60-64 Raised Pilothouse
Length w/ Pulpit:
Among the top-selling long range cruisers of her era, the Grand Alaskan 64 bears a strong resemblance to the old DeFever Alaskan series built during the late 1960s and 1970s. Where the original Alaskans were built of wood on a full displacement, round-chined hull, the Grand Alaskan rides on a semi-displacement hull with hard chines and a long prop-protecting keel. Built in Taiwan, the Grand Alaskan is a semicustom flush deck yacht with a cockpit. Her traditional lines are accented by a raised pilothouse, protective Portuguese bridge and wide covered side decks. A single level living area extending nearly 25 feet in length is formed by the salon, galley and aft cockpit. The standard three-stateroom interior has the galley forward of the salon and a huge master stateroom with private salon entrance. The day head opposite the galley is a practical touch and the pilothousefour steps up from the salonfeatures a forward facing settee, center helm, and steps to the flybridge. (A four-stateroom layout was optional.) Cat 3196 660hp diesels deliver a cruising speed of 910 knots (about 16 knots top). Over 30 of these yachts were built. The Grand Alaskan 60 is basically the same boat without the extended cockpit.
