About Us


It’s Just That We Love These Boats!

Join us! Fly the PSGBOA burgee with pride.The Puget Sound Grand Banks Owners Association is an informal group of Grand Banks, Eastbay, Aleutian and other American Marine boat owners– currently over 400 families strong. We hold a Spring Rendezvous each year…usually the second weekend in May.
If you are a Grand Banks, Eastbay, Aleutian or other American Marine boat owner and cruise the waters of Puget Sound, The San Juan Islands, or The Gulf Islands, or in British Columbia… please join us. Send us your name, email address, postal address, boat name, GB hull number and year… and you will be added to our list (Click on “Join Us!” from top menu).

Re the above note…we’re trying, from now on, to communicate with everyone by e-mail and through our web site, so be sure to see that we have your current email address if you want to be kept in the loop!

Always, always…we can use volunteers…to help with mailings, organizing events…and in particular– producing the once-a-year rendezvous that has become the best annual Grand Banks gathering on planet earth. How to connect? Easy…just send an email!

And by the way, if you need a source for just about anything, boating-wise, check out our Sponsors page. The companies listed help support PSGBOA. They would appreciate your business in return.

We’ve said it elsewhere, we’ll say it again here: We like hearing from you! We’re always looking for news, cruising stories, notes on repair/maintenance/enhancement projects, etc., etc. Drop us a note by e-mail. Send pix and other attachments. (Click on “Contact Us” in left column.) If need be, we can follow up by phone.

    Thank you for enquiring. At this time, we do not accept classified ads on our site. If there is sufficient interest, we would be happy to revisit this.

    I apologize for editing you comment, but it was necessary to be consistent with our policy.

    Two quick items: 1. are you considering a member classification for former GB owners, especially if interested in finding another suitable GB to own, co-own, or charter; 2. because of #1, I second the point about classifieds — I, too, would be interested in such a feature, provided postings all relate to GB matters and are non-commercial. (feel free to edit or ignore in the thread)

    Hi Dennis, Thanks for your comments; we currently do not have the capacity within our volunteer-driven organization to maintain a classified-style listing system or message board. We do have supporters of our organization that represent used boats for sale (eg NW Explorations and Stan Miller Yachts), and would encourage you to contact them. We do have some ‘members’ who do not currently own a Grand Banks; if you would like to be on our email list (and are not already), we would be happy to add you.
