2016 Grand Banks 55 Eastbay FB


Category: SKU: 8570283



Just in time for the summer boating season.

TIVOLI is a rare, late model Eastbay 55 Flybridge. This 55 is that perfect size that’s large enough to offer 3 nice sized staterooms and 2 large heads, each with separate stall showers AND galley up. This is the perfect cruising couples boat that can accommodate friends and family in comfort and style.  

A curved staircase from the cockpit accesses her sizable flybridge.  NO LADDER!  The Eastbay 55 Flybridge is the big brother of the very popular Eastbay 47 FB with an added third stateroom and almost 2 1/2′ additional beam!

TIVOLI is built on a Ray Hunt planing hull that easily cruises in the mid to high 20’s with her powerful CAT C-18 Acert 1015hp engines.  Bow and stern thrusters make handling her at dockside a dream. Her 1800gpd watermaker makes anchoring out and Bahamas cruising easy and self-sufficient. Her painted Stars and Stripes hull sets her apart from the other Downeast boats and is stunning!

TIVOLI has a very comfortable flybridge that’s AIR-CONDITIONED with 3 STIDD chairs, large L-settee with teak dining table and cabinet with drink refrigerator. There’s a polycarbonate full enclosure around the hardtop allowing both summer and winter use. The hydraulic swim platform lowers the Novurania dinghy easily into the water and carries it when underway. Many custom features were added to TIVOLI during her build and include backup pumps, water filtration, full canvas covers, interior window shades plus drapes, window screens, salon settee that converts to a double berth, and much more!

Please call for more details and your appointment to view! TIVOLI is a head turning, stunning boat!!  She’s easy to see at the GB Sales and Service facility in Stuart Florida.
