Sleeps a total of up to four in two staterooms. Spacious, bright MAIN SALON with comfortable settees port and starboard, helm, full instrumentation, Ultraleather double helm seat and heavy-duty stainless steel door open to the side deck. Steps lead down and forward to the full U-shaped GALLEY to port, with washer/dryer under the steps. Across and to starboard, is the mid-ship MASTER STATEROOM, with full Queen bed, ample drawer and hanging locker storage and a private HEAD with its own enclosed shower stall. Moving forward is the GUEST STATEROOM with centered Queen bed, drawer and hanging locker storage and its own private HEAD with separate shower.
Stepping aboard QUARTERLY's broad, teak swim platform, (equipped with with underwater lights), the NOVURANIA 355DL 11' RIB hard bottom inflatable dinghy with 25 HP 4-stroke Yamaha outboard motor is seen cradled in its hydraulically-powered SEALIFT system - rated for 770 lbs. The SeaLift is conveniently controlled by an inboard switch on the transom, or by a wireless remote. The stainless steel collapsible swim ladder is stowed underneath.
Moving onto the Aft Deck via the sturdy transom door, is both safe and convenient. With a large bench settee aft, upholstered in a fresh blue and white patterned Sunbrella fabric and boasting a custom, folding, teak high-gloss varnished table, with drink holders, the spacious aft deck can provide comfortable accommodations for eight guests or more. High quality custom-varnished teak Director's Chairs, with brass hardware complete the gracious setting.
An electrically actuated self-supporting Bimini, covering the entire aft deck, and providing welcome shade from the sun, can be extended as desired, or fully retracted into the roof of the Salon.
Additionally, the Aft Deck boasts a port-side wet bar with sink and hot and cold water, a Vitrofrigo drinks refrigerator underneath, and to starboard, a Miele 220V electric Grill (never used), with storage cabinet underneath.
Owners and Captains alike will appreciate the additional Aft Control Station hidden in the Port Wing, with Volvo IPS Joy-Stick and Sleipner Sidepower Bow-Thruster controls for precision low-speed maneuvering and single-handed docking.
To complete the equipment, the Aft Deck has hot and cold outside shower connections and Glendinning CableMaster controls for retracting the 50 Amp shore power cable. An additional remote control for the Glendinning CableMaster is an added convenience.
Beneath the Aft Deck are two capacious Lazarettes and the Engine Room. All engine servicing is via this Aft Deck access, never from the Salon. The over-sized Engine Hatch, which is lockable, incorporates pneumatic lifters for ease of operation.
The engine room is a showpiece in itself, with bright AC or DC LED lighting and excellent dual ventilation systems. It offers ample space and is thoughtfully laid out for accessing all major systems. These include the twin Volvo D11 diesel engines forward, the 13.5kW ONAN Generator forward in its soundproof enclosure, the Sea Recovery 900 Gal/Day Water Maker, RACOR Fuel Filters, Battery Boxes, Four A/C Units, and the twin Volvo IPS950 drives aft.
With only 275 hours' running time, Quarterly's systems are in as-new condition, or better.
Moving forward, the SALON is entered via massive, highly polished stainless-steel and glass doors, comprising 6 individual sections (4 sliding, 2 fixed). These retract to connect the Aft Deck to the Salon in one flowing, integrated entertaining space. With the doors closed, and the integrated custom blinds extended, the Salon may be instantly transformed into a secure, private haven.
The overall impression of the Salon is one of light and airiness. The large windows all-around, huge windshield and full-size Webasto electrically powered sunroof (with screen and sunshade) combine to provide excellent natural light and a panoramic view. The side windows, port and starboard, are electrically operated. All windows come with custom Hunter Douglas blinds for shade and privacy. The powerful 24,000 BTU dedicated tropical grade A/C and Heating unit maintains the Salon at a perfect temperature in any season.
The port-side L-shaped settee, upholstered in a tasteful cream fabric, wraps around the varnished teak dining table. The telescopic lift mechanism allows the perfect height adjustment and there is an additional flap for extending the table-top.
Aft of the settee is a custom teak bottle and glass cabinet, also housing the KVH TracVision Satellite TV tuner and Fusion Marine Stereo/DVD System. USB ports are thoughtfully provided throughout the boat.
To the starboard side of the salon is a second, complementary L-shaped settee. Behind, is the custom teak storage cabinet which houses the 42" LG TV, fully retractable, by remote control. The TV is invisible when stowed.
Forward in the Salon is the Helm Station with double-width Stidd Chair with custom "Buff" Ultraleather upholstery. Offering accommodation for two persons in great comfort, this allows an outstanding view through the enormous three-piece windshield. The starboard helm door, is an Opacmare Pantograph type, which like the Aft doors, is of a massive highly polished stainless-steel construction, locked and secured by powerful, electric actuators, to ensure absolute watertightness and security.
Running the Eastbay 50 is made especially easy and convenient by the high degree of sophistication and integration within the computerized controls.
For example, the Humphree Interceptor System represents a vast improvement over former generation trim tabs. By adding 'smarts', trimming is automatic at any speed, with additional stabilization control provided by the two trim tabs operating independently, like the ailerons on an aircraft.
A further example is the ONAN generator. Start-up and shut-down are both fully automatic, activated by a simple touch on the digital screen.
The SmartSwitch TD400 digital tank monitoring system is a further convenience, providing levels in all fuel tanks. as well as the fresh water tank. There is a a further Sealand DTM holding tank level display.
