Layout and Accommodations

The Grand Banks 43 Europa offers a two stateroom, two head arrangement
with a large salon, galley up, huge flybridge and spacious cockpit. The
side decks are wide and covered and boarding is a breeze either through
the port and starboard side midship gates or the transom door which
leads one from the oversized teak swim platform into the covered
cockpit. The flybridge is accessed via a stairway and the amount of
built in seating, wetbar and full featured helm with two Stidd chairs is
unmatched in boats of this size. The custom hardtop provides a
minimal amount of canvas and forward curtains cut down on the breeze for
piloting from above even in less than perfect weather.

to the cabin is via an oversized sliding door and the owner of Eden's
Gate added not only phantom roll away screens but also phantom roll away
shades to both the salon and pilothouse doors. The salon feels open
and bright thanks to large side windows that open as well as a three
panel windshield with power vented center panel. Storage is abundant
throughout the boat including deep drawer storage below the salon
settee's, cabinet storage everywhere you look in the galley and both
locker and drawer storage in the staterooms.

Electronics and Navigation

The owner of "Eden's Gate" wanted to have a complete and
comprehensive electronics package installed stateside and chose to have
the system designed, blue printed and installed by Mid-Shore Electronics
in Cambridge. The boat was taken to their facility and with no expense
spared the owner came away with one of the best electronics packages
(components, layout, wiring, etc.) that you will find in any boat
including that of much larger yachts. The Airmar transducer was shipped
to the Grand Banks factory ahead of time for a factory thru-hull
installation and Grand Banks also custom built the lower teak helm
station or "himalaya" to specifically accommodate dual 15″ Garmin

Engine Room and Mechanicals

*Cummins Power Systems Maintained and All Services Up to Date*

owner of Eden's Gate knew he wanted a gyro stabilizer and hardtop when
he first started thinking about constructing a Grand Banks 43. He also
didn't want the added weight of these items along with other cruising
equipment to effect the performance of the boat and its versatility to
cruise anywhere from displacing speeds to over 20 knots. With the help
of Grand Banks (including that of Bruce Livingston) and Cummins
engineering teams the solution was to go with the larger 550hp Cummins
QSC 8.3L motors over the boats standard 480hp QSB 6.7L motors. The
larger block motors also don't have to work so hard for comparable
horsepower resulting in added longevity. Coupled with the Zeus pods,
joystick and skyhook along with a factory installed bow thruster this
package delivers all the power and reliability needed underway with the
ease of maneuverability for docking, locks and bridges!

Broker's Note

"Eden's Gate" was one of the most thought out and customized Grand Banks that I have had ever had the pleasure to build and sell. With several years of thought studying the 41 Europa the owner of this boat knew exactly what he wanted when the much improved 43 came out. Engineering teams from GB, Cummins and Seakeeper all contributed to building this boat with the power and stability unmatched in any other 43 Europa. Topped off with a one hundred thousand dollar plus electronics package done here stateside by a top of the line installer and a custom built hardtop with attention to detail right down to the polished welds, this is a one of a kind yacht! 

I visited the Grand Banks factory to inspect and sea trial this boat prior to shipping and we have detailed drawings and build pictures that I would be happy to share with any serious parties.
