Speed + range + efficiency

Today’s Grand Banks are designed to provide higher speeds when needed, while also delivering fuel economy - and comfortable cruising over long distances - when moving at a slower pace. The modified deep-V hull of the 53RP is designed for stability and comfort at slow cruising speeds, with an effortless transition to plane, great tracking down waves, and dry conditions on deck. Our use of electronically controlled diesel engines gives you greater performance and flexibility than ever before, while dramatically reducing smoke, odor and engine idle noise.
