Motoryacht Design—Express Cruiser Performance

By Vince Daniello

Test Captain

Cruisers Yachts has always been known for performance, with all of their models targeting a cruising speed at least in the mid-twenties from standard power, and with most models well exceeding that. On larger yachts these numbers are often achieved with diesel power, but in some areas of the country gasoline engines are more popular. With this in mind, the 395 Motoryacht was designed as the largest motoryacht in the Cruisers Yachts lineup that offers exhilarating performance with either gas or diesel power.

Impressive Handling & Performance

While it is one thing to claim performance it is another to actually provide it, which the 395 does. In five foot swells off Fort Lauderdale our test boat topped out at 35 mph, and clearly would have gone faster in calmer water with Cruisers Yachts claiming about 36 mph at wide-open-throttle. With twin 420 horsepower Volvo 8.1 liter gas inboards, the boat cruised most economically at 4000 RPM, making 29.3 mph and providing a 188 mile range. Overall, both performance and handling of the boat were more what I would expect from an express cruiser, better than the typical motoryacht.

Maximizing Space

In addition to performance, the 395 offers lots of space inside and out. This is most noticeable on the bridge where a very large crescent shaped settee provides plenty of seating near the captain, with a removable high-low table for dining or cocktails. Just a few steps down from the helm, the aft deck can be equipped with a built in settee or left open for the owner’s choice of furnishings. But what was most noticeable here is how the bridge and aft deck are closely tied together with a clear sense that entire area is all part of a single, large outdoor living space. So just as with the boat’s performance, the exterior layout is more reminiscent of an express cruiser than a motoryacht.

One of the ways Cruisers Yachts maximizes space on the bridge is to make the side walkways to the bow as narrow as possible, increasing the width available both on the bridge and in the salon. While this is a common tradeoff in yacht design, the company has done a very good job minimizing the side decks while still providing adequate passage to the bow. They accomplished this by angling the cabin sides in slightly and flaring the railings out slightly, so while the deck is narrow, there is plenty of width up around hip level. Unfortunately the horn was mounted on the starboard side of the cabin on our test boat, which encroached a bit on the walk forward. We tested the prototype boat, so the horn may be relocated on the final production model, and even if it isn’t, it wasn’t hard to maneuver around the horn with numerous handrails along the entire trip from aft deck to bow, including railings on the front of the cabin.


While the narrow walkways increase space in the salon, Cruisers Yachts also raised the side decks slightly, allowing the entire width of the hull for salon furnishings, with the side decks encroaching slightly on the width of the salon only above shoulder level. This makes the 395 salon significantly larger than the 375 model this boat replaces, even though the boat’s beam remains the same. Large windows and an open layout further enhance the spacious feel inside the boat, and similar design tweaks increase room throughout the boat. The master stateroom, for instance, features a generous queen bed set nearly fore-and-aft but at a slight angle. This allows enough room to walk around the starboard side of the bed but makes best use of space in the rest of the stateroom, which is again noticeably larger than the master stateroom of the previous 375 model.

Choice of Gas or Diesel

In their quest to provide generous accommodations and invigorating performance from gasoline engines, Cruisers Yachts has succeeded admirably. The boat is also offered with twin Volvo diesels, up to 370 horsepower each. Because of the increased torque provided by diesel engines, these engines should offer similar top end performance, and an increased cruising speed. But whichever engines, the Cruisers Yachts 395 offers the added accommodations of an aft cabin motoryacht without losing the sporty feel and functional exterior layout of an express cruiser.
