Cruisers Yachts Announces 38 GLS

CONTO, WI (June 19, 2019) – Cruisers Yachts continues to push the boundaries of versatility with their new 38 GLS. The 38 GLS perfectly packages a bow rider and outboards with the big boat craftsmanship you expect from the Cantius line.

The open-concept cockpit was designed with entertainment in mind. You can find endless seating options between the bow lounge, two mid-ship L-shaped dinettes, and an aft-facing bench. For alternative seating options, the aft-facing bench backrest can swivel to face the beach door. The galley features a fiberglass inlay sink, refer, bottle storage, and optional grill. Continue the conversation while sitting on swivel bar stools at the raised wet bar. For comfort, there is an opening sunroof along with an optional foredeck and aft deck shade to keep your guests out of the hot sun.

The lower cabin features an aft stateroom with deep shelf storage. For additional sleeping quarters, the U-shaped dinette converts into a comfortable berth. A galley, full head, and optional flat screen TV complete this extraordinary accommodations level.
