She is ready to go cruising and will satisfy a rigorous survey. HONAH LEE is a 2008 Grand Banks Eastbay 45SX, a beautifully finished, two stateroom boat easily able to cruise at 23 knots with her Caterpillar C-9 ACERT engines. This very seaworthy deep-V yacht was designed by C. Raymond Hunt Associates and built by Grand Banks. She has the optional layout with the galley up,and a two stateroom, two head arrangement forward. From the cockpit the salon is entered through a Dutch door, the clear top half of which opens separately. The galley is located in the port aft corner of the cabin where a large power window drops, opening the galley to the cockpit, and serves as a convenient pass-through for food and drinks. The helm is forward and to starboard and enjoys 360 degree visibility. Across from the helm an L-shaped, raised settee is arranged to allow guests the same visibility as the helmsman, and this area also converts quickly to a berthing area for two. The overhead features a power sun roof with an OceanAire shade, and at the push of a button the forward center windshield opens as well, so the whole cabin can be opened to the great outdoors. The berthing accommodations are four steps down and forward of the helm, and throughout ports, hatches and dorade ventilators offer exceptional air flow when desired. The master cabin is fully forward, has an en suite head and, with its center queen, is just as large as the master on a Grand Banks 47. The guest cabin with its twin berths is just aft on the housed . On deck the hardware is all heavy duty, highly polished stainless steel. Substantial hand rails and wide side decks make going forward easy and safe. This is a wonderful family boat easily operated by two people.

On board the Eastbay 45 SX by means of the side decks and down a couple of steps port or starboard forward in the cockpit, or over the swim platform and through a transom door. The deck house is entered through an acrylic/teak Dutch-type door from the cockpit. The space is very open and attractive. The interior teak joiner work is finished in a satin rubbed effect with teak and holly soles throughout the boat. The visibility is fabulous, and sitting at the Stidd helm seat, the captain has an unobstructed 360 degree view. The helm is forward to starboard and the electronics and all of the other controls are easily within reach. HONORA LEE is very well equipped, with two Garmin 5212 Touch Screen Plotters, Garmin Radar, Simrad auto pilot and much more (see equipment list.) Overhead is a large power sun roof with an OceanAire shade system. A forward center windshield, a large window aft, and the sun roof all open and close at the touch of a button. There are also large sliding windows to either side. Across from the helm is a large Lshaped settee upholstered in cream-colored ultrasuede. A beautiful teak inlayed hilow table converts the settee into a bed. Across from the settee, aft of the Stidd helm seat, a teak cabinet houses a 23 inch Sharp Flat Screen TV on a lift, an FM Stereo, DVD player, and a HD Satellite Receiver System. Aft on the port side is the galley – located in just the right place. A large power window opens the galley to the cockpit, and creates a convenient pass through for food and drinks. The countertops are an attractive black Silestone in the galley as well as the work station across on the starboard side. The cabinetry houses an under counter DC refrigerator and a small DC freezer, as well as three drawers for dish storage, etc. Cooking is accomplished with a sharp convection/microwave oven and a Seaward ceramic, three burner cook top. The Galley has good general storage, 360 degree visibility, and access directly to the cockpit. The deckhouse is very inviting, and with the sun roof and windows open, it's better than being outside.

Each cabin enjoys a high level of ventilation and natural lighting with a combination of overhead hatches and opening ports, augmented with dorade ventilation.

With its ready access to the galley and salon, the spacious cockpit is bound to be one of the chief gathering areas on the boat. The ice maker and Glendinning cablemaster are opportunely located here. Storage lockers and a generous, accessible lazarette make this accommodating living area a functional one as well. Security and ease of movement forward along the side decks makes travel to the foredeck unintimidating under any conditions. A substantial anchor mount/roller and heavy duty windlass contribute to easing that chore. Convenient storage lockers are in deck to either side of the windlass and its central chain locker, and there is an anchor wash down spigot in the port locker. Footing is very sure over all the decks with their molded-in non skid.
