Looking for a boat that can do just about everything? Look no further than these fun, versatile cruisers.
A boat can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people, but for many, boating mainly means family fun. Load up the kids, grab the wife, strap a doggie life vest on Fido, and away you go, master of your own ship. For a versatile vessel that can accommodate the whole crew, you’ve got to check out this batch of express cruisers, which are at the top of their class for fun, luxury, and performance.
Whether you want a roomy layout with the bonus of a nice turn of speed like the Princess V72, a slick, statement-maker like the Riva Virtus (shown here),or something a little bit easier to handle such as the Atlantis 38, this class of boat has it all. They’ve got enough power to give dad a thrill, enough amenities and cabin space to make mom at home, and their sizable outdoor area is perfect for the kids. Oh, and if you’re not in family mode at the moment, these boats also make for great places to entertain, since they often have social spaces indoors, aft on the cockpit, and also on the bow. And on a warm day, you won’t have any trouble filling all those spaces.
