First launched in 1984 the Grand Banks 46 has proven to be an ideal long distance cruiser, available in the Classic or Europa styles. A true semi-displacement hull it strikes the perfect balance between the extremes of full planning and displacement hulls; comfortable cruising between 8-10kts and capable of nearing 20kts if pushed hard. Designed for longer distance cruising the Classic layout boasts two spacious double cabins with a third crew cabin and elevated saloon. With over 300 hulls leaving the factory the Grand Banks 46 has built a loyal following.

With just her second owners since she was built ANNE OF ARDFERN has been based in Scotland since her arrival in the UK as a new boat. A familiar sight around the coast of Scotland she has cruised extensively from Dublin in the south North to the Orkneys and as far west as St. Kilda.
