Wellington Yacht Partners currently has Uncharted, a GrandBanks 47 East Bay Flybridge, listed for $749,000. The 2007 Downeast-style flybridge yacht has a two-stateroom, two-head layout. A straight and stately sheerline and trunk cabin help to form the yacht’s timeless profile.
Sole-to-ceiling satin-finished teak, light tones and natural lighting give this 47-footer’s salon a warm, inviting atmosphere. Guests will find seating on both sides of the salon with two club chairs to starboard, separated by an entertainment center with a retractable flat-screen TV, and a three-person, L-shaped sofa with a folding coffee table to port. The lower helm station is to starboard with side-deck access via a door next to it, a great setup for shorthanded cruising. There is bench seating for companions to port.
Forward and down a few steps is the Grand Banks Eastbay 47 Flybridge’s galley, two staterooms and two heads. The galley is immediately to port with a U-shaped countertop, a convection oven/microwave, a sink, stowage, a cooktop and a top-loading refrigerator and freezer. Forward of the galley is the second head, which doubles as a day head. The forepeak owners’ stateroom has a centerline berth and an en suite head. The starboard guest stateroom has twin berths.
When it comes to outside space, the teak cockpit is a blank slate. Owners can add some loose chairs for sundowners with friends, or put a few rods in the rod holders and let the kids catch dinner. Then again, why choose?
Spiral stairs lead to the flybridge where there is an L-shaped sofa and fixed table set abaft the two-seat upper helm station. The flybridge can become an all-weather space by zipping shut its brand-new polycarbonate enclosure.
Twin 700 hp Caterpillar C12 diesels provide power for Uncharted giving it a reported 32-knot top hop. Yachting ’s original test of the Grand Banks 47 Eastbay Flybridge had the same engines and we reported, “The 47FB consumed just two gallons per mile, whether we were doing 14 knots or 25 knots, which gives a skipper some good choices.”
It’s worth noting that Uncharted‘s engines have just 985 hours on them.
Some notable features on this yacht include a new Freedom Lift (dinghy not included in sale), new Garmin electronics, a 2022 Grand Banks installed flybridge hardtop with lighting, 1,000 hour service on mains and generator completed, new after-cooler cores, new exhaust risers, new Poseidon interior window shades in salon, a new Yamaha entertainment system, a new ice maker, new flybridge upholstery, new salon upholstery, new exterior side and windshield mesh screens and three new air-conditioning compressors.
Read the Whole Story From the Yachting Archive: Grand Banks 47 Eastbay Flybridge
“So, it was a surprise in the mid-1990s when Grand Banks broke the traditional mold and introduced a series of New England-style express cruisers. To the marine world, it couldn’t have been more shocking if Rolls Royce had started building pickups or Moet & Chandon offered a diet cola.
Labeling them as Eastbay yachts originally was a good idea, separating the brands, but the company is now bringing them back into the fold as the Eastbay Series by Grand Banks. That’s an equally good idea at this point, because it helps underline some of the differences between the two lines while still emphasizing the heritage and quality of Grand Banks.” – Yachting, 2007
Where is Uncharted located? The yacht is currently lying in Coral Gables, Florida.
