The table in the cockpit seen here in cocktail mode folds out and can seat 8 people for al fresco dining.
We like (and recommend) the optional electrically-actuated awning that extends from the lip of the coach roof cockpit overhang. Red arrows indicate the sheathing that fairs the overhang when the awning is not deployed.
There is a lot to like about the 50 Eastbay FB’s helm, starting with the full-teak treatment for which the company is famous. Note the clean console, the two large navigation screens and the side door at right.
The weather-proof pantograph side door even has a red and green light to indicate the door's status. Note the green light is on.
On the double-wide Stidd helm seat is a remote autopilot on the left arm rest. Now this is the only way to drive a powerboat!
On the right side is the boat's joystick, handy to the side door where the captain can stand when backing in to a slip.
Under the helm seat are two gas-assist pedestals that can raise or lower the helm seat for captain and companion. Note the fold-down foot rests.
In the salon the settee is built-in, thus saving space and weight. The deck is teak and holly, not synthetic.
Opposite the dinette settee is a large sofa for three. Taken together, the salon can seat 7 to 8 people and more with the stools.
The galley is down but open overhead to the main cabin to keep the cook within ear-shot of salon conversations. This design floods the galley with light and allows heat to rise. Note the counter work space and the fact that two people can be in the galley at once.
Looking aft in the galley we see that the microwave oven is at what we would consider the perfect height, something that is unusual in a boat. Refrigerator and freezer drawers are underneath.
The guest stateroom is huge for this size boat and is entered through double doors opposite the galley. In this way when the owners are aboard alone, they can open up the doors to provide more walk-around space. Its private entrance to the guest head/day head can be seen at left.
Flaked by night stands and surrounded by teak bulkheads and joiner work, this guest stateroom is about as large and as comfortable as possible in class.
The master stateroom is forward and the 50 Eastbay FB has done a good job of providing storage space with the four drawers below the bed and utilizing the bow flare for small cabinets overhead.
On the flying bridge the 50 Eastbay FB has pretty much all of the basic controls that appear at the lower station.
Here we have the Stidd helm and companion seats that are de rigueur on boats of this type.
Behind the helm there is an L-shaped settee with table which is sure to be a popular place for guests to ride when underway.
