Monterey 360SC

Monterey 360 Sport Coupe

If you missed the Monterey 360 Sport Coupe at the 2014 Fort Lauderdale Show where it made its official debut, make sure you see it at your local dealer. Perhaps the most interesting design element on this 37’10”-long family cruiser is the patent-pending electronic windshield that slides open (70″) to allow passengers direct access to the foredeck from the cockpit. You can also slide the windshield open just a few inches to bring a gentle breeze into the cockpit. Designed by Monterey and Michael Peters Yacht Design, the 360SC boasts other cool features, including two electric helm chairs with flip-back bolsters that allow the couple at the driving station to turn and face guests in the cockpit when the hook is down. A great entertainer, the 360SC is offered with plenty of seating, a wetbar, an optional grill, home theater system and satellite-ready stereo. The cabin sleeps four in the V-berth and mid-cabin. montereyboats.com
