Thanks Capt.Bill11 for your IT skills. I`d say the Europa like extension is after market, but it sure follows the original design.
Mentally(barring healhustler helping) deleting the cover gets close to the "Sports" design.
A previous broker for the 36 advertised it as a commercial or trade version.

Thanks for the legwork Capt.Bill. It looks to my eyes the same design, albeit with the cover over the cockpit. Model year 1977- so 12 or so made over eight years so far. This one with twin Lehmans. I think between the three there might be some window differences, thats all I can see.
Grand Banks must have made hundreds of boats a year in the 70's and 80's. It's a real treat to see such a limited production model. One has to wonder just what both GB and their customers were thinking during this time. Did you have to know someone to get this rare version? I'm thinking of the American auto industry of the sixties, or even then European auto industry before that.

leeman,I know the design appeals to you, but if GB only made 12 they may not have been universally popular. I`m thinking anyone buying one would have a specific purpose in mind. The 42 looks good, but the 36 for sale here reminds me of a pick-up truck and hasn`t found a buyer in 2 years.
