This 2005 model Grand Banks 47 Eastbay FB is beautiful inside and out with her high gloss incredibly crafted interior. Grand Banks has a well-deserved reputation for building high quality yachts for more than 60 years!
She has been professionally maintained since new by her first owners who spent approximately 580 hours on her up and down the east coast of the USA for 4 years. The next owner made some upgrades in 2010:
- New Awlgrip paint job in Flag Blue
- New TNT Swim Platform Lift with dinghy chocks
- New complete Furuno instrument system (NavNet 3D) including B&G depth and log at both stations
- Stern thruster to compliment the original bow thruster.
Her current owners purchased her in 2011 and have made the following upgrades:
- Complete rewiring of DC system with additional and new batteries, new inverter/charger and battery monitoring system
- All four (4) cutlass bearings replaced, both prop shafts straightened, five-bladed props returned and both Tides Marine Dripless Shaft Assemblies replaced with new "Sure Seal" model in Spring 2016. At the same time, the bores for each bearing were cleaned and coated with Velox to help prevent marine growth, which is what shortens the life of cutlass bearings. With proper maintenance, these bearings should last 15 years or more.
- Toe rail and wood strips professionally stripped and varnished with multiple coats of Epifanes varnish
- New Naugahyde covering for settee and bench seat in salon, 2014
- New port curtains for staterooms and heads, 2016
- New Isinglass windows for the front half of the flybridge enclosure
- 1,000 hour service performed on both main engines in fall of 2016 which included removal and cleaning of aftercoolers and heat exchangers, and all necessary hoses replaced
COMPLETED OCT. 2017
- Maintenance coats on teak toe rail and eyebrows; full restoration of teak name boards
- Complete sanding and multi-coat varnishing of the entire cabin sole, plus new varnish around helm area
- Complete sanding and cleaning of all exterior teak decking
- Complete professional polish and wax of hull and superstructure
- Replacement of all Isinglass on flybridge deck canvas (some fall of 2016 and rest in Oct 2017)
- All small imperfections in fiberglass repaired
- Both cockpit locker floors fully sanded and painted
- Name removal on transom and name boards along with polish and wax; made ready for next owner
- Engine room clean and touchup
- Salon curtains dry cleaned and new runner for Salon
- Two new B&G displays replacing old ones on flybridge

TNT LIFT: Both remote and hard-wired controlled in the cockpit, this lift allows easy launch and retrieval of the dinghy. Additionally it is a great swim platform with the ability to adjust its height to any level.
DINGHY: 2008 model Avon 10' with a 2008 Yamaha 15hp 4-stroke engine complete with foot pump, canvas cover for the seat, gas tank, water separator and custom Sunbrella full cover fabricated in 2013. The engine has been professionally maintained each season; approximately 310 hours.
Teak decks cover the large cockpit as well as the steps up to the wide sidedecks and to the salon. Below are three (3) large lazarettes for storage of fenders, tools, etc. There are two (2) outdoor cockpit speakers, under deck lights and two choices of water at the transom: one is a long coiled hose ("HoseCoil") for cold water that reaches anywhere in the cockpit; the second is a hot and cold shower nozzle. The custom lockable flagpole was re-varnished in 2016 and holds a large US flag. There is a hand-operated remote control for docking in tight quarters that plugs into a receptacle in the cockpit with a 40-foot cord which controls both engines and thrusters. To port is an automated 50-foot AC Glendinning Cablemaster. Just forward is one of three fridges that also has a freezer. To starboard is a Miele electric grill and a well for two 20-lb. propane tanks that serve the stove and oven. Both have teak covers and custom Sunbrella canvas covers. Below is a cabinet for cleaning supplies storage.
This GB47FB is the preferred galley down version which boasts a wraparound settee to port that coverts to an additional berth. There is a beautiful, high glossed movable inlaid dining table that seats six comfortably. To starboard is one folding director's chair. The STIDD helmchair can be rotated to join the conversation. There is a grab rail down the center for safety. Housed in an elegant high glossed box is the TV which is electrically controlled by a wall switch. In front of the TV box is a smaller separate storage table. Below the port settee is the Bose control center (DVD) for the TV. Affixed on the wall to port are a Weems and Plath clock and barometer. Forward to starboard is the STIDD helmchair and a bench chair to port. Forward of the bench seat is a chart table plus a bar cabinet. The center front window opens electrically by a switch on the helm station.
