2008 Grand Banks 45 Eastbay SX

  • 45 ft
  • Cruiser
  • Essex, CT, US

Yacht price :



The 45 Eastbay SX is a full-featured Down East cruiser that complements assertive performance with stylish grace. Her twin CAT C-9 engines will have you quickly nearing 30 knots, cruising atop a proven C. Raymond Hunt-designed hull that out-performs the imitators. Inside, accommodations are superior to any in her class, with a generous master stateroom that includes a private head with stall shower, and a guest stateroom that is equally spacious. The 45SX also brought some new features to the Eastbay Series, from her ergonomic helm to the optional sunroof, to an aft salon window that disappears at the touch of a button. And everywhere you turn: more light, more views, more ways to enjoy those prized moments when you're at sea on or on the hook.
