Luxurious accomodations and aggressive styling have helped make the Cruisers Yachts 520 Express a standout in the crowded express market. Built on a modified-V hull with a solid fiberglass bottom, the twin-stateroom floorplan of the 520 offers the comforts of a small motor yacht. 

This 2006 Cruisers Yachts 520 Express features powerful and reliable Twin Volvo 715 HP D-12 Diesels and only 798 original hours. This world class Yacht allows for entertaining in absolute elegance but when there are places to go and people to see – it is all about getting there safely, comfortably and quickly. 

The cockpit brings the two requirements together with immense amounts of seating under an optional fiberglass hard-top. The two tiered, winged top looks like it was shaped by an artist, and employs skylights to add filtered light and fresh air to the giant cockpit.  An outdoor grill and refrigeration mean that meals al fresco are mere steps away.

The helm is sensibly laid out and very ergonomic.  Two adjustable heavily cushioned helm seats mean your piloting is going to be in comfort and style.

A sliding acrylic door leads you to the ultra luxurious salon which provides 6 feet, 6 inches of headroom and is awash in cherry wood cabinetry and trim. Located to port is one of the finest galleys you'll see. It is complete with all the chefs basic and not so basic needs, Seating in the cabin is supplied by an uncompromising sofa that spans the saloons starboard side. The crescent shaped lounge is wrapped in ultra-leather and features reclining seats and a convertible dining table for a multitude of functional lounging.

All the way aft in the boat the master stateroom offers unparalleled space and comfort. Filling the room with light are six large port holes that are reminiscent of some of the finest European yachts. A queen-sized berth is beautifully presented and accompanied by a large number of storage cabinets. This model has the desirable additional sofa seating aft.  An en-suite head compartment and separate shower stall complete the owners stunning cabin.  The guest stateroom is located at the forepeak and has a single queen berth. There is a day head located forward in the salon and provides a second door for access from the guest cabin.

Don't forget your toys, as this 520 Express features a transom concealed davit to pick up and transport them with ease.

When comparing similar yachts – it is often the unseen care that a vessel receives that truly distinguishes them from the pack.  This exceptional example of one of the most popular boats in its size range has been maintained by a NY Maritime graduate and instructor with an engineering / mechanical background who has maintained all vessel systems and equipment to near commercial standards.  The engine room speaks for itself as it sees constant care. 

To complement the systems – the boat’s aesthetics are also of a very high order for the vintage and will compare well among others in its class.  Unlike the overwhelming number of the 520 Expresses this white hull retains its easy-care lustre as it is in timeless classic white.  Nearly all other boats of this vintage have colored hull sides that are oxidized and only maintain lustre for weeks or a few months at a time between needing more compounding and in most cases a new paint job.

It is unlikely that there will be a better buy than this vessel in her class.  Call to make an appointment to consider your first real yacht and your next ride.