The settee and bench seat were recovered in 2014 with a Cream colored Naugahyde. In 2015, a new Clarion sound system was installed that feeds cockpit, salon and flybridge speakers including a sub-woofer hidden under the bench seat. (Speakers at flybridge new in 2014). There is a control for the system at the flybridge helm.
Both steering stations provide all the necessary instrumentation featuring Furuno 3D NavNet, B&G sounder displays, Simrad AP26 Autohelm, ICOM-MC-602 VHF with a distress application, Bennet Trim Tab controls and Side-Power bow and stern thruster controls. One unit controls the transmission and throttle. The Twin Disk transmission control has four different settings for complete control. The bow and stern thrusters mimic a joystick in terms of control of this yacht; docking is worry free. A Ritchie Compass sits atop a custom wooden mount. There are windshield wipers for all three front windows complete with freshwater washing and automated rain sensor. A "Surefire" remote fire extinguisher control sits to starboard of the steering wheel, along with the on/off for the Maxwell Windlass. The AC/DC panel sits just to port of the helm station. To starboard of the helm station is a helm door to the sidedeck for ease of docking and natural ventilation.
The galley is to port and features a 3-burner propane Force 10 stove with oven, two sinks, a freezer, deep storage locker and plenty of cabinet space for plates, glasses, cutlery and utensils. A trash bin is under the sink. The refrigerator is a SubZero AC/DC (5.1 cubic feet) with freezer. Under the companionway stairs is a large storage area for pots, pans, food pantry, etc. complete with a pneumatic assisted stair lift (new in 2012) for easy access.
The Master Stateroom has a walkaround queen berth with custom mattress cover and custom quilted coverlet. The bed lifts up for additional storage. There are two large storage drawers at the foot of the bed. A cedar-lined hanging closet is to port as well as a set of four (4) drawers forward. To starboard is more cabinet and drawer space. This stateroom has one opening port and two large hatches. The second hatch over the berth is custom. All hatches on the boat have both screens and black-out shades. The Master Head has a walk-in shower with a stunning wood treatment, exhaust fan, Sealand vacuum head and plenty of cabinet storage space.
The Guest Stateroom is to starboard with two single berths with custom quilted coverlets, cedar-lined hanging closet and drawer space below each berth. Two opening ports provide ventilation.
Guest / Day Head
Directly across from the Guest Stateroom is the Guest / Day Head. This head has a freshwater Sealand vacuum flush head, sink, custom shower stall (floor was sunk in 2010 to accommodate a taller person), exhaust fan and more than ample storage space. It has one opening port and a hatch over the shower that provides natural ventilation and light.
Easy access to the Flybridge is via a beautiful curved teak winding staircase from the aft deck. There is a wraparound settee with two teak tables: one small and one larger that can be stored in its soft cover out of the way if desired. The navigation station has all instrumentation repeated from the lower helm and two STIDD chairs that are completely adjustable, including the ability to turn around to join guests for cocktails and/or dinner. To the right of the helm station is an additional (third) fridge for easy access while on the flybridge. The flybridge is fully enclosed with a Sunbrella top cover and adjustable polycarbonate side curtains. There is additional storage under the helm station.
INTERNET: A Wirie Pro was installed before the 2015 season. It both enhances Wi-Fi while at a dock or marina and, most impressively. greatly boosts the signal from cell towers on shore. The current owners have received a signal while 12 miles offshore.
LIGHTING: There is generous lighting in every part of the boat including reading lamps on both sides of the master berth and for the twin berths in the guest stateroom. The salon has ambient recessed lighting, night red lighting for the Navigation area and the companionway steps have recessed safety lighting.
GENERATOR: Onan 8kW Generator. Engine oil has been changed every year along with a thorough check. This Onan is remote controlled at the AC/DC panel including fault lights. It's capable of about 40-amps before a breaker is tripped. It's necessary only for charging, air conditioner/heat and the grill. The espresso machine, toaster, mixer, etc. operate on the Mastervolt Inverter without an issue. A type 32 battery with a plastic case situated next to the generator powers start-up. Generator has only 775 hours.
