Here are a few things we love about the boat:

We have had a wonderful family time on the Ella Rose with all the kids swimming and jumping off the top and kayaking and paddle boarding around. There are quite a few different spaces to sit and enjoy the boat, we like to sit up the front while the autopilot is driving and have had wonderful times with dolphins surfing the bow waves. The kids normally sit up the top and we eat meals in the saloon or out the back around the barbeque.

The top deck is perfect for the kids to be up there in the sun with the stereo going – there’s enough shade with the canvas cover so those that don’t want full sun have that option.

One of my fondest memories of the Ella Rose is sitting in the afternoon sun having drinks on the back deck talking and listening to music after my husband had taught his son how to clean and fillet the fish they caught that day down on the duck board using the fitted fish cleaning board.

Another great spot to sit is on the very top deck for drinks in the early evening sun and you get a wonderful view of the rest of the bay and boats.

For a day trip we have had more than 15 of us on the boat and it doesn’t feel at all crowded. We have had 5-6 teenagers and 2 adults regularly away on the Ella Rose for weekends.

The galley works really well and the gas fridge is spacious and practical and the tall pantry is great storage. Being and older design the amount of storage around the boat is incredible and well suited for long trips or a live on boat.

The bathrooms are everything you need and having 2 toilets and showers is perfect for a boat this size. The water tanks are huge and take quite a while to fill, the diesel storage is also extensive meaning we haven’t had to fill up constantly. Small details such as the hatch in the benchtop to access the gas bottle from inside is a great touch.

Being a Grand Banks, she cuts through a choppy sea well.

The anchor is 40 kg Rocna  anchor with 100m of chain and  a rebuilt winch.
