'Havana' is the only 65 Grand Banks Aleutian in Australia, ordered new for Australian delivery by Riviera (who were the Grand Banks importers at the time), and sold to her first owner who based the boat on the Gold Coast during which time she had only modest use. Now in the custody of her second caring owner for the last 3 years, 'Havana' has been cruised extensively including two voyages up into the Gulf Of Carpentaria.

'Havana' is an amazing vessel in several ways. In the first instance she is immaculately presented (being maintained by full time live aboard captain). Her equipment levels are extensive - both as built ex-factory including Naiad stabilizers, and likewise as a result of substantial and ongoing upgrades that now see her equipped with touch screen electronics for example. Also her almost 20ft beam makes for an extremely spacious vessel - permitting wide walk around teak laid side decks, a three cabin and three bathroom guest accommodation layout (importantly her third cabin offers side by side bunks - not "over and under" style bunks as required when the vessel doesn't have sufficient beam forward), and she carries an impressive amount of fuel as required for long range cruising. The contrast to other 65ft vessels is significant - 'Havana' is a big and extremely well equipped 65. Last but not least 'Havana' offers sprint speed capability exceeding 20 knots - perfect for when you just want (or have too) to get somewhere in a hurry.

Access from the swim platform up onto the teak laid cockpit is a dual access affair. The cockpit is well protected from the elements by way of the fly bridge overhang, and acrylic side wing doors restrict breeze roaring down the side decks when anchored in poor weather. Shade mesh can be installed into a dedicated sail track for additional sun protection when entertaining in the cockpit. Two electrically height adjustable high gloss varnished teak dining tables, each complete with an inlaid GB monogram, are installed in front of a full beam bench seat across the stern. The split table arrangement permits guests in the middle of your party to get up without disturbing everyone - smart thinking! In the starboard forward corner of the cockpit you will find a custom built top opening cool box being supplied crushed ice via a Dometic Eskimo Ice Chipper (which can make as much as 250kg of ice per day!) - make no mistake your drinks are genuinely always ice cold on board 'Havana'! To port you will find a curved staircase leading up to the fly bridge - internal all weather access is also possible to the fly bridge via an internal staircase from the pilothouse. Access to the crew cabin and engine room is possible via an external door on the port side deck under the above mentioned staircase up to the fly bridge.

It is important to note the current owner has gone to extraordinary trouble and expense to make the boat an extremely capable and safe long range cruising vessel. Such features include a S/S strike plate on the bow at and below waterline, the creation of dedicated additional underfloor storage compartments in otherwise unused space, the installation of rope cutters on each shaft, the installation of a radio battery in the event of a primary electrical systems failure, the installation of a 2nd stand-alone inverter/charger, the ability to isolate each battery bank in the event of an isolated battery cell failure that would otherwise compromise the total battery bank, the duplication of the ships electronics which provides the skipper two completely independent navigation systems, the installation of a 2nd generator, two fuel transfer pumps, two water pumps, duplicated heavy duty anchoring system including S/S Ultra Anchors - the list go on and on and on......

'Havana' is an extremely rare well equipped blue water passage maker ready to depart on her next voyage. Inspection is by appointment. She is currently lying at our Gold Coast marina.

Brand History:

Grand Banks Yachts began its journey in 1956 as American Marine, Ltd. Founder Robert J. Newton and his sons, John and Whit, were running a custom boatyard on Junk Bay in Hong Kong, building heavy sailboats and big motor yachts to designs by the world’s top marine architects – Sparkman & Stephens, William Garden, Nat Herreshoff, Ray Hunt and others. Today, this design is recognized around the world as the Grand Banks Heritage Series, an iconic design built first of wood and then, beginning in 1973, of fiberglass at a new factory in Singapore.

Today, Grand Banks offers a choice of models in three distinctive series: The Heritage Series of iconic trawler-style yachts; the Eastbay Series of Down East cruisers; and the Aleutian Series of bluewater raised- pilothouse yachts.

In each series, Grand Banks has sought to capture the spirit of a nautical ideal – and combine it with state-of-the-art equipment, meticulous craftsmanship, and superior construction techniques. It is the reason Grand Banks yachts have become such icons around the world, and why they continue to meet the high standards of discerning, demanding boaters today.
