EAST BY SOUTH is without a doubt the most nicely equipped and maintained vessel in her market segment. Her stunning good looks turn heads all along the waterway and the attention to detail inside and out is top notch, Bruckmann really knocked it out of the park with this boat. She is efficient and maneuverable around the docks and holds her own out at sea with a very pleasant motion. Her owner reports she cruises nicely on plane in the 15kt to 24kt range but can scoot along at 27kt or 28kt if needed. One of her most unique features is the capability to run almost all the ships systems, including the lower deck air conditioning, off her house lithium battery bank for up to 10 hrs without the need for the generator. Her owner has spent many cool nights this past summer in the Bahamas (their favorite place to cruise) using this system.  As a side note, her owners have cruised over 3500nm since taking delivery, the average total fuel consumption for EAST BY SOUTH since has been .97nm/gal…pretty remarkable.  

EAST BY SOUTH is on the market to make way for a larger vessel her owners already have under construction.
