The Southpaw is a Grand Banks Eastbay 40 Flybridge Sedan - truly one of their most versatile models. This is a lovely family cruiser that has been well maintained. Great for day trips and extended cruising and, a little fishing.  With average fuel consumption of 15 GPH, her highly efficient Volvo diesels are surprisingly inexpensive to operate.

Southpaw has the preferred galley up as this configuration offers great light and visibility, and provides for more space below for the guest stateroom. The lower station is to starboard and is great for piloting in all weather conditions.
