The irony of yachting is the unbridled freedom of the water in a boat that can feel confining. Not so in the majestic 455 Express Motoryacht. Featuring three full staterooms with large berths, and an expansive salon with larger windows to immerse you in natural light. It even offers a full bathtub. It’s all the grand freedom and space you need, and finally enough to make you fall in love with boating all over again.

Introduced in 2004, the 455 is an updated version of the original 4450. Built on a fully cored hull the 455 is a beautiful yacht with an unprecedented design and layout. The 455 has tiered cabin windows and a restyled hardtop that add much to her rakish personality. Below decks, the three stateroom cherry wood interior is a departure from most aft cabin floor plans in that the salon, galley, and dinette are all on the same level. The forward stateroom, with a walk-in closet, is nearly as large as the owner’s suite. Note the owner’s suite head has a whirlpool tub! Topside, the tiered helm and cockpit area keeps the captain and passengers in close proximity. Helm visibility is excellent, the side decks are wide enough to offer easy access to the foredeck and the innovative swim platform has two self-draining built-in storage areas.

Cruisers Yachts did it right with the 455. The beautiful modern lines, natural light, and the beautiful cherry interior woodwork make you feel like you are on a much larger yacht. Outfitted for cruising and the Great Loop, the owners have now changed their plans and offer the 455 for sale.

Manufacturer Description

The Cruisers 455 Express Motoryacht is the big sister of the popular 405 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 with wing doors and full weather enclosure.

Below, the 455 Express Motoryacht will delight owners and guests alike. Behind that deceptively express exterior lies a true aft cabin interior. The bright, airy salon offers a large convertible dinette, comfortable L-shaped sofa with double recliners and a superb view all around. 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 a corner queen-size bed, generous storage and a large private head with adjoining Jacuzzi bathtub, 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 all the latest electronics. The 455 Express Motoryacht is destined to excite the interest of cruising boaters who want the sleek styling and cockpit layout of an express, and the living comfort and luxury of an aft-cabin motoryacht.


Entering from the swim platform and up a few molded steps along the port side you enter the aft deck. The aft deck is large and offers port and starboard acrylic wing doors. Situated aft is a long settee with storage under the cushions and along the starboard side facing aft is another settee. Removable tables separate them when installed. Along the port side is a wet bar.

Up one step you enter the helm deck with a nice settee along the port side with an aft facing cushion for the mate to relax and comfort. The helm is located along the starboard side and can easily seat two. Visibility from the helm is outstanding and all controls and instruments are within easy reach. The helm and cockpit are covered with a hard top and the areas are fully enclosed with black Sunbrella and Eisenglass.

The entry in the main salon is amidships with a sliding door. Down a few steps you are in the main salon. Immediately to starboard is the galley area with ample storage and appliances certainly to please any discriminating onboard chef. The dinette is forward of the galley on the starboard side and can easily seat six. Along the port side is the settee which offers dual recliners. The entertainment system is above the galley refrigerator and offers complete visibility from anywhere in the salon. Located aft of the salon settee is a cabinet with the electrical panel and storage and entry into the master stateroom.

The master is huge with a queen berth, cedar lined hanging lockers, ample storage drawers and mirrored vanity. The master head offers an entry along the starboard side which opens into the head area and a separate door leading into the shower and Jacuzzi  tub!

Back to the main salon and forward, down a few steps are the guest staterooms. To starboard is a guest stateroom with twin berths, there is a filler cushion to make this into a double. The cabinet in the stateroom has the washer and dryer and there are storage drawers under. Both berths have additional storage beneath the mattress. Across from the guest stateroom is the guest head with a large mirrored vanity and a circular shower stall. All the way forward is the VIP stateroom. Almost as large as the master the VIP features a large cedar-lined walk in closet on the starboard side. Plenty of drawer space and a queen berth.

Engine room access is under the main salon sole with a central opening for easy access.
