Historical Information:

Between 1965, when the first Grand Banks splashed into the water at Hong Kong, and 1973, American Marine launched more than 1,400 GB and Alaskan yachts.

Each was meticulously hand built of wood by Asian shipwrights. The hulls were planked with heavy, durable mahogany; the frames were yacal, a tough tropical hardwood. Finely-fitted and richly-hued teak was used generously throughout the interior and in hand and cap rails.

Over three decades little has changed at Grand Banks, except the material from which yachts are built. Today, fiberglass rules with teak continuing in a decorative role.

An expert looking across a crowded summer anchorage can't tell the difference between a well-kept 1973 woodie and a 1993 fiberglass yacht. The company has made no major design changes since Ken Smith drew the lines for the first Grand Banks, a 36-footer, in the early 1960s.

The company gave its boats a few more inches of beam and length in the late 1980s. Yachts of this millennium probably are glossier, sexier, and more sophisticated, but at heart they are no different than the first woodies delivered nearly 35 years ago.

Regardless of age, Grand Banks yachts are well-built, comfortable sea boats much in demand because of their well-deserved reputation for quality.

Today, the base price of a new 36 is $350,000. Taxes and commissioning easily will push the total to $400,000 or more.

Here's why woodies are interesting. A 32-footer of the teak-and-mahogany generation today will fetch between $40,000 and $60,000 A wood 36 Classic, with two staterooms, two heads, and a modest-sized saloon, will range from $60,000 to $80,000: superb specimens will go for more.

DO NOT MISS THIS ONCE IN A LIFETIME DEAL. Perfect for first-time boat owners. Docking fees at Pacific Yacht Landing $600 per month, including water and power.

Canvas bag on stern looks to be a live bait well.
