$50,000 PRICE REDUCTION MAY 22, 2018! NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT- BEST VALUE IN THE MARKET TODAY
I have personally been involved with this boat over the last three owners all of whom took exceptional care of it and made various improvements along the way. The current owner bought it at the Newport Boat show at which time there were 5 Eastbay 49's to choose from. After a careful study of all 49's, he chose this one because it stood out from the rest. He has kept it stored inside at the Hinckley Yard in Newport and used it very sparingly since 2012. Call me and I'll tell you all the details about history, records, etc.

This is one of the most highly customized Eastbay 49's ever offered. The past two owners have been large yacht owners and literally spared no expense to make this 49' a true gem! Very thoughtful improvements, maintenance and upgrades make RUNAWAY a tremendous value for anyone in search of the legendary Eastbay 49'!
RUNAWAY has varnished teak and holly floors throughout the accommodations below.
RUNAWAY has two staterooms and two complete heads with showers.
All the way forward is the master stateroom with an island queen berth with drawers beneath. A new custom fitted mattress was installed in 2010. Hydraulic struts facilitate easy access to storage beneath the mattress. There is a cedar-lined hanging locker with small locking safe, and numerous built-in bureau drawers and cabinets.
The master stateroom has two stainless steel reading lamps, a stainless steel opening porthole, a large overhead deck hatch with retracting blackout shade and screen, four teak bookshelves, a chart drawer for full-size Admiralty charts, 110V outlets outboard to port and starboard, a large full-height mirror, and a 15” Sharp LCD TV.
The master stateroom’s ensuite head is aft to port, and includes a large stall shower with ventilation fan, Sea-Land “Vaccu-Flush” freshwater electric toilet with dedicated holding tank, Corian countertops and basin, and a stainless steel opening port.
The guest cabin is aft of the master cabin to port, and has upper-and-lower single bunks, built-in teak bureaus, a cedar-lined half-height locker, an overhead hatch with retracting blackout shade and screen, two stainless steel opening ports, and a 15” Sharp LCD TV.
Opposite the guest cabin to starboard is the second head with shower, Corian counters and sink, Sea-Land “Vaccu-Flush” freshwater electric toilet with dedicated holding tank, stainless steel opening port, and ventilation fan. This head is accessed from the main accommodations corridor, and so serves as a “day head” for guests.
A built-in laundry with stacked, separate, full-size 110V Asko clothes washer and dryer is between the two staterooms, accessed from the main accommodations corridor, and concealed behind teak doors.
Aft of the staterooms are the galley to port and the dining salon to starboard. The galley features Corian counter tops with varnished teak fiddles. There is extensive storage in cabinets above and below, including a glass-front cabinet for glassware and liquor bottles, and a convenient flip-out trash bin.
Galley appliances and conveniences include:
• Stainless steel, front-loading, two-drawer, high-efficiency, 5.1 cu. ft. 110V AC refrigerator, new 2010
• Stainless steel front-loading, two-drawer, high-efficiency 5.1 cu. ft. 110V freezer with ice maker, new 2010
• Top-loading 12V DC chiller compartment that can be used either as a supplementary fridge or freezer (thermostat controlled), or simply as a large uncooled storage locker, new 2010

A tan ultra-leather U-shaped dining settee to starboard (with storage beneath) wraps around a hi-lo teak pedestal table with drop leaves and inset storage compartments. Built-in storage and cabinetry for the yacht’s entertainment center, Alpine AM-FM/CD/DVD/MP3 player, and air-handling equipment for the HVAC system are outboard of the settee, and additional dry-goods storage is beneath it.
A Sharp 20” LCD flat screen TV is mounted on the forward dining salon bulkhead, and can either play DVDs or receive “Direct TV” from the Sat-Antenna dome on the roof. This area has an overhead deck hatch with retracting blackout shade and screen, and two stainless steel opening ports.
Moving aft, up four steps from the galley area is the helm deck. To starboard is the helm station with controls, monitors, and varied components built into a teak console and three overhead electronics lockers. To port are a navigation table with chart storage, cabinetry beneath, and separate glassware and bottle storage. Aft is an open salon area.
The entire helm deck area floor is covered by custom, thick Soundown laminated lead/foam noise-reduction padding and understated tan broadloom carpet. The overhead is white vinyl headliner with traditional high-gloss varnished teak accent strips, recessed lighting on dimmers, and high-gloss varnished teak safety handrails.
To both port and starboard are large, forward-facing fixed bench seats, beautifully crafted in teak with tan ultra-leather upholstery, and large, deep storage lockers beneath. The original Grand Banks bench seating has been improved by moving the seat-backs aft, deepening the seats, and thus making them far more comfortable for extended passages.
The entire helm deck area is enclosed by the fiberglass hardtop and a three-sided glass and teak structure that offers 360-degree visibility. Three large flat-panel windows span the front of the yacht, and are equipped with heavy-duty windshield wipers and washers. The center forward window opens with a power ram operated from the helm. Extending aft on both sides to port and starboard are large two-section teak-framed glass side windows that slide wide open for great ventilation.
The three front and four side glass windows are tinted on the inside with custom aviation-grade “V-Kool” silver-particle film that reduces UV penetration, dramatically lowering heat and glare in the helm area, with none of the night-time visual reflection and distortion typically associated with ordinary car-window-tint-film.
Aft from the navigation area is the helm deck salon, fully enclosed with “EZ2CY” plastic panels outboard to port and starboard and across the stern. An L-shaped settee upholstered in tan ultra-leather is built-in aft to port, facing a varnished, teak-topped hi/lo table. A smaller, similarly finished settee is opposite to starboard. To starboard at the aft end of the helm deck area near the gate to the cockpit are 110V outlets and a small storage locker.
Two separate 12,000 BTU AC units in the helm deck area ensure rapid cool-down and comfort on even the hottest days.
The EZ2CY system’s two aft panels can be easily removed, opening the entire aft end of the helm deck. Additional white vinyl curtains can be easily attached to the EZ2CY panels to provide total privacy and/or to keep the yacht cool while it’s unoccupied.
Grand Banks builds the East Bay 49s by attaching the separate fiberglass helm deck structure to the hull with mechanical fasteners, and then sealing the seam between the hull and deck joint. In 2012, as part of the owner’s ongoing preventative maintenance program, this entire seam and all the glass windows were re-caulked to ensure total sea-tightness and perfect cosmetics. The side- and foredeck non-skid was also renewed.

