Grand Banks Aleutian 72 RP


Aleutian Solution

The Grand Banks Aleutian 72 RP has a Tom Fexas-designed modified-deep-V hull. She is a rather fuel efficient vessel at semi-displacement velocities but is also capable of a 21-knot cruise speed and a 25-knot top end. Expansive staterooms and common areas grace her ample, classically styled interior. The Bland’s 72 offers an alternate exterior arrangement, with a spacious aft deck that leads down to a lower cockpit, with a swim platform beyond. It is particularly handy for facilitating dinghy launches, diving excursions, and, should a painter get fouled under the boat, instantaneously jumping overboard.
