“Illusion” is a rare and limited production Grand Banks 36 Europa. Twin engines with bow thruster and more. The Europa design emphasizes livability in the main salon and galley areas. In addition to great visibility and ventilation, this boat also has forced air heat, making it warm and dry for comfortable winter use. The interior is entirely teak, in the Grand Banks tradition. Since it's discontinuation from new production, the 36 Europa is a scarcity. You will appreciate the walk-around side decks and extension of the cabin house roof, both of which provide protection from the elements. The extended roof area makes room for additional storage space aft of the flybridge and extends your living space outdoors. “Illusion” is a nice find in today’s market with a run on one or two engines in addition to massively docking ease with the bow thruster, loaded with options.
BROKERS REMARKS: I can’t believe the options. A very rare model with original owner. “Illusion” was supposed to be a single engine with bow thruster as you see from time to time. Well the factory or the dealer made a mistake and the current owner has made peace with that fact of a good deal from the factory floor to his dock with twin Cummins engines, bow thruster, larger gen-set, and all the bells and whistles you could put on one. I do not believe I have seen a twin engine with bow thruster on the market in some time in a G.B. You could drive to port or starboard with some practice and never touch the wheel. She is for sale after a long ownership. This is a chance to have a very nice trawler with nothing to spare.
Vessel is now back in the U.S. located in Tarpon Springs, a fresh clean and detail now being completed, fresh canvas, engines serviced, a/c's etc.
