Overview of Cruisers 296 Avanti Vee


This 1985 Cruisers 296 Avanti Vee may be around 30 years old, but her owner has taken great care of this vessel.

Walking aboard, you will only begin to see the care that has been put into this cruiser. First, a telescoping swim ladder sits on the swim deck. Inside the cockpit is a transom shower, new carpet and the helm, which is equipped with a depth-sounder, fish finder, compass, and Lowrance 5200c GPS. All of this is under a bimini top with a full enclosure.

The cabin is in immaculate condition with no lack of care, either. The dinette and head sit on the starboard side of the vessel. It is an electric head with a shower and macerator. The port side furnishes a microwave, fridge, cooktop, and sink. At the bow is the v-berth.

Powering this vessel are twin Crusader 270 engines that have been rebuilt including the install of electronic ignition. Since the rebuild, only 97 hours have been put on the motors! Also in the engine compartment is a 1750 watt inverter, Halon system, and battery charger.
