WISHINGSTAR is a fantastic 2021 model Grand Banks GB54 featuring a two stateroom, two head, galley down layout with amidship walkaround master, en suite head & stall shower, and plentiful storage. Her VIP stateroom is forward with a low, easily accessible queen berth and en suite head & stall shower. The down U-shaped galley features a very open cohesive feel with only three steps down from the salon and totally open above; a perfect layout fully equipped with the best Miele appliances, refrigeration/freezer, washer/dryer, and plentiful storage throughout. Powered by low 587 hour Volvo D11 725 straight shaft and extended warranty. Side-Power bow and stern thrusters and Humphree fin stabilization with zero speed function for at anchor!!

The GB54 showcases our proprietary V-Warp technology featuring a semi-displacement hull design which creates a remarkably stable and efficient ride and allows for a very shallow draft. She has a lightweight yet incredibly strong construction; Vinylester-infused e-glass in the hull and carbon fiber in the deck and superstructure which increases strength and durability while reducing weight.

WISHINGSTAR is powered by low hour twin Volvo D11’s 725hp shaft drive which provide a fast and efficient 25 knot cruise and 29 knot top speed. At a cruising speed of 20 knots she only burns approximately 35 gal an hour combined! That is incredible fuel efficiency and performance for a yacht of this size. The GB54 is versatile in her ability to cruise at high speeds as well as long ranges at trawler speeds, approx. 1,500 nm @ 10 knots. The height to the hardtop is about 18’ so her clearance for bridges through the East Coast and Great Loop is fantastic for a variety of boating excursions and destinations in combination with her shallow draft of approx. 4’3”.
