1996 Grand Banks East Bay

A beautiful example of Grand Banks classic express cruiser with twin Cat 375 hp 3208s (~1,160 hours each). Well maintained and updated with New England base of operations. The perfect boat for weekend cruising, social activities and generally enjoying the water.

Few design firms can draw both a beautiful hull form as well as a hull that can take you home in almost any sea conditions. The Eastbay 38 accomplishes both! You might say that the Eastbay 38  started this genre of classic downeast looking boats that run with the speed of many "go fast" boats of this size. Deep V, hard chines, and proper weight distribution combined with the build quality of Grand Banks, and you have a pedigree which is very rare on the market today.
