Cruisers Yachts will introduce its new 34 GLS at the Fort Lauderdale show, starting Oct. 27. The twin-outboard family boat is the first that Cruisers has made since MarineMax bought the 68-year-old Wisconsin company in May.
Cruisers now has 16 models, from 33 to 60 feet. The GLS series is its entertainment-centered line. The new 34 joins a GLS 42 and GLS 38.
The 34 GLS certainly has a social theme. There’s seating for eight in the bow, plus more in the cockpit (with Swiss Army knife-like seats that flip back and forth) and more in the helm deck. And there are sleeping areas for four on the accommodations deck below.
The bow seating area is centered around a removable table that can be converted into a sun pad. An optional shade canopy can be ordered if you want sun protection up there.
The cockpit aft has two seating areas. The seat on the port side has an adjustable backrest. If you flip it into an aft-facing position, it forms a companion seat, perfect for keeping watch on people swimming or enjoying watersports. On the starboard side, a larger aft backrest can be flipped forward to create a comfortable aft-facing sun pad.
The upper galley has a sink, fridge, grill and storage. The helm has Simrad electronics and joystick control for the twin 300-hp Mercury Verado outboards. (Three of them are an option.)
Below, there’s 6-foot, 4-inch standing headroom and a dinette with facing settees and a table that can be converted to a berth. The lower galley has a fridge, microwave and TV. Tucked aft is a sleeping area with a custom-sized berth. The head has a separate shower.
