43' Grand Banks Eastbay SX 2005
This one will not disappoint you! She has had exceptional care by a fastidious owner who has maintained her to the highest standards expected in this class of yachts. All books and records are available. The seller’s change of plans for a larger yacht dictates the sale.
"SUNDAZE" is an exceptional example of the very successful GRAND BANKS 43 Eastbay SX. This hard back enclosed salon express was among the first of a series of enclosed climate controlled, weatherproof cruising express yachts. She is designed by the leading design firm of C. Raymond Hunt Associates and built to the industry’s highest standards by GRAND BANKS in Singapore. The Teak Interior is simply superb, and finished in the dramatic high gloss. She offers 2 sleeping cabins, the master forward with centerline modified queen and guest cabin to starboard with upper and lower bunks. The head has a separate stall shower, functional galley down opens to the salon deck above allowing extra light and visibility. The helm and salon deck is comfortable with fixed and free standing seating, satellite TV and Bose surround sound stereo. Cruising at a commanding 27 knots with incredibly low sound levels and soft dry ride could not be better. You are encouraged to inspect this vessel in your search for a premium quality cruising express.
Grand Banks built the boat using hand laid fiberglass laminates over foam core and Vinylester resin beneath the waterline and a factory epoxy barrier coat. The structure is among the most robust in the industry and is noticeable in the solid quiet ride. The highest quality components are used in the areas of deck and hull fittings, plumbing and electrical.
The East Bay “SX” stands for Sedan Express and the SX features a complete hard enclosure with aft windows and a split entry door. By far, the most preferred East Bay model.
Enter from the cockpit you will appreciate the open size of the cockpit with port and starboard aft facing seats and a protected bimini overhead. The cockpit and molded side steps feature deck teak. The side decks are wide and offer excellent safety with high stanchions and rails. The cabin and cabin top have stainless steel handrails to aid in maneuverability. Access to the bow is easy and safe. You enter the main salon through two doors. The salon is large and offers a settee to port and a barrel chair starboard.

Down three steps you enter the galley to port. The galley is large and offers excellent food storage and preparation spaces. Across from the salon to starboard is the guest cabin with twin bunks and storage lockers and a privacy door. Further forward to port is the head with a Vacu-Flush toilet, vanity and storage while across to starboard is the separate shower stall with seating. All the way forward is the master cabin with a centered walk around queen berth, plenty of storage with cabinets, drawers and lockers.

The interior is stunning with high gloss varnished teak, matching fabrics and a teak and holly sole. This one will amaze!
The classic U-Shaped Galley is functional and comfortable in a seaway. Located immediately at the bottom of the companionway steps it is easily accessible while underway. With the advent of the SX model comes the open to above concept which invites interaction with guests in the salon and allows natural light to flood into the galley through the windshield.
The electrical panel is located along the starboard side of the steps leading onto the lower cabins and the battery switches are under the first step tread. All within easy access for the helm.
Easy engine room access through a hatch in the salon sole. Stainless steel ladder entry and plenty of room for engine maintenance and checks. Engines, transmissions and generator all are easily accessible. Removable teak grates protect the engine room sole.
Well cared for and ready for her new owner, "SUNDAZE" will not disappoint you! The current owners have decided to look for a larger yacht and reluctantly place "SUNDAZE" for sale.
