50' Grand Banks 2015 East Bay FB
Customer purchased new 50' East Bay FB Grandbanks and had list of post purchase upgrades / improvements for vessel. Customer desired to use this versatile and super performing vessel for sportfishing as well as cruising. These upgrades included new HRO watermaker, RUPP outriggers and rod holders, larger Phasor 17.5 KW generator with sound shield, Sea Vision underwater lights, Cook grill, Eskimo ice chipper, ACR search light, Algae X fuel conditioners, custom interior hi-lo table.
The original 9.5 KW Onan was far to small to operate the watermaker, eskimo ice chipper and existing electrical load. The new 17.5 Phasor Generator with sound shield replaced the original Onan. Gillen Diesel is very skilled at fabricating the necessary modifications required to install a large unit into a very small space. This modification actually improved the ability to service and maintain the generator.
Installed the HRO Safari 1400 GPD modular watermaker unit with commercial pre-filters. By uitlizing a modular unit this provided the ability to install a large capacity watermaker in a small vessel which is what the owner required.
Insulated an existing storage box and use it for the Eskimo Ice Chipper install.
