Grands Banks Yachts set to build the new GB85

Get set for the mighty Grand Banks 85, the largest yacht Grand Banks has built to date. Building on the recently released GB60, the GB85 offers the option of a flybridge or a climate controlled skylounge. A 22-foot beam presents wide-open entertaining areas with ample space to socialise inside and out. Be spoiled for choice with the option of a full-beam master stateroom, boasting a large double ensuite, or a 4-cabin layout, spacious enough to sleep up to 9 people comfortably.

In the factory the hull mould is well underway, with all framework now assembled and the preparation of the mould surface has now also commenced. Our recently upgraded in-house robot facility is now fully operational, with a second 8-axis robot we now have twin armed robotic milling capabilities, providing us with more flexibility and enabling a larger output of parts.

The robots will soon be used to cut the deck plug for the GB85 offering improved efficiency and a high degree of accuracy in parts. The implementation of in-house robots reduces the time spent on monotonous tasks, allowing staff to focus on the tasks in-house which require high attention to detail, such as design features, joinery and problem solving.
