The GB43 Eastbay SX was among the first of a trend to enclosed cruising express yachts. The modified deep-V hull is designed by C. Raymond Hunt Associates and built to the industry's highest standards by Grand Banks Yachts in Singapore and Malaysia. The teak interior is exceptional and finished with many coats of optional high gloss varnish.  She's a stoutly built twin diesel boat. Cruising comfortably at 25 knots she is very quiet and delivers a soft dry ride. This boat has a cruising platform well suited to enjoy New England and the southern waters as well.

Vessel Walkthrough

"JEFE" is a single cabin arrangement below with a large master cabin forward and centerline modified queen berth. She is especially well suited for the cruising couple. This arrangement allows for a large head to port with spacious separate stall shower compartment across the passageway to starboard. The functional galley down is also large and opens overhead to the salon deck above providing extra light and visibility. Across from the galley to starboard is a U-shaped dinette with teak table which converts to a double berth. 

The helm and salon deck is versatile and comfortable with Stidd helm seat, bench companion seat with chart table, large L-settee to port with teak table and free standing arm chairs to starboard.  Custom carpeting. The dual opening centerline doors create a generous opening of the salon to the cockpit.
