Manufacturer's Descriptions

Introduced in the 2000 model year, the 396 Motor Yacht was an overnight success. This aft cabin motor yacht has the aggressive styling of an express cruiser. As well, the 396 has changed the rules concerning aft cabin styling. The unique raised walk deck design has allowed design changes that give the 396 a wider cabin - much roomier than one would expect. Adding to its appeal, the cabin living space has been combined into a spacious, open "great room" with plenty of salon seating and space for all sorts of extra amenities, like an end table, TV and VCR. Two luxurious staterooms and two head compartments provide welcome privacy, with the forward head compartment providing separate head and shower compartments.
