Grand Banks Eastbay 39 Sx

Grand Banks Eastbay 39 sx

We picked up our new boat in Seattle and cruised home to Olympia. There were gale warnings in the Marine Forecast, so we used the extra speed to our advantage to get home just as the big winds arrived. It was a pleasant cruise at about 16 knots that would have taken us an entire day in the old 7 knot trawler.

Our new boat, named Yes Please, is a 2007 Grand Banks Eastbay 39 sx.

She sports a pair of Cummins QSC8.3 liter engines that put out 490 HP each. The interior is laid out perfectly for a cruising couple, with no wasted space and not a lot of extra storage, which I am hoping keeps down the clutter. The new boat is a perfect weekend boat, which will also work well for multi-week trips up to the islands.
