54 Eastbay SX 2006

STARDUST - $799,000

Sales Rep: Steve Fithian
Phone: 954-383-1999

STARDUST is an extremely well maintained and extensively updated and upgraded 2006 model Grand Banks 54 Eastbay SX.  She features a custom 2 stateroom 2 head layout; two full heads each with en suite showers. She has Flag Blue Awlgrip hull paint and topsides in Grand Banks White Awlgrip. With her very comfortable updated layout, spacious interior, large cockpit, wide walkaround side decks, extended swim platform, hydraulic dinghy lift, extensive electronics & entertainment systems, she represents one of the most fantastic buys in the downeast express market!

The 54 Eastbay was developed after the introduction of the tremendously successful Eastbay 49 in 1998. There was a high demand for a larger Eastbay model that offered an enclosed salon with two doors and had larger windows with better visibility throughout the helm deck. The helm on the EB54 is approximately 3-feet farther forward than on the 49, so this in combination with the larger windows makes the sight lines perfect. 

The Eastbay 54 is one of the most highly regarded downeast express yachts in her class with her deep-vee hull, substantial weight and Grand Banks high quality build standards combined with Ray Hunt's fantastic design.  She has one of the softest rides on the water whether a day cruise or a long distance trip down the east coast, she's one of the most awesome yachts available in the market today.

STARDUST is simply a fantastic yacht in excellent condition, maintained to the highest degree by her knowledgeable owner, and priced to sell now!
