Vessel Walkthrough

Entering the 500 Express from the large swim platform, there is nice seating to hang out and have a cool beverage. Entering the massive cockpit, you see plenty of seating and tons of room. The hardtop offers a full enclosure to keep the AC-cooled cockpit comfortable for entertaining during hot summer nights. Going down below a few steps puts you in a very spacious salon. To port is the galley and to starboard is a long flowing sofa. Heading aft is the master stateroom with a queen berth and a head with a shower. Forward from the salon area is the VIP stateroom with a center-line queen berth and a head with a shower.
