The new Grand Banks Eastbay 55 Flybridge has all the classic lines, high quality, and handcrafted interiors that have made the company famous—plus a C. Raymond Hunt Associates-designed hull. Our initial sea trial showed a top speed of 35 knots and an easy cruising speed of 27 knots. The flying bridge is accessed by an elegant, curved staircase rising from the cockpit, and has a large L-shaped settee, custom teak table, and Stidd helm chairs. “This is one fun boat to drive!” reported one of our editors.
Arcadia Yachts uses design to create efficient cruisers that also deliver on comfort. While the ultramodern lines may not appeal to everyone, boaters who take the time to understand what the design brings may have their minds changed.
