NANUK, Grand Banks 46 Europa



Bill, a life-long adventure sailor and noted yacht designer, purchased NANUK, a late-model Grand Banks 46 Europa, in 2017. With her sea-kindly hull and stabilizers, during their first extended motor yacht passage from Florida to New England, the crew made great time running outside much of the way before turning inside the NC Capes, where channels are wide and there are no speed limits. Says Bill, “When I got home, one of the unexpected benefits of this design was the great diving platform enjoyed by all the grandchildren!”
