Why you should consider joining the Chesapeake Bay Grand Banks Owner's Association

The CBGBOA is an association of current, former, and prospective owners of Grand Banks yachts.  We also welcome owner's who have a cruising vessel similar to a Grand Banks.  We sponsor social activities, cruises and the exchange of information and ideas.


Our goals are to:

  • Create opportunities for social interaction among owners, potential owners and other individuals having an appreciation for boats bearing the Grand Banks brand name.
  • Foster enjoyable, knowledgeable and safe boating via cruising and rendezvous events.
  • Provide a means of communicating between members, relative to recreational boating, by publishing a newsletter and maintaining a website.

  • Promote an understanding of our boats with emphasis on maintenance and technical issues.
  • Promote pride in ownership of the Grand Banks brand.

  • Promote a relationship with Grand Banks Yachts, Ltd., its dealers and maintenance facilities as well as vendors that have an expressed interest in our boats.
