2001 Grand Banks 43 Eastbay EX

  • 43 ft
  • Cruiser
  • Greenwich, CT, US

Yacht price :



She just completed her 1,000 hour service. This is the finest maintained and the best condition of any 43 on the market. She is just a gem of a boat and will be sure to make her new owner very proud. 

The Grand Banks 43 Eastbay EX was one of the most successful models in the history of an iconic manufacturer with her relatively narrow beam she can take on any sea state with calm smooth operation. And Watermark is easily as well cared for an example of this great boat as you could hope to find on the used market. Her white hull glistens and stem to stern she is a pleasure to board.  The cabin sole below literally looks to have never been walked on and every detail on board shines. She has the sought after single cabin layout which offers such a much more comfortable use of the interior  spaces.  The boat "breathes" so much better than the model with the cramped bunk room for a second stateroom.  Center line queen forward master followed by large dry head to starboard and a large shower to port with abundant storage.  The U shaped settee opposite the galley is huge and affords a feeling of luxury comfort and spaciousness.  The galley is spotless and brags the upgraded pure white corion countertops.   The interior also has the upgraded gloss varnished trim, a seemingly minor detail, but one that just speaks volumes about the stylish pop the cadence of this special boat.  The helm  has the "right" layout with the larger L shaped settee and the highly varnished upgraded yacht table. We are preparing a proper listing presently but wanted to get her on the the market for a potential buyer, please call for more information. 

Watermark is a very special boat and will certainly make a great platform for family fun for her next owner.

Down two steps and aft is the large cockpit area with teak deck.  A built in bench seat is forward to port, and there is ample space for additional chairs and a table in the cockpit, plus there is also a cockpit awning.  The lazarette provides more storage, and a transom door opens to the teak swim platform.
