Seattle, Wash. – August 12, 2011 – Grand Banks Northwest, the Northwest United States' dealer for new Grand Banks, is planning its biggest boat show display in the company's history for the Lake Union Boats Afloat Show, September 14th through the 18th. The company plans to display eight boats, including new Grand Banks, pre- owned Grand Banks and a variety of pre-owned yachts from other premier brands such as West Bay SonShip, Tiara, Sabre, and Chris Craft.


"We've displayed at every Seattle boat show since we opened our doors, but this fall we want to make an even bigger impact. There are buyers out there, here in the Northwest, and they deserve to get aboard a wide variety of models in a venue like the Boats Afloat Show," says Grand Banks Northwest General Manager Tucker West. "There's simply no better place to look at and compare boats than at a boat show. We want to make sure it's convenient, fun and easy for customers to see what we have to offer. The internet is great, but nothing compares to getting on board and really feeling a boat out," continues West.


Showgoers will be able to tour a diverse selection of boats at the Grand Banks Northwest display, encompassing a wide range of prices and styles. For Grand Banks fans, the display includes a Grand Banks 53 Aleutian RP, a 1983 Grand Banks 49CL, a Grand Banks 42CL and a 1985 Grand Banks 36SE. Other premier vessels available include a 2003 58' West Bay SonShip, a 2008 43' Tiara 4300 Sovran featuring Volvo IPS pod drive propulsion, a 2000 47' Sabreline motoryacht and a 1985 48' Chris Craft cockpit motoryacht.


The Lake Union Boats Afloat Show, produced by the Northwest Yacht Brokers Association, runs September 14th through the 18th from 10:00am to 6:00pm daily, at South Lake Union in Seattle, Washington. For more details, including ticket information, visit
