2014 Grand Banks 46 Eastbay SX Features and Benefits:

Benefits of Zeus

With the Zeus system, engine noise and vibration are significantly reduced. Exhaust is nearly eliminated by venting emissions through the propeller hubs, where the water flow takes it far back into the wake. With the optional Skyhook electronic anchor, the 46SX automatically maintains a completely stationary position, even against wind and current. This GPS-based system directs each pod drive to move and thrust as needed to hold steady.

Gourmet Galley

The standard down galley is large and open to sunlight from above, featuring a comfortable and easy-to-use cooking area with plenty of storage. Alternately, owners may opt to move the galley up and aft, creating an extremely usable space integrated right into the action on the main deck.

Generous Master Cabin

The forward master features a queen island berth, generous storage at every turn, and a private en-suite head with enclosed shower.

Flexible Layouts

In the standard layout a two-berth stateroom lies to starboard, including private access to the guest head. At the owner’s option the starboard guest cabin can be configured as an office that converts easily into a private stateroom. Additionally, in the galley up layout, room below opens up for a third stateroom to port.

Crew Quarters or Utility Room?

In any of the down-galley lower deck arrangements the standard utility room can be replaced with an optional crew’s quarters. Accessed through easy-lift stairs, this extra cabin features a single berth and head, plus storage.

Helm Deck

The standard salon layout features a large U-settee around a teak-inlay table, opposite an ample straight settee. Just forward is a comfortable helm with Stidd seat, plus a double bench seat to port. With the optional sunroof you can open up the hardtop of your 46SX with the touch of a button, making the salon even more bright and airy.

Spacious Cockpit
