Broker's comments

ECLIPSE is a boat worth getting excited about for three reasons: layout, equipment, and condition. The layout on ECLIPSE is one that is very rare yet very attractive for most Eastbay owners. The master cabin is much larger with more storage and floor space than the standard layout. The guest cabin berth is more accommodating for a couple, has more storage, and has access to the washing machine (rather than going into the engine room). The guest head on the standard Eastbay layout is a wet-head, on ECLIPSE your guests have private access to a separate shower stall. The pilothouse layout has two large forward facing bench seats with freshly upholstered cushions that offer much more storage under the bench seats, storage which would be lost if you had free-standing single chairs.

The Equipment on board ECLIPSE has everything you desire on an Eastbay 49. Below are some highlights:

  • The flow from the cockpit to pilothouse is greatly enhanced by the custom 1” thick acrylic door into the pilothouse.
  • The swim platform drops into the water to lift a tender out of the water with the assist of a hydraulic TNT lift.
  • For the hot summer days, the pilothouse has the optional 2nd air conditioner.
  • The galley has two large refrigerators with the optional top-access freezer. The galley also has a propane stove/oven so you don’t have the run the generator while on a mooring.
  • ECLIPSE has a bow and stern thruster for drama-free docking
  • Her electronics have recently been upgraded to two large Garmin touch screens and a new HD radar

ECLIPSE has been kept in excellent condition. The owners had the exterior teak stripped and refinished in summer of 2017, the aft canvas is new and improved (spring 2017) with the snaps replaced by a track system for easier use and a cleaner look. The hull is awlgrip dark blue. The 1000hr engine service has been completed. The aftercoolers and heat exchangers were removed, cleaned, and pressure tested winter of 2017.
