motor yacht/cruisers

Looking for the good life on the water? For many, the dream scene is aboard a motor yacht, a vessel typically 40 feet long or longer that’s powered by powerful single or twin engines. Lately some have been equipped with two to four pod drives, giving added maneuverability and joystick steering for close quarters. These are the boats that make voyages from continent to continent and ply large rivers or the Great Lakes. Generated electricity, air conditioning, and complete plumbing provide all the comforts of home, while amidst far-off adventures. Launch systems are often available to deploy personal watercraft and tenders as need and desire dictate.

Yachts and cruisers are often set up to be captained from either of two locations: a conventional helm or set of controls in the cabin and another on a ‘fly bridge’ or elevated platform.

Want to dream bigger yet? Superyachts start at about 100 feet and much of that additional space is dedicated to even more luxurious accommodations. Staterooms, walk-in closets, full-size and panoramic windows — and crew quarters — are the norm.
