Presenting Loon, a finely crafted and cherished 2009 Grand Banks 47 Classic. 

She has been properly serviced, nicely updated, and meticulously maintained since new. Conceived by designers and builders whose goal it was to modernize a renowned classic. Loon offers rock-solid reliability, balanced by graceful lines and a gracious interior.

Remarkably efficient throughout her speed range, the GB 47 CL is capable of sustained cruising at over 20 knots to cover miles quickly, expanding your cruising horizons 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 anywhere in between, to suit your own cruising style.

The GB 47 CL looks and feels bigger, brighter, and roomier than other boats in her class. Her accommodations take advantage of every inch, affording a luxury of space and style.

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

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

Throughout Loon

The Classic design features the same hull form as the Europa. The deck configuration differs to allow the grand aft stateroom, but GB’s signature wide side decks for safety and security are still there. The salon, lower helm station and galley all on the main level, just above the water line, giving the yacht a very livable 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 from the tender to a solid and secure swim platform, then up two  well placed 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, to the foredeck. 

On the port side of the trunk cabin, climb a couple of steps up, then enter the yacht’s salon through a full size door, or continue up to the flybridge.

The spacious salon is midships, integrated to the galley forward to port, with the lower helm station opposite to starboard.

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 50Amp 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.
