The Eastbay 39 SX Is One Of The Second-generation Eastbay Boats Designed By Raymond Hunt And Associates For Grand Banks And Maintains Similarities To The First-generation 38 And 43.
In 2005, Rob Livingston, The GB CEO Did A Smart Thing By Sending His Then VP Of Sales, Neil McCurdy, To Visit The Hunt Design Group And Pursue What Had Been Learned By GB And Their Dealers From The Design, Construction, And Distribution Of Nearly 300 Of These Earlier First Generation Entry-level Models. The Results Are Revealed In Terms Of Consumer Preferences And On Display In The EB 39 SX. Clearly, Much Was Learned From These Boat Owners And The Customer-based Purchase Orders For The Production And Sale Of A Hundred And Forty Eastbay 49s And 54s. Many Of These Results And The Ensuing Discussions Amongst The Network And With Hunt Are Also Incorporated And On Display In The Eastbay 39. Consequently, This Nicely Thought Out “Tealaweigh” Shows Well In The Helm Deck And Lower Arrangement Layout In Terms Beyond The Traditional Bed, Galley, And Shower As It Is A Better Boat For Seating, climate Control, Sun Protection, cabin Security, And Lighting As Well As Window Design For Lower Maintenance Going Forward. This Process Was Extended To The Control Systems, The Electrical Panel, And The Main Circuitry Layout As Access Is Improved And The Panel Is More Conveniently Located. The Enhanced Electrical Circuit Designs Benefited From Enhanced Industry Trends And Make Future Service More Simplified And Less Costly. Tealaweigh Has Several Special Features That Set Her Apart From Other EB 39s On The Market Today: Electronic Engine Controls By Twin Disc, CAT Maintenance Including 1000-hour Service By Shore Power, Inc., An Entertainment Center, Electric Heaters, New Air Conditioning Units (2016), Cockpit Sunshade, Hydraulic Dinghy Davit System, Dual 30 Amp Shore Power System, Two Sets Of Window Covers, New Victron System (2021), Additional Lifeline House Battery, Additional Galley Cabinets And Hardware, Flag Blue Awlgrip On The Hull (2021), Swim Ladder Under The Swim Platform, And Recent Prop Scans (2021). Spring 2023 Upgrades: Fresh Awlcare On Hull And Superstructure, 2 Coats Of Exterior Varnish, Micron CSC Bottom Paint, Engine Service, And Fresh Prop Speed.
Tealaweigh Is Currently In Heated Storage And Can Be Launched With One Day's Notice.

Reflections on Eastbay 39/007
Second Generation Eastbay Concepts
The 2006 Eastbay 39 #007 taught us about the many design improvements developed by Hunt Designs and Grand Banks for this latest generation Eastbay.
The cockpit has been improved with great visibility aft from the helm station with no obstructions. This is the first Eastbay model to address cockpit seating with a forward-facing picnic seat. Other additions to the cockpit include an ice maker and bar in a molded-in cabinet. The interior and cockpit décor blend to provide the same family area décor and function. The large lazarette locker with a hydraulic lifting hatch is well-designed for storage and access to the steering gear.
The superstructure has been modernized with a curved solid aft enclosure with a solid door between the cockpit and helm deck. The windows in the door and enclosure ensure good visibility aft from the helm station. This heavy duty fiberglass door allows for improved temperature and sound control on the helm deck. The hardtop includes more generous overhangs for improved sun protection for the Helm Deck.
The Helm Deck has two Stidd chairs, with a chart table at the navigator's seat. The addition of an entertainment center with a lifting TV increases the appeal of the upper salon. The center section of the windshield opens electrically. The windows are “frameless” for reduced maintenance, and the tinted safety glass on all windows improves temperature control and reduces the UV rays affect on the interior finishes and upholstery of the Helm Deck. The side windows slide open easily, and the center window opens electrically which makes for great ventilation on the Helm Deck.
Down below the Salon has been opened up to a large split level area by the redesigning of the galley.
The “U” shaped galley to port has been replaced by a straight galley to starboard. The new galley design is simplified for short range cruising with a microwave/convection oven and a cook top. The refrigeration is state of the art. The larger salon has a seven foot long “L” settee and pedestal table to port which makes into a generous double berth. This new design creates more living space below and more privacy from people on the dock and adjacent boats. The head and shower are larger with improved access, and a contemporary design. The lighting throughout has been drastically improved with recessed LED fixtures.
The Owner's Stateroom has an island bed layout where the bed itself is larger than any of the first generation Eastbays whether a 38, 40, 43, 49, or 54! This new layout does not sacrifice any storage or the traditional Eastbay styling of the Owner's Stateroom.
As to performance, the draft has been reduced to 3' 4” from 3' 11” with no loss of the solid ride and seakeeping ability the Eastbay boats are known for. This boat runs up to 8.5 knots without the stern digging in, and begins planing at 9.3-9.5 knots. She rises gently with nose down provided by a gentle touch to the trim tab controls. Lower decibels at cruising speeds are due to the insulation characteristics of the fiberglass Helm Deck door. Five bladed propellers are now standard equipment.
Construction techniques have been improved with the use of newer composite technologies. The hull is laminated with Hydrex resin and closed-cell foam coring above the waterline. The bottom is still solid fiberglass. The electrical system has been improved with a better layout and access.
Originally commissioned for the higher latitudes of Canada, Tealaweigh was outfitted with additional electric cabin heaters that run off the inverter and no air conditioning. She was then recommissioned on the East Coast of the US by a new owner in 2016 who wanted the best features for cruising warmer latitudes.
