A stylish boat in her day with a rakish profile, the Cruisers 3580/3585 (same boat, different floorplans) was one of the first flybridge yachts to replace the traditional cockpit ladder with molded flybridge stepsa feature now common to most modern flybridge cruisers. This was, back in the mid-1990s, an innovative design in a boat of this type, and while molded steps eat up some valuable cockpit space, theres no disputing the fact that they make bridge access a whole lot more civilized. Built on a conventional modified-V hull with cored hullsides and prop pockets to reduce shaft angles, the original 3580 interior has the galley down with an optional lower helm (with poor outside visibility), while the newer 3585 floorplan introduced in 1998 has an elevated lower helm as standard with the galley forward in the salon. Both floorplans are arranged with a small midcabin that extends under the salon. Note that the side decks are very narrow and the engine compartment, beneath the cockpit sole, is a tight fit. An optional extended swim platform is wide enough for a personal watercraft. Standard 7.4-liter V-drive gas inboards cruise the Cruisers 3580/3585 at 18 knots and reach 2627 knots wide open.
