Meet the efficient, comfortable, and capable Crossover Yacht.
Video: Virtual Tour, Innovations, Construction, etc.
The video is a comprehensive introduction to the Crossover. From the motivations for creating a new style of yacht to a virtual tour through the interior, a breakdown of the unique unibody construction, and many more exciting details and insights.
The Crossover was developed in response to the out of control cost of conventional recreational yachts. Luxury yachts used to cost as much as a modest vacation home or a couple of car payments. The Crossover brings those times back.
In designing the Crossover, we threw out many of the preconceived notions from the industry and created something more in line with what people actually want and need from their yacht. The result is something entirely different than the status quo.
The cubic styling of the house allows for a spacious and comfortable one level interior. High ceilings and large windows are unlike any other yacht of similar size. The Crossover is a two stateroom, one head yacht with an emphasis on comfort and usability.
The large U-shaped galley and breakfast bar are open to the salon and feature high ceilings and plentiful natural light.
The full beam master has aft cockpit access and incredible views of passing scenery. The master also has lots of storage, hanging lockers, a vanity and a washer/dryer.
The second stateroom is a convertible room, with bunks that can fold up or down depending on which of the four cabin configurations is desired: stateroom with bunks, sitting room with sofa, walk in closet, or office.
The head features a unique bath tub that is situated under the spacious shower. This makes the head feel open and rich while being very functional at the same time.
The Crossover was designed around a very unique system of unibody construction. When bonded together, the five major fiberglass parts that make up the yacht are incredibly strong. The unibody construction saves materials and makes the boat lighter weight, but more importantly saves thousands of hours in labor over conventional yacht construction.
In other words, we've invested time and energy up front to build complex molds, to dramatically simplify production and offer a more affordable high quality yacht.
Below the waterline, the Crossover's tri-hull shape is extremely efficient and very stable. It takes minimal effort to push, meaning it burns less fuel, increases cruising range, and requires a smaller and less expensive engine.
Above the waterline the bow is high for cruising in rougher water, including protected salt water like the San Juan Islands and Puget Sound.

Last year we built a concept boat called the WaterLoft. The WaterLoft was very well received by the boating community and we decided to make some changes before we went into production. We ended up with something so dramatically different in so many ways that we gave it a new name: the Crossover. Though both vessels share some cubic styling characteristics on top, the Crossover features different propulsion, hull shape, layout, construction, and intended use.
