The Cruisers Yachts 560 Express: It’s a cavernous vessel with room for the whole gang, even if your “gang” plays on the Packers’ offensive line. Did we say this boat is huge? One of the widest beams in class at 16’ (4.92 m), and possibly the most spacious bridge/cockpit in class. A pair of Volvo Penta 715-hp diesels will push her over 40 mph, too – fast enough to run down most other yachts in class.

The first boat to carry the Cruisers nameplate hit the water in 1956, but the company is older than that: it started out as Thompson Bros. in 1904, in Peshtigo, WI. The second generation of Thompsons moved to Oconto in the 1950s, and started building outboard-powered lapstrake cabin cruisers. In ’56, the company became Cruisers, Inc.
This was one of the first boats to install the aft rumble seat, something that has since been copied by many builders. There is terrific storage underneath as it opens up with gas-assisted struts. You control the Glendinning cable masters with a switch inside and there's room for good size fenders. The davit makes it easy to handle the tender and it is not often seen on a transom like this.
Like many boat companies back then, Cruisers was sold in the early 70s and wood replaced fiberglass. A Thompson stayed at the helm until 1979, but then the company was sold again and then, yet again. Unlike many old-time companies that went through repeated ownership changes Cruisers survived, and we suspect that was due to its good reputation and a core of middle management and shop floor personnel that were fiercely loyal to the brand and its customers. The 560 is the company’s largest model.
The cockpit includes a C-shaped lounge that seats 6-8 people and a wet bar on an island above the helm seats. An electric sunpad emerges from under the aft seating at the press of a button. Please note that the helm can be accessed from either the port or the starboard side – this is the only express cruiser that we know of on earth where that is possible. All that this cockpit needs is a teak deck.
Aboard the Cruisers 560, you never have to leave the cockpit area to entertain guests. You can easily seat 12 people comfortably and with a lot of stowage underneath they’ll have a place to put their things. A wet bar console includes an electrical outlet for your blender and a freshwater sink. A mini-fridge with icemaker is underneath adjacent to a bottle locker and stowage. Just to starboard is an optional helm A/C unit that is great when the canvas is on. A Clarion CD player is standard.
This is one of the few (if any) express cruisers built anywhere in the world with an aluminum hardtop. Virtually every other express in class has a hardtop made of fiberglass. What’s the difference, you might ask? There are several: a) Aluminum is lighter than fiberglass, so the boat weighs less, goes faster, etc.; b) Because the hardtop is lighter, the supports do not have to be so robust, meaning the dog-bone is narrower, and the forward supports are a small diameter, all of which improves visibility for the skipper; and c) Lighter weight of the hardtop means the boat has a lower CG than it would have with fiberglass which means the vessel won’t be quite so rolly.
Another feature of the hardtop is its acrylic, electric sun window just above the cockpit. Press a button and an abundance of light and fresh sea air will flood the cockpit and the babes can catch the rays while you’re underway.
The ample helm is laid out in a semi-circle; electronic controls are from Volvo. Cruisers Yachts has simplified the instrumentation by grouping all the rocker switches onto one panel. A keyless ignition system adds to this Cruisers’ mystique and keeps your vessel safe. Note the bow and stern thruster control on the far right side of the instrument panel, just above the sticks.
The standard layout combines a sumptuous master stateroom with full standing headroom, the Versailles-sized saloon and a typical forward stateroom with island berth. You can swap the closet for an office; this would be our choice. We’re told that at least one of these boats has been built with a third cabin replacing the huge settee.
