Grand Banks 52

Looks nice:

Any idea on performance to be expected with the IPS or shafts?

The AC version of the model is what caught my eye..

I’m surprised at the small tankage; fuel, water, and holding. Nearly the same as the 42. At 32 kts, the captain will be making frequent fuel stops.

How many members here would want a 52 foot boat that burns 29 GPH at 20kts? They don't say what it burns at the cruising speed of 28 kts!!

That's almost .70 mpg, not bad at almost 25mph. It would probably never be run at that speed for long or often, but at least it has the ability. At hull speed it probably will return 1 mpg or better.
