

San Pedro, United States


This two boat owner is currently injured and unable to enjoy his 51' Formosa Sailboat or this incredible Trawler. Buy one or both but he has instructed us to sell them both right now!

The Grand Banks Alaskan trawler represents Arthur DeFever's True Classic yacht Design at it's best. Grand Banks Strong, Sea Kindly, and her unmatched visual aesthetics. Over the years, this model has become a very popular design based on the large Pilot House, exceptional galley and salon, spacious cockpit, and overall quality. The Portuguese wing Bridge and near walk in engine room are also high points to consider in this yacht. A fantastic live aboard and a solid as a rock traveler. She  has a very Spacious interior. Heat exchanger just gone through and new water pump impellers installed. Economical twin Lehman's and a 750 gallon capacity gives her range to go to Baja or Seattle with fuel to spare.The Sea of Cortez? Perhaps The San Juans or Alaska ( Her namesake ! )?
