405-415 Express Motor Yacht
Length w/ Pulpit:
The 405 Express Motor Yacht is what Cruisers marketing execs called a crossover yacht, meaning that she offers the upper-deck attributes of an express cruiser and the interior comforts of an aft-cabin motor yacht. In fact, the Cruisers 405 was an innovative yacht in 2003. While her top-heavy profile is distracting, her belowdeck accommodations are very impressive. Built on a fully cored hull, the 405s express-style helm and cockpit arrangement keep the captain and passengers in the same general area. A sliding door next to the helm leads down to the salon with its faux leather upholstery, cherry woodwork, and tiered side windows. A fully equipped galley and four-person dinette are to starboard in the salon, and a hatch in the floor provides access to the engine room. The staterooms are hugelarger than one expects in a boat this size. Both contain a queen berth and private head access, and a washer/dryer in the aft stateroom is built into the starboard corner. Note that the forward head is split with the shower and toilet in separate compartments. A good performer with optional 420hp Cat diesels, the 405 will cruise in the low 20s and reach a top speed of 2728 knots.
