Long Range Cruiser - Grand Banks - 52ft LOA - NO RESERVE in Savannah, Georgia


I have decided due to the huge amount of interest and inquires but only one bid to re list with NO RESERVE, there is not another Alaskan for sale anywhere in the world for under $100k Compassionately refitted and upgraded Grand Banks Alaskan 49. Lovingly restored between 2019 and 2021 and ready to go. A real cult classic from one of the most respected names in the business. 2-cabins, 2-heads layout. Its said that wood boats cruise more quietly and have better insulation. With her large salon and galley with home-sized appliances, multiple staterooms and heads, COHORTS is the lowest priced Alaskan on the market, a nice, classic live-aboard. She has been kept for decades in a covered boathouse and her bottom was done in 2019.Founded in 1956 the Grand Banks yard is still building yachts today. The ALASKAN 49 was built by American Marine (Grand Banks) in Mahogany planking on Yacal frames and launched in 1974, and with over 300 sold, and is one of the most iconic of all the Defever designs. She recently completed a 600+ nm trip from the Chesapeake Bay to Savannah GA, Her long range and incomparable stability in a variety of sea conditions inspires the confidence to take her anywhere you want to go in style and comfort. COHORTS is hull nr. 46 of this very popular trawler-style yacht. Restored under the current and previous ownership. Fitted out cruising spec, her highlights include:• Mahongany planking on Yacal frames• Hard-top above aft deck• 2-cabin, 2-heads layout• Onan 60 generator• Inverter Waeco Perfect power• Air conditioning system ENGINES: Engine 1-Make: Ford Lehman Model: 120Inboard Year: 1973Fuel: DieselHours: 6200Drive Type: DirectEngine 2-Make: Ford Lehman Model: 120Type: InboardYear: 1973Fuel: DieselHours: 6280Drive Type: Direct Transmission: Ratio: 2:1 Ratio: 2:1COHORTS benefit from a recent expenditure in the last three years with many works done:• Wooden structure refitted• Engine discharge• All new through hulls, glassed, with new sea-strainers and seacocks • New shore power electric wires, and inverter• Overhauled engine cooling system• Extensive woodwork removing any wood rot • Raymarine navigation instruments + VHF with AIS installed 2021Boat will need some TLC on the exterior I have had the painting at vanish bid but I am looking to sell rather than take on that project, I am just not using the boat as much as it should be. PRESS REVIEW:Grand Banks Yachts began its journey in 1956 as American Marine, Ltd. Founder Robert J. Newton and his sons, John and Whit, were running a custom boatyard on Junk Bay in Hong Kong, building heavy sailboats and big motor yachts to designs by the world’s top marine architects – Sparkman & Stephens, William Garden, Nat Herreshoff, Ray Hunt and others.In 1962, they commissioned Kenneth Smith, another well-known marine architect, to design Spray – a 36-foot diesel powered cruising boat with humble, workman-like lines. A year later, inspired by Smith’s design, the Newtons left custom yacht building to focus on producing the first of a line of boats that would come to be known as Grand Banks.Today, this design is recognized around the world as the Grand Banks Heritage Series, an iconic design built first of wood and then, beginning in 1973, of fiberglass at a new factory in Singapore. The design was so successful, in fact that the general styling of the GB was seized by a score of other builders for fleets of look-alike yachts sold under dozens of names. None, through, could match the quality of construction for which Grand Banks is famed.Boat cannot remain in its current slip under new ownership as per rules of the marina it is in. Please keep in mind this is a nearly 50 year old classic wooden trawler it is not perfect it needs work and will consistently need work to keep it up, as any boat will, but it will take care of you and as they say nothing rides like a wooden boat, please keep this in mind. Re-listing due to buyer seeing the boat in person and changing his mind, boats are a lot of work and yes for this price you are going to have some projects to do, as I said at the top, there isn't another Alaskan for sale anywhere in the world for less than $100k if you are looking for a boat that needs less work then I would look at the only other one for sale in the USA, for sale in Alaska for $160k very tidy turn key boat. I will deliver north or south on the ICW up to 100 miles at cost $1000 non refundable deposit due within 38 hours of end of auction I have been offered a few trades over the last few auctions, I am open to trades but not really looking for just anything or another project boat. That said here are a couple things I would consider a trade for, not a complete list but a start. Vintage European car Porsche 911 (any generation) Technical polling skiff Full size late model DIESEL truck
