Grand Banks Yachts Limited is excited to announce the pioneering and highly anticipated Grand Banks 60. Highly successful Australian and North American debuts further established the company’s reputation of designing, engineering and building high-tech, long-range motor yachts that have satisfied cruising owners since 1964. The new Grand Banks 60 incorporates the latest marine technologies, from leading-edge construction to well-proven and reliable propulsion and maneuvering systems. “The GB60 is taking Grand Banks in a whole new direction in terms of appearance, performance, and construction techniques,” says Grand Banks’ CEO Mark Richards. “You really have to take the boat for a ride to get the full experience. There’s just nothing else like it from a performance perspective. Effortless cruising speeds in the low 20-knot range, where you slice through, rather than push the water is a game changer in this market.”

Grand Banks Yachts Limited - the company that pioneered the Downeast-styled yacht with the introduction of the venerable 38 Eastbay EX in 1995 - announces the arrival of the new Eastbay 44 (EB44), the next in a long line of luxury cruising yachts bearing the well-regarded Eastbay nameplate. The new EB44 combines an eye-pleasing blend of contemporary finishes and Downeast lines with an advanced hull design that is capable of safe and comfortable passages in open water. Its modified deep-V hull features a sharp entry for parting the waters ahead, an advanced planing surface aft, and wide reversed chines for added comfort and stability when manoeuvring. "The Eastbay 44 fully delivers the best of both worlds,” says Mark Richards, CEO of Grand Banks. “You’ll experience all the comfort and style you appreciate in a Downeast yacht, but with the legs and cruising speeds to take your adventures farther and faster. This latest generation of Eastbay is also lighter and more efficient."
