Vessel Walkthrough
The 55 Cabrio shares the same hull (and length) of the 56 Hardtop Express Cruiser.  The Cabrio is the latest rendition of the popular Neptunus Express Cruiser Line, offering an air conditioned Wheelhouse and lounge area that flows out to the Aft Deck creating a magnificent entertaining platform. The Main Deck offers abundant seating in a semi circular settee to starboard, cabinets to port and a helm slightly to starboard. Going below the spacious Galley is to port with a large settee to starboard.  The Master is forward with a private head and shower. There are two cabins aft in this custom layout rather than the usual one.  To port is a single berth and to starboard is a double berth VIP.  These two cabins share a spacious head and shower.
Main Deck Area
Walking in from the Aft Deck the teak laid decking continues on the same level for a very open feeling. Immediately to starboard is a C shaped settee to seat five to six people upholstered in a tan Ultra Vinyl with a black vinyl accent.  There is a hi lo cherry table on a custom stainless steel base mounted in front of the settee.  The table has a unique folding edge that makes entry and exit a bit easier.  There is storage below the seating as well as the Main Deck’s AC evaporator.   To the portside are three curved cabinets, one dedicated for a Isotherm stainless steel refrigerator, the others for storage with an Avonite countertop above.  A small lift art panel access the trash can below.  Also in this area is a Bose stereo remote with a link to the Lifestyle 48 stereo below four Bose stereo speakers, digital AC controls, fixed side windows with dark tinted glass, a CO detector, seven stainless steel trimmed overhead light fixtures and a cherry handrail under the portside windows

Going forward from the Salon, through an arched cherry door is the Master Cabin with a centerline queen size pedestal berth with an innerspring mattress.  There are two drawers below the berth as well as rope accent lights.  To both port and starboard are two cherry topped countertops that serve as nightstands.  Above the nightstands is a fixed deadlight behind Duette shades on both the port and starboard sides.  Above the shades are six cherry cabinet doors to port and to starboard.  Aft to port is a cedar lined two door hanging locker.  Next aft is access to the Master Head via an arched cherry doorway.  To starboard is a built in Toshiba 14” LCD TV/DVD combo followed by another cedar lined double door hanging locker with an auto light and a full size dressing mirror mounted on the aft bulkhead.  Also in this cabin are six overhead mini spots, rope lighting behind the valance, Bose stereo speakers, a digital control panel for the AC, a deck hatch over the berth with a sliding screen, shade, and a hatch to access the bow thruster below.   There is also a remote control and link to main Bose Lifestyle 48 music system.
