Cruisers Yachts Description

The Cruisers 540 Express is an offshore thoroughbred, with the performance, handling, accommodations and storage necessary for long-term cruising.

The above deck configuration includes: a walk-around helm area that gives the pilot and co-pilot easy helm access; generous horseshoe seating aft that can be electrically converted to a spacious sunlounge; an aft deck / platform seating area; a wet bar with refrigerator / icemaker for onboard entertaining and plenty of storage for water toys.

The airy interior of the 540 Express is aglow with the warmth of cherry wood and exquisite detailing. The two-stateroom layout features a forward stateroom with large island berth and an amidships master stateroom, which boasts a large island berth and a walk-in, cedar-lined closet.

The 540 features a galley equipped with a large refrigerator / freezer with icemaker, a double sink, an electric three-burner stove, a microwave / convection oven with exhaust fan and a coffee maker. The 540 provides a large, crescent-shaped dinette with an electric lift dinette table that stows under the floor and raises automatically for use. Forward of the galley to port, she also offers bar-style seating for informal dining. The forward head offers secondary access from the forward stateroom. The aft head, located to starboard aft of the dinette, serves as the master head, with private access.
