Neff Yacht Sales / Used 31 foot GRAND BANKS  Trawler - Dulcinea



1987 • 31' (9.73 m) • Trawler
United States

$130,000 USD

The 1987 Grand Banks 32 is the second Grand Banks designed by Kenneth Smith of Lyme, CT, and the third and final version of the Grand Banks 32. She is intended to be the true long-distance cruiser. She carries 220 gallons of fuel, and with the Ford Lehman engine, she cruises at 7.5 knots, burning 2.2 gallons per hour, with a cruising range of 1500 miles!

This Grand Banks 32 Sedan has had only 2 owners since new in 1987 and is the rare low maintenance model with Gelcoated transom (no teak), stainless steel chocks and cleats, and stainless steel safety rails. Grand Banks 32 "Dulcinea's" owners have kept her under a roof for the last 19 years, thus greatly reducing depreciation from the UV rays. The cruising life of Grand Banks 32 Dulcinea has been exclusively in the temperate waters of the Chesapeake Bay, which has kept her bottom in better condition than a southern boat. With an excellent maintenance and upgrade history, low hours on a rebuilt Ford Lehman engine, and covered storage for 2/3 of her life, Grand Banks 32 Dulcinea has more life left in her than any other boat of this vintage.
