    Central agent had the pleasure of brokering the sale of this classic trawler to its current owner in 2013. At the time the boat had passed through a couple of owners who had little time for the boat, and her cosmetics were beginning to slip, although her 'bones' and mechanicals, as the survey would prove, were sound. Her new owner wasted no time getting her shipshape, giving her a bottom job, tending to bright work and other cosmetics. An electric head was installed in the master as well as an inverter for light AC loads. After living aboard and wintering in the Keys, TRANQUILITY pointed her bow North in March 2015 and began the Great Loop. This is arguably the type of cruising the venerable Grand Banks Classic 36 was built for, and she performed flawlessly through the trip of 6,000+ miles. Her naturally aspirated 3208 Caterpillar ticked over steadily without a hiccup burning an average 2.6 GPH. She is now offered for sale as her owner is ready to check off his next bucket list item. Having been in steady use and well attended to, TRANQUILITY is ready to take you on your next adventure. Opportunity knocks!

    Brokers Comments

    With more than 1200 built, owner enthusiasm and continued strong demand on the brokerage market, the 36 Grand Banks is indeed a Classic. Ideally suited to the cruising couple or small family, TRANQUILITY is perfectly proportioned. Her layout is well-considered and eminently practical. She is solidly constructed, seaworthy, and comfortable. Her warm,
    all teak interior is most inviting, and her economy of operation make her an eminently suitable choice.
