Grand Banks Motorsailer?

Didn't know they made one, but here is one for sale in Portland, OR

Must be an older boat as it states it to be a wooden hull.

50' Grand Banks Motor-Sailor and business income

Looks like an Alaskan which American Marine made during the late '60s to early '70s. Being sold as a GB for name recognition.

I know it’s a very old thread but I had never seen that section before, I guess this is new.

I have put that question to my current boat’s first owner, a qualified and experienced Grand Banks boats’ owner. I quote his reply.
«She is an Admiralty, a line of motorsailer yachts built by American Marine Hong Kong Ltd in the late 50s & early 60s.
In the late 50s many years before the launch of Spray in 1963 which introduced the Grand Banks line, American Marine Ltd was already famous for building custom boats, heavy sailboats and motor-yachts. There was the Chantyman line - a 35’ pilothouse motorboat - , the Admiralty line - a 50’ motorsailer designed by Roger Mac Aleer - , and a 40’ sailboat designed by Sparkman & Stevens.

A wooden boat is a hobby in itself.

Great as a live a board as the second a leak is spotted it can be repaired before nightfall.

The requirement to keep the wooden hull sound., no leaks EVER!

1969 American Marine Grand banks Admiralty 50 | Most Sailboats 1969 American Marine Grand banks Admiralty 50 | sailboat details & photos for reference & daydreaming

1969 American Marine Grand banks Admiralty 50 :

"This all weather diesel motorsailor is both efficient to cruise and elegant to live aboard. With her 4 private staterooms feel free to bring your friends and family but don’t worry about privacy as the 15′ X 14′ master stateroom comes complete with tempuredic Queen bed, comfortable settee, desk, 15 large drawers (6 that are over 4′ long)two large hanging lockers, a romantic diesel fireplace and a private head with large vanity and a tile tub and shower! Her interior and cushions are new over the last three years and over 60,000 dollars were spent over that time to bring her to excellent condition. The raised midship saloon with her L shaped Settee will sit 8 for dinner and the galley is conviently located to port with large windows to give you spectacular views while dinning or cooking.

Forward of the saloon is a large V berth, a head and shower to Stbd and another private guest cabin with sink and vanity to port. Aft of the saloon is a very comfortable captains cabin with sink and settee to stbd and the master suite aft.

But the best is yet to come! Up and aft of the saloon is a truly functional and comfortable wheelhouse with door aft to a covered, heated and side curtained cockpit for true all season cruising comfort. Outside both the fore deck and aft deck can hold a dozen people each (we’ve taken 34 sailing before:-) and the davits, swim platform and ladder round out a truly fun and functional deck! Finally, she holds a marad waiver to be legally chartered in the U.S. and the dinner cruise and private charter business is for sale too if you want your boat to pay for herself!

Equipment on Board:
- Twin 120HP ford Lehman diesels with high output alternator to charge 4 8D AGM house batteries to run a 2500 watt inverter.
- Two complete suits of sails with a Main Mizzen and Genoa still crispy new!
Four Burner magic chef stove/ Oven, full sized washing machine that spins at 1600 rpm to nearly dry your clothes outright! Chartploter, autopilot, radar, Depth/log, 400 gallons fuel, 400 gallons water, and round bilges, ample deadrise, a fine entrance and flare forward make her dry and comfortable.
Her easily driven hull makes cruising a joy! Her hull is mahogany and bronze fastened with inch and a quarter solid teak decks and interior.

She is built in classic Grand Banks style and strength at the pinnacle of the wood construction era".
