Grand Banks Yachts is set to debut the GB60, a 65-foot cruiser that will include 900-hp Volvo Penta D13 engines and Twin Disc BP300 bow and stern thrusters.

The GB60 also will be delivered with Twin Disc's MGX 5096A QuickShift marine transmissions, Express joystick system at three stations, dual EC300 Power Commander electronic controls with express positioning and the new digital thruster panel.

"We've gone with all Twin Disc equipment as standard, so we're obviously very comfortable with it," Grand Banks managing director Hank Compton said in a statement. "We really like the MGX transmission technology, in particular — it's standard across our full line — and the EJS component is an added bonus for us."
