There are boats that have been with us for so longand are so popularthat they have attained classic status. The Grand Banks 36 is such a boat. She was the first model in the Grand Banks fleet, and over 1,200 were built during her production years. (The original GB 36 was built of Philippine mahogany until mid-1973 when the transition to fiberglass was made.) A semi-displacement hull with a long keel, hard chines and a deep forefoot provide the stability that won the 36 a reputation for seaworthiness seldom matched by other boats in her class. Several twin-stateroom interiors were offered over the years, all finished with handcrafted teak woodwork and all incorporating the very best in workmanship, hardware and materials. Topside, raised bulwarks provide security to the walkaround decks, and theres room for a dinghy on the aft cabintop. Notable features include teak decks, functional mast and boom, and a spacious flybridge. Note the cockpit door in the aft stateroom. In 1987, the 36 Classic was slightly enlarged when six inches were added to the length and four inches to the beam. Most were powered by a single 120hp (or 135hp) Lehman diesel.
