Whether planning your bucket-list trip along the Great Loop or looking to entertain your friends on a vacation in the islands, owning a cruising yacht opens up a new world of possibilities. Cruising is among the most popular of boating activities and the different adaptations of how they are used have driven innovation in a number of different ways. From better efficiency for long-distance trips, to unique construction methods that allow for more spacious interiors, there are many different styles of cruising boats built today. If you're considering purchasing a cruising boat, having a conversation with a professional yacht broker about your boating plans, your budget, your cabin needs, and what equipment might be essential will make a world of difference in your search.

There are many styles of cruising boats that have been designed and modified for different types of boating. For example, boaters that want to travel for long-distances over many nights will want to look for a vessel that has fuel-efficient engines, redundant systems, and enough storage space to adequately contain your supplies. Volvo has been the engine of choice for many cruising boat builders because of their commitment to fuel efficiency and reduced noise vibration. Below is the Pardo Endurance 60 which is an interesting mix between luxury motor yacht and efficient long range cruising boat.
Cruising boats sometimes feature a flybridge, as well. Most long-distance cruising boats and luxury motor yachts that are used for cruising have a flybridge. This area is perfect for entertaining and provides excellent visibility when captaining the vessel from the upper bridge.
Luxury cruising yachts like an Azimut or Ferretti focus more on entertaining areas and accommodations. Characteristics like elegant outdoor dining areas, plus cabins with lots of windows, and a cockpit area for socializing are generally found on most cruising yachts.
