The Eastbay Series By Grand Banks

The Eastbay series of fast cruisers, designed by C. Raymond Hunt and Associates and built by Grand Banks Yachts, combines modern, high performance with classic good looks and world class craftsmanship. This popular line of swift, comfortably riding yachts starts with the 38 Express. With over 85 built in the first few years, the Eastbay 38 has proven to be particularly popular with experienced yachtsmen who appreciate the seaworthiness of its modified deep-V hull design.

While there have been a number of attempts to create similar boats, one quickly finds that there is no comparison between the Eastbay's pedigree, offshore performance and other look alike models. Indeed, the classic good looks of the 38 Express have started a resurgence of the handsome "downeast" styled boat. Thanks to the keen eyes of C. Raymond Hunt and Associates and the talented hands of the boat builders at Grand Banks, the boating world has been treated to a welcome change from all the predictable looking production boats seen on our waterways.
