The Cruisers 50 GLS OB is a beautiful yacht powered by today’s popular outboard motors and with its deep V hull can handle bumpy seas with ease. GLS is an abbreviation for Grand Luxury Sport, and this model is just that, a Grand Luxury Sport boat that is perfect size for two or three couples or a small family. Cruisers 50 GLS OBWe here at Power Boating Canada took a look at this trendy yacht with triple Mercury 600 hp outboards (optional power) that are mounted recessed into the boat’s stern. An interesting feature of this boat is that the port and starboard gunwales in stern have a unique feature in that they will fold down and outward when the boat is at rest.  Cruisers calls these fold out gunwales “beach doors,” because when they are folded out they form a 20 ft wide by 10 ft long swim platform.

The 50 GLS’s aft cockpit has plush seating for 8 adults plus cup holders and a ton of storage under the seats as well as in the back of the aft seat, and a sun lounge for a passenger to stretch over across the aft seat. This sun pad flips up to reveal two grills for cooking.

The boats galley area is located amidship on the starboard side of the boat opposite the L-shaped seating and beautifully finished teak dining table. Twin grills for cooking are found under the aft sun pad and come as standard equipment on the 50 GLS as is air conditioning and a 16 Kw generator. A long Corian counter top gives owners plenty of space for food preparation, while air conditioning vents in the galley area as well as at the helm help keep everyone cool during those hot summer days when everyone wants to cool down.

The 50 GLS’s power helm seat is one of the largest and most unique we have ever seen and it can be adjusted up and down as well as back and forward with just the push of a button. A dual companion seat is next to the helm seat so 2 more adults can sit adjacent to the helm. With a beautiful padded tilting steering wheel, three large 19 inch Simrad GPS chart plotter screens, and a dozen push button switches adjacent to the steering wheel that control most of the boats functions, there is little left to the imagination on Cruisers 50 ft GLS model.

A moon roof over the helm and galley area opens with the push of a button and two large side windows on the port and starboard side of the boat also power down and up electrically. In addition there are two small wing windows port and starboard in the aft cockpit area that can be opened to provide additional ventilation on a hot day.

The bow area of the Cruisers 50 GLS is spacious with a large plushly padded seating area where up to 8 adults can sit with an adjustable table and cup holders for every person. An electric chiller to hold drinks rests under one of the bow seats, and an electric anchor windless in the peak of the bow.

Below deck in the cabin you will find the master berth in the forward part of the boat while there are twin berths amidship, and these twin berths are convertible into a large single bed with a center filler pad. A full-size head, vanity and shower lies between the two. There is also a refrigerator and microwave down below for waking up and heating up your first cup of coffee or a croissant.

The Cruisers 50 GLS Outboard can be powered up to triple 600 hp Mercury.
