2006 Meridian 408 Motoryacht


This is, in our opinion, one of the best optioned 2006 Meridian 408 Motoryachts available on the market. She is a very well-designed motoryacht with an abundance of natural light and an open, airy layout that can accommodate a large gathering of friends or can be reserved just for the owners to enjoy the quiet ambiance of the living space. She cruises as comfortably on plane (best option around 15 knots 2300 rpm) or at a slower efficient cruise rate of 9 knots at around 1500 rpm.   She can be easily managed by two persons for docking or locking up/down and is easily maneuvered with the controls and throttles. The DOC (Docking on Command) system comes in handy for tight spaces and precise maneuvering.

Her sweeping lines are distinctly pleasing to the eye, with lots of windows allowing an abundance of natural light in the living areas. Her exterior is in excellent condition with lots of lustre in the gelcoat finish. There are eight mounted cleats that are well located for docking and/or locking up/down. The extensive stainless steel rail systems provide security for safely walking from the front to the back of the yacht on non-slip surfaces.

Her transom has an exterior shower and washdown stations are conveniently located at the front and rear of the yacht. An AM/FM satellite receiver, two outside controls, and external speakers allows for all of the music that you could ever want while travelling or at the dock.

Her full-beam design provides much more internal space than most comparable sized motor yachts. Her two stateroom design is ideal for two couples, with the option of utilizing the main cabin for a third couple. Both forward and aft staterooms have en-suite full bathroom facilities with the forward cabin sharing the bathroom with the main salon. The internal finishes are outstanding with high quality cherry panels throughout, granite counters, and leather seating. There is an abundance of entertainment equipment that includes TVs, radios, a satellite receiver, and DVD players. Her kitchen is well laid out with all of the required appliances.

She is a highly optioned motor yacht that comes with  central vacuum system making her more sustainable for longer trips. All facilities can be run on the high-output generator in the event of a lack of shore power or for offshore cruising.

Her diesel engines make her efficient, producing a much higher cruising range. She has very low hours (425) on her twin diesel engines with all the mechanical trimmings available. The three hatch flooring system in the main cabin allows easy access to the engines and mechanical systems. Her Onan 11.5 KW generator has currently 97 hours of use..
