Vessel Walkthrough

Soft Landing is a custom Grand Banks 46 Classic galley up. The vessel has a very special layout, that makes her ideal for two cruising couples and can accommodate young children as well with two extra berths, one in each stateroom. She has lots of floor space, much more ventilation than usually found on boats of this type and tons of storage space.
The galley on port has been extended all the way forward and includes two under counter refrigerators, lots of counter space and abundant drawer and cabinet storage.
A lower helm station is on starboard and offers an adjustable two person helm bench seat.
The saloon has three Hunter Green upholstered Ultrasuede settees plus two teak armed dining chairs that pull up to a large fixed dining table with drop-down leaves. There is also an entertainment/office area on the port aft bulkhead with slide out computer desk.
Forward and four steps down is the guest suite with lots of storage and floor space. This area normally offers two cabins but has been reconfigured into one spacious stateroom with an enlarged V-Berth forward and a childs berth over the additional hanging locker aft. The aft bulkhead has a separate flush mounted freezer and large doored storage locker. The guest head is en-suite and has a stacked separate washer and dryer and hanging wet locker.
The Master Stateroom is aft and has the split berth plan with a large double berth to starboard and large single berth to port. This opens up the middle floor space for dressing, yoga or space for playful grandchildren. There is a very large bureau aft and a walk-in hanging locker. The head is en-suite and has a separate stall shower.

SOFT LANDING was initially built by a very experienced yachtsman that added many custom features not found in other Grand Banks. These were done to make her the ultimate cruising yacht for a couple with adult children. She has two suites each designed for a family of three. Her galley up is well thought out and offers tremendous storage as does the saloon's arrangement of settees. Her entertainment center is compact and extremely well designed offering a fold-out computer desk and drawers.
The engine room has been detailed, the engines have been serviced and are up to date with CAT recommended maintenance. She's been waxed, varnished, cleaned and she's ready for her next owner. This vessel is one of a kind and well thought out.
