Late Harvest, a 1999 38’ Eastbay Express, has been used by her owner as a picnic boat and for sunset cruises on the tributaries of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. As such, her galley, salon, and owner’s cabin are virtually unused and pristine. Her low engine hours make Late Harvest a terrific buy for someone who wants to enjoy the legendary performance of a boat in this class for a terrific price. Late Harvest’s famed Ray Hunt designed deep V hull, her twin CAT diesel engines, and famed Grand Banks attention to comfort and beauty provide the perfect combination of high performance and stylish comfort. Late Harvest is exquisitely designed for day cruising, overnight anchorage and extended travel.
Aboard the Late Harvest
Late Harvest boasts a generous teak swim platform at her stern. An opening transom door brings you to the large teak stern deck, with seating area, deck hatch covers for two large below deck storage areas, and retracting power cable.
Two steps up on either side lead to the generous walkways and front deck. Her varnished teak toe rail highlights the traditional design on deck. She has sturdy stainless steel grab rails and non-skid decks for your safety. Bow equipment
includes a power anchor windlass and bow thrusters.
The cockpit sits up two steps. She features a helmsman’s chair, matching chair to port, and built in seating along the port side. A custom made teak table is stowed in the cockpit for optional use. Late Harvest’s nav system and chart plotter was replaced in 2012, and features a large screen integrated display. Excellent visibility is provided in comfort through the large windshield and windows. The bimini is linen colored Sunbrella with clear isinglass removable sidecurtains.
Accessing the engine and generator is easy from the cockpit deck, aided by an electro-hydraulic hatch.
Proceed down the teak companionway steps to a pristine satin varnished teak interior and teak and holly sole. To port is a fully equipped galley, with three-burner gas stove and oven, refrigerator/freezer and under-mounted stainless sink. Generous counter space, teak pull out drawers and locker storage are provided. Across from the galley is a dining/salon area featuring a U shaped dining settee with teak table and ample seating. The area converts to a sleeping berth to accommodate overnight guests.
A full head, with vacuflush marine toilet, sink and shower is to port. The owner’s cabin is up front, boasting a double sized island bed, hatches and ports for abundant light and air, and plenty of drawer and locker storage. A hanging locker is also provided. Maximum comfort and convenience are facilitated by an inboard generator, air conditioning, and excellent lighting throughout.
Late Harvest has been boat yard maintained, and wintered either in the shed or shrink wrapped on a lift. She is located in Denton, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, one hour from Annapolis.
