“First Light” is a great opportunity to own one of the highly-sought-after Grand Banks 59 Aleutians. 

The twin CAT C-15 Acerts (853HP each) have 2320 original hours and are fully up-to-date on services. They provide a top speed of 23 knots and a cruise at 18knots, or pull back to 9 knots and burn 11gph — over .8mpg and 1,000+nm range. Over 90% of the engine hours were at idle speeds (per mechanical survey). 

This model really stands out as a great option for owner-operators who want a pedigree trawler with a very solid ride, lots of interior volume, upper and lower helms, and spacious side decks.
