Captain's Report

Grand Banks 60 Skylounge:
New Direction for a Great Old Name

Grand Banks 60 Skylounge
A look at the main deck on the new Grand Banks 60 Skylounge.

The main-deck layout of the Grand Banks 60 Skylounge with the galley placed forward shows off the boat’s excellent – and innovative – use of space. Note there is an L-shaped settee in the cockpit of this layout as well as a booth dinette or a second lounge area with cocktail table, an alternative design from the boat we tested, adding entertainment space aft. Lavish use of bleached teak, beautifully finished and fitted – a company trademark – have to be seen to be fully appreciated. More...

Main Deck Master Surrounded by Glass

Ocean Alexander 112 Tri-Level Motor Yacht
Ocean Alexander 112 Tri-Level Motor Yacht

This picture of the master stateroom speaks for itself. But what is not seen is the master head of the Ocean Alexander 112 Tri-Level Motor Yacht. It is four steps down the companionway seen in the background of this photo. Once there, a marble Jacuzzi tub forward on the centerline frames the space, with his-and-hers above-counter wash basins to port and starboard. A water closet with a bidet is to port, and to starboard is a large, totally marble-lined shower stall for two with bench seat and glass door. See it now...
