49' Grand Banks

1999 49 Grand Banks
This cruising couple bought this beautiful 1999 49' Grand Banks, which was in need of some general maintenance, as well as deck repair. The customer also chose to add some custom features including a washer/dryer/utility room. After careful consideration, it was decided that removal of the original teak deck and replacing it with a painted, nonskid, fiberglass deck was the best option for them. The later model deck paint scheme and color was selected for a more current look.
