Introduced in 1994, the Eastbay 38 Express launched Grand Banks in a completely new direction. She was the first in a rapidly evolving series of Eastbay yachts whose classic Downeast lines and Hunt-designed hulls were a departure from Grand Bank’s previous trawler heritage.
The quality and care with which the Eastbay 38 was constructed is clearly evident from her varnished teak toerails to her finely finished interior. This is an exceptional 38. "Cara" has enjoyed excellent ownership, and you can benefit from such great care and maintenance. Check out her details.
We value your time. Please contact us to make an appointment to view this yacht. Steve Snyder 252-725-1506
