Come see the much anticipated sports coupe at Jan. 12-16 show.

OCONTO, Wis. (Jan. 10, 2011) - Cruisers Yachts, one of the world’s premier manufacturer of luxury yachts, will be recognized at the 81st Annual Chicago Boat, RV & Outdoors Show, when their 48 Cantius Sports Coupe will be named “Queen” of the show which takes place Jan. 12-16.

“All of the region’s top boat and RV dealers will be on-hand with their best offerings,” said Keith Ogulnick, show manager. “For those looking to find a taste of luxury, Cruisers Yachts has really stepped it up a notch with the Midwest debut of their 48 Cantius, which is the largest boat at this years’ show.”

One of the key features of the new model is the innovative design that connects the dual salons and offers effortless transition and communication throughout the vessel. The 48 Cantius has been awarded Best Interior by MotorBoating for this forward-thinking concept. Other standard amenities include a walk-thru windshield, dual-entrance cockpit, full-beam master stateroom and Volvo Penta IPS 500 engines.

“Since the 48 Cantius was introduced to the public at the 2010 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, it has been the center of attention,” said Russ Davis, director of marketing at Cruisers Yachts. “We are honored to now present the 48 Cantius as ‘Queen’ of the 2011 Chicago Boat Show. Our engineers held nothing back while designing this model and included standard amenities that you won’t find with our competition.”
