Popular Cruiser Yachts Over 55 Feet Long Overall

Welcome to this ever-growing gallery of some of the most popular production cruiser yachts of more than 55 feet (16.8m) long overall. 

Large cruiser yachts like these need powerful sail handling systems and a strong crew to operate and maintain them, putting them well out of the reach of all but those with the deepest pockets.

Many of them have to earn their keep as luxury charter boats, particularly in the warm waters of the Caribbean or Mediterranean where they will cater for three or more couples at a time. 

And while such an exclusive holiday may represent good value for such a charter group, it won't be cheap!
