Whatever the contemporary upgrades, the teak is still the main interior feature that makes the 46 Eastbay distinctly Grand Banks. The company prides itself on the quality of its teak, and for good reason. While many builders buy theirs through a middleman, Grand Banks sends someone from the factory, a teak aficionado, to buy first-grade teak logs directly from a source in Myanmar. The logs are shipped to the Grand Banks plant in Malaysia, where they are kiln-dried for 14 days, air-dried and cut to specification by veteran woodworkers. Interior teak receives six coats of varnish; exposed teak gets seven. As a result, the joinery aboard the 46 Eastbay looks uniform in appearance, with no color mismatches or zebra striping. Add the rich navy-blue hull with white boot stripe, and it’s obvious the 46 will turn heads at the dock.
