The Yamarin 88 Day Cruiser has been designed a pleasant boat to ride in and spend time on. Its open space, the largest of any boat in this size category, serves as a good-sized social area for a larger crowd as well. This space opens up behind the helm, with a comfortably cushioned G-shaped seat for 8–10 people and a large table in the middle. The pantry features a stove and a wash basin, and its handy worktop folds up neatly. The refrigerator is placed below the stove. The drawers situated underneath the co-driver’s seat provide practical storage space for dishes, for example.
A 16-inch Yamarin Q smart display is located conveniently right in front of the helmsman. The Yamarin Q is a multi-functional on-board computer and infotainment system that combines the boat’s instruments, electronic charts, operating manuals and management of many different accessories onto a single touchscreen that is clear to read and easy to use. The various engine data from Yamaha outboards are also seamlessly integrated onto the smart display for easy viewing.
The boat has two cabins, each with its separate entrance. The roomy bow cabin comfortably sleeps two persons and also houses a separate water toilet with good space and a wash basin. The skylights situated on both sides of the deck let plenty of light into the cabin, which is also fitted with two light fixtures. An additional sleeping berth for two persons is located below the open space in the back. This sleeping area is easily accessed by lifting up the hinged section of the open-space seating right behind the helm. The same area also doubles as a handy stowage compartment when not required for sleeping.
The large bathing platform on two levels at the stern ensures easy access and provides space for different activities. The canvas is easy to set up from its designated hinged garage behind the back seat. With the sleeping berth mattress made to fit the bathing platform between the canvas garage and the engine, this platform can be converted into a spacious and comfortable sunbed. Another pleasant sunbed can easily be set up on the bow deck. Also, the open-space seating and table allow conversion for sunbathing.
Yamarin 88 DC Premium
Launched last year as the flagship day cruiser model, the Yamarin 88 DC is available for the 2020 season in a stylish Premium version. Visually, the Premium version stands out from the Standard version with its stainless steel windshield frame and a pair of large 16-inch displays in the driver’s console. The two Yamarin Q smart displays enable the helmsman to view simultaneously a full-scale electronic chart on one screen and just the key engine data, for example, on the other.
The luxury of the Premium version can be seen especially inside the cabin, where the wardrobe, the WC door and doorframe, the shelf behind the bed, the back of the mirrors, and the storage boxes are all wood. The mattresses in the Premium version of the Yamarin 88 DC come standard in sahara brown, and grey mattresses can also be specified.
