2005 Meridian 490 Pilothouse


The Meridian Yachts 490 Pilothouse yacht is one of the best-selling Meridian models of all time, standing out as an excellent vessel that is meant to convey luxury and style without being unwieldy on the open seas. This versatile yacht comes equipped with a beautiful three-stateroom cherrywood interior that showcases a highly spacious full-beam salon, a large U-shaped galley, two large full heads, a raised pilothouse with convenient 4-step flybridge access. The third stateroom is accessible from the master stateroom, and it comes with hinged lower and upper berths.  It has the range and features for extended cruising and has become a favorite among “loopers” – cruisers of America’s Great Loop.
