General Description

“Grants Choice” is a rare Cummins diesel powered Bluewater 5600.  A wonderfully innovative and spacious yacht she features a huge open one level interior with two staterooms and two heads and plenty of storage space.  Her exterior is equally impressive with a massive flybridge, comfortable aft deck and a bow with dual sun pads.  “Grants Choice” is a very capable cruising vessel (perfect for the Great Loop or the Islands), a great choice for a live aboard, or will make a fun family weekender.  With recent Cummins cooler service, fresh canvas, Garmin Chartplotter, Autopilot, Bow Thruster and more this is a boat not to be missed!

Conveniently located in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, just minutes off of I-95 and only 20-25 minutes from Baltimore Washington International (BWI) airport please call to set up an appointment to see “Grants Choice” today!
Layout and Accommodations
The exterior profile of “Grants Choice” is well lined and flows gracefully with a low overall profile, nicely curved large cabin windows and a hardtop over the flybridge helm station.  The bridge area is easily accessed from both side decks as well as the aft deck with molded stairways and no ladders.  The flybridge has a new bimini extending from the aft edge of the hardtop providing shade when desired for the entire seating lounge area and can be folded when sun is desired.  The bridge has a built in wetbar and electric grill, large circular dinette and a sunpad on the aft overhang.   This aft overhang also provides shade and cover to the aft deck which creates a great “back porch” feel directly off the master stateroom.  Sun lovers will also find a large bow sunpad and a second sunpad forward built into the brow of the boat.  An anchor windlass makes anchoring out a breeze and this boat literally becomes your own floating island!

Inside the cabin is bright and open with large windows and light wood cabinetry.  There is a lower helm station for those inclement weather days and a salon with sleeper sofa.  A unique feature just above the lower helm is a raised “loft” with cushion that is guaranteed to have every child pining to use it as their place to sleep aboard.  Just aft and open to the salon is a full size galley with upright refrigerator, microwave, dual sinks and abundant storage space.   Across from the galley is a booth style dinette.   The two private staterooms are at opposite ends of the boat with the guest stateroom forward featuring its own entry, large double berth and head with shower.   The master is aft with a walk around queen berth, private head with stall/tub shower and again a sliding door aft to the covered aft deck.
With a draft of only two feet, reliable Cummins diesel engines and a unique layout this boat is not your cookie cutter motor yacht/trawler.  Versatile, efficient and roomy “Grants Choice” offers it all!
