The Grand Banks Eastbay 49 is a top-quality hardtop express whose elegant appearance and meticulous construction represent the ultimate in classic American yachting. A handsome yacht with a long foredeck and traditional Downeast styling, she’s built on a modified deep-V hull with a short keel and prop pockets for reduced draft. If the Eastbay’s elegant two-stateroom, two-head interior—a blend of hand-rubbed teak cabinetry, a teak-and-holly cabin sole, Corian counters and custom hardware, her spacious semi-enclosed helm deck (where guests will certainly prefer to congregate) provides comfortable seating for a small crowd. The beautifully finished molded hardtop is an integral part of the design, and access to the engine room is through a hinged section of the cockpits bench seat. Additional features include wide side decks, a power-assisted center windshield panel, transom door and a teak swim platform. The large engine room is a plus with easy cockpit access and access between engines near helm.

Twin Caterpillar 660 hp Cat 3196TA diesels will cruise this 49 Eastbay about 24 knots (around 28 knots top) and her bow thruster makes docking a breeze.  Both Engines have been upgraded with new style turbos and replaced injectors, etc.  Air conditioning upgraded with new fans and new duct work as well as refrigeration serviced.  Call today for more information.

The helm area combines as an upper salon layout which features a port side u-shaped settee around a teak table with folding leaves. Along the starboard side of this area is a double helm seat and teak cabinet storage. Just aft is a straight settee and to port is a matching double helm seat and cabinetry.  The expanse of windows brings light and views pouring into the large area.   A U-line ice maker is in the starboard aft corner.

Below deck, the layout offers two staterooms, including the forward master with en-suite head and shower stall. To port is the guest stateroom with one double bed and hanging locker space, across from a starboard-side guest head. Completing the lower deck layout is a U-shaped galley to port with reefer style fridge and freezer, Opposite to starboard is a u-shaped settee for dining or relaxing and a hand-made dinette table which is a signature of all Grand Banks yachts. In this case, a dinette table offers folding leaves, tall bottle storage, and reversible felt-lined cup holders that turn over to elegantly nest flush to the surface.
