'Encore' is a stunning Eastbay 43 HX that has been exceptionally well cared for and lightly used by its two owners to date. She has been stored indoors over winter most of her life and thoughtfully upgraded where needed.
Grand Banks Eastbay line does not need much introduction, the partnership of Grand Banks quality construction and C. Raymond Hunt & associates deep- v design was a winning combination. The 43 particularly is a sweet spot in the lineup offering two cabins, plenty of storage space, a spacious helm deck and cockpit all in a well-proportioned package.
'Encore' features a varnished teak transom not often seen on Eastbay 43s that looks beautiful against her flag blue hull. Additional varnished teak details include a sculpted rail on the aft edge of the helm deck, hand carved trail boards and additional eyebrow trim on the hardtop edge.

Only 1100 original hours in twin 435hp CATs
