Construit de 1973 au début des années 1975 à 64 exemplaires au chantier de Hong Kong.

The Grand Banks 48 was a luxurious and seaworthy offshore cruiser that was a miser on diesel fuel. 

She was graciously appointed with a handcrafted interior of golden Burmese teak. She had teak ceilings in the forward cabins and a master stateroom with teak parquet cabin soles throughout. The 11′ x 16′ fly bridge deck had a duplicate helmsman’s station and plenty of seating. 

The richly appointed main saloon was an elegant living and entertaining center that was accented with modern decorator fabrics and fine teak cabinet work. Furnishings included a complete bar with ice maker, settee, table and chairs, and more than 12′ of counter space in the fully equipped galley with refrigerator, freezer, stove and oven. 

The owner’s aft stateroom was a spacious 14′ x 14′ with an extra large double bed, teak desk, L-shaped settee, coffee table, bureau, full-length mirror, 8′ hanging locker and transform-wide shelf with storage under. 

The large engine room was amidships with standing headroom and plenty of working space, with more than enough room to service the twin diesel engines.
