Length w/ Pulpit:
Introduced in 1993, the Sundance 5300 is a mid-tier pilothouse yacht with distinctive lines and comfortable accommodations. The interior layout differs from later Navigator interiors in that the galley is on the pilothouse level rather than forward in the salon. This, together with the fact that there are no side decks, results in a surprisingly spacious salon in spite of the 5300s relatively narrow beam. For privacy, the master stateroom is accessed directly from the salon (rather than from the forward companionway), and because there is no pilothouse bulkhead the helmsman has a good view aft. A dinette is opposite the galley in the wheelhouse, and a nearby ladder leads up to the bi-level flybridge with its wraparound guest seating and dinghy storage area aft. Additional features include two pilothouse deck doors, a well-arranged engine room (accessed from a cockpit hatch), transom door, a shaded cockpit and large cabin windows in the salon. Notably, there is no flybridge access from the cockpit. Volvo 380hp diesels cruise the Navigator 5300 at 1618 knots and reach a top speed of about 20 knots.
