Design 2698- Grand Banks 59 Aleutian RP

The Grand Banks 59 Aleutian raised pilothouse was introduced in 2006. The model was to be a smaller cousin of the GB64 Aleutian that had been in production for five years. The 59 is a big volume cruising boat built to a very high level of finish.

Standard engines are twin Caterpillar C9 diesels producing 500 hp each. Optional powering includes C15s producing 853 hp each or C18s producing 1,000 hp each. With the optional Caterpillar C18 diesels she will make 27 knots and cruise at 22 knots.

Here's an article from Boat International magazine that tells the story. Please double click for zoom.
