Length w/ Pulpit:
Navigator had a winning design with the 53 Classic, a California-built pilothouse yacht whose competitive price hit the sweet spot with boaters on both coasts. Built on a solid fiberglass hull with an integral swim platform, the Navigators 15-foot beam is slender for a motoryacht this size. The pilothouse interior has the galley forward, separated from the aft salon by a serving counter with two stools. While the salon dimensions are modest, the galley is huge with a double sink, upright refrigerator/freezer, and tons of storage. Up two steps to the helm level is the U-shaped dining area and steps to the flybridge. The staterooms are accessed down a staircase forward of the helm to starboard. A master stateroom with walkaround queen bed is amidships; VIP stateroom with queen berth is forward, and the guest stateroom with upper/lower bunks is to port. Both heads have separate stall showers. The Navigators large cockpit includes lazarette storage and a transom door. Note that the flybridge cannot be accessed from the cockpit. Topside, wraparound lounge seating aft of the helm will seat several guests. Volvo 430hp diesels cruise 18-20 knots.
