Seaquel is a Grand Banks 46 Classic with that rare combination of great style, outstanding equipment, upgrades, “garage kept” and low hours. The addition of the custom hardtop negates canvas top maintenance and replacement as well as providing more UV protection. The hardtop features overlapping sliding side panels of solid acrylic, easy to see through panels and is supported by a substantial stainless support structure. With Naiad Stabilizers and Sidepower bow thruster she can be handled with minimum crew and still provide maximum pleasure!
The Grand Banks 46 Classic came out as a prototype in 1984. Oxford Yacht Agency ordered both of them! They were down galley 46’s with 3208 engines. By 2004 when 46CL#279 was built the 46 had grown up and matured. Along the way hull #212 became a pivotal project indeed. Dual stage exhaust, smooth quiet 3126(m) engines, better sound control, more room in the forward head, integral washer/dryer and lower maintenance. Seaquel, as she has been known throughout this time, reflects a high standard.
Seaquel has the very spacious mail salon, down galley with large utility room and ensuite; head with stall shower. The owner’s stateroom has a forward large island berth, split head, ample storage and a private entrance to the aft cockpit.
Cruising speed ranges from the traditional 9+ knot hull speed with 1 nautical mile per gallon to a 13 knot cruise.
Built in 1999, she was ordered for a customer who was knowledgeable and enlisted aid from a good GB dealer. Some of her main features are the down galley layout, custom seating, low maintenance exterior, low maintenance CAT 420 HP 6 cylinder mechanically controlled engines, Naiad Stabilizers, Sidepower bow thruster, recently updated Furuno and Garmin electronics, HD SAT TV system, Large TV, tasteful GB upholstered chairs, custom hard top by Oxford Yacht Agency and a nice hard bottom inflatable with Marquip Davits.
Seaquel has lived and been maintained in a protected environment in a covered slip for most of her years under both her owners. consequently here fiberglass glows brightly and her teak decks are neat and tidy.
