Cabin cruisers can be a lot of fun for just a day on the water or the whole weekend. Typically any of the 25 – 45’ cruisers offer all the essentials of home, including a galley (kitchen), head (toilet), and multiple berths (sleeping accommodations) to accommodate a family or friends. Almost all of them have air conditioning and/or heating, fresh water tank, hot water to shower or do the dishes. Electrical power is provided by shore power or by generator. Some generators come with the boat but if one doesn’t there are plenty of generators that you can use to provide the power you need. One nice thing about a cruiser is its size and deep V bottom that gives a comfortable ride in a variety of conditions.
Cabin cruisers can offer many different types outdoor fun. You don’t have to just enjoy your favorite lake you can also weekend getaways to different locations by traveling up and sown the coast or a river tour to see different areas. When you do this the boat offers all the amenities of home and you don’t need to stay at a hotel just stay on your boat. The boat is large enough to bring family or some friends to enjoy being on the water.
Cruisers use Sterndrivepower and is the most common for a cabin cruiser and depending on the boat’s size there is a good chance you will have 2 but there are a lot out there with only 1. Sterndrives combine propeller and rudder in one unit to provide easily controlled, directional thrust.
So the question still is do I buy a cruiser or a different type of boat. A cabin cruiser can pull a tube but will use some fuel when it does. But if you your looking for a boat to be able to spend the whole weekend on and bring some friends along as well then a cruiser is a good choice for you.
