Grand Banks 59 RP, ESCAPE – A staggeringly nice motor yacht
May 22nd, 2018
When you think of a classic semi-displacement motor-yacht, you think of Grand Banks. Solid and quiet under way, timelessly elegant, engineered with precision, and fitted with a hand-crafted interior executed to the highest standard.
This three-owner 59 RP is immaculately presented, belying her 2007 birthday. She is powered by the big Caterpillar C18 option for a 25 knot top speed, with only 800 hours run, and is a delight to handle thanks to her proportional hydraulic thruster package.

With her raised pilot-house, the helm, crew (and even the cook) are all afforded a fantastic view out. This Owner has re-modelled some interior features: installing a twin drawer dishwasher at the galley, re-trimming the upholstery for the saloon and wheelhouse, and replacing the master cabin linings. In addition, the crew area has been improved to allow better accommodation aft, and a total of twelve berths on board.
There is far too much to mention here… She really does deserve to be seen by anyone seeking a true classic with plenty of get up and go!
