Alexander Marine Australia/Grand Banks Yachts Australia are delighted to present this 2006 Grand Banks 49 Eastbay SX 'Moxie' to the market as central agents.
'Moxie' is a breathtakingly beautiful and immaculately presented downeast style sedan motor yacht - built to a standard only Grand Banks has mastered and cared for by a fastidious owner that continually improves his boats. Her current owner of 4 years has lavished the boat with extensive upgrades and care - if you are impressed by her photos you will be delighted with what you see when you step onboard.
Access to her teak laid cockpit is via her wide teak hydraulic hi/lo swim platform.

The entirety of the cockpit is protected from the elements by way of her custom structural hardtop, which also supports a custom lightweight 3.7m Cross X Country tender with Suzuki 20hp outboard motor which is launched and retrieved courtesy of an ADC 250kg hydraulic crane. Note the hi/lo platform can accommodate a 2nd tender or Jet Ski should her next owner wish to carry more water toys.
Guests will find it easy to move from the cockpit up onto her wide walk-around side decks which are perfect for young and old crew members. As per the cockpit her side decks are teak laid and recently semco coated. Her toe rails are two pack polyurethane painted for a classic yet maintenance free look.
