Yacht price :



Defiance is a beautiful example of the Grand Banks 45 Eastbay SX, she was built new by her current owners after owning an Eastbay 38 and cruising her extensively for 9 years. She has an excellent layout with the galley down, large master with center island berth, a head with separate shower stall, and lounge/office area that converts into a spacious second stateroom. 
She is very well equipped with a watermaker, Glendinning cablemaster, and custom cockpit seating with 2 custom refrigerators. The pilothouse is light and bright with tons of seating, large windows, a sunroof and 2 electric opening windows. Defiance has been well-maintained by her knowledgeable owners including annual varnish, annual Imron clearcoat on the topsides, and full cooler service in 2019.
Defiance has new bottom paint, fresh varnish and zincs, she is in the water and ready to cruise.  Showings by appointment.