BATTERIES AND DC SYSTEM: Nothing was spared to ensure ample battery power. Three 8D Lifeline batteries were purchased in 2012 all dedicated to the house. In addition, two 8D Lifeline batteries were added in 2012. Four of these batteries are housed in a custom battery box. With engines running, one of the two Balmar regulators (2013) charge house batteries, while the other charges both starting batteries, plus the 8D in the transom used to power the TNT Lift and the stern thruster. (The two start batteries power the bow thruster). Isolators control all charging, ensuring none of the batteries are overcharged. Complete switching allows any group of batteries to be charged by any of the chargers.
AC SYSTEM: All AC are GFCI protected against ground faults and are routed through the AC panel. On the AC panel next to the helm station is a main switch toggling between inverter and shorepower. When 120V or 240V AC power is available through the generator or shorepower, the inverter acts as a power transfer medium and as a charger.
CHARGING: Fast, efficient charging is critical to avoid long hours with the generator. This 47FB has three charges. The original 2005 ProNautic 1250 charges all two start batteries and the 8D in the transom, although her current owners have never had to use it. A 100-amp Mastervolt Charger/Inverter was added in 2012. In 2013, a Mastervolt 50-amp charger was added. These charge the house batteries, making short work of charging, whether through the generator or AC 110 from the dock.
Engine & Mechanical Equipment
MAIN ENGINES: There are dual acclaimed CAT C-12 705hp turbo engines. These engines are easily capable of 5,000 hours and likely more. The CAT C-12's were thoroughly checked when the current owners purchased the boat, including adjustments to the lifters. All hoses that required it have been replaced. Oil and all engine zincs have been changed once per year; coolant once every two years; and belts were changed in 2013. These engines have been trouble free. The very large engine room (with plenty of room for two road bikes and golf clubs) is hydraulically accessed through the steps going up to the salon from the cockpit. In 2012, additional support for the port exhaust (the longer of the two runs) was added to ensure no movement. Both helm stations have CAT digital control panels for each engine providing all necessary engine data. A power-assisted hydraulic steering system allows for feather touch control. Each CAT C-12 drives a five-bladed propeller. The shaft is coupled to the engine through (new) Tide Marine.
FUEL SYSTEM: There are two separate fuel tanks. The forward tank, which is under the floor between the two water tanks, is 200 gallons. The aft tank is 500. At 22 knots, the range would be about 300nm. At an average speed of 9 knots, the range would be about 700nm, with the same 50-gallon reserve. A fuel transfer pump in the engine room flows fuel from the forward tank to the aft.
AIR CONDITIONING / HEAT: Three MarineAir separate reversible air conditioning units heat and cool the boat. A 16,000 BTU/hr unit splits into 12,000 for the Master and 6,000 for the Guest Stateroom. Two units (16,000 and 12,000 BTU's) supply the Salon. There is a float switched condensation tank in the engine room switched from the DC panel.
PLUMBING: Each freshwater head (using only 1/2 liter of water per flush) is plumbed to a 67 gallon black water tank, fitted with a macerator pump. There is an automated overboard discharge pump with tank monitor operated from the helm station, as well as a pump out outlet on the port deck forward. The galley sink and guest head shower and sink are plumbed to a grey water tank. The master shower and sink are plumbed to another. Float switches operate both grey water tanks. The boat has two stainless freshwater baffled tanks, each with a shut-off valve. Total available water is 206 gallons, which is very generous for a boat this size. To starboard of the starboard engine is a 20-gallon immersion heater hot water tank. A pressurized pump in the engine room supplies hot and cold water to all sinks, showers and heads.
ANCHORING SYSTEM: There are two (2) anchors. One is a custom stainless Suncor 45-lb. Plowshare controlled by a Maxwell rope/chain windlass with dual directional controls at both helm stations and at the bow. This anchor has 150-ft of chain. The second anchor is a Fortress FX-37 with 200-ft of rope and 200f-ft of chain, added in 2013. That chain and rope is stored in the starboard locker. (All dock lines are stored in the port locker). The windlass operates both anchors. In addition, there is a snubbing system to relieve pressure on the windlass and a freshwater washdown in the port locker.
This GB47FB is complete with all U.S. Coast Guard required flares and safety equipment. In addition, there is a ditch bag complete with EPIRB and VHF. The boat has had a thorough inspection by the USCG. On the outside starboard salon wall is a registered ARC EPIRB. In addition, there is a six-man liferaft that stores in the lazarette. There are two (2) CO2 detectors, one in each stateroom.
