Vessel Walk Through

This Cruisers 455 Motoryacht "Phantasy" is an EXTREMELY well-kept example of the Cruisers 455 Express Motoryacht. The cockpit features the kind of comfortable seating associated with traditional express boats - no separation between bridge and cockpit. A full express-style windshield provides exceptional wind and weather protection, while owners will also enjoy the benefits of the 455's hardtop enclosure, with wing doors on both sides, creating full weather enclosure. Phantasy also had custom installed in 2015 a 13,500 BTU’s hardtop bridge deck AC unit and her cockpit also has a 24,00 BTU heat pump/AC which gives her a year-round cruising capability not found in most other motor yachts!

Her raised aft deck can be accessed from the molded stairs coming off the swim platform or from either side gate. A full fiberglass hardtop with full enclosure plus dedicated bridge reverse cycle air conditioning creates a pleasant environment for extended time at the helm as well as creating an outside living space. The large aft deck includes built in seating much like you would expect in the cockpit area of an express cruiser. The bridge helm and the aft area are socially integrated, separated by only one step. Twin 480 HP Volvo diesels provide dependable power and good performance with a 21-24 knot cruise. A full complement of electronics, plus bow thruster controls are positioned at the helm, and the double helm seat allows you and your mate to enjoy your cruising experience. The owner added a Yacht Controller system for added ease in docking & maneuvering from anywhere on the boat as well as correcting and controlling its position with complete safety. Which is a wireless remote control that allows you to steer the boat using just the engines and bow thruster.

Below, "Phantasy" will delight owners and guests alike. Behind that deceptively express exterior lies a voluminous aft cabin interior. The bright, airy salon offers a large convertible dinette, comfortable L-shaped sofa with double incliners and an incredible view of the water. A fully appointed galley with extra-large refrigerator/freezer makes meal preparation on the water a joy for the most discriminating gourmet. And, keeping the desired mood on board is made simple with the deluxe entertainment center and sound system. The luxurious master suite is located aft. It features an angled queen-size bed, generous storage and a large private head with adjoining jacuzzi tub, which is also accessible through a pair of lovely French doors. The forward stateroom features a queen-size bed, plenty of storage and a walk-in closet; it also includes private access to the main head and shower. To accommodate additional family members or onboard guests, a third stateroom with twin berths is located amidships. With plenty of room at the helm for her very functional electronics and efficient Volvo diesel power. "Phantasy" is destined to excite the interest of cruising boaters who want the sleek styling and cockpit layout of an express, and the live-aboard comfort and luxury of an aft-cabin motor yacht.

"Phantasy" is priced to sell and is ready for a new home! She really has to be seen to appreciate just how clean she is!
