Perhaps the nicest 49 Eastbay HX available in the country and for all the right reasons starting with her C-12 Caterpillars, her floor plan below with a twin berth guest stateroom and the washer/dryer rare layout. Close to a perfect 10 as they come!! The previous owners had an amazing love affair for this boat and it shows! And top her off with an impressive list of factory custom upgrades simply not found on others. She's fresh, totally serviced and ready to fulfill her next owner's dreams!
Let's start right here:1st thing you notice is a custom 316 grade stainless steel framed cockpit sunshade, fixed-made to go wherever. Great to keep the sun and rain out of the whole cockpit! Teak deck, side steps going forward, giant center lazarette with stainless hydraulic gas struts. Custom aluminum mounted bracket for up to an 8 HP outboard for your Dinghy, also the ships 6 man life raft is stowed here-right where you can gain access, packed in a vilease style bag. Also a fortress 37 emergency anchor with 20' of chain and 190' of rope rode.
A large transom door access to the swim platform, below the platform is a Freedom Lift which was new in 2009 ($35,000), max lifting is 800 lbs. She is remote controlled lift, and the lifting arms are removable when not in use-very nice feature!
Other features include:
Up two steps through a custom fiberglass half door features EZ2CY enclosures including an amazing 90 degrees Lexan corners.
To starboard is the helm station w/controls, gauges, and CAT screens- all built in teak console. Above are three separate panels w/more electronics. To port is a custom chart flat, top-loading stowage locker and a complete dry bar below. There are two forward facing double helms, custom teak companion seating covered in ultra leather w/stowage lockers below.
The entire helm deck flooring is covered in thick sundown laminated lead/foam noise reduction padding with tan carpet above - Super nice feature!!
Overhead is a solid fiberglass factory hard top w/360 degrees visibility and all high quality glass. The glass is coated with aviation grade V-Cool film. It reduces glare, UV factor, and keeps a huge amount of the heat outside! Forward centerline vent, 3 overhead hatches w/screen and side sliding glass windows make this helm a breeze come true!
Without an issue in 2012, the owner had all of the windows removed and re-bedded including the factory seam supporting the entire hard top!
Other helm deck features:
Opposite to starboard is the guest head with:
Washer and separate dryer are located in the companionway locker- the best layout offered.
To port is the galley, starboard is the dining salon.
Galley features Corian counter tops with teak varnished fiddler rails, with an impressive amount of stowage above and below counter.
