2014 Grand Banks 55 Eastbay FB
The Grand Banks 55 Eastbay FB is a compact, and practical yacht designed with comfort and ergonomics in mind. The Grand Banks 55 Eastbay FB is offered with a choice of two or three-stateroom layouts, each with a large flybridge deck.
Needles to say, the interior was carefully designed to match the latest standards in the segment, so once inside you’ll be welcomed by a Stidd helm seat, an elegant curved staircase, a large L-settee surrounding a handmade teak table.
You also get engine options up to 1,150 mhp, Delta-T demisters, a large lazarette with gas-assist hatch, Bose entertainment system and cedar-lined hanging lockers and abundant storage.

2014 Grand Banks 55 Eastbay FB Features and Benefits:
Expansive Flybridge With Hardtop
With wide-open spaces and commanding views, the flybridge features a large L-settee surrounding a handmade teak table, and a single Stidd ® on the centerline. Options include two additional Stidd® seats.
A Gourmet Galley
The long, large galley in the 55FB features granite countertops, a large sink, drawer-style refrigeration units, a built-in microwave-convection oven, and plenty of storage. A large freezer sits in a closet forward along the companionway, and extra storage for longer trips is easily accessed through the sole.
Luxurious Master Stateroom
With hand-crafted teak cabinetry throughout, the master cabin is a warm and inviting place to retire, with plenty of easily-accessible storage — including a cedar-lined hanging locker. An en-suite head with stand-up shower is equally well appointed.
Optional Hull Colors
Standard white and the popular Flag Blue hull colors have now been supplemented with a variety of new choices (pictured: "Flag Blue"). See your dealer for more information. (55SX Shown)
Large Salon Layout
Standard deckplan of very spacious 55FB features a U-settee to port surrounding a teak high-low table. A second, smaller settee sits just forward on a raised platform that provides outstanding visibility. A standard Stidd® helm seat sits to starboard; abaft of this is a long cabinet with storage, minibar, and an entertainment center with pop-up TV.
A main highlight of the 55FB is the enormous cockpit. Choose optional built-in seating along the transom, or take the standard arrangement without seating and furnish it yourself. Three large gas-assist hatches offer convenient access to an expansive lazarette.
Safety Comes Standard
Wide side decks, smartly-placed grab rails, standard Fireboy® fire systems, strong hand and safety rails - plus dozens of other specialized design features and equipment inside and out - make each Grand Banks a superior choice for safety.

Speed + Range + Efficiency
Today’s Grand Banks are designed to provide higher speeds when needed, while also delivering fuel economy - and comfortable cruising over long distances - when moving at a slower pace. Our use of electronically controlled diesel engines gives you greater performance and flexibility than ever before, while dramatically reducing smoke, odor and engine idle noise.
