Captain's Report

Learn about the back story of Cruisers Yachts here...Cruisers Yachts introduces the 3470 Express which replaces the earlier 3375 Express model for 2001. She is offered with two layout options and has sleeping accommodations for six.The cockpit offers plenty of seating room for friends and family, and the swim platform is big enough for two or three adults to sit on side by side while getting on their gear. There’s also a convenient wet bar, cockpit shower, and refrigerator or ice maker in the cockpit, which is a great feature on any boat. The helm station is well situated with all the controls and gauges in handy, easy to reach places with good room left over for additional electronics. The 3470 features many of the amenities you will need while cruising. There’s good natural light down in the cabin through six portholes and a round forward hatch. The cabin features a forward V-berth that has a privacy curtain and good storage space on either side as well as below the berth. To starboard there’s a dinette area that features a drop down table that can be converted into a double berth for two. Across the way is a full galley complete with refrigerator/freezer, two-burner electric cooktop, microwave oven, and good cabinet space for utensils and groceries. The head is unusual for a boat her size because of its headroom, separate shower with molded-in seat, and overall space to move around. The aft berth features comfortable accommodations for two and also has a privacy curtain for the couples aboard. Out on our test run the 3470 Express performed as expected, with precise handling capabilities and good stability. Her top speed was 38.2 mph at 4300 rpm and her best cruise was 31.1 mph at 3500 rpm, giving her an overall cruising range of 196 miles. The 3470 Express is a good-looking cruiser that offers many of the features and accommodations that are found on much larger boats. Cruisers Yachts has created a cruiser with a well-thought-out layout, quality construction, and good craftsmanship. For more information call (920) 834-2797 or visit cruisersyachts.com.
