Grand Cru is a custom, one-of-a-kind, transatlantic motor yacht, made for yachtsmen that demand nothing burt the finest and represents a rare opportunity to purchase a world class and world capable yacht of fantastic comfort and pedigree. She was originally launched at Jongert in 1988 at 71’ and then returned to Jongert in 1995 where the original designer added a larger more comfortable aft deck and new European style transom extension, bringing the yacht to 78’, and giving her a much greater cruising range with her additional fuel capacity. Proving herself like few other yachts of her size can, GRAND CRU made several transatlantic crossings on her own bottom; approx. 100,000+ nautical miles.

Her knowledgeable owners have made many fantastic upgrades and gone to great lengths to ensure all of her systems are in top working order; going through the ship from stem to stern servicing and upgrading. With her 2014 total paint job, including hull, topsides and bottom, she looks 'As New'. With her new Naiad Zero speed stabilization system she is more stable and comfortable than one can imagine, and this Zero speed feature allows you to anchor anywhere in total comfort.

GRAND CRU is a high quality ship. This you can see everywhere you look around the yacht. The engines are Caterpillar work engines, not typical yacht engines. The generators are commercial equipment; they run at 1200 RPM, instead of at 1800 RPM as the new units do nowadays.

The shafts of this yacht are sealed in oil and then cooled by sea water. This is “big ship stuff.” The advantage is complete quietness and no salt water damage to the shaft. Her current owners have slept in the master stateroom many times while running, and say they could've been staying in the “Four Seasons.” The master stateroom with ensuite head is located at the aft and totally private. The huge master bath includes a Jacuzzi tub, dual sinks, and a large shower.

Outside you will find walkaround decks, oversized anchors and windlass, flybridge with comfortable seating throughout and enough space for any party. It’s impossible to turn off the generators at anchor on most other Yachts of this size due to the power demand for household type appliances and poor ventilation. This is one of the few ships of this size that can be a “Dead Ship.” A term used when anchoring out with all 110/220V power off with windows, hatches, doors, and ports open for ventilation.

The ship has a massive battery room with 9 new batteries that weigh approx. 450 pounds each. With the use of the large inverter system and huge battery bank, the SubZero refrigeration/freezer and other systems allow everything to keep the proper temperature for longer periods of time. All the staterooms have ventilation with hatches, screens, and dorades for fresh air. The salon and pilothouse areas have opening windows and screen doors. These screen doors are a work of art. Important to note that because she was originally built for an American owner, she is a 60 cycle boat with frequency converters installed for power input all over the globe.
