Choose Grins for Your Lake Superior Boat Rental
Grins, the Sun Odyssey 36i, is a high-performance cruising yacht built for comfort and designed for those looking for a relaxed way of getting away from it all. The cutting-edge Sun Odyssey family design gives Grins the personality of a real blue-water boat, while its technical fittings are unequaled, and include top brands such as Harken for properly-sized deck fittings and Selden for top-class spars.
Unique in a 36-foot boat, Grins is laid out in a three-cabin version which includes three double berths. This provides comfort and privacy for up to six people. The salon converts to an additional sleeping area, providing berths for a total of nine people. The cockpit is great for lounging at anchor with a generous teak cockpit table.
The controls are all led aft, and there’s a full array of instruments at the helm with a daylight readable chart plotter at the helm.
