2003 Eastbay 43 FB

Greenwich, Connecticut


Nimbus is like no other Eastbay 43 FB built.  Her highly customized moldings and trim surround the custom designed helm and mate's seat, the opposing settees and the counter overlooking the galley.  The varnished, impeccable, interior gleams. You can see the extraordinary finish and layout in the photos attached. Other highlights include:

  •  Galley down, two staterooms and split head.
  • Preferred Yanmar 500hp engines in her spotless engine room
  • Major service performed by Gold Star Yanmar Dealer Precision Marine
  • New Furuno electronics (2018) at lower and upper stations
  • Bow and stern thrusters
  • Dark Blue Awlgripped hull
  • Soda blasted and repainted bottom in 2019
  • New (2018) beige Sunbrella bimini and cockpit awning

Nimbus must be seen to be appreciated.

Walking from the cockpit through the aft sliding door you'll enter the main salon with its varnished interior and teak and holly sole. To starboard, you'll find an L-settee with a hi-lo teak table, a built-in helm seat and the lower helm. To port, a straight settee with storage below and an aft-corner cabinet with a flat screen TV on an electric lift. Just aft of the chart table and opposite the lower helm is a double companion seat with storage and ice maker below.

Large windows surround the salon and provide ample natural light and ventilation; overhead hatches provide additional light and air. The center windshield is electric. Reverse cycle air conditioning and heat is available throughout with three 16,000 BTU units.

Down a few steps from the helm area and to port is the galley, which is open to the salon. To starboard is the guest cabin with twin lower and upper berths. Forward is the split head and shower and the master cabin with centerline berth.
