Manufacturer Provided Description:

While the 490SE Pilothouse features the comforts and standard features that modern cruising boaters have come to expect from Meridian, she also has a seafaring soul. This first-class yacht provides the responsive handling and solid construction that inclement weather requires, and she will deftly manage temperamental waterways, yet she also effortlessly accommodates up to six people in three well-appointed staterooms. Creature comforts include generous salon seating, a full-service galley with teak-and-holly flooring and Karadon custom solid-surface countertops, a master head with bathtub, a guest head with separate enclosed shower and a convertible third stateroom. For the boater who wants comfort in a solid seafaring cruiser, the 490SE is the perfect choice.
