When you think of a world-class long-distance cruising yacht, you may not at first think of an express cruiser. But the Cruisers Yachts 520 is an outstanding example of an express style that provides it all. Designed with open spaces and different venues for entertaining large groups of friends, Cruisers 520 is well executed. The 520 Express boasts luxurious accommodations for live-aboard cruising and spacious layout for entertaining in elegance. In addition to her good looks, this cruiser also delivers a speedy ride.
Low hour Cruisers Yachts powered by twin DIESEL VOLVO D12's. All the features you want including hydraulic swim platform, lots of cockpit seating, cockpit wetbar with grill, camper top, sunpad, 2 heads, washer and dryer, and all all the electronics. A world class yacht!
The new express is simply about two things; entertaining in absolute elegance, and getting to a destination quickly. And the cockpit brings the two together with immense amounts of seating under an optional fiberglass hard-top. The two tiered, winged top looks like it was shaped by an artist, and employs skylights to add filtered light and fresh air to the giant cockpit.
The entertainment potential of the outdoor party patio is amazing. Located to port is a refrigerator console with ice maker and freezer, where you can keep your steaks and lobster. Good thing, because right next to the fridge, is an electric grill to cook the surf and turf. There is also a sink and faucet for clean up joined by a cabinet with space for liquor bottles and a host of other accoutrements.
At the Control Station
Cruisers Yachts has gone all out in comfort and plush seating at the helm. They mounted a pair of admiral style chairs, complete with flip-up bolsters and winged armrests within reach of an enormous dash panel. Unfortunately, it is occupied by a pair of small digital readouts for the engine management system. I love the technology, but the small display made piloting a bit difficult, especially with the glare on a sunny day. Alternatively, all this space leaves room for a host of electronic navigation screens.
A sliding acrylic door leads you to the ultra luxurious saloon which provides 6 feet, 6 inches of headroom and is awash in cherry wood cabinetry and trim. Located to port is one of the finest galleys we’ve seen. It is complete with all the chef’s basic needs, plus a dishwasher, trash compactor and a refrigerated wine locker. The chef can also keep up on the latest news or sporting events with the giant 30 inch flat panel LCD TV that is flush mounted in the cabinets.
Seating in the cabin is supplied by an uncompromising sofa that spans the saloon’s starboard side. The crescent shaped lounge is wrapped in ultra-leather and features reclining seats and a convertible dining table for a multitude of functional lounging.
All the way aft in the boat the master stateroom offers unparalleled space and comfort. Filling the room with light are six large port holes that are reminiscent of European mega yachts. A queen-sized berth is beautifully presented and accompanied by a large number of storage cabinets. An en-suite head compartment and separate shower stall complete the owner’s stunning cabin.
The guest stateroom is located at the forepeak and is available with two different layouts. Our test boat had a single queen berth, but you can opt for a pair of twin berths depending upon your cruising needs. There is a day head located forward in the saloon and provides a second door for access from the guest cabin.
Compared to other boats in this class the 520 Express delivered slightly better top end and cruise speed numbers. Where this boat truly stands out from the rest is with its fantastic styling, amenities and outstanding build quality.