Quarterly has two, fully independent depth sounders, with duplicated depth transducers and duplicated displays.
The Volvo engine controls are 'ne plus ultra' and are a benchmark in marine technology. Low-speed maneuvering is facilitated by the IPS Joy-Stick control, with additional assistance from the Bow-Thruster. The boat may be commanded to move in any direction: forward, aft, or sideways to port or starboard, or to rotate within her own length.
Once clear of the dock, the boat is run conventionally, with twin throttles and the ship's wheel, or via the latest generation Autopilot.
Underway, Quarterly rides superbly in all sea conditions, and is extremely competent, with all systems working harmoniously to provide safe, dry operation. Cruising at 25 kn, Quarterly can achieve 32 kn when needed.
The forward facing Volvo IPS 950 drives feature counter-rotating props on each pod, for maximum efficiency and elimination of torque-steer effects. The pods also house discreet underwater engine exhausts.
The engine systems are monitored from a compact, 7'' Volvo integrated digital panel, incorporating straightforward simulated analog gauges for RPM, Temperature, Oil Pressure etc. Within each gauge, the red 'needle' shows the port engine condition and the green 'needle' the starboard engine condition. It is a masterpiece of simplicity and convenience.
The twin FURUNO multifunction touch screen displays offer the fullest range of radar, charting, depth, weather, wind and autopilot features and options, with excellent visibility from full direct sunlight, to night time running.
Adjacent to the Helm Station is the Electric Breaker Panel, covering all on-board systems and conveniently illuminated by LED strip lighting on each side.
Moving forward, the teak companionway steps lead down to the portside Gourmet Galley. Fully open, the galley is bathed in light from above, as well as from the long low fixed window above the counter top. The Galley immediately feels fully connected to the Helm Station and Salon.
The Galley has a dedicated 12,000 BTU A/C unit.
The custom Giallo Topazio Granite counter top offers an extensive area for meal preparation, while the Miele four-burner electric stove top and combination Sharp Convection/Microwave oven below is a Chef's delight.
Complementing the very ample storage, there is a dedicated pull out locker for glasses and crystal. Adjacent is the two-drawer SUB-ZERO 700BR refrigerator.
The stainless steel sink offers a stainless steel Grohe faucet for the usual hot and cold water, a liquid soap dispenser, plus a faucet for filtered water from the SeaGull Water Purification system. The onboard water-maker produces an endless supply of fresh water, which tastes better than many premium bottled brands. Outboard of the sink is the top-loading WEACO CB-36 freezer.
The Companionway steps from the Salon may be raised effortlessly (with pneumatic lifters) to reveal a full size Splendide WD2100 combination WASHER/DRYER (never used), with overboard vent.
Across from the Galley, to starboard, is the mid-berth Queen-size Master Stateroom Suite. This is entered through elegant double doors, revealing an island bed. Beneath the bed, and easily accessible with the aid of pneumatic lifters, is a very large storage locker.
The Stateroom offers extensive drawer and locker space, including a cedar-lined closet with pull out hanging rail for very easy access.
Above the bed head is a most attractive long, low fixed window, and either side are bureaus with personal reading lamps above. The Suite has its own 12,000 BTU A/C zone and controls and a wall-mounted 28" Samsung TV.
This fully private suite incorporates a head and separate shower. Above the "Crema Marfil" marble vanity are custom sliding mirrors that may be retracted to reveal spacious shelving for toiletries, as well as an unexpected fixed window. Equally, with the mirrors extended, the toiletries are hidden and full privacy is ensured.
The head has an opening hatch above for daylight, and fresh air. A sunshade and screen are built in.
Moving forward from the Galley or mid-ship Master Stateroom, a fully teak paneled passageway leads to a further Queen-sized Guest Stateroom. Again, this boasts cedar-lined closets, ample drawer storage, personal reading lamps, a dedicated 12,000 BTU A/C zone, and in this case, a opening hatch above, for daylight and fresh air, with built-in sunshade and screen.
The ensuite head and shower utilize the same vanity and convenient sliding mirror arrangement as the mid-ship Master Stateroom. The head may also be accessed by a separate door from the passageway, to serve as a day head.
The head has an opening hatch above for daylight, and fresh air. A sunshade and screen are built in.
Moving up and outside to the foredeck, owners and guests alike will enjoy the very large sunbed, (with four drink holders). The sunbed is custom upholstered in navy and white Sunbrella fabric to match the aft bench seat. When not in use, the sunbed is protected by a custom Sunbrella cover.
At the Pulpit is the gleaming, highly polished stainless steel Suncor anchor (never used) and Maxwell VWC DC anchor windlass with chain gypsy and capstan. (There is a windlass remote at the helm).
Quarterly offers lavish accommodations, featuring very extensive custom matching teak cabinetry and paneling throughout, as well as a flawless, unblemished teak and holly cabin sole, protected and enhanced by custom fitted designer carpets.
The entire boat reflects the Owners' impeccable taste. Quarterly is furnished in an elegant, yet unfussy nautical style, as a serious cruising home.
Quarterly is ready to cruise and will convey with all custom monogrammed towels, coverlets, pillows, teak Director's Chairs and Cushions. In addition all linens and glass, china and tableware complement the conveying inventory.
Quarterly appears perfect in every way and may be considered truly better than new.
