Cruisers Yachts, a division of KCS International, announced the 59 Cantius, which it said sets a benchmark for design within the company.

Cruisers said the 2016 model-year yacht features fresh exterior styling and a contemporary interior. It will be unveiled this summer and available at dealerships in the fall.

“This new yacht is highly anticipated, to say the least,” KCS International director of marketing Matt VanGrunsven said in a statement. “The 59 Cantius appeals to those looking for a larger yacht for long-range cruises. It’s also great for dayboat cruising. Whether island hopping or inviting friends on board, the 59’s primary appeal is entertaining.”

To create the boat, Cruisers said its internal design team collaborated with two design firms. Facheris Designs in Sarasota, Fla., partnered with Cruisers on the exterior. DeBasto Designs in Miami partnered on the interior.

“Overall they both brought a lot to the party,” KCS director of product design and engineering Tony Martens said. “It was exciting and refreshing to have another set of eyes working from a clean sheet of paper. The 59 is the new flagship of the line. It really resets the bar for Cruisers and the Cantius line moving forward.”
