About this Grand Banks Eastbay 38

The Eastbay 38 is the all-around perfect cruising boat for a couple, even with a small toddler. For the folks that want a handsome, superb riding, strongly built cruiser with Downeast styling, with exceptional accommodations, and let's throw in a good click of speed, the Eastbay 38 fits the bill.

Built by Grand Banks and designed by C. Raymond Hunt, the pedigree of this boat stands tall. The hull is a modified deep-V with a transom deadrise of 20 degrees; ideal balance of style and performance. Throw in the reliable CAT 3208TA diesels with 375 hp each, and you have a boat that can easily cruise between (slow) 8-9 kts. up to 15-24 kts. (fast) and has a max speed of 28 to 30 kts. depending upon weight and sea conditions. With a short keel, the boat tracks beautifully and produces an easily appreciated dry rid even in a chop.

Maneuverable side decks with a spacious cockpit, comfortable pilothouse with dinette and table, and accommodations below offering a large, well designed galley, a convertible settee and table for inside dining and an occasional double berth, a head area with shower, and then a master stateroom forward with full-size V-berth with a filler making for a huge bed.

Repainted, this EB 38 is sharp with its Emerald Green hull white non-skid decks and a custom stretch soft top over a solid aluminum frame. Swim step aft and easy access to the lazarete and power hatch to engine compartment.

We welcome you to visit to inspect this pedigree, Downeast Cruiser with high gloss varnished rails keeping the heritage of the Grand Banks history. Classic, economical and comfortable = Pride of Ownership.

Layout and Accommodations

Upon entering the Eastbay 38, you will see the typical, high quality craftsmanship associate with the Grand Banks name.  Solid teak interior with exceptional joinerwork.  Plenty of hatches, port holes, and windows to flood the boat with natural light.

Down about 4 stairs (with storage underneath) you step into the galley on port and the dining area, table and convertible settee on starboard.  Electrical panels are on the back side of the helm station above.  Galley is u-shaped and has ample storage and counter space.  Dinette is large, open, and easily will seat 4 people for a dinner.  Upholstery is a ultra-suede tuffed Emerald Green and there is a natural colored carpet lying over the teak cabin sole, which is in excellent condition.  3 overhead hatches and 6 opening port provide excellent ventilation.  The EB 38 can sleep 4.

Going forward the head and shower are on port with a pocket door and then storage lockers on starboard.  Electric head with a holding tank.  Large mirror and overhead lighting.  Forward is the master stateroom with a full beam V-berth and a filler to created a massive bed.  I counted 8 cabinets and 6 drawers for storage.  Overheads are covered with a light vinyl and the sides are all covered with a richly stained teak.

Helm station in the pilothouse area is well designed.  Visibility is 100% and 360-degrees.

Captains chair for the helm and L-shaped settee on port with a table.  Also on port is a chart storage compartment that also serves as a chart table.  This area has a rigid aluminum frame that supports a tightly stretched top with side and rear window panels of clear acrylic.  The pilothouse area is air conditioned.  There is also an ice maker available.  All rear and side panels can be easily rolled up for openness.  Headroom is 6'5".  Front window shield has an opening center section with 3 different stops for ventilation when underway or at anchor.

Large cockpit with teak sole allows for outdoor seating or entertaining and when the weather closes in or there is a chill in the air, all occupants can easily move inside into the heated or air conditioned pilothouse, which has a full enclosure.

The Eastbay 38 has ample headroom in the salon, galley, and dinette area.  Head room is good throughout the boat.

This EB 38 has the preferred power choice of the reliable CAT 3208TA diesels rated at 375 hp each side.  The hours are approximately 1,875 (one will see the port engine has more hours, but it has been determined that the previous owner was in the habit of leaving the keys on.  Since this owner bought the boat, there has been no reason to believe that the higher hours on the port engine are real).  

The gear boxes are Twin Disc with a 2:1 reduction.  Propellers are bronze 4-blade props at 25 x 29.

Remarks

This Eastbay 38 Express with semi-solid top over the pilothouse area is a pleasure to show.  We have known the owner since he bought the boat.  His usage has been minimal.  Boat is hauled each winter and dry-stored.  We had a bit of some hull discoloration in one spot and the boat was blended and repainted in that area; no evidence now exists.

With handsome gold cove strip and white boot top, the Emerald green hull with brightwork is a stunning looking yacht.

These EB 38's are a perfect answer for couples wishing to cruise.  Dry, efficient, and comfortable.  Power and Motoryacht sea trials produced with this CAT 3208TA package, max speeds of 33.5 kts.  Always depending upon weight and sea conditions, we have seen 30 kts. several times.  An efficient fast cruise is 16 kts. at approximately 1,800 rpms with a burn of approximately 15 gph.  The ride of this Hunt hull design speaks for itself.
