Cruisers Yachts 338 OB:
South Beach Edition/Upscale Dayboat

Cruisers Yachts 338 OB
Cruisers Yachts 338 OB

Some boat owners on lakes across the northern part of America would like a crossover bowrider that is out of the ordinary. But they also want something that’s classy, well-built, and has the prestige that only the builder of larger, multi-million dollar yachts can bestow on a smaller cousin. For them, we suggest the South Beach Edition of the Cruisers Yachts 338 OB. She is not the same ol’, same ol’. With outboard twin 350-hp Mercury Verados, we’ve clocked her at speeds of better than 53 mph. More...

Captain's Report

Galeon 510 Skydeck:
Euro Lines and Inventive Engineering

Galeon 510 Skydeck
Galeon 510 Skydeck

The Galeon 510 Skydeck combines the sporty lines of a hardtop express cruiser with a flying sun pad with adjoining mini helm. Perhaps the most interesting option is the “beach mode” with side decks that fold out to widen the 14’8” (4.46 m) beam by 5’ (1.52 m). Note the two-stool cocktail bar on the port side. The aft couch rotates to face the swim platform which can lower down. More...

When boats are new, most everything works, but as they age, the harsh marine environment and the lack of TLC can take their toll. Here is a good video and report that can quickly bring you up to speed as to what you need to check. More...
