The Cruiser Yachts 350 Express offers the ultimate in motor yachting performance, with a sleek and attractive hull design matched only by her exceptional interior finish the Cruiser Yachts 350 Express is a sight to behold.
On deck the boat has hard top radar arch with a soft canvas cover ensuring a water proof cover to protect the social deck area from the elements.
When not in the water this yacht is stored ashore in a secure and dry area to ensure that she is kept in top condition ready for the next season.
Viewings can be arranged with notice and are highly recommended.
The boat is in excellent condition and very well equipped. Little used since new. It has been in water during 5 seasons only. Our boating season is normally from 3to 5 months during summer and the boat has been kept indoors in a warm warehouse during winter periods so the boat is in excellent condition through out. Engines and all on-board equipment has always been serviced for each season.
The model of this Cruisers Yacht is Express 330 in the books. Cruisers renamed this later and call it 350. Both 330 and 350 models share the same hull and specs, so when you want to dig more information about this yacht you may also want to check 350 which is the same as this 2008 Express 330.
Since the boat has been used entirely on Finnish coast it has no corrosion mainly because the seawater has extremely low amount of salt and is very little corrosive compared to Mediterranean or Atlantic salty waters. You can also appreciate the fact that this boat has been kept inside for most of the year so there are hardly any defects on outside surfaces or soft-top and side/aft curtains that are normally fainted over the years due to Sun exposure.
Both main engines have about 260 hours (262 and 264) and the generator 36 hours. All engines have been maintained annually using only high quality service parts (Volvo / Yanmar) and liquids. Both Volvo engines have EVC electronic vessel control system. Highly efficient, powerful and economical engines.
Both common rail diesel engines have compressor / turbo combination for higher performance and torque. These Volvo engines with DP drive systems give excellent fuel economy. The best in it’s class.
New Express 350 with similar specification and options costs roughly around 485.000 USD, that’s about 433.000 EUR Ex-Works. When imported to EU the price exceeds easily 525.000 to 550.000 EUR due to the import costs, customs and VAT. Due to our changed future plans we have priced her for a fast sale. Please ask us or our broker for the best offer. Excellent value for money and truly a magnificent yacht.
Cruiser’s build quality is certainly among the very best within the industry. High quality components and attention to every detail along with superior craftsmanship makes her quite special indeed. What really makes a difference is her ride quality which is simply unmatched in her class. Cruisers has been able to create a boat with superior performance and sport boat handling yet making her extremely economical. Heavy displacement of 8 tons gives a smooth and comfortable ride.
We normally cruise at 30 knots, but burn only 2,4 liter of diesel per nautical mile!! That’s only 1,2 liter per engine per nautical mile. This is with 4persons on board with their gear and full tanks of fuel and water. Half tanks and 2 on board at 31 knots we are able to cruise with just 2,2 liter per nautical mile. With full tanks and 6 on board plus gear at 29 knots we burn 2,6 in total per nautical mile. This is exceptional economy thanksto the latest Volvo-Penta engine technology and Cruiser’s sleek and efficient lines. This keeps the running costs at very reasonable level indeed.
This boat was built as CE certified vessel at the factory and imported to Finland by the manufacturer. All on-board equipment and the boat itself meet European CE standards. All is built to meet also much higher American boat building standards. CY’s over 100 years of boatbuilding experience clearly shows in the build quality. Finishing and attention to detail goes all the way even to the places what the eye can’t see. This is one of the trademarks of Cruisers Yachts and separates it from many European and American boat manufacturers. This partly explains the higher purchase price of these yachts.
You and all your loved ones are cordially invited to lead double lives aboard the incredible 350 Express. Because the surprising 350 is actually two yachts in one. It's engineered for the swift acceleration and nimble handling of a pulse-quickening performance boat. And yet it provides a number of lavish features and extras you'll only find in much larger yachts. Two exciting lifestyles in one model.
Factory made a modification to their normal interior design and created a fully enclosed forward stateroom. This is very convenient modification allowing full privacy in the forward stateroom. It also looks very nice and creates a feeling of a larger yacht. The bulkhead is made with good sound insulation. The door is made using matching walnut with high gloss finish and polished stainless steel hardware.
A wine and liquor cabinet was created in the galley. This replaces the flat screen TV originally mounted in this cabinet. In our boat TV is now located in the aft stateroom with swivel arm so that it can both be viewed in the aft cabin or then turned to face the dinette and galley. Very convenient modification. Apple TV and Wlan router was added to have Wifi onboard. The primary TV is coupled with the onboard entertainment system to enhance the sound quality. LG flat screen TV has HD and is DVB-T2/C compatible.
Second flat screen TV was mounted in the cockpit. Same or different programs can be displayed simultaneously using these screens. The TV system has both digital and analog inputs so it is compatible also in countries that do not yet have full digital TV-network. The TV antenna covers 360 degrees and has a powerful amplifier unit with it’s own control panel.
The original bow rail design was changed to our specifications. It is now an open design to allow better access to and from the boat when faced bow forward towards the pier or to the shore. This is sometimes more convenient than reversing the boat to the pier. We find that bow forward gives more privacy in marinas since the cockpit faces away from the pier. Strong, retractable and foldable ladder makes it easy to get on and off. The ladder is stored in the stern locker. At the same time the search light was taken out from the bow rail and moved down. A special stainless steel post was made for the light.
Late 2013 we added a Mase 5.0 Yanmar diesel Super Silent fully enclosed generator. This generator has 5.0 kW power rating. Generator is inside a soundproof box which is mounted in the engine room. Super Silent Kit separates the exhaust cooling water from gases and allows it to flow outside the boat quietly through a separate outlet. Generator’s control panel is located in the cockpit by the wet bar for ease of use. Generator has it’s own Optima Marine battery and is coupled with 12V charger system.
Early 2014 we made modifications to helm station. The original dual helm seat was taken out and commercial vessel type fully adjustable suspension seat with lumbar support, armrests and seat heating was installed. The seat also swivels 90 degrees to allow better use of the seat when at anchor. The seat is now fully adjustable and extremely comfortable. Works beautifully with VOLVO’s tilt steering wheel. Very easy to find ergonomic and comfortable adjustment for different size helmsmen. Since the seat takes now less space than the original one we added an extra locker where life vests and other safety equipment are stored. On the window side of the seat we added a box where extra charts and manuals can be kept within easy reach when on the move.
In 2014 we also changed the cockpit tabletop from the original to full teak table with deco. The table is both height and angle adjustable. It can also be removed if needed.
More powerful gas struts to support engine room hatch were installed also in 2014. Added weight of the new table required extra power from the struts. Now hatch opens with very little force and is easy to use. We wanted to keep the hatch all manual for reliability and fast access. Electrically opened hatches can be unreliable and they do not open quickly if needed. Manual one always works and is fast to open in case of emergency.
Custom built heavy duty trailer was made for her in 2013. With this trailer we can easily move her from the docks to our warehouse for winter storage. The trailer’s dual axles are heavy duty with high load capacity tires. The trailer was designed especially for this boat and built by one of the best workshops in our area. The cost of building this trailer was over 13,000 EUR.
