Major Price reduction, priced well below market, the owner wants the boat sold!
What a difference a day makes especially if that day is spent on the water, relaxing with friends or family. That simple truth is behind most of the recreational boat design and construction in North America. Plenty of boaters enjoy overnight and liveaboard cruising but many more rarely sleep on board. A few of those folks, though, still want all the conveniences that cruisers take for granted. However, boaters who fall into that category dont want to give up any on-board space to cruising facilities they will rarely or never use. For them, Larson builds the Cabrio 370 Day Cruiser. New for 2008, its a version of the companys current 36 foot, 11 inch (11.3 m) 370 express cruiser redesigned and built for no compromise on-board entertainment and crowd handling. Built on the existing Cabrio 370 hull, the Day Cruiser offers wellproven performance. Its also got sleek good looks, with coloured hull topsides and a sweeping sheerline. Visually and structurally, the Day Cruiser and 370 are similar. But the Day Cruisers accommodations, options and layout are unique. At 13 feet, 3 inches (3.96 m), the beam of the Cabrio 370 Day Cruiser provides the room needed to contain a spacious and comfortable cockpit. Laid out with a twin helm seat, a curvy settee in the companion position and a Jshaped dinette-style seating area aft to starboard, its a great outdoor entertainment area. When the party is in the cockpit, there are two conversation areas: one around the helm and companion seats and the other at the aft settee and table. A transom door aft to port offers easy access to the swim platform and moulded-in steps on the dashboard area located between the companionway door and helm area lead up to an opening windscreen and on to the foredeck. The Day Cruiser shares the cockpit layout of its cruising sibling, but raises the ante. In the cockpit itself, theres a port-side refreshment centre that comes with a wet bar, blender and built-in fridge. Forward, there are two loungers on the deck, with sturdy stainless-steel framing and thick, striped cushions. Aft, the transom door opens to a moulded-in swim platform that steps down to a vast extended swim deck. Flexteak, which adds the look of the real thing without the maintenance headaches, is standard on the Day Cruisers cockpit, swim platform and foredeck. The engine room, easily accessed under the aft cockpit floor, houses twin 370 hp Mercruser 8.1 Gi V8 gasoline engines linked to V-drives. In terms of design and construction, the boats 22-degree deadrise hull is sure to provide handling and seakeeping that will deliver comfort and inspire confidence. An eight-speaker AM/FM CD player with a couple of remotes, a multimedia package and 32-inch flatscreen TV will keep visitors entertained. A standard 7.3-kW Kohler generator ensures the boat can keep rocking far from shore power. The boats interior accommodations, though, are what really put it in a class of its own. Belowdecks, the Cabrio 370 Day Cruiser shows its real stripes as a nighttime party animal. The cabin is one huge, welcoming space, with long elliptical portlights at seated eye-level. More light streams in from overhead hatches. Forward, where a forecabin and master suite might normally be found, theres a round wooden table surrounded by a Jshaped settee. The forward area will accommodate four for high-style dining and eight for a more casual meal or beverages. Aft, tucked in what might otherwise be a mid-cabin space, is a U-shaped settee comfortable seating for at least four more. To port, theres a functional galley, complete with a built-in 24-bottle U-Line wine cooler. The head is aft to starboard and has a designer, glass bowl sink, Sealand Vacuflush head and handheld shower. The fabrics and materials meld style and practicality. Cabinetry of African limba wood and alder, including the forward table that can be raised or lowered electrically, combine with durable cherry and holly woodgrain Flexteak floors and easy-clean vinyl headliner. The seating is comfortable yet durable suede-like fabric. With compass-design accents on the table and an overhead wooden accent piece, the dor is decidedly nautical, but still sleek and modern. Despite its dedication to entertainment, the 370 Day Cruiser also recognizes partygoers may decide to overnight onboard. With that in mind, the forward table lowers at the flip of a switch and cushions quickly convert it into an enormous berth. The midcabin lounging area also converts to a full-size berth. A day on the water always makes a difference. Evening attitude-adjustment works wonders. But even party animals eventually need to rest.
