Cruisers Yachts, a brand of KCS International, Inc., has introduced their all new 60 Flybridge, featuring enhanced views and more living space. The 2017 model year 60 Flybridge will be unveiled this summer and available at dealerships in the fall.
“The launch of the 60 Flybridge is exciting for us as we once again enter the flybridge segment of the market,” says Matt VanGrunsven, director of marketing at KCS International, Inc. “We are excited to bring this new segment to our customers and dealer network.”
The 60 Flybridge promises more views, more sun, and more of what boaters love about being on the water. It’s another level of entertaining that is more exposed and allows users to embrace nature’s elements while underway.
The flybridge is equipped with a centerline helm station with seating for captain and mate, additional lounge seating forward and U-shaped seating with a table at the aft. The bridge also has a wetbar area. The profile retains its sleek exterior lines and aggressive stance.
The interior features light/dark wood combinations, contrasting materials, and a linear look. In addition to the flybridge, there is no shortage of places to entertain. The cockpit features a large seating area and bar with two stools at the cockpit. A refrigerator, icemaker and grill come standard. Above, a sunshade awning provides protection when needed.
Entertainment is also made seamless – with the cockpit, galley, salon, and helm all on one level. Guests can move easily from outside to inside through the open bulkhead where they are greeted by a portside galley at the center of entertaining. The galley features a refrigerator with freezer, full sink, stovetop, microwave and storage. A dishwasher is optional.
Facing the galley, on the starboard side, is the upper salon. A sofa with seating for three is flanked by end tables with plentiful storage. A 50” flat-screen TV raises when in use and conceals when not. A state-of-the-art sound bar is above. The TV is in easy view of a portside U-shaped dining area. With seating for up to six adults, it’s perfect for dining or cocktails. A hi-lo table serves as a dining table, cocktail table or coffee table. The entire space is open, airy and light-filled thanks to operable windows on each side. A seamless windshield up front completes the 360-degree picturesque views.
Moving to the helm station, the captain and first mate will enjoy STIDD brand chairs. Each features their own arm rests and flip up bolsters. Also at the helm, boaters will find the latest in electronic navigation. Touchscreen technology on electronic monitors easily controls both navigation and digital switching. Electrical systems can also be controlled and monitored by iPad, iPhone and even remotely.
Other technical advancements on board include Bluetooth controlled stereos, Polk audio and three sound bars throughout. Head units are standard in the upper salon and Master stateroom and are optional for the foredeck and secondary stateroom. All music and movies are streamed digitally; there are no CD or DVD players on board.
Moving to the bow, the foredeck is an ideal space for sunning, lounging and entertaining. The foredeck is accessed from the stairs in the cockpit, which lead to port and starboard sidewalks. Bench seating with cup holders can be found at the brow of the foredeck. There are two sun lounge areas with cup holders, a cooler and cocktail table. An optional Bimini awning provides shade when needed.
Finally, the swim platform can be raised with a hydraulic lift to haul a jet ski, tender, or dingy. There is also an optional crew’s quarters available.
Heading downstairs, boaters descend into a lower foyer. This area can also be converted into a third stateroom, if desired. The space is roomy and light with full beam windows on each side. As a foyer, a pair of incliners and space for an optional 50” TV provide another comfortable place for guests. There’s also a wine cabinet, wine glasses, and refrigerator along with a spare closet with the foyer configuration.
The 60 Flybridge features luxurious accommodations. A midship, full-beam Master stateroom comes with a king-size bed. On the port side is a large hanging locker and plentiful storage. The starboard side features a breakfast table with seating for two. A 32” flat-screen TV is standard. Large windows let in generous light not only in the Master stateroom, but throughout the entire accommodations deck. A private Master Head features dual sinks with designer faucets and a large walk-in shower. A secondary suite features a queen-size bed, ample storage space, and a private entrance to a VIP head.
The engine room is easy to access and move about in. The 60 Flybridge is powered by two of Volvo’s latest IPS 2 engines.
