Whether you are purchasing your very first yacht cruiser or are a long-time owner looking for your new obsession, the wide variety of available cruisers can make finding your perfect vessel a daunting task. To find the cruiser that is right for you, you need to narrow your choices. The first step is identifying your boating lifestyle and intended use. Consider the activities you love, the number of people you plan to take on your adventures, and the price range that fits your budget. With that information in mind, the following guide to cruiser types should help you decide which cruiser is the best fit:
The ideal vessel for first time owners, express cruisers are easy to operate and built with a large open deck that makes them perfect for entertaining. These sleek vessels are well-equipped for day trips, coastal cruising, and weekend adventures, and roomy enough to fit family or guests.
Agile and maneuverable, cuddy cruisers feature a closed deck over the bow that creates a cozy sleeping area that makes them perfect for family outings or trips with friends. Many models include a head and sink, and even a limited cooking area. Available options make them the perfect vessel for families that enjoy skiing and wakeboarding.
Cruising and Fishing – if you are a fan of both, a convertible is for you! These versatile vessels are sometimes relegated to the category of sportfishers, but they are so much more. Convertibles offer angler-friendly features, but come with added comforts that make them a perfect vessel for weekends on the water with the family, such as luxurious salons and multiple staterooms.
Sleek lines, a large swim platform, and multiple staterooms make sedan cruisers the perfect choice for sophisticates looking to entertain. They typically feature Euro-styling and comfortable accommodations, and come well-equipped for short adventures, but are a little cramped to serve as a live aboard.
Motor Yacht Cruisers
If extended trips, ocean cruising, and lavish entertaining suits your style, you need to travel in a motor yacht. These luxurious vessels come in a variety of sizes and styles, but all come with multiple staterooms and share an emphasis on creature comforts. Larger models often require a crew and make perfect live-aboard vessels. Features include generous accommodations, spacious indoor salons, and formal dining areas.
If your answer to “Which Cruiser is Right for Me?” is a motor yacht, then Watercolours, a lovingly maintained 115′ Trinity Yacht offered by Atlantic Yacht and Ship, could be your ideal vessel. Built in 1990, this raised pilothouse motor yacht received an extensive refit in the summer of 2007, including a complete remodeling of the main deck and a transformation of the previous formal dining room salon into a chic country kitchen. The renovated kitchen is the social center of the vessel, featuring panoramic views forward and dining for up to 10 guests.
