POUR VOUS is a remarkable example of the popular 3-stateroom Grand Banks 52 Europa. She has been owned and lovingly cared for by a couple since 2006. They have cruised on her as far north as Maine and as far south as Florida and the Bahamas while enjoying the company from time to time of their adult children, grandchildren, and friends. POUR VOUS possesses the upgrades and standard of maintenance garnered by having experienced, hands-on yachtsmen at the helm. Please take the time to read the long list of upgrades and maintenance included in this spec sheet.
In 2004, prior to the present owners purchasing her, one of POUR VOUS' Caterpillar 3126 engines developed a problem. As a result, she was re-powered with new C9, 503 h.p. Cats. These engines have been fastidiously serviced, including having oil samples taken annually.
In addition, POUR VOUS has two generators located in the lazarette which allows for a true walk-in engine room plus a larger than normal stall shower in the master stateroom head.
A horizontal dinghy placement allows for room on the top deck for two steamer chairs, enhancing the already large bridge deck.
Anyone looking for a close to ideal boat for a couple who want to be able to cruise on their own or in the company of family and friends, should not pass up the opportunity of purchasing POUR VOUS.
