Length w/ Pulpit:
The Meridian 540 Pilothouse offers buyers a level of comfort and luxury usually associated with more expensive yachts. Pilothouse boats have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their handsome lines and all-weather cruising capabilities. In the case of the 540, Meridian designers delivered a notably handsome yacht whose graceful lines incorporate the best in modern pilothouse styling. Built on a modified-V hull with a wide 16'3"" beam, the three-stateroom interior is as spacious as it gets in a yacht this size. The focal point of the 540 is her large pilothouse with its wraparound dinette, flybridge stairway, and centerline helm position. Large windows offer a panoramic view from the salon, and both the master and forward staterooms are fitted with queen berths. Clever storage solutions, a full complement of home-style appliances, and a well-appointed decor make the Meridians interior as practical as it is inviting. Additional features include a flybridge davit, extended swim platform, bow and stern thrusters, and flybridge wet bar. Note that the engine room is accessed directly from the cockpit. A modest performer with Cummins 635hp diesels, the Meridian 540 will cruise at 20+ knots.
