performance meets comfort

Presenting the NEW flagship for CR Yachts CR 490 DS is the largest in the deck saloon series. The modern design provides a spacious cockpit with twin wheel steering and the mainsheet track is mounted on the coachroof enabling a crew to freely and safely move around.

This performance cruiser not only offers superb sailing capabilities but a voluminous and comfortable living space thanks to the deck saloon. The double-glazed windows in the raised saloon area offer approximately 240° views and therefore the option for below deck sailing. There are several layouts to choose from and as one would expect from CR Yachts, the freedom to add your own customisations.
