The Latest
When we hear the word performance, we’re just like everyone else, and can’t help but think of speed, and S-curves, and hitting high numbers. But when we think of cruising, there are other goals in mind: A comfortable ride. Quiet operation. A good turn of speed, sure, but a speed that gets you where you want to go, not a race to the fuel dock. Instead that speed should help you relax, rather than quicken your pulse. Performance cruising puts all of this together in a comfortable package that you can enjoy as a cruising couple, or with family or friends along for the ride, all on a planning hull that delivers efficiency and the right amount of speed. To take you where you want to go.
Better Hull Design

A hull design can make for a wonderful on-the-water experience, and the running surface created by Michael Peters Yacht Design means Summit Motoryachts manages headseas and following seas with aplomb, and allows for a range of speeds to optimize cruising time.

Cruising Pedigree

The spaces where an owner and guests spend their time while on board can shape the experience, and the combination of a natural flow between inside and outside, sizeable headroom, and pleasant sightlines creates a relaxing environment.

Superior Systems

Summit Motoryachts are fit out to cruise and not spend valuable time in need of service—that’s because the yacht equipment is spec’ed by experts who guide Kadey-Krogen Yachts.

  • “When cruisers first discover Summit Motoryachts, it’s often because they’re looking really hard for a new cruising boat that has the key points they care about. They want to be comfortable at sea, to be sure, and our boats deliver with an excellent ride. But comfort for these experienced cruisers also means superior construction, engineering that makes sense, and equipment that is proven to stand up. There’s no denying our hull designs are second to none when it comes to combining speed, a comfortable ride, and safety in a wide range of conditions. When they discover Summit, and our connection to an established, trusted builder like Kadey-Krogen, they know what they’re getting, and you see it in their eyes, their search is complete.”
