1980 Grand Banks 49 Classic
Boat Type: Trawler Address: Merritt Island, FL, US Price: $184,900


Recent Price Reduction Shows Motivated Seller. "Sybaris" is a very clean Grand Banks 49 Classic with 3 cabins, 2 heads, Galley Up and helm stations both inside and up on the flybridge.  She's been very well maintained by her current owner of 16 years who enjoyed her doing the Great Loop among other adventures. Her brightwork is very impressive and kept extremely well inside and out.  Her teak decks show no signs of leaks and retain the "classic" Grand Banks look. She is powered by twin fuel efficient Lehman 120's, Onan 15kw Genset and is Niad Stabilized.  Both helm stations have the Raymarine Chartplotters and radar units.  The Grand Banks 49 is an excellent cruising live-a-board with a great reputation amongst trawlers for going the distance.  "Sybaris" is ready to be enjoyed and loved by a new owner.  Upgrades in late March 2012 include new 3kw Zantrex Invertor, 2 new 8D and 2 new 4D deep cycle batteries.
