Captain's ReportLearn about the back story of Cruisers Yachts here...An exciting blend of performance and luxury, Cruisers Yachts 370 Express exhibits world class manufacturing with contemporary styling. With a reputation for innovation and attention to detail, the 3772 had been modified and renamed the 370.As we begin our tour of the 370 express cruiser, we find a large swim platform and a deep transom storage hatch for fenders and lines. Integrated into the platform, are two self- draining storage lockers and a concealed boarding ladder. To port is the transom door that will lead you to the large u-shaped settee that converts to a sun lounge or a dinning table with room for all your guests during those special sunset meals. Directly to port, is a wet bar with plenty of counter space, a sink and optional icemaker/ refrigerator. As we move forward we notice the inviting chase lounge to port.The starboard helm is well laid out with all the controls and instrumentation within easy reach. There is also plenty of room in the dash for adding your favorite electronic necessities. A molded fiberglass radar arch accents the cockpit and provides all the space you’ll need for antennas and securing the convertible top. When it is time to access the anchor windlass, you will appreciate the molded steps and stainless steel handrail for accessing the foredeck.Access through the companionway is via a three-piece Plexiglas door. The top piece slides into the foredeck neatly and the bi-fold doors lock in place when open. A few steps down and you’re in the 370’s salon, where the luxuries of a fine cruiser await you. One of the trademarks of Cruisers Yachts is their attention to detail. This is apparent in the salon, where the handsomely appointed interior is finished in cherry wood and supple tan leather upholstery. You can choose from several interior décor schemes, all of which are very well done to please the taste of the most discerning customers.Inside the spacious salon, a leather settee is located to starboard. The settee’s complementary cherry wood dinning table, provide you with a relaxed spot to eat your gourmet meals. To port, is the L-shaped galley, complete with a fridge, sink, cook top, microwave and a TV with VCR. The granite style counter top and cherry wood cabinets add a classy European look to the cabin. While large, half moon Bomar ceiling hatches provide good light and ventilation when needed. The forward stateroom features an island berth with storage below and cedar lined hanging closets to port and starboard. Directly above the berth is a large round hatch, allowing lots of light and good ventilation. A privacy curtain is standard for the stateroom, but you can opt for a bulkhead and door configuration. Located to port, is an ample sized head with vanity. A separate stand-up shower compartment is located just forward of the head.Similar to other boats in the Cruiser line-up, two different floor plans are available for your guest’s accommodation. You can choose from either a double stateroom layout with an aft cabin and two single bunks, or, a single stateroom layout that boast a roomier salon and comfortable settee with generous headroom. The settee folds out and converts into a double birth, should you decide to bring guests along. Back at the bridge, we put the 370 through its paces. Cruisers Yachts offers several engine packages in gasoline power. Two are available from MerCruiser and two from Crusader and range from 370 to 425 horsepower. If you wish to go with diesel engines, then you can choose either the 315 or 370 horsepower Yanmar power plants. Whether you choose gas or diesel, the V-drive configuration provides good space management and makes minor maintenance a breeze. Performance and handling are good for a vessel of this size, but I was surprised at the ride that the Express provided. It was a little bumpy compared to other boats in its class. The ride also resulted in the windshield shaking to the point of annoyance. These are attributes that I did not experience in other Cruisers Yachts that we tested. Despite this, the 3772 is an exceptionally engineered and manufactured boat, and is undeniably one of the finest express cruiser on the market today.By Capt. Ron SvobodaTest Captain
