Getting the family involved in the overnighting side of boating just became a whole lot easier with the Monterey 296. An entry level family cruiser that will give you a taste of the best of Perth boating.
A well-styled cruiser by the standards of her day, the 296 Cruiser was Monterey's first entry into the highly competitive market for 30-foot sterndrive family weekenders. Originally known as the 286 Cruiser then revamped to the 296 in 1993-94, the cockpit was revised in 1995 when she became the 296 Cruiser. Hull construction is solid fiberglass, and her deep-V bottom provides a stable, comfortable ride in most weather conditions.
The interior of the 296 is arranged in the usual fashion accessed through the Port side companionway door with a port side dinette, Starboard side Galley and Head, with double berths fore and aft with the aft berth doubling as a sizeable lounge for the kids to hang out in. Plenty of storage available and generous head room.
Originally designed with a single helm chair, a double helm seat (with an aft-facing bench seat) became standard in 1995. Wrap around cockpit lounge and Port side chaise lounge gives room for the whole family to relax under the rear canopies. Additional features include a walk-through windshield making access to the bow safe and secure, a wide extended swim platform with fender racks, a targa arch supporting the canopies and a molded bow platform securing the anchor. Its a lot of boat for the money.
Powered by a pair of Volvo stern drives serviced in the third quarter of 2021 she is ready for summer. Antifouled in the last quarter of 2020 there is no need to lift the boat for the next 12 months.
Looking good for a boat at 25 plus years of age.
