2014 Grand Banks 50 Eastbay SX

Newport, Rhode Island

$1,700,000

SAPPHIRE is a stunning example of the Grand Banks 50 Eastbay SX. The 50 Eastbay replaced the iconic 49 Eastbay with a more rounded, forward-looking design in 2014, and she is undoubtedly the most sleek and beautiful express on the water.

On the interior, she features an ideal layout with galley down, spacious primary stateroom amidships to starboard and VIP stateroom forward. She's powered by Volvo 950 IPS pod drives that have been meticulously maintained by a knowledgable owner, and she'll cruise in the high 20s and top out in low 30s.

She's fast, handles herself amazingly well in big seas, and is very easy to maneuver dockside. Sapphire is fully equipped and loaded with optional upgrades – If you're looking to cruise in comfort and style, look no further!
