The Cruisers 54 Cantius is a first-class 53.7-foot express cruiser debuted by renowned Wisconsin-based yacht firm Cruisers Yachts in 2016. Still in production today, this vessel was made to fill the gap between the brand’s 48-foot and 60-foot models among their much-loved Cantius range. Sleek, smooth, and glamorous, the 54 Cantius features an aggressive profile to match its supercharged Volvo IPS engines, perfect for accomplishing tricky maneuvers with grace and ease. Split across two levels with a sumptuous main deck built for indoor-outdoor living and three sumptuous staterooms below, owners can also opt for a flybridge if more open space is desired. SI Yachts has expertise and factory-training with Cruisers Yachts and can assist you in finding the perfect brokerage vessel.
An enormous 5-by-16-foot swim platform provides the perfect perch for seabathing, with a hydraulic lift that doubles as a tender launcher and a teak beach. A large transom garage offers ample storage space with LED lighting and freshwater washdown. Two slightly curved stairways on either side lead up to the commodious aft cockpit, which features a stunning transom dinette with wraparound seating for up to ten guests and cupholders on each end of the table. With the kitchen located aft on the main deck, this spot is perfect for al fresco meals. A wetbar, Sony TV/DVD, and a high-spec electric grill provide near-endless options for entertainment. Out on the bow, owners and guests can settle in on two plush sunlounges with adjustable backrests, taking in the sunset, distant skylines, or simply the majesty of the deep blue sea.
Upon entering the salon, guests will be greeted by a sleek, modern galley replete with all the amenities of any dream kitchen. Make use of the microwave, dishwasher, icemaker, oven, cooktop, or two basin sinks as you admire the sea from the unique geometric windows. Opening out onto the aft deck, this space invites free-flowing conversation between guests and the chef. A loveseat to starboard provides a comfortable seat for weary travelers, while a forward dinette is perfect for intimate indoor meals beneath a large, serene skylight. Here, guests can interact with the captain at the starboard helm, which features digital throttles, Volvo joystick controlling, and plenty of room for your choice of devices, such as two large Raymarine multi-function displays. A wraparound windscreen provides excellent visibility and stunning views.
Below deck, owners and guests alike will enjoy peerless comfort across three gorgeous staterooms. Found aft, the full-beam owner’s suite is the perfect private getaway. Expansive hull windows on either side invite streams of sedate natural light that enhance the open, airy design of this space. A walkaround island berth sits against a unique, sophisticated headboard with discreet endtables on either. A café table is situated to starboard beneath one of the windows, perfect for enjoying a private espresso in the morning. To port, a large vanity provides plenty of space to spruce yourself up before dinner. An en suite bathroom features tasteful lighting, a wide mirror, and light wood accents that contrast with tastefully dark cabinets and a gleaming white countertop. A separate full-standing shower will allow you to wash away the day’s worries in style.
Tucked to port of the companionway, you’ll find a cozy guest room with two twin bunks, perfect for kids and unexpected guests. The VIP room is located forward, and is worthy of the name, despite with a walkaround queen bed and panoramic windows that impart a spacious, airy feel. To maximize space, the head and separate shower are split to starboard and port respectively.
On the flybridge version of this yacht, guests can enjoy a third level with a large wraparound dinette aft, to starboard helm station, and a J-shaped seating area forward and to port with its own foldig table – all beneath a sheltering hardtop with a retractable awning.
The Cantius 54 is powered by two state-of-the-art 725hp Volvo IPS engines and is equipped with a standard SeaKeeper gyrostabilizer, an innovative motion control system for seasoned captains and novices alike.
