I am sure it is a marketing term, maybe invented by Grand Banks but widely copied. As you note, it indicates a sedan style boat with the boat deck extending to the end of the cockpit.

Since it has a nice, sheltered aft cockpit, usually a wide salon with the galley down or forward and the owners cabin forward where you can get good sea breezes, it is one of my favorite styles. Why GB sold their aft cabin models 10:1 over the Europas has always puzzled me.
