Cruiser 52With the launch of new 2017 yacht, Cruisers re-enters flybridge segment.

Cruisers Yachts, a brand of KCS International, Inc., announces the 60 Flybridge, featuring enhanced views and more living space. The 2017 model year 60 Flybridge will be unveiled this summer and available at dealerships in the fall.

“The launch of the 60 Flybridge is exciting for us as we once again enter the flybridge segment of the market,” says Matt VanGrunsven, director of marketing at KCS International, Inc. “We are excited to bring this new segment to our customers and dealer network.”

The 60 Flybridge promises more views, more sun, and more of what boaters love about being on the water. It’s another level of entertaining that is more exposed and allows users to embrace nature’s elements while underway.

Flybridge
The flybridge is equipped with a centerline helm station with seating for captain and mate, additional lounge seating forward and U-shaped seating with a table at the aft. The bridge also has a wetbar area. The profile retains its sleek exterior lines and aggressive stance.

Main Deck
The interior features light/dark wood combinations, contrasting materials, and a linear look. In addition to the flybridge, there is no shortage of places to entertain. The cockpit features a large seating area and bar with two stools at the cockpit. A refrigerator, icemaker and grill come standard. Above, a sunshade awning provides protection when needed.

Entertainment is also made seamless – with the cockpit, galley, salon, and helm all on one level. Guests can move easily from outside to inside through the open bulkhead where they are greeted by a portside galley at the center of entertaining. The galley features a refrigerator with freezer, full sink, stovetop, microwave and storage. A dishwasher is optional.

Facing the galley, on the starboard side, is the upper salon. A sofa with seating for three is flanked by end tables with plentiful storage. A 50” flat-screen TV raises when in use and conceals when not. A state-of-the-art sound bar is above. The TV is in easy view of a portside U-shaped dining area. With seating for up to six adults, it’s perfect for dining or cocktails. A hi-lo table serves as a dining table, cocktail table or coffee table. The entire space is open, airy and light-filled thanks to operable windows on each side. A seamless windshield up front completes the 360-degree picturesque views.

Moving to the helm station, the captain and first mate will enjoy STIDD brand chairs. Each features their own arm rests and flip up bolsters. Also at the helm, boaters will find the latest in electronic navigation. Touchscreen technology on electronic monitors easily controls both navigation and digital switching. Electrical systems can also be controlled and monitored by iPad, iPhone and even remotely.

Other technical advancements on board include Bluetooth controlled stereos, Polk audio and three sound bars throughout. Head units are standard in the upper salon and Master stateroom and are optional for the foredeck and secondary stateroom. All music and movies are streamed digitally; there are no CD or DVD players on board.

Moving to the bow, the foredeck is an ideal space for sunning, lounging and entertaining. The foredeck is accessed from the stairs in the cockpit, which lead to port and starboard sidewalks. Bench seating with cup holders can be found at the brow of the foredeck. There are two sun lounge areas with cup holders, a cooler and cocktail table. An optional Bimini awning provides shade when needed.

Finally, the swim platform can be raised with a hydraulic lift to haul a jet ski, tender, or dingy. There is also an optional crew’s quarters available.

Cruisers Yachts 42 GLSBy Andy Adams

Once again, Cruisers Yachts is leading the market for day boats with their new 42 GLS model that premiered at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show at the end of October. The concept of a large day boat is now a very well-established trend made possible by the amazing new power and efficiency of the latest four stroke outboards.

Buyers are looking for a different boating experience and we think that the 42 GLS nails it. Fast, handsome and versatile, the 42 GLS is designed for fun and adventure.

WinterizationBy Andrew McDonald, Lakeside Marine Services

“They don’t make ‘em like they used to”, is a phrase that many of us are familiar with. Most of the time it is in reference to a bygone era of better, and it’s used to lament the sorry state of what we have today. It is a phrase that can be applied to many areas of our lives: architecture, art, furniture, tools. Boats? I would argue that they don’t make them like they used to. But, is that lamentable, or is it progress?

Progress, I think. With this concept in mind, as we enter another season of putting boats to bed for the winter, why do we winterize as we always have?
