Manufacturer Provided Description

The design of the 53 Aleutian RP was driven by the same key principles that have guided every Aleutian model before her: Timeless nautical spirit and time-tested cruising capability. Strong, seaworthy performance against the elements. Handcrafted luxury, breathtaking visibility, and exhilarating power. An on-board experience that is both peaceful and profound. But one key characteristic - outstanding long-range capability - was particularly central to the design of this model. What emerged is an entirely new Aleutian, smaller in size but with the powerful presence you expect from the series. Exceptionally capable of supporting a cruising couple or family on long voyages - or of setting the perfect stage for entertaining closer to home. And, as always, designed and constructed with the kind of attention to detail, quality, and reliability you have come to expect from Grand Banks - a unique expertise that comes from over 50 years of building iconic motor yachts.

This is a very efficient U-shaped galley, located amidship starboard on the same level as the lower helm. A perfect location with easy access to and from the fly bridge, salon or helm dinette. The galley offers excellent light, visibility and natural ventilation. The expansive granite counters are easy to care for and compliment the teak cabinets for all custom Grand Banks dish ware, glassware & flat wear. Below counter Subzero drawer refrigeration and freezers are perfect for this application and provide easy access and sensible organization. Between the Subzero drawers is an optional Fisher Paykel dishwasher and the Sharp convection microwave is located in the upper cabinet. Notable improvements over previous 53's located the microwave below the counter and the galley island was reduced in size on previous models. The cabin sole is satin varnished teak & holly with Atlas Miaze Sarbonne carpet.
