Overview

HARD TIMES is a 2006 Grand Banks 72 Aleutian Raised Pilothouse. She was based on the Grand Banks 64 Aleutian RP, designed by Tom Fexas, but benefits from a cockpit, longer running surface, additional fuel capacity, and more storage. She is easy to handle thanks to walkaround decks and a side door directly adjacent to the lower helm station. Twin Caterpillar C30 diesel engines rated at 1,550 horsepower each enable this boat to reach top speeds approaching 27 knots and a comfortable high cruise speed of around 21 knots. For efficiency, anything under 11 knots is very economical and doesn’t require much effort from the big engines. Three staterooms with ensuite heads plus crew quarters for 2 provide plenty of space for overnight guests. What is normally a convertible office is a dedicated stateroom on this 72, with 3 bunks. Typical of Grand Banks, her interior living areas are roomy and comfortable and feature beautiful teak joinery.
