TENAKEE is an beautifully-maintained and continuously-updated ALL FIBERGLASS example of the tri-cabin Grand Banks 36 Classic trawler. Two staterooms, each with ensuite head, allows two couples or a family to travel in privacy and comfort. Recent updates include a Vetus bow thruster, revised electrical system, new batteries, new flybridge upholstery and much more. Powered by a single AMMarine (John Deere) 135 horsepower diesel, she cruises comfortably at 8.5 knots and burns approximately 3 GPH. Continuously moored under cover, TENAKEE is unquestionably the nicest GB 36CL of her vintage and will not disappoint the most discriminating buyer. Call to schedule an appointment to inspect her.
TENAKEE is the finest vintage Grand Banks 36 Classics on the market. Solid fiberglass construction, impeccable teak joinery and conservative engineering combine to create one of the most economical, reliable and seaworthy yachts afloat. TENAKEE has always been moored under cover and her condition reflects the care and attention she has received. Her teak decks and painted window frames, occasional maintenance issues on GB yachts, are in superior condition. Fuel tanks were professionally cleaned, thoroughly inspected and found to be without fault. New batteries were installed and the electrical distribution system upgraded to take full advantage of the inverter and generator. Finally, a Vetus bow thruster was installed to make short work of tricky dockside maneuvering. In summary, TENAKEE's owners have created an ideal cruiser and she represents one of the best values on the market.
TENAKEE follows the traditional Grand Banks tri-cabin layout, locating the master stateroom with ensuite head aft and a similarly-equipped guest stateroom forward, separated by the salon, galley and helm station. This arrangement provides exceptional privacy for cruising couples while offering comfortable socializing room when everyone wants to be together. The salon is surrounded by windows and has an L-shaped settee with dining table to starboard and straight settee to port, providing seating for nine people. The galley is forward to port and includes a dual-voltage refrigerator, propane range with oven, microwave oven, stainless steel sink and a generous amount of storage. Opposite the galley to starboard is the lower helm station which includes engine controls, navigation electronics and electrical distribution panels. Adjacent to the helm station is a door providing easy access to the full walk-around decks.
Two steps above the deck is the aft cabin top which is a great spot for spreading a blanket and enjoying the sun. Three more steps up puts you on the flybridge with built-in seating and a second helm station with superior sight lines in all directions. Covered by a bimini top, this is a great place to spend an evening at anchor.
The single John Deere diesel engine sits amidship with room on all sides for easy maintenance. The generator is located aft with fuel tanks outboard on both sides allowing free and easy access to all machinery and equipment installed below deck. Electrical and plumbing systems are well-identified, neat and orderly.
