Length w/ Pulpit:
Monterey always packs a lot of features into their sport cruisers, and the Monterey 282 has everything a family needs to enjoy a long weekend afloat. Built on a deep-V hull with a wide 10-foot beam, the 282 is a comfortable boat below and her floorplanwith its booth-style dinetteis very different from most midsize cruisers. Although the galley is on the small side with little counter space, the big dinette is both functional and very innovative in design. The head is also very large and comes with a hinged seat over the toilet, which makes changing clothes (or taking a shower) very comfortable. An athwartships double berth is forward, and twin settees in the midcabin convert into a large double berth. (Note that the dinette can also be converted into a berth for a couple of kids.) Topside, the cockpit is arranged with an aft-facing seat behind the double helm, wet bar with storage to port, and a removable rear seat. A transom door opens to a big swim platform where dock lines and fenders can be stored in a transom box. A fast ride with optional 260hp MerCruiser sterndrives, the Monterey 282 will cruise at close to 30 knots and reach a top speed of 40+ knots.
