With an 800-gallon fuel capacity, the Eastbay 50SX has a 409-nautical-mile range at a 25-knot cruising speed. Grand Banks

In 2013, I ran the Grand Banks Eastbay 50SX. Her chic, low-profile lines, raked trunk cabin and sweptback superstructure that retained the yacht’s Downeast-inspired DNA all impressed me.

Notable features: Satin-finish teak was standard, and all-high-gloss woodwork or gloss trim was optional. The yacht’s 6-foot-8-inch salon headroom enhanced interior volume. A 60-inch-wide cockpit door joined the indoor and outdoor spaces. Her hull was foam-cored fiberglass.

Belowdecks: Two staterooms, two heads and a galley-down were standard. Three staterooms with two heads and a galley-up were an option.

Availability: At press time, two 2014 Eastbay 50SX yachts were for sale, asking $1.72 million and $1.64 million.

From the Archives

“This is the first Grand Banks built with Volvo Penta’s IPS pod drives. My test vessel featured twin 700 hp engines. On a run from Newport, Rhode Island, to Stonington, Connecticut, the 50SX cruised across Rhode Island Sound at about 27 knots.” — Yachting, November 2013
