Presenting La Grande Blue II, a finely crafted and cherished 2009 Grand Banks 47 Europa. She is offered by a highly experienced and proud yachting family. Long time WVYC members. She has been properly serviced and nicely updated. Conceived by designers and builders whose goal it was to modernize a renowned classic. La Grande Blue II offers rock-solid reliability, balanced by graceful lines and a gracious interior.

Remarkably efficient throughout her speed range, the GB 47 EU is capable of sustained cruising at over 20 knots to cover miles quickly, and quietly, when desired. The design offers the best of both worlds either as a leisurely 8 knot trawler, or as a 20+ knot sport cruiser, or somewhere in between, to suit your own cruising style. Detailed performance data can be found towards the end of this brochure.

The generous salon, cockpit, and flybridge can easily handle quite a crowd for entertaining, and the two stateroom / two head layout can comfortably accommodate four owners and guests overnight.

Quality, performance, sophistication, elegance, reliability, comfort; all synonymous with this and every legendary Grand Banks Yacht.

Throughout La Grande Blue II

The Europa design features the signature covered aft cockpit, and side decks. The salon, lower helm station and galley all on the main level, just above the water line, giving the yacht a very liveable layout, an open feel, and outstanding ocean views at anchor and underway, both for the guests on board, and importantly, safe sight lines for the lower helm operator, building confidence.

Board from the dock or the tender to a solid and secure swim platform, then up two steps to the cockpit, or board to the side decks through the opening railings port and starboard.

Walk forward port and starboard to the side decks, on the same level, then up one step to the foredeck. Gently sloped stairs on the port side of the cockpit lead up to the boat deck and flybridge.

From the cockpit, enter the salon through large sliding door. Forward to port is the galley, which may seem compact, but the thoughtful layout offers surprisingly good storage and work spaces. The lower helm station is opposite the galley 

Between the galley and lower helm, descend steps to the accommodations area with the guest cabin to starboard, guest and day head to port, and the huge master suite all the way forward.

  • Distinctive Flag Blue hull with red and gold boot stripes
  • Exquisite teak cabinetry and joinery throughout with a hand-rubbed satin varnish
  • Teak and holly sole throughout the interior

While set as a dining table, the starboard occasional chairs can slide in to join, rounding out the dining area for up to six diners. 

The port settee has storage underneath, and the base slides out to make a wider berth for that rare occasion.

Electrical Systems

AC and DC power services the vessel through circuit breaker panels with appropriate voltage and ampere gauges. 

AC power is provided by 240/120V 50 Amp shore connection, by the generator set, or, for lighter loads, by a 3,000 Watt inverter, powered by the house bank of batteries. 

AC power is distributed through a circuit breaker protected panel with switches to select the AC power input; either the fore or aft shore power cable, or generator or inverter power.

DC power is distributed through circuit breaker protected panels. There are two banks of batteries; the house bank for onboard systems, and a dedicated start bank for engine and genset starting; both with dedicated charging systems.

At sea, the batteries are charged by engine or generator driven alternators and while at a dock, by the inverters and chargers via shorepower.

  • House battery bank of AGM batteries, 1,600 Amp/hours total
  • Engine start and generator start batteries

Engines and Mechanical

The engine room is accessed via a ladder from a hatch beside the helm, or by lifting the flybridge stairway in the aft cockpit. The space is thoughtfully designed with easy access to all mechanical equipment, generator, and batteries. There is plenty of room for additional storage, spare parts and tools.

The twin Cummins QSC8.3 500 hp engines are turbo charged, after cooled, and are electronically controlled common rail fuel injected engines. These engines provide excellent fuel economy, and with quiet and smoke free performance. The superb engine room insulation, soft motor mounts and a shaft saver coupler contribute to a surprisingly quiet interior salon while underway.
