Grand Banks – Eastbay 43 Flybridge for sale

£ 224,950

Brixham, South West


Remarks :

Grand Banks Eastbay 43 Flybridge Motor Yacht ’Privateer’ is on the market, and presents a wonderful, rare opportunity for a lucky and discerning boat buyer to get their hands on a gem. Built by Grandbanks, this Eastbay 43 is a show-stopper, with all of the magic and timeless charm of these New England styled workhorses. Solid through and through and built to the highest standards.

Powered by a pair of Caterpillars, ‘Privateer’ is capable of a surprising 26 knots at full chat, but will cruise all day at 20-22 knots. Thanks to her amazing sea keeping qualities, when it gets a little choppy you won’t need to slow down until well after the others speed kings have gone running for cover!

A rare feature of ‘Privateer’ is the flybridge, which is ideal for sports fishing or just for lazing in the sun.

Needs to be seen and sailed to be fully appreciated, and we’re ready to throw the gauntlet down to any doubters!
