    M/Y Grindstone has given its former owners years of amazing experiences - from the Bahamas to Maine. She turns heads in every harbor and is one of the most discernible cruising yachts on the East Coast.

    Reluctantly, the owners have decided it is time to move on to their next chapter in life. She has entered the donation program and is currently available under a lease to purchase option.

    This handsome motoryacht offers comfortable accommodations for six, three crew and just delightful living spaces. From an open flybridge to an enclosed aft deck, to a formal dining room (correct - dining room, not dining area), M/Y Grindstone will please the most discriminating cruisers and entertainers.

    She has been in a consistent program of inspection, maintenance and upgrades. There is very little on M/Y Grindstone that is original, although all the upgrades have been in keeping with the original and timeless design.

    A partial list of upgrades and condition:
