Yacht price :



"Corpsman" is a well constructed Grand Banks Trawler. There have been a number of important upgrades to this vessel. Her engine has had a complete rebuild and has aprox 500hrs since the rebuild. Her Westerbeke 8KW generator was also rebuilt in 2010. The hull had a complete Epoxy barrier coat in 2013 as well has having her topsides and cabin repainted with Awlgrip.The owner has decided, at this point, to offer her for sale at this very reasonable asking price. He may in the future continue with upgrades including but not limited to synthetic teak decks and overhead liner in the salon and forward cabin. This could be the perfect opportunity to purchase a stout cruising vessel that is mechanically sound, well built, and make her your own.

Below decks the 36 Classic shows off her classic styling and incredible use of space. One enters the Main Salon from a hinged door on the starboard side. The lower helm is also starboard with the well equipped galley off to port. Aft of the galley is a comfortable settee and to starboard an L-shaped dinette with a teak drop leaf table. The entire Main Salon is bright and inviting with large windows all around, some of which open to provide excellent ventilation. Her painted bulkheads and teak trim along with her blue fabric cushions and the renown parquet flooring in the Grand Banks just adds to the warmth and comfort for cruising. The guest stateroom is forward complete with an en-suite head, plenty of storage,  v-berth and large overhead hatche. The Master Stateroom is aft with a double berth to starboard, companionway to the aft deck, custom cabinetry (in lieu of a single berth to port) giving her tons more storage space and her own private en-suite head.

On deck one will find wide side decks for ease in getting around and high bulwarks with high teak rails with bronze stanchions. Her flybridge is very accommodating with plenty of seating space and a full enclosure for extended season cruising or just having more entertaining space. 

The 36 Grand Banks Classic is known for their classic lines and traditional good looks from her teak rails to her faux "Lapstrake" hull and bronze fittings. This design has been in existence for many decades, from wood hulls to fiberglass and has withstood the test of time.


Her galley is well appointed for a boat of this size. She is equipped with a 3 burner propane stove with oven and cover, RCA microwave, Tundra refrigeration/freezer, single stainless steel sink with pressure hot and cold water. There is plenty of counter space for food preparation and dry goods storage for galley ware in lockers and drawers.
