The late Art DeFever, Naval Architect, is the man who rightfully earned credit for creating the cruising yacht designs we commonly call trawlers today. Since 1939, Mr. DeFever has drawn boats that are sea kindly, comfortable and pleasing to the eye.

In 1962 Kenneth Smith was commissioned to design Spray, a 36-foot diesel powered cruiser. A year later work started on a line of boats that would come to be known as Grand Banks. Since 1966 this line of boats has been the benchmark by which all other production cruisers are measured.
