This Meridian is in TOP condition. The Meridian 490 is one of the most user friendly models on the water. Dual stations make cruising a pleasure in good and bad weather. The vessel is one of the easiest to single hand or cruise with minimal crew. Yet, you could comfortably take 20 or more guests for a bay cruise. I have personally taken more than 20 guests in comfort. The ergonomics in the Meridian 490 allow guests multiple routes from deck to deck. This very conscientious owner has used this boat regularly under very good conditions. Maintenance has been professionally performed as recommended. Seller has picked out his next boat and is ready to move up.

Stainless rails surround the flybridge. There is comfortable L shaped seating with storage under and a fixed table. A Haier freezer is mounted aft of the flybridge seating. When the dinghy is in the water, the boat deck makes an excellent area for lounging in the sun.

The accommodations on the 490 are unique. There are 3 private sleeping areas. The Master is forward. It has a double berth with storage below. The hanging lockers are cedar lined. There is an ensuite head that would be the envy of a much larger yacht. The enclosed shower/tub is large for a vessel this size. The head has a freshwater vacuflush toilet. The master has a TV and stereo.
The master can be enlarged to include a large dressing area with bench seat OR this area can be separated into a 3rd stateroom with private entry doors and the bench becomes 2 large bunk berths.
In the companionway is a Combomatic washer dryer.
Further aft is the Guest stateroom. It has a double berth with storage beneath. Across the hall is the second head with enclosed shower and vacuflush toilet. This head is near the salon and galley. It serves as the day head for guests.
