The Grand Banks 46 Europe is one of the most popular models of the Grand Banks Heritage series, which began with the legendary Grand Banks 36 in the 1960s.

There is no doubt that the Europa 46 is a serious cruise boat, designed for long trips. There is plenty of storage space in the cabins, galley, cockpit and even on the flybridge. The layout of the Viva la Vida has as usual a Galley-up and a spacious salon, but what is not standard is the third cabin that can be reached in the back of the salon. There are two more sleeping places to be found, so that the Viva la Vida offers sleeping space for six people. To ensure that it stays wonderfully cool in the third cabin, an air conditioning has been installed.

Motorically, the Viva la Vida has two times 420 hp strong Caterpillar engines. With which the ship achieves a maximum speed of 18 knots and a cruise speed of 10 knots.

Viva la Vida, a wonderfully spacious ship with six berths.
