New for 2017: Sliding Glass Sides & Entry Door Versatile Guest Cabin Arrangements

The 50z has become world renowned for its innovative flush, main deck design with side and transom boarding doors making it easy to board and move on one level from aft deck to helm. Under the hard top, the air-conditioned space can be fully opened with roll-up Strataglass, bringing the outside in, just like a summer porch. This creates the most unique entertaining and living space on any luxury motoryacht.

“Like the Upper Deck of a 110 Foot Motoryacht”


New for 2017, they have introduced three new options: (a) sliding safety glass sides, (b) a polished stainless and glass entry door, which slides to port over a fixed glass panel, and (c) an aft starboard side glass panel that magically drops and disappears at the press of a button.

The 50z is fitted with an industry first: three fully-opening electric windshields, which can be set securely at any angle.

The galley is party central, just three steps below in a spacious Great Cabin as a place to keep the chef company when preparing dinner or for early morning coffee with the morning news. A large master cabin is featured forward with ensuite head, glass enclosed shower & seat, two hanging lockers, plenty of drawer, shelf, dry under sole storage, lounge chair and desk.

For sleeping, the Great Cabin becomes a second cabin with ensuite head & shower by closing the intervening passageway door. The L-shaped lounge converts to foot-to-foot twins by just removing backrest cushions… or, with table lowered, a double berth with chairs at either end. A heavy linen Pullman curtain is provided for additional privacy. See the option below for the innovative portable bulkhead system with dual entry head.

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
