Project: Grand Banks 55 Eastbay FB

Grand Banks Yachts enters the fall boat show season on an upswing, with highly anticipated exhibits at events across the US and in Europe. The company is also using the occasion to announce its newest model, the 55 Eastbay FB, a flybridge-topped version of the 55-foot Downeast lobster traditional looking yacht now leading this six model series by Grand Banks.  The 55 Eastbay FB is currently under construction for a launch in 2012, when it delivers to an owner in the northeast United States. Like all yachts in the Eastbay Series, the 55FB combines a seaworthy modified Vee hull by C. Raymond Hunt Associates with GB's acclaimed build quality and craftsmanship, all in a timelessly-styled design. This model features a spacious flying bridge with Stidd helm seats, handmade teak dining table surrounded by a large L-settee, plus lots of room for entertaining and enjoyment. Down below, owners can choose between a two or three stateroom layouts and options for up or down galley configurations. Stylish, luxurious and with a long list of standard equipment, the Grand Banks 55 Eastbay FB is also a powerful performer with 32 knots max speeds.
