With her covered side decks and classic Europa lines, the Grand Banks 54 Heritage EU is a cruising yacht of exception beauty and elegance.

A curved stairwell descends from the helm to the lower-level accommodations which include a full-beam master stateroom with queen bed, forward VIP stateroom with walkaround queen, and a guest stateroom with over/under bunks. A utility room with washer/dryer and watertight engine room door is reached from the master stateroom.
