The Visionarry Cruiser developed from the need of a boat with good performance like Visionarry Sport but with longer trips in mind. The ‘Cruiser’ is the ‘Sport’ with the added comforts of a longer windward hull, extra motor, large airy saloon and a covered cockpit. It also has more hard deck space and a very handy dinghy ramp. The master bedroom is separate, the second cabin houses a queen size berth, and the large galley has a 200 litre fridge/freezer. There is also a generous bathroom with a stand up shower, and a head complete with holding tank. The saloon seats seven at a dining table, and there is a large navigation table with a chart storage locker. Plenty of storage is provided out on the deck with lockers for anchoring gear, mooring lines, fuel, gas bottles etc. Two retracting 15HP outboards push the boat along at 8 knots and provide easy maneuverability in tight situations.
The Cruiser and the Sport models have the same leeward hull, rig, rudders etc. The windward hull on the Cruiser has greater buoyancy to carry the extra weight of cruising.
