2014 Grand Banks 54 Heritage EU
The Grand Banks 54 Heritage EU represents a smart option for those who are looking for a practical yacht for weekend getaways or for longer family journeys.
As far as design is concerned, the 54EU features the same GB-designed hull as the 53 Aleutian RP, with its V-drive propulsion system. The standard engine is a twin Cummins QSM-11 - 715 Mhp which can propel you to a maximum speed of 20.74 Kn at 2,530 rpm with a cruise speed of 17.21 Kn at 2,300 rpm.

2014 Grand Banks 54 Heritage EU Features and Benefits:
Spacious Engine Room
The 54EU is distinguished in its class by a large, meticulously designed engine room with up to two meters of headroom. Walk-around engines are framed by steel rails, with twin fuel filters, seacocks and other related components neatly aligned for easy access and service. All systems are clearly marked and smartly arranged, with an abundance of room for aftermarket equipment and storage.
Optional Aft Action Controls
At the owner’s option, a third set of controls for throttles and bow thrusters can be installed starboard-side in the cockpit against the aft bulkhead. This option is great for stern-to docking and other close quarter maneuvering that requires wide visibility aftward.
With wide-open spaces and commanding views, this area features a large L-settee surrounding a handmade teak table, with a second settee to starboard. Options here include a fiberglass hardtop with built-in lighting, electric grill, and second helm seat to starboard. A powerful davit is also available as optional equipment, along with a tender and outboard motor package.
Storage & Workroom
Boasting over six feet of headroom, the utility room can serve a variety of purposes ranging from a walk-in closet and laundry center, to a storage and pantry space for serious long-range cruisers. It also features a workbench area and has an option for a two-drawer refrigerator/freezer unit, plus a separate washer and dryer.
The helm station of the 54EU features a classic handmade teak wheel and is flanked by loads of room for electronics, a Stidd® helm seat that can be paired with an optional second chair to port, plus port and starboard doors that offer quick and easy access to side decks. There is also excellent visibility, including clear views all the way aft to the transom.
Generous Galley & Dining Area
The smartly-designed galley features a microwave convection oven, four drawers for freezer and refrigeration, a cooktop with exhaust blower, and abundant storage - including plenty of built-in storage for plates, flatware, wine and bar glasses. A large dinette sits to port around an inlaid-teak table that can comfortably seat five or more.
Forward Seating Area
Foredeck seating takes on a whole new meaning with the new 54EU. Up on the bow you will find a U-shaped bench seat, table and storage lockers, making for a great feature of this new model.
Full-Beam Master Stateroom
The 54EU features three generous staterooms, with a curved stairwell that descends from the helm to lower-level accommodations. The master cabin is open to natural light and views through two oversize portlights. An extra-large queen berth, luxurious en-suite head, exceptional drawer and hanging storage - plus easy access to additional storage in the utility room - add to the feeling of space and comfort in a yacht of this size.
Optional Flybridge Sunpad
The 54EU is the first Grand Banks model to offer an optional flybridge sunpad. This sunpad comes complete with adjustable recliner backrests, storage area, removable vinyl-covered closed cell foam cushions, drink holders and an acrylic cover.
The large cockpit area is topped with teak and offers easy access through a transom gate that features a simple but ingenious magnetic lock. Built-in settee and an expansive teak table with leave are standard, as are storage lockers and a retractable hot/cold transom shower. A large gas-assist hatch in the cockpit sole offers easy, well-designed step-down access to the spacious engine room below.
