"The Grand Banks 38 Eastbay EX rides a solid fiberglass deep-vee hull designed by C. Raymond Hunt Associates... Prop pockets reduce draft to slightly more than 3 feet. The wide side decks and full-length side rails allow easy movement around the boat. The raised bridge deck (with engines below) has a well-appointed helm station to starboard, laid out with a large instrument console and room for a navigation station." ~ Steve Knauth for Soundings
As soon as you step aboard Antares, it is clear that the owners are knowledgeable yachts people. The yacht is well cared for and spends its summers in Winter Harbor Maine and winters in indoor storage. This yacht presents as a much younger yacht and will survey very well. With Grand Banks pedigree, Ray Hunt's understanding of design and the care and maintenance of proud owners you will not be disappointed with this yacht.

Stepping up from the large cockpit, the 38’s expansive helm deck includes.. "L shape"...seating... to port and a custom... chair at the helm. Forward, the main cabin features a full-service galley to port and convertible U-shaped seating opposite. The head/shower is located to port on the way to the master stateroom which is ... a center island berth. A transom door and teak swim platform were standard. The 38 HX has a hardtop and semi-enclosed helm deck.) Top speeds of 30+ knots were achievable. Over 130 were built." ~ Powerboat Guide
