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.
The Trident 620 from Outer Reef takes much of what this proven builder has learned from its classic line and puts that wisdom to work in a sprightly semidisplacement hull with pod propulsion and a striking profile.
