Looking for a Grand Alaskan 60-65

Hi all,
I am looking for a GA in the 60 foot range. Perferably in the west coast but will consider others.
Have seen the 4 currently on YW and even flew to Croatia to see one. So if anyone knows of anyone considering selling theirs, please let me know.
I will be selling my Defever 53 POC with slip in Port of Everett once we find the GA.
Thanks everyone.

I'd be interested to know why the ones you already saw did not fit the bill?

Nice choice by the way!

Addie, that in NY is not for sale in US waters. Have asked for more info.
I am still looking at the GA 65 in Dania beach, price is right.

Prob is the transport fee is 55K and I am trying to avoid that if at all possible.

HMY listed a GA 65 called Silver Sky a few months ago. Is this the one in Dania Beach? As I recall it has big Cat 3196s. We looked at two in 2018, neither met our goals due to wrong stabilizers and incorrect engines.

Cheoy Lees of the same size and vintage are worthy competitors IMHO. Allied recently listed a 72'er.

Yes, that is the same boat. It has been listed a long time. It's funny, the other 2 GA's are listed in the 850K range, quite a discrepancy. Thoughts?

Without seeing the GAs in person I've no thoughts on $ difference, just guesses. Maybe high hour 3196 engines in need of major servicing or general upkeep lacking? Have you seen ER? That visual may give a good tell on vessel.

For general comparison, look at the Cheoy Lee 72 Brandana. Nice clean well laid out machinery space, the right engines (Cat 3406) and well updated on the electronics end.

For the PNW, diesel heat is a nice to have item. Likely neither of these FL boats are so equipped.

We're interested in the 2002 53' Grand Alaskan and don't know much about this boat or builder.

Does anyone have an information abut the designer, builder and maintenance issues?

Thanks - Jim

We've had ours (yr 2000) for just over a year and absolutely love it. Maintenance wise we've been updating equipment that is 20yrs old, such as hot water tank, freshwater pump, electronics, etc. She handles rough water well and is easy to maneuver at the dock in high winds. Overall we have no regrets. Good luck with your search.

Btw we put 270hrs on her in our first year of ownership and plan to do the same this year.

Don't let that be an obstacle. It just means you need to run off shore to transact the deal, then import the boat into the US and pay import duty, assuming you will document in the US. Or not needed at all if you register outside the US.
