Cruisers Yachts 46 Cantius:
This New Model is Euro-American

Cruisers Yachts 46 Cantius
Cruisers Yachts 46 Cantius

The new Cruisers Yachts 46 Cantius continues and expands on the Euro-styling that the American builder adopted some years ago which was met with great success. What sets the Cantius 46 apart from many similar-looking boats built in Europe is its all-American ergonomics inside. Also, the folks at Cruisers Yachts know better than most anyone how Americans like to use their boats. For example, they want to be able to stand at the helm and see out the windshield, something not possible with many sleek Euro express cruisers where sitting is the only position permitted.

Leopard 43 PC
Leopard 43 PC

The 22'1" (6.73 m) beam of the Leopard 43 PC gives plenty of space for four staterooms and two heads in the twin hulls belowdecks. A three-stateroom option, with a larger master, is also available. Note the small single berths at the bow peaks, suitable for kids or nimble crewmen--or this area can be used for storage. Twin 320-hp Yanmar diesels give the Leopard a range of better than 1400 NM at about 6 knots, while top speed was 24.0 knots in our tests. More...

Sailfish 245DC:
Ergonomic Dual Console Design

Sailfish 245DC
Sailfish 245DC

The Sailfish 245DC, as can be seen in the image above, has seats that are designed for real people. Not only are most of them wide, but they also are plush, conform to the human body, and are positioned so a family can ride facing forward. The two aft-facing cockpit seats can be used for spotters when towing. We particularly like the fold down seats in the port and starboard gunwales, a remarkably functional idea for fishing and entertaining. More...
