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.

Displayed at the 2005 London boat show JO JAY has been UK-based since new; now with her fourth owners, based in Scotland during the current and previous ownerships. Internally she has the more modern layout with a linear galley in the deckhouse and a spacious third single cabin forward. Wintered ashore undercover with her current owners she has benefitted from recent upgrading. Her inventory highlights feature:
