Folks tend to equate “Grand Banks” with “trawlers,” but the company has come a long way since introducing leisurely, low-speed powerboats back in the 1960s. In those days, a trawler – more properly, “trawler yacht,” since they were really nothing like a true, round-bilged, fat-bodied trawler – was the last refuge for aging sailors. Not so today: Grand Banks builds relatively fast boats that can go slow if you want. The builder's displacement-speed boats have been quietly dropped from the Grand banks line. One of the company's boats that we have always especially liked is the 65 Aleutian Raised Pilothouse. This is the model that launched the Aleutian Series, but that has more recently been redesigned and restyled. She looks like a displacement LRC, but she can get up and hustle.
