General Details

NIGHT HERON is especially well suited for the cruising couple. This yacht is lightly used, well cared for and offered for sale by her original owners.


The GB43 Eastbay SX was among the first of a trend to enclosed cruising express yachts. The modified deep vee hull is Designed by C. Raymond Hunt Associates and built to the industry's highest standards by Grand Banks Yachts in Singapore and Malaysia. The Teak Interior is exceptional and finished with many coats of optional high gloss varnish.  She’s a stoutly built twin diesel boat.  Cruising comfortably at 25 knots she is very quiet and delivers a soft dry ride. This boat has a cruising platform well suited to enjoy New England and the Southern waters as well.
"NIGHT HERON" is a single cabin arrangement below with a larger Master Cabin forward and centerline modified queen berth. She is especially well suited for the cruising couple. This arrangement allows for a large Head to Port with spacious separate stall Shower compartment across the passageway to Starboard. The functional Galley down is also larger and opens overhead to the salon deck above providing extra light and visibility. Across from the galley to Starboard is a U-shaped Dinette with Teak table which converts to a double berth. The Helm and Salon deck is versatile and comfortable with Stidd Helm seat, bench companion seat with chart table, large L-settee to Port with Teak Table and free standing arm chairs to Starboard. The dual opening centerline doors create a generous opening of the salon to the cockpit.
GB built this boat using hand laid fiberglass laminates over foam core. Vinylester resin beneath the waterline and factory epoxy barrier coat. The structure is among the most robust in the industry and is noticeable in the solid quiet ride. The highest quality components are used in the areas of deck and hull fittings, plumbing and electrical.
