We tracked down the inside scoop on what boatbuilders are up to next.
Mark Richards, CEO of Grand Banks, reached out to tell me a little something about the 44 Eastbay SX, one of his exciting new designs for the company. Richards promises the 44 will be “hard to beat” thanks to functional layout options including a choice of two or three staterooms, and a layup that utilizes lots of vinylester and E-glass composites for an exemplary weight-to-strength ratio. The boat will be rounded out with Volvo Penta IPS600s for high maneuverability as well. She’ll be priced right around a million bucks when she splashes late next summer—a figure that makes this beauty very tempting indeed.
