In stock at our Seattle location! Come see for yourself why this boat started the "coupe revolution" in the boating industry.
Imagine the space and function of an aft cabin Motor Yacht in a sleek and fast design with no canvas to worry about! The Cruisers 48 Cantius offers that and much more!
While in the cooler seasons and during cool evenings, the double opening glass Alaskan bulkhead means you are warm and cozy inside while still enjoying a 360 degree view from the upper salon. When the sun comes out, open those glass doors to the cockpit and the huge sunroof to bring the outdoors in, making it more like an open Express boat (and GREAT for entertaining).
Down below, you will find the space and comfort normally associated with aft cabin motoryachts. The two Master staterooms both feature walk-around queen berths and private heads with separate showers. And best of all, they are located at opposite ends of the boat, so you and your guests have maximum privacy. Technically, the aft stateroom is the Master and forward the VIP, but it is hard to tell the difference on this boat! And separating the two staterooms is the lower salon that offers more privacy than the upper salon and features a full galley, big flat screen TV and wrap around ultra-leather sofa that can convert into a third bed.
While this boat may offer the accommodations of an aft cabin motoryacht, she performs more like a sleek performance boat should. Her twin Volvo Diesel IPS power means fast cruise speeds with very economical fuel consumption. With directional thrust, turning this 50 foot boat is FUN and for more responsive than a traditional inboard. And then you get to the dock, you have the luxury of true joystick docking (who would buy a new boat without this?). Just push the joystick in the direction you want to go and the computer does the rest.
We use to say you can't have it all when it comes to boat design, but I think Cruisers has found a fix to that in the 48 Cantius. The living space of an aft cabin motoryacht in a sleek, high performance package that has no canvas and can be totally opened up in nice weather (with NO CANVAS!). WOW! If you want maximum versatility in a very functions package, check out the 48 Cantius before you buy anything else.

Carrying a tender aboard this particular 48 is as easy as it gets with the TNT lift. With the press of a button, the entire swim platform lowers into the water so you can literally drive your dingy right onto the lift. Raise the lift and your dingy hydraulically raises up onto the platform for easy travel.
You will notice when boarding this vessel that the swim platform traverses the full beam of the boat, making it safe and easy to step aboard. This might seem like something you wouldn't even have to think about, but you would be surprised how many manufacturers narrow their swim platforms, making for a very large step to get aboard (something you often don't want to do with kids or groceries in your arms).
A few steps up from the swim platform and you see the first major design feature that makes this boat so great. The well laid out cockpit is separated from the upper salon by three huge glass doors framed in Stainless Steel. In cool or inclement weather, keep those doors closed and you are warm and comfortable in the salon while still maintaining a full 360 degree view. During nice days, open those doors all the way up and the spaces combine to become one while bringing the outdoors in.
In the cockpit, you will find very comfortable U-shaped seating in an upscale Latte color selection along with a very functional cockpit table that includes drink holders. Forward and to port there is a built in BBQ and ice-maker. Under the cockpit seating (accessed from the cockpit OR from the swim platform) is a HUGE amount of storage for fenders, lines and other boating necessities.
Step through the double opening glass doors into the upper salon and you will find the wet bar immediately to your right featuring a pop-up flatscreen TV, sink, refrigerator and plenty of counter space. To Port is a large wrap around ultra-leather seating with high gloss table for guests to enjoy the view in every direction. To stbd and forward of the wet-bar is the helm station with double wide seat (with bolster), joystick controls, electronic steering and engine controls and glass pod station for all your electronics.
When you are ready to settle in for that evening movie, the lower salon offers a little more privacy. Similar to what you would find in a large express cruiser, the lower salon is down 5 stairs from the upper salon and features a full size galley, huge flat screen TV and wrap around sofa that converts into a third sleeping area.
This nice open space also separates the two staterooms and heads, making her an ideal boat for two couples to cruise.
Walking aft from the lower salon through a solid wood door, you find the massive Full Beam Master Stateroom. You can walk all the way around the queen island berth! There is abundant drawer and hanging locker storage and even a washer/dryer for extended cruising. On both sides, you will find large hull side windows to let in lots of light. You will also find the dedicated head with separate shower. And of course there is also a dedicated flat screen TV and entertainment package. This stateroom feels more like what you would normally find on a compatible sized Aft cabin Motor yacht! The size, headroom, storage and dedicated full head are nothing short of spectacular.
Moving forward in the Lower Salon, you go through another solid wood door to the forward (VIP) stateroom. In most boats, this would be considered the master! Queen island walk-around berth, lots of storage, beautiful fixtures and direct access to the split head and shower.
The shower is on the Port side of the vessel and is accessed directly from the forward stateroom, so guests have total privacy and while the shower is in use, the head (on the stbd side of the vessel) is still free for use. The forward head compartment can also be accessed directly from the lower salon, making it functional as the day head too.
For those who aren't familiar with Cruisers Yachts, they are especially known for their outstanding attention to detail in their engine rooms. Everything is clearly labeled, easy to get to and easy to understand. Access to the engine room is via an opening hatch in the cockpit floor. An "out of the way" ladder leads you down into the expansive space. It is very easy to get all the way around both engines and to all machinery. If you want to get a good feel for the quality of any manufacturer, spend some quality time looking around their engine room to see how things are labeled and laid out. In this case, there is no questions why Cruisers has a long time reputation as a very high quality builder.
The 48 Cantius brings a visionary aesthetic to its revolutionary design. Featuring an optional wenge wood interior and integrated double salons that invite conversation and allows the sun to flood the lower salon with its looming radiance. Once you experience the 48 Cantius no other yacht in the world will feel as satisfying.
