This provides fun cooking in the galley while entertaining friends in the salon. Her 2-stateroom layout offers both VIP forward and Master stateroom aft both with full queen berths and heads. She will make the perfect condo on the water and a fine coastal cruising yacht.

The 500 Cockpit also has a phenomenal deck layout. There are molded steps lead down to the functional cockpit with direct access to the master stateroom and a walk-thru transom door with an oversized integral swim platform. Topside the Flybridge is comfortably arranged and provides plenty of seating around the helm console. Additional features include wing doors to wide side decks, and easily accessed engine room.
