The success of the 60 Cantius, launched for 2016, set a benchmark for design within Cruisers Yachts. So much so they built upon it and developed the 60 Fly, an all-new model, for 2017.

The master stateroom features a king-size bed (you read that right), a small dinette-style settee, walk-in closet and a massive private head with double shower and dual washbasins.

There is a VIP stateroom at the bow and, if you expect lots of guests, you have the option of a third stateroom with bunk beds that convert to a double berth. Otherwise, that space houses a 7-foot long sofa.

The helm comes standard with Raymarine’s Touchscreen Electronics that you can access with an app on your phone.

With the optional SeaKeepergyro-stabilizer you can up the luxuriousness of your ride even in rough seas. Other lavish touches include a full-size washer and dryer, a 17-bottle wine fridge, and the optional crew quarters.

The lazarette has a fully powered hatch and the hydraulic swim platform will surely get a lot of use. Here too you’ll find integrated stairs and solid grab rails to securely get back up to the cockpit after a dip.

Up on the bridge, the helm controls are fully equipped and found in the centre, offering excellent sightlines in all directions. Directly in front is a roomy lounger that is sure to be to be prime real estate while cruising. Slightly narrower, long bench-style loungers flank either side.

Down below on the main level, the cockpit, salon and aft-galley flow together as one, but remain separate zones. Massive windows let natural light flow in and the light, but rich upholstery gives an airy, luxurious feel.

If, somehow, the flybridge, salon, swim platform or the cockpit aren’t providing enough space for you, there’s more! That’s the beauty of a 60-footer. The bow lounge is more aptly referred to as the cabana, featuring dual chaise lounges and a crescent shaped bench settee.

Powered by the reliable Volvo Penta IPS 950 the performance of something as large, lush and luxurious as this is as impressive as the style itself. Planing happens in 16 seconds, which is actually quite fast for a 28-and-a-half ton, 60-foot yacht. Optimal cruise is right around 28 mph (24 knots) and you can run for hundreds of miles at that speed quite comfortably.

You really should check out the video to see it all for yourself!
