  • 2014 Grand Banks Eastbay 50 SX


Built as a Family boat and Family plans changed making SPRINGBOK an opportunity to acquire a thoughtfully conceived Grand Banks built Eastbay 50SX, their latest and greatest,
A literally brand new 2014 Eastbay 50 SX built by owners of 2 previous Eastbay’s.   He and his wife were instrumental in the creation and design of Hull #1 of the Eastbay 49, a total grand slam home run.  They decided to become involved in building the new Eastbay 50SX using their experience to create a particularly special family oriented yacht, properly outfitted with the best of equipment and state of the art electronics.  Her Volvo IPS pod drives, with helm and cockpit control joysticks, provide easy maneuvering in the tightest of situations.  Because of a change in lifestyle plans, this yacht is available right now without the six to nine months wait to build a new one.  You could be sailing and enjoying SPRINGBOK this summer.
Original GB standard warranty through July of 2015 and hull warranty to August of 2018 are transferable providing added assurance to this unique opportunity to own a totally and properly commissioned vessel from an owner with the highest of standards.
Note: Speeds and performance based on sea trials and conditions reported in Boat Test for this boat in Feb. 2014 Power and Motoryacht magazine article.
