This is your Great Looper and Bahamas Dreamboat! The absolute nicest 490 Pilothouse on the market today, continuously upgraded and loaded with all the bells and whistles you could ever imagine to give you long term cruising ability.


One of the most popular Pilothouse MotorYachts ever built, "Lady Catherine" has been loved and improved during the course of her ownership.  She features the upgraded and desirable 370hp Cummins Diamond Series with the 13.5kW Onan Generator, along with upgraded electronics, watermaker, inverter, A/C, and the list goes on! 

Long considered a classic Northwest design, the Meridian 49 Pilothouse combines all the features a safe, comfortable and handsome blue water cruiser requires.

The spacious bridge is the favorite gathering spot on board, both dockside or underway, while the excellent visibility and control of the pilot house gives year- round comfort for your whole group.

The salon and large galley are conveniently located on the same level and allows the chef to be part of the fun and conversation. Big gunnel- to- overhead windows give fantastic visibility and light.

Forward are 3 staterooms which include one that can provide dressing or sitting space for the master cabin, or convert to a private upper and lower berth guest cabin.

The deep, full width cockpit can be B.B.Q. headquarters or fishing central, or both at the same time! The large transom door allows easy swim-step access to make dock access easier and safer.
