Cruisers 5370 Express —
Capt. Bill Pike
Crème De La Crème
|The Cruisers 5370 Express sets new standards for performance, engineering, and finish.|
As luck would have it,
test day for the new Cruisers 5370 Express featured the passage of a cold
front over the St. Petersburg Cruisers dealership of Galati Yacht Sales.
With northwest winds blowing a steady 25 mph and gusts honking even harder,
Old Tampa Bay south of Gandy Bridge was a mess. Short, steep, confused
seas were cresting around six feet, with occasional eight-footers rolling
through. And the rain was cold and miserable enough to impart an apocalyptic
feel to the whole gloomy scene.
