"Eden's Gate II" is one of the most customized 43 Europa's that Grand Banks has ever crafted. Built to a knowledgeable yachtsman's specifications this original owner boat has always seen professional care and benefits from the continual light use of cruising here on the Chesapeake Bay. The boat truly shows in magnificent condition and her list of options and customizations set this boat far apart from any other 43 Europa with features to include:
Conveniently located in Baltimore's Inner Harbor just minutes off of I-95 and only 20-25 minutes away from Baltimore Washington International (BWI) Airport. Please contact listing broker to set up an appointment to see this very special yacht today!

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.
Entry 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.
Both helms feature a top of the line electronics package custom designed and blue printed by Mid Shore Electronics in Maryland. Dual touchscreen Garmin displays, Garmin Open Array 72NM radar, Garmin color sounder, SAT Weather, AIS, SAT Radio, Engine Room, Backup and FLIR Cameras, Color Seakeeper Displays, Dual Vessel Views at each station and more!
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 displays.
The 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!
"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.
