The 55 Cabrio shares the same hull as the older 56 Hardtop Express Cruiser. The defining difference in the two boats is that the Express Cruiser has high gloss cherry wood and a stainless steel entry door on the Main Deck area. The name Cabrio infers the Main Deck of this model, while fully air conditioned, maintains more of an outdoor feel and has sliding clear panels between the interior and the Aft Deck.
The Main Deck offers abundant seating in a semi circular settee, a pop up TV to port and a helm to starboard.
Going below the spacious Galley is to port with a large settee to starboard. The VIP is forward with a private head and shower.
Aft is the Master Stateroom with a walk around queen berth and a private head with a stall shower.
|Main Deck Area|
Walking in from the Aft Deck the teak laid decking continues on the same level for a very open feeling.
Immediately to starboard is a C shaped settee to seat five to six people upholstered in a tan Ultra Vinyl with a navy blue accent. There is a hi lo cherry table on a custom stainless steel base mounted in front of the settee. The table has a unique folding edge that makes entry and exit a bit easier. There is storage below the seating as well as the Main Deck’s AC evaporator.
To the portside are three curved cabinets, one dedicated for a refrigerator/wine cooler, the others for storage with an Avonite countertop above. A Toshiba 22" LCD TV lifts electrically from the counter and hides from view when not in use.
Also in this area is a Bose SA2 stereo with a link to the Lifestyle 48 stereo below four Bose stereo speakers, digital AC controls, fixed side windows with dark tinted glass, a CO detector, an intruder alarm panel, several stainless steel trimmed overhead light fixtures and a cherry handrail under the portside windows.
Next forward is the Helm Area with the wheel slightly to starboard. The wrap around console has a burl wood facia and wrap around upholstered trim to match the seating. Two amply padded helm seats in matching upholstery are aft. Helm equipment includes:

The Salon is to starboard, opposite the Galley. Seating is provided by a C shaped Ultra Leather settee with storage below. A cherry hi lo table with an electrical activation feature is affixed to the cherry sole in front of the settee. Six cherry cabinets flank two fixed deadlights that can be concealed with Roman shades.
Forward is a backlit etched glass panel with two whales, centerline is a large deadlight in the cabin side to match that in the Galley. Aft is a 22" LCD TV mounted to the bulkhead. A five speaker Bose model 191 Surround sound system provides AM/FM/CD/DVD entertainment.
Several halogen mini spots are in the overhead. Digital AC controls provide ease of comfort in this area.
Going forward from the Salon, through an arched cherry door is the VIP Cabin with a centerline queen size pedestal berth. There are two drawers below the berth as well as rope accent lights. To both port and starboard are two burl wood countertops that serve as nightstands. Above the nightstands is a fixed deadlight behind Roman shades on both the port and starboard sides.
Above the shades are five cherry cabinet doors to port and to starboard.
Aft to port is a cedar lined hanging locker with an auto light. Next aft is access to the Forward Head via an arched cherry doorway. To starboard is a built in Toshiba 14" LCD TV/DVD combo followed by another cedar lined hanging locker with an auto light and a full size dressing mirror.
Also in this cabin are four overhead mini spots, rope lighting behind the valance, stereo speakers, a digital control panel for the AC, a deck hatch over the berth and a hatch to access the bow thruster below.
Accessed only from the Forward Cabin is the VIP Head. The bow front cherry vanity has one cabinet below and a China under mount sink in the Avonite countertop above with a single lever faucet. Above are four mirrored medicine cabinet doors, rope lighting behind the valance, a Duette shade in front of a fixed deadlight and a perfectly angled mirror above.
The toilet is an Atlantes electric model from Raritan.
The surprisingly large shower has a clear tempered glass door, a handheld or wall mountable fixture plus a light and an exhaust fan. Two additional halogen mini spots are in the Head area. The sole of the Head is marble and the overhead is mirrored.
The Master Stateroom is aft from the Salon/Galley area and is down two steps. This cabin is greatly expanded from the earlier 56 models and offers accommodations like a similar size Aft Cabin Motoryacht. By moving the Head forward, the Master Cabin now benefits from a full beam layout.
Entering from the forward end there is a queen size tapered berth on centerline. Two drawers and rope lighting around the perimeter are below the berth. An upholstered headboard sits upon an upholstered panel aft of the berth. There are two halogen mini spots as reading lights in the soffit above. To both port and starboard are twin two drawer nightstands with ample counter space. Outboard on both sides are full size hanging lockers with doors facing forward. Next forward on both sides are chests of six cherry drawers with a cherry countertop above.
Two more storage cabinets are on the starboard side just below the "new style" fixed three panel signature Neptunus port light with three more cabinets above. The portside has just the two cabinets below the port light due to the cabin entrance on the deck above.
Also in the Master Cabin are six dimmable overhead halogen mini spots, rope lighting behind the valance, stereo speakers, a hidden safe, a Toshiba 17" LCD TV/DVD combo, digital controls for the AC, a Bose 181 stereo and a CO detector.
Located on the starboard side at the cabin’s forward entry steps is the Master Head.
The bow front cherry vanity has one cabinet door above and a China under mount sink in the Avonite countertop above with a single lever faucet. Above are three mirrored medicine cabinet doors, rope lighting behind the valance, a Duette shade in front of a fixed deadlight and a perfectly angled mirror above.
