Designed to turn heads and be the talk of talk of every harbor and Yacht Club, Grande Dad is styled to be reminiscent of a classic Royal Dutch Navy Admiral's Launch, She would more likely be enjoyed as a "cocktail cruiser" or a gentlemen's motor launch with eye-catching curvy lines and a wineglass finish. Professionally constructed in 2005 in fiberglass to modern standards, she spent most of her life in storage with little use. The current owner has made many recent upgrades to suit the Downeast coastal lifestyle and she is a pleasure to own and operate.
