New Model: Cruisers 480 Cantius

First announced in the fall of 2008 as the Cruisers 460 Sports Coupe project, the Oconto Wisconsin USA boat builder finally presents this model now 480 Cantius. For those asking about the name to this 48 feet sport cruiser, it is dedicated to Cruisers parent company KCS International Inc founder Cantius Stock. A total new model based on the Volvo IPS pods propulsion, the 480 Cantius has been two years plus in the making, and its hard top design has also been a choice given to Cruisers owners, customers, and friends. This boat stands out for its versatility as an all year round cruiser and being able to close down and become a cozy affair in seconds. This thanks to sliding patio doors, and the electric sunroof. Stand out features are two galleys, very interesting the one on the main deck being astern, three total saloons including the one on the aft deck, full beam mid ship owners suite, and a third shower head. This last a unique feature for a Sport Cruiser of this size. A VIP suite room to fore completes the accommodation layout below decks. Tender stowage is onto a hydraulic up and down moving bathing platform aft. Power is from standard Volvo 375hp or optional 435hp both with IPS pod propulsion, which makes docking a breeze.
