Miami Beach, Florida


1999 Grand Banks 49 Eastbay HX

The Eastbay 49 is a top quality, down east style express whose elegant appearance and meticulous construction represent the ultimate in classic American yachting. A strikingly handsome yacht with a long foredeck and traditional Downeast styling, she is built on a modified deep “V” hull with a short keel and prop pockets for reduced draft. The Eastbay’s rich two stateroom interior - a blend of hand rubbed Teak cabinetry, Teak and Holly cabin sole, Corian countertops and custom hardware are second to none. The 49 offers a spacious semi-enclosed helm deck where guests will certainly prefer to congregate, provides comfortable seating for a small crowd. The beautifully finished molded hardtop is an integral part of the design, and access into the engine room is through a hinged section of the cockpits bench seat. Additional features include wide side decks, a power assisted center windshield panel, and Teak swim platform with transom door. The Caterpillar 3196TA, 660 hp diesel engines have 1,850 hours. The 49 will cruise at 20 knots and can reach speeds in excess of 28 knots. A distinctive yacht that turns heads in any marina or waterway, this 49 is not to be missed.

Given its generous proportions, the Eastbay 49 offers more room than others in its class. A luxuriously appointed main salon provides a comfortable area for dining, relaxing and entertaining. The master stateroom is located all the way forward and features a private head with stall shower. The twin berth guest stateroom is located to port with a full-size head to starboard. A very large helm deck and Grand Banks quality is present throughout. All interior joinery is done in satin finished teak and executed to the highest yachting standards. The Eastbay 49 is the flagship of the Eastbay family of solid cruisers.

Vessel Walkthrough


A large Teak decked cockpit makes it suitable for fishing or entertaining. Stowing gear is easy with three spacious lazarettes. A large garage door leads directly into the engine room for easy inspection and maintenance. There is easy access to the foredeck by wide walk-around Teak decks. The cockpit is large and features an aft facing cockpit bench seat and three lazarettes. Access to the side decks is made easy by use of port and starboard steps. The side decks are wide making maneuverability simple. From the cockpit and up two steps is the helm deck. A very well laid out helm deck area includes many Eastbay options. The helm chair is a pedestal mounted adjustable chair. Opposite to port is a double wide companion seat, which has an ice maker built-in below with a louvered Teak cabinet door. Forward on the dash area is a Teak enclosed glass covered chart locker. Below the chart locker are two large Teak cabinets with bottle and tackle storage. Aft of the companion seat is an L-Shaped settee with high/low varnished Teak yacht table. To starboard behind the helm seat is a large settee with life jacket storage below. Further aft is a large storage locker as well.

Down 4 steps (with storage beneath each tread) from the helm deck and to starboard is the dinette. Behind the back cushions and under the bottom cushions are additional storage areas. The Teak dinette table has two flush openings for storage. The dinette area is great for dining, entertaining, or relaxing. Across from the settee and to port is the galley. The Galley is U-Shaped and offers Corian countertops, ample storage with double stainless steel sinks, two large holding plate refrigerators and one large in the counter holding plate freezer. Drawers and cabinets provide plentiful storage areas for dishes and food. The galley sole is Teak and Holly.

The guest cabin is forward and to port. The guest stateroom offers twin berths with four drawers under each for storage, a large hanging locker between the berths. Light and ventilation are provided through an overhead hatch and a vent as well as individual reading lamps. The guest head is located across the passageway and is equipped with a fresh water electric head, mirrored vanity, large countertop, and ample cabinet storage.

All the way forward is the master cabin with a luxurious V-berth, there are hanging lockers and drawers which provide plenty of storage. There are additional storage cabinets on each side of the berth. There is an overhead hatch for ventilation and lighting. Custom lighting includes halogen reading lamps, dimmer controlled overhead lights and floor lights. The master en-suite head features a separate stall shower and fresh water electric head with tank tender system.


Located down and on the port side the galley will please even the most discriminating chef.