Aft and down two steps from the helm deck is the spacious cockpit area, floored in teak. Access from the helm deck to the cockpit is through a fiberglass half-door with a sliding EZ2CY panel above, a custom upgrade from the standard factory full-height soft plastic panel in the “HX” soft-back version of the EB 49.
A custom white vinyl awning supported by sturdy 316-grade stainless steel tubular uprights provides sun and rain protection over the entire cockpit area. This awning is so robust and stable that it can be left permanently installed, including during long passages at high speed.
Outboard in the cockpit deck are built-in teak steps for port and starboard boarding and for access to the side decks going forward. To port and facing aft is a built-in settee with tan Sunbrella cushions and storage beneath. On centerline at the forward end of the cockpit is the large engine room access door, which lifts easily on hydraulic struts. To port, a conventional fishing-rod holder in the gunwale makes it convenient to mount a propane-fired BBQ grill.
Three large deck hatches in the cockpit floor, on hydraulic struts and equipped with drained gutters, provide easy, direct access to the lazarette storage area, auto-pilot rams, and steering gear.
The large lazarette is fitted with a custom heavy-duty aluminum bracket for storing an outboard dinghy motor up to 8-hp. The yacht’s 6-man Winslow life-raft in a soft valise is stored here, as is a Fortress 37 collapsible stern or emergency anchor with 20’ of chain and 190’ of rope rode.
A large transom door to starboard leads to the swim platform and provides walk-through access for stern boarding. Underneath the swim platform is a “Freedom Lift,” new in 2009, for carrying and deploying dinghies or other small watercraft.
The Freedom Lift mechanism is under the swim platform, but completely independent of it, as it is mounted directly to the transom. The Freedom Lift system consists of two large, adjustable, articulating, padded steel arms projecting from the transom below the waterline. These arms can carry a dinghy with outboard (or other small boat to a maximum weight of 800 pounds) while under way, and lift and lower it to the water aft of the swim platform for easy boarding.
The Freedom Lift system is powered by a hydraulic motor safely situated in the engine room, and controlled by a radio-controlled push-button remote smaller than a garage-door opener. When the Freedom Lift is not in regular use, its external arms may be quickly and easily disconnected and stored ashore, so that no machinery protrudes aft of the swim platform. For more information and an illustrative video, google “Freedom Lift.”

RUNAWAY is a traditional, beautifully crafted yacht with a great pedigree. She is fast, maneuverable, comfortable, and remarkably spacious for her overall size. The Grand Banks East Bay 49s’ “constant-deadrise” hull design from C. Raymond Hunt has been widely acclaimed for efficient, non-pounding, dry-running performance. RUNAWAY’s interior layout is extremely efficient, and the fit and finish of the EBs are without comparison in this size and price range.
Thanks to her latest-technology Caterpillar C-12 main diesel engines, RUNAWAY can operate in either “trawler mode” or at high speeds, offering spectacular fuel efficiency for a high-speed express yacht. Unlike earlier generations of marine diesel engines, which need to run at high RPMs to function cleanly and avoid fouling, RUNAWAY’s C-12 engines can motor comfortably at near-idle speeds all day. For example, at 1,000 RPM, in 2’ – 4’ seas, RUNAWAY generally makes about 10 knots, but only burns about 3 gallons of diesel per hour per engine, thus traveling almost 2 nautical miles per gallon of fuel consumed. Of course, at higher RPMs, the yacht can cruise at 22 knots and achieve close to 30 knots, depending on sea conditions.
RUNAWAY has been extensively modernized and updated by a knowledgeable owner with years of sail and power mega-yacht experience. Unlike many other used East Bay 49s on the market today, she reflects the latest engine technology, current navigation technologies, new electrical systems and galley appliances, and a host of other thoughtful conveniences as well as sparkling, distinctive aesthetics. She’s a one-of-a-kind, supremely detailed and updated example of a proven, production-series yacht, in mint condition.
