General Details

1988 Cruisers 4280 Express Bridge Cruiser is the ultimate all-around boating vessel. It is powered by two Caterpillar 3208 Diesel engines pushing out 375 Hp each. The Powerboat Guide calls this boat "a party barge." The vessel was designed by Jim Wynne who also designed the 36' Hatteras convertible. The unique design has 5-step staircases on either side of the cockpit, allowing for easy access to the fly-bridge and enjoyment for you and all of your guests to maneuver safely around. The upper deck is "flush" from the top of the steps all the way forward to the bow. Entrances to the bridge on both port and starboard sides access seating for a dozen people with a full protective enclosure. From the cockpit, sliding glass doors lead to the cabin. The boat can be operated single-handedly since access to the mid-ship cleat and the bow is only a few steps from the helm. 

Other accommodations below from the stern deck you enter the cabin through sliding glass doors that open up to two steps down that lead into the cabin. Once inside, the cabin is on a single (carpeted) level, the entire length and width of the boat. This makes the living space seem much larger than a 42' boat would normally provide. There is a sleep sofa, teak Hi/Low table, and end table/dresser to starboard. To port, there is an entertainment center and the "U" shaped galley. Moving forward, the 10 cu. ft. refrigerator (with a freezer) is in the companionway. Next, to starboard is the head, featuring a separate stall shower, Raritan Atlantis electric marine toilet, vanity/sink and a cabinet above. To port is the mid-ship cabin with a hanging locker, drawer storage, and a sofa that converts into a double bed. In the bow, the owner's cabin holds a queen size island bed, vanity, hanging lockers, private head entrance, 2 overhead hatches, and personal AC controls.

The bridge enclosure has a full wrap around canvas and just had new Isinglass installed.  Control everything from the bridge and enjoy it with your entire guest party with the extra seating this Cruisers 4280 has to offer.

All maintenance performed on a very strict schedule. This boat is in very good condition and is maintained year round. I have personally been out on this boat and can promise it is very well taken care of.


You and your guests will enjoy everything from interior to exterior this boat has to offer. Weather you’re an angler or a cruiser this Cruisers 4280 provides everything you need to reel in the big fish or just sit back and enjoy a day in the sun. Here is your chance to get a very well maintained Cruisers 4280 at a great price. 

Available for showing by appointment only. Owner will consider all reasonable offers. For further information please contact Jonathan Bond
