459 Cockpit Motor Yacht
Length w/ Pulpit:
A popular model, the Meridian 459 is a cockpit version of the Meridian 408 Motor Yacht introduced in 2003. Built on a low-deadrise hull with a wide beam, the Meridians expansive two-stateroom interior is her most notable feature. Tiered windows provide near 360-degree visibility in the salon, and the built-in entertainment center aft includes a flat-screen TV. The galley is down a couple of steps from the salon, and high-gloss cherry woodwork is applied throughout. With her big salon and spacious bow stateroom, its hardly a surprise to find that the master stateroom is on the small side for a yacht this size. Here, the head and shower compartments are separatedand the bed is positioned athwartshipsto save space, and a sliding glass door provides direct access to the large cockpit. Topside, a wet bar and bench seating are standard on the small aft deck, and the bridge is arranged with guest seating aft of the centerline helm. Additional features include an extended swim platform, hardtop, and cockpit storage lockers. Fuel capacity is somewhat modest for a boat this size. Cummins 425hp diesels cruise at 20 knots (2324 knots top).
