The all-new 50 Eastbay is the company’s latest addition to its “Down East” series of luxury performance motoryachts, and will be available in both salon-express and flybridge versions. The assertive, fluid lines of the 50 Eastbay and its dynamic new profile represent an exciting evolution in style for the entire series.
Also notable is the graceful and open flow between the salon and cockpit, facilitated by a deckhouse that opens almost completely between the two areas. The 50 Eastbay’s arresting new look is complemented by a new pod drive propulsion system that offers improved handling, precision joystick control, better fuel economy and a host of other benefits to owners.
“In 1993, Grand Banks launched the Eastbay Series and pioneered the modern interpretation of the lobster boat as a stylish and powerful Down East cruiser,” said David Hensel, director of brand and marketing at Grand Banks. “Now for 2012, the 50 Eastbay brings a striking new blend of grace, beauty and outstanding performance to a strong and growing segment. We’re very excited to be introducing this model here in Miami.”
The announcement of these two new yachts comes at a time of surging sales for Grand Banks. Over a period of less than ninety days the company has captured approximately US$15 million in new sales of its Heritage, Eastbay and Aleutian models across markets worldwide.
