The duplicity of the design
The cruiser (sail) boat is a combination of the sailboat and the inboard cruiser boat. LOA on the cruise (sail) boats for sale range between the 25’ and 50’ range, though you may be able to find a few which are larger.
Sailboat qualities on the cruiser sail are evident in the mast and the multiple sail configurations. As the boat is intended for speed as well as for entertainment and socialization, you may find either nylon or Kevlar sails. Typically, the construction of the Cruiser (sail) boats is a single mast. Some Catalinas and Hunter brand boats have dual sails.
Cruiser features on the cruiser (sail) boats are found in the hull and the overall aesthetics of the design. Firstly, the hulls of the cruisers are typically fiberglass construction. Secondly, the cruisers follow the same cabin and stateroom layouts as their respected sports, center console, or cabin cruiser brand offers.
Power and propulsion
Another feature which lends to the versatility and the duality of the design is the power configuration. Primary power and propulsion is gained from the sails and the mast system. However, as the boat does have motor capabilities, there is an increase in the power and performance which is not seen on other sailboats.
Power on the cruiser (sail) boats for sale typically include twin inboard diesel motors. Depending upon the brand that you choose the inboard could be CAT, Vanmar, Raptor, or Yamaha.
Why a Cruiser (sail) boat?
Perhaps the greatest advantage of the cruiser sail boats for sale is that they offer the owner the option of living aboard the vessel. Cruiser sail boats are specifically designed to optimize the interior cabin space. This means that you get larger staterooms, full galley and appliances, larger freshwater storage, and consequently a higher grade of interior design materials integrated into the design.
Because the cruiser is a combination of traditional sailing and modern boating/yachting, the owner can navigate the offshore rougher waters with the inboard, but then take advantage of the tranquility of sailing when the waters are calmer. These boats are a can range in luxuriousness and sophistication, as the available models can date from the 2018 selection as far back as the 80s models.
