Loving Original Owner Moving Up- Excellent Opportunity!
The Grand Craft 36 Commuter
Classic Unparalleled Craftsmanship - Modern Technology
About Grand Craft- Simply said we have never seen a boat with a higher level of fit and finish. This work of art takes more than 2 years to build with a “It’s done when it’s done” approach. True craftsmen executing the build on their timeframe, not yours. Boarding this boat feels a bit like your standing inside a piece of handmade furniture. But don’t let this boat fool you. It is all business. It’s quiet ride coupled with its ability to handle rough days puts it in a class of its own. Additionally, this craft it outfitted with the latest in power and technology providing reliability, safety and ease of use.
Past and current owners of GrandCraft boats include Robert Redford, Jennifer Lopez, Tim Allen and Kid Rock. We would love to add your name to the list.

Welcome to the Grand Craft 36 Commuter, your Ultimate Classic Pleasure Craft. Constructed by hand using classic and time tested methods, she is a true piece of floating art and a study in expert wood carpentry from bow to stern.
Stepping aboard you are instantly transported to the roaring 20's on your way to a party at the Gatsby mansion...every visible part of the vessel is true to form, compelling you to somewhere special and unique.
The ride is unparalleled in comparison to fiberglass hull boats, with sound/vibration absorbing properties of the mahogany you feel like you are riding a Rolls-Royce on the water.
Ideal as a mega yacht tender, she speaks to the owner's unique and classic style like none other, projecting distinction and a keen eye for the truly premium.
Trained and skilled craftsmen mill and color match mahogany according to lofted patterns. The 36 Commuter is built with three layers on the sides and four layers on the bottom and transom.
African Meranti Mahogany is preferred by Grand-Craft for its flexible strength and sound/shock absorption, as well as its lasting beauty. Each piece is hand selected on the basis of the consistent, reddish brown hue and grain; straight grain for side planking, ribbon grain for the transom, if desired. Walnut and oak are often used on dash panels and storage compartments.
All hardware is hand-cast brass or bronze, which is plated in copper, nickel and chrome, by the highest quality process available. Heavy as it is handsome, this striking hardware exemplifies the quality of Grand-Craft — strong, durable and beautiful works of art.
Cross Plank Construction and West System Epoxy Resin Retain All the Beauty and Timeless Style of a Wood Boat but Without The Issues Typically Associated with Older Wood Vessels. Stringers, made from high-grade fir, run the length of the hull for added strength.
The Gorgeous Mahogany Exterior is Heavily Protected by up to 22 Layers of Awlspar and Awlbright Coating, the Best Protection Available For Wood in a Marine Environment, Even in Southern Climates.
The Grand Craft 36 Commuter has a cruising speed of around 30mph and a top speed around 40mph. Powered by twin ILMOR 380hp engines with digital throttles, she has a strong yet smooth throttle response with a sound reminiscent of a european sports car...not too loud, but you know it is there.
The ILMOR engines are freshwater cooled for durability and feature variable valve timing for extra performance. The dual-equal hydraulic cam phaser adjusts camshaft timing at same rate for intake and exhaust valves, advancing cam timing for low end torque and slowing cam timing for high RPM horsepower.
The result is a reliable and well mannered power system that is ideally matched to a vessel of Grand Craft caliber.
