“STARS & STRIPES” is a spectacular original owner GB39 Eastbay SX. She has been used exclusively in Southern New England, never South and heated shed stored off season. Maintained by New England’s leading yards and engines service by H.O. Penn regional certified CAT service dealer. 
Builders Comments:The 39SX marked  the evolution of an icon, successor to the pace-setting Eastbay 38 that Grand Banks launched more than two decades ago. With her graceful, sweeping lines, the restyled and reconfigured 39SX brought new “curve appeal” to the Eastbay Series.

She also packs a set of new performance features beneath that refined exterior, matching classic beauty with pure exhilaration at every turn. Atop a proven deep­ V hull designed by C.R. Hunt Associates, the 39SX can easily top 30 knots while keeping dry and steady through any sea. Enjoy incredible visibility from the helm and throughout the salon, which opens to a spacious cockpit with teak deck, pop­ up fender cleats and built-in seating with ample storage.
“STARS & STRIPES” is an exceptional example of this great cruising yacht, no expense has been spared in her care and maintenance. Please plan your inspection today!

The 39SX has the accommodations ideal for a cruising couple. The forward master cabin offers an island berth, lavish teak and custom fabrics. With an angled galley to maximize stowage and ease-of-use, and a dinette that easily converts to a double berth, the design below deck is open, elegant, and ultimately practical. The head compartment is large enough for a separate cylindrical Plexiglass shower stall. The cockpit offers plenty of space, comfortable transom seating, storage and transom door to swim platform. The side decks are broad and safe for movement around the boat even while underway, 

The engine room is accessed through the pilothouse sole and is well organized and spacious in typical Grand Banks fashion.  

A highly maintained 2006 Grand Banks 39 Eastbay SX, she has been kept to the highest standard. Every mechanical system has been inspected or replaced by Pilot’s Point Marina or Bruce & Johnson’s Marina. All service work done on the Caterpillar Engines was done by H.O. Penn (Authorized CAT dealer). Exterior brightwork has been recently completed. She has always been stored in a heated indoor storage building in the off season.
