Eastbay 38 EX-HX
Length w/ Pulpit:
Introduced in 1994, the Eastbay 38 Express launched Grand Banks in a completely new direction. She was the first in a rapidly evolving series of Eastbay yachts whose classic Downeast lines and Hunt-designed hulls were a departure from Grand Banks previous trawler heritage. The quality and care with which the Eastbay 38 EX was constructed is clearly evident from her varnished teak toerails to her finely finished interior. Stepping up from the large cockpit, the 38s expansive helm deck includes a bench seat and teak table to port and a custom Stidd chair at the helm. Forward, the main cabin features a full-service galley to port and convertible U-shaped seating opposite. The head/shower is located to port on the way to the master stateroom which was available with standard V-berths or a center island berth. Accessing the engine room is made easy with the assistance of power-assist deck hatch. All decks and walkways are inlaid in teak. A transom door and teak swim platform were standard. The 38 HX model has a hardtop and semi-enclosed helm deck. Powered by a variety of diesel options, top speeds of 30+ knots were achievable. Over 130 were built.
