About this Grand Banks 47 Eastbay FB

English

This exceptional Eastbay 47 is the next to the last one of the series built.  Nicely optioned out as built and then periodically upgraded including a

recent Freedom Lift and Flying Bridge Enclosure and EXTENSIVE mechanical and electrical systems service and upgrades

 as well as being otherwise pro-actively maintained she will be an easy boat to get into for the new lucky owner.

These handsome, well built and beautifully performing yachts are very much sought after and rarely last long on the market.  This one certainly won't!

Additional


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 24+ 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) 

 

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.

 

The tender and cover do not convey as well as artwork, owners personal items and hand held VHF and binoculars.
