"El Jay" is a good example of these quality Australian built family cruisers. With clever use of space and excellent accommodation, the Cruise Craft Executive 800 was voted "Boat Of The Year" when first released, and continues to be held in high regard in the displacement cruiser market. "El Jay" is a 1984 model, powered by a 129 hp Volvo 6 cylinder shaft drive diesel.
The accommodation features a decent double berth plus a single downstairs, and adjacent bathroom with hot shower and marine toilet. Upstairs, the dinette is opposite the galley area and can convert to another berth. The cockpit area is spacious for an 8m boat, and is protected by the full length hard-top and side enclosures. Flybridge has second helm station and plenty of seating.
Inventory includes 200 watt solar charging, Muir electric windlass, Humminbird plotter/sounder, eutectic refrigeration, inflatable tender/outboard, and swim platform with cockpit shower.
