Project: Grand Banks 50 Eastbay SX

Presented in 1993, the Eastbay series has been a growing success for Grand Banks and today with this new upcoming 50 project the range features eight models from 39 to 55 feet.  The Grand Banks 50 Eastbay will be the second in size of the range, and continues long standing traditions, as the Hunt designed hull or more recent additions as the use of ZF Zeus pods for propulsion.  New more aggressive styling has been used on the 50, to make it standout as the latest model  of the Eastbay series.  SX will stand for the hardtop version, but an FB flybridge version is also available for those who like to helm in fresh air, and have an extra entertainment up top.  PowerYacht will show this in few days time. The main deck will be divided by a patio door creating for a spacious area joining out doors with inside.  Inside Grand Banks offers various options from two or three cabins below decks, to a mid level or upper main deck galley.  Engine power and performance data is not so far given, minus that we know that ZF Zeus pods will be used as propulsion.
