Entering the massive salon you can't help being overwhelmed by the comfort and warmth of the book matched teak interior finished off in hand rubbed satin varnish. The large salon windows offer a fantastic view from all vantage points as well as letting in natural lighting. The galley is situated just forward of the salon blending seamlessly together. The galley is outfitted with commercial grade appliances all neatly concealed in teak cabinetry.

As you move below decks down the companionway to port you enter the stunning master stateroom and ensuite head, again the shear size is overwhelming. Full size king berth flanked by teak end tables, double hanging lockers offer incredible storage throughout.

Merritt Yachts

Merritt Boats has a rich history out of Pompano Beach, Florida dating back to 1948. This is a boat brand that signifies growth in the South Florida sportfish industry. Many changes have occurred since the boat yard was started in 1948. While the Merritt 37 footers have grown to include yachts up to 86 feet, with many luxurious enhancements, the small Mom & Pop ambiance of the boat yard has basically remained the same. As a family-owned and operated boat yard, Merritt maintains a very high quality standard with complete control from conception to fabrication to installation and final delivery.
