After the 1989-1993 recession, Trawlers were not the only boat of choice for certain areas of the country, or for newer commuting by water habits. The East Bay 38, at 26,000 lbs., and a true deep V is a heavy displacement rougher water capable Express Cruiser. Grand Banks put this high end Hunt design into production at a time of changing boating habits, and it worked! New York to Eastern Connecticut, Boston to Cape Cod, Miami to Nassau, Sturgeon Bay to North Channel, Annapolis to Block Island can now be short and delightful cruises at one gallon per mile.
One of our recent East Bay 38 buyers compared the EB 38 with the Picnic, and for negotiating inlets like Barnegat Bay Inlet, NJ, the EB won hands down. The buyer stated that with the self bailing aft cockpit deck, the higher helm elevation, center of gravity, speed, etc. it was for him much safer in any following sea inlet conditions he may face on frequent trips from Chesapeake Bay up to Barnegat Bay.
The likelihood that the East Bay construction quality will ever be matched at even multiples of current brokerage prices is 0. Grand Banks just cannot afford to replicate this effort at this time. This makes each and every East Bay worth your consideration.
This East Bay 38 "Dealatis" is an excellent example of the EB 38 at it's best. Well maintained since her launch in1995, this boat has had many upgrades that make her exceptional. She is ready to be launched, with the bottom sanded and high quality ablative bottom paint. For her 2011 season her bottom has been scrubbed with 3M Scotchbrite prior to painting, and her shafts, rudders, spurs, props and trim tabs have been cleaned. This bottom is in great shape! "Dealatis has been stored out of the weather in a building throughout the winter. View the details and pictures of all the upgrades this boat has received further along in our listing.
It all adds up to the ride. Here are some of what this experienced East Bay owner and salesperson knows it takes to be really comfortable, aside from the design and hull construction: seating quality and elevation, visibility, reach to the wheel and controls, plotter and radar location in line of sight, foot and body space on the helm deck,wide steps below, galley layout, head size, low noise, and smoothness of propulsion.
Recent trends in the used boat market indicate that it is the upgraded boats that sell first. It is the lower priced boats that receive upgrades as they are sold. Here is your opportunity to go for the upgraded and low priced vessel!
"Dealatis" will be at The Oxford Yacht Agency in Oxford, MD November 2012.
