64′ Grand Banks Aleutian Paikea II
Each refit project is its own new beginning, promising the potential of enjoyment with family and friends and future memories to be made. That’s exactly what the owner of the 64’ Grand Banks Paikea II had in mind for his trawler yacht refit project.
Rather than purchasing a new boat, the owner decided to undertake an extensive refit on his beloved current yacht to both update the look and create a functional space to suit his young family. This project was significant in scope, and included transforming the guest accommodations, removing built-in furniture, incorporating functional outdoor entertainment and cooking areas and restoring the woodwork throughout.
The owner requested that the main salon be multi-functional to accommodate both entertaining and overflow sleeping, so we removed some of the built-in furniture and bookshelves and fabricated a comfy sofa with a pull-out bed in lieu of the built-in settee.
The lower deck accommodations originally included a midship study with a desk, a settee that could be used to sleep one person and a head with no shower. To accommodate as many family members as possible, we transformed the study into a stateroom with two twin beds, one which will slide to create one larger bed, and a full head with a shower.
Overall we gave yacht a fresh, updated look, with the faded teak being toned to have a rich mahogany look in some areas and painted a contrasting bright white in others.
