Boat builder news:


Monterey Boats is unveiling the all-new 330 Sport Yacht, the latest edition to the already popular line. An overall length measuring just over 35’ from stem to stern with a swim platform, a wide, comfortable beam of 11’3” and sleek styling make the 330SY the perfect marriage of sport and style. Optional engine choices range from twin diesel 260 hp engines to twin gas 320 hp packages.

Monterey has engineered numerous unique features into this new model. The 330SY has transverse fuel tanks on center, each 105 gallons, which allows not only for a wider mid berth that can stretch from port to starboard without the hindrance of perpendicular fuel cells, but also keeping the fuel on center allows for improved handling and performance. The cabinets down below do not span all the way to the ceiling, but instead leave a few inches of room that allows the a/c vents to be completely hidden, while the return air duct is hidden under the cushioned v-berth bolster for added quiet. A flush, balanced trim runs along the top of the cabinets to add to the sleek line of the interior. Balanced use of space on the 330SY has allowed for dedicated storage compartments for everything on board, and all of the storage compartments are completely finished on the inside. Other advances include Nidacore hull sides, and an oversized bilge area that is automated and tremendously service-friendly. A person can actually stand in the bilge area and have everything within reach.

The 330SY’s oversized cockpit area features an aft U-lounge with fiberglass bases, sun island feature and storage below; a built-in chaise lounge with a contoured backrest; and dual helm/companion seating with both flip-up thigh rises and fold-down arm rests, with storage compartment underneath. The smartly-designed layout makes for easy maneuverability yet still provides an entertainment center consisting of a wet bar, a covered sink with faucet, built-in beverage coolers and a number of cup holders.

The ergonomically-designed command center of the 330SY houses a full instrumentation of navigational aids including a digital speedometer, depth/seawater temperature gauge, compass and tachometers. All of the gauges are fog-resistant and offer low-glare night lighting while the switches are waterproof and backlit. The power-assisted tilt steering wheel is black with a silver insert, and looks sharp against the contrast of the gel coated grey dash. Two 12-volt receptacles are also available for personal electronic use. All electronic connections on the 330SY are waterproofed by Deutsch. What you won’t find in the cockpit area is a breaker panel for the battery switches. This is because Monterey has engineered remote electrical battery switches, housed in the cabin’s distribution panel for added convenience.

The 330SY incorporates a luxurious interior layout that combines comfort, convenience and class. Cherry-wood mica cabinetry coupled with trim and Kardon solid surface countertops adorn an attractive full-service galley that features a stainless steel refrigerator, dual burner electric stove, microwave, stainless steel sink and even a storable coffee maker. Passengers will enjoy the immense volume available down below due to the vast, wide open layout, complete with 6’8” of spacious headroom down below, and 6’3” of stand-up room in the head, which also houses mirrored vanity storage, a Kardon solid surface vanity top and a Vacuflush head with holding tank and dockside pumpout.

The salon/dinette features a solid wood table with dedicated storage and a roomy sofa with an easy sleeper conversion. And for overnighting, the 330SY offers additional sleeping accommodations such as the mid cabin L-shaped seating arrangement that converts to a berth, a spacious island V-berth complete with storage below. A standard 26” flat screen LCD TV, DVD player and TV/telephone inlet with an arch mounted antenna will make spending time below a necessity.
