Length w/ Pulpit:
Once a rarity in the world of full-production boats, 50-something express yachts were a fast-growing segment of the luxury yacht market until the Great Recession hit. This popular model (called the 5370 Express in 2002; 5470 Express in 2003; 540 Express in 200406; and the 560 Express in 200711) is the largest express-boat offering yet from Cruisers. The interior is finished entirely in cherrywood with excellent detailing, and Cruisers offers a choice of two- or three-stateroom layouts. Each stateroom has a full head with shower and a washer/dryer can be added in either configuration. (Note that the hardwood dinette table in the salon retracts electrically into the floor when not in use.) Topside, the circular lounge aft in the cockpit converts at the push of a button into a huge sun pad. Visibility from the walkaround helm is excellent and wide side decks provide secure access to the foredeck. Additional features include a fully cored hull, prop pockets, excellent access to the spacious engine room, and an extended swim platform with a transom compartment for an optional davit. Among several engine choices, Volvo 715hphp V-drive diesels cruise at 28 knots (low to mid 30s top).
