2009 Eastbay 45 SX

Riverside, Connecticut


This Eastbay 45 Salon Express shows like a new boat, from her Awlgripped and Clear Coated Flag Blue Hull to her spotless bilge.  Among the annual upgrades are all new Furuno electronics (2017) and the HD 4' open array radar (2018), ablated and barrier coated bottom in 2017, custom bedding in both MSR and guest/office stateroom.  In 2016 the owners added a Freedom Lift, an 11' AB inflatable and a 30HP Yamaha outboard (2017). There is much more.  The sellers are very experienced owners, and this was their 3rd Eastbay.  They are selling in order to move to a smaller boat.
