2015 Grand Banks


Dragon, the second in the 55 RPH series, was thoughtfully designed and equipped by a couple with many years and thousands of miles of cruising experience from the west coast of Florida to Canada. They poured over the details during the construction process and the result is wonderful example of a Raised Pilothouse Motoryacht. There is very little available in the market today that will rival what Dragon offers: an 18 knot cruising speed, tremendous accommodations and a yacht easily handled by a couple.

The 55 Aleutian RP follows in the steps of the acclaimed 53 Aleutian RP, but provides additional room and luxury. The layout includes three generous staterooms below deck and an expansive, full standing headroom utility room, accessible from both the master and the engine room and whose features include a washer and dryer, freezer and a butcher block topped work bench with plenty of storage for tools and spare parts . The main deck features split entertaining areas; the salon with abundant seating, and the pilothouse for any eating or navigation needs. The 55RP also features brand new interior decorations for a fresh look and feel. And of course all of these features are backed with the dependability and craftsmanship Grand Banks has offered for over 50 years.

Highlights include:

This is just a snapshot into the features and accommodations on Dragon. If you are looking for a comfortable, reasonably fast pilothouse motor-yacht with excellent cruising accommodations but easily handled by a couple, you must schedule a visit.

The 55 Raised Pilothouse offers generous cruising accommodations in a three cabin, two head layout. The boat is accessed via an oversized swimplatform (boasting an enormous garage for storage of all types). Port and starboard gates allow easy movement to a spacious cockpit with settee and bench seat. The cockpit is well thought out with weather protection via the extended flybridge hardtop, port and starboard wing doors, overhead hatch at the stairwell and even mesh drop curtains for sun protection. Double wide sliders open-up the outside into a light, airy comfortable main salon. Three steps lead up to a pilothouse with dinette and galley. Visibility is tremendous in all directions for piloting and docking, although the captain also has the option of docking from a docking station in the cockpit.

The accommodations level is accessed through an elegant, curved stairwell finished with details like a curved hand rail and non-slip inlays in the teak treads. The stairs land in a lobby which opens to the day head (also serves as the VIP head with shower stall), the VIP cabin forward, bunk room to port and the master cabin aft. The master features a full beam layout with true queen sized bed, large head with separate shower stall and oversized fixed hull ports, port and starboard, bringing light, reflection and ocean colors into the cabin.

A beautifully finished teak door leads to an expertly designed and equipped utility space for storage, laundry and extra refrigeration. Aft, through a water tight door is the engine room. There is access all around both engines, and all equipment is easily accessed and serviced. A ladder and cockpit hatch lead back up to the cockpit.

Covered side walk-arounds, complete with teak decking and handrails lead through the Portuguese bridge to the bow deck. The generous bow deck space offers a very comfortable settee that offers a wonderful place to sit and enjoy a slow harbor cruise. Back aft to the cockpit, a starboard side quarter turn stairwell leads to the bridge. The aft deck offers plenty of space for a 12 tender and a 1000 pound capacity crane and a wet bar and grill. The open fly-bridge features comfortable seating for 10 with two Stidd seats and two settees.
