FULL SPECIFICATIONS

INTRODUCTION

AVANTI is one of the absolute best of the ever-popular Eastbay HX 43’s to come to market for some time. To date, she has had just two owners, and both ownerships have updated her all along the way.

 

Her first owner had her on fresh water where she was kept under cover, and her present owners have used her seasonally in New England and stored her inside a heated building at one of the area’s most acclaimed boatyards during the winter months.

 

AVANTI has been maintained to a standard few others can match. The current owner has made extensive improvements over the last few years, with all work done by the Dodson Boatyard in Stonington, CT. Read the details below and the story will unfold.

VESSEL WALK-THROUGH

Helm Deck:


After entering the cockpit, it is two steps up into the helm deck. To port is an L-shaped lounge with under-seat storage and large fold-out teak table. To starboard is the wet bar with stainless steel sink, a drawer and beverage storage area and an AC /DC Norcold refrigerator/freezer (installed 2015) underneath. Above the wet bar, is a custom teak drop box containing a Toshiba LCD flat screen TV.

 

Forward of the lounge seating, port side, is cabinet space with a chart cabinet on top. To starboard is the helm station with instrument panel and Stidd Helm chair (re-upholstered 2020). Lighting is overhead halogens, the two most forward shine red for night vision. There are two opening side windows, two top hatches and a power-operated (2017) center opening window. Mounted overhead are 3 rod holders.

 

The soft rear enclosure has a zippered roll-up entry, zippered Eisenglass rear window. The engine room is accessed through a large hatch with removable ladder in the middle of the deck.
