About this Grand Banks 47 Eastbay FB


This exceptional Eastbay 47 by Grand Banks has had one set of loving owners.  Featuring the standard two stateroom, two head layout, she has been lovingly maintained and given upgrades every year for the past decade.  Originally kept in the northeast, but most recently in Florida she has always spent approximately seven months per year in inside storage during the off season.  Please read the full specs for details.

(The name PERFECT ARRANGEMENT is reserved by the owners)


Grand Banks are known for their exquisite joiner work and this Eastbay 47 is no exception.  Full satin finished varnished teak interior with gloss finished trim and  varnished teak and holly sole.  The companionway below is finished with white bulkheads above the chair rail.  Accommodations for four, in a two stateroom layout.  Superb natural light and ventilation with six opening ports, three and two smaller large hatches in the trunk cabin. The helm deck is surrounded in glass with three large windows P&S, one each side of which is a slider with screens, three windshield windows (centerline windshield opens) and three windows including one in the centerline sliding door aft.  When nature does not provide, the four reverse cycle air conditioning units (heat & cool) will keep the interior at a comfortable temperature: from below freezing to temperatures above 100 degrees.  Artificial lighting is equally well provided for with swivel style "tulip" lamps at each berth and settee.

The new 47 Eastbay FB reminds us that while the journey is often its own reward, it doesn't hurt to make port in time to grab a good slip. With standard twin 705-HP engines, getting there at 25+ knots leaves plenty of daylight for entertaining on the Eastbay's spacious flybridge, or unwinding in the warm glow of its graciously appointed salon. All atop a modified deep-V hull designed by Hunt Associates, for plenty of safety and stability no matter how fast - or slow - you choose to cruise. (from Grand Banks literature) 

This 2006 Eastbay 47 was sold to an owner in December 2007, but the vessel never left the dealers dock nor did the owner ever spend a night aboard or put any owner gear on before deciding he preferred the Eastbay 49.  It was immediately re-listed and the current, essentially original owners, purchased her in March of 2008.   She was then brought north and cruised New England 4-5 months per year and stored inside each off season.  Four years ago she went south with similar amounts of time spent cruising from early November through March and into April before again being stored inside in the off season.

The listing broker has over 100 hours of time running Eastbay 47s, they are truly an amazing sea boat, typical of the Hunt designed hulls - quiet, dry, and capable.  They are equally easy to handle.

Hull & Deck

The bottom is finished with blue ablative anti-fouling and was stripped, barrier coated and refinished in 2018.

The decks and house are partially cored fiberglass with two tone non-skid painted on Moon Dust Awlgrip on white gel coat.  The cockpit has a teak decking overlay which is glued down.

Deck Layout:

Spacious full width cockpit with spiral steps leading to the flying bridge and easy steps up to the side decks.  Three large lazarettes capable of handling all of the loose gear one might desire to stow.  At the forward end of the cockpit there is a locker with shelves to starboard and optional Miele electric grill and wet bar  with Raritan ice maker and sink to port.  On centerline the steps accessing the salon are on a hydraulic lift and pop up to provide walk in access to the engine room.  PERFECT ARRAGNEMENT is equipped with the optional 3-4 person transom seat aft.

Wide side decks with waist high polished stainless steel safety rails with gates P&S provide easy access going forward.  Polished stainless steel anchor pulpit, deep lockers for fenders and lines P&S at the bow.
