1997 Santa Cruz 53′
Manufacturer Provided Description
The Santa Cruz 52 features both speed and luxury. Her well thought-out interior has two large private staterooms each with double berths and a separate stall shower in one of the two heads. The large salon provides dining for seven and includes two roomy pilot berths. There is ample storage throughout the cabins. The teak and holly cabin sole, solid teak trim, and white-accented paneling combine to produce a warm yet light and airy environment. Typical equipment on the first nine Santa Cruz 52’s built include: three burner LPG stove with oven and broiler, 8 cu. ft. refrigerator – freezer, and watermaker. The wiring and plumbing systems are readily accessible, thoughtfully laid-out, and fully marked and identified. The Santa Cruz 52 is designed and engineered to be very strong with specifications well in excess of ABS Standards. Advanced technology has enabled designers and builders to produce yachts which are both strong and light, so it is no longer necessary to equate strength with weight. Every piece of furniture, every panel, every cabinet is fully and carefully bonded to the hull and deck, providing an integrated hull support structure. The forward section of the hull includes a Kevlar collision mat and a watertight bulkhead. Other features add to the safety of the SC52. The IMS Stability Index of 121 degrees indicates that this is a very stable and safe yacht. The large cockpit is secure, with substantial coamings, easy access through the companionway, and the ability to drain very rapidly through the open transom. The SC52 is organized so it can be sailed from the safety of the cockpit.
Ready for Offshore , Bouy, or Point to Point Racing. There is a very competitive So CA class of Santa Cruz 52’s. Large group 52’s heading for PV, MX in March and then Pacific Cup to Hawaii in July. .
The interior is well suited for coastal cruising with rich woods and functional interior layout.
This boat will not disappoint the discriminating Yachtsman or Avid Racer.
