Great cruiser for Newport or Catalina, Daytrip or longer

Monterey 302 (2002)


  • 32 feet

  • 8 guests

  • 2 cabins

  • 1 heads

  • Bareboat



From boating magazine: The 302 is a spacious express cruiser that offers quality craftsmanship and a long list of standard features. The cockpit has good room for entertaining and when you need the extra room just remove the transom seat. The helm features a wide seat for added comfort and has stylish silver bezels and gauges. Down below there’s a V-berth and a mid-cabin for overnighting and a mid-cabin dinette can easily be converted into a double berth. The galley is fully equipped with refrigerator, two-burner cooktop, microwave, and coffeemaker.
Safe and Sound
Unlike some competitive builders, the Monterey 302 Cruiser offers a handlaid fiberglass hull with generous amounts of foam flotation in the stringer grid, which offers added safety, thermal and acoustic.
Room for the Gang
Stylish and plush cushioned bench seats abound in the 302 Cruiser’s clean and uncluttered cockpit.
Access to the cockpit is easy with the walk-thru windshield and molded steps. The helm offers an extra-wide seat with plenty of room for your favorite first mate, and it also has a flip up option for either sitting up higher or standing. Sitting at the helm of the 302 just feels good, with a very attractively laid out dash and comfortable double bench seat. The silver bezel Faria gauges are tastefully positioned and easy to read. A built in Humminbird depth sounder is also included in the standard package. Hydraulic trim tabs are standard;

The remote stereo control allows complete control of the system from the helm. When you pull up on the latch behind the helm seat, a large storage compartment is revealed, with plenty of room to store your gear and safety equipment. During this action, the helm seat conveniently folds away.

You know you’ll be entertaining friends and family, so the 302 comes with a portside wet bar with plenty of storage. There’s nothing like a cold drink on a hot summer day, and there is a freezer for just that purpose. (It doesn't make ice, but will keep drinks cold.) The transom seat is not only comfortable, but also removable, for when you want to open up the cockpit area to do some serious offshore fishing – further enhancing the versatility of the 302 cruiser.

If you enjoy swimming and water sports, the extended swim platform allows for easier entry, and has its own recessed swim ladder. And when you’re done swimming, you’ll really appreciate the hot or cold shower, which is located on the transom.
I have added a new touch-screen GPS, radar and auto pilot.

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Newport Beach, .

It’s big, bold and very glitzy. Los Angeles is probably one of the world’s most glamorous and crazy cities, making it both enthralling and exhausting. But with the ocean right there on the doorstep, sailing in Los Angeles is a thrilling way to recharge those batteries and enjoy a whole other side to LA LA Land.

Most of our Sailo yacht charters in Los Angeles can be found in Marina del Rey, a mere stones throw from Santa Monica.

This boat rental has to go out of Huntington. It's an easy drive with lots of free parking.

What type of yacht should I charter?

No matter what type of yacht you choose to charter, we know that you will have a fantastic time on the water. If you are more about the journey, and want a relaxing time aboard, then choose from one of the many sailboats on the platform. If you are more about the destination, and going fast, check out the powerboats on Sailo. For an exclusive experience, Sailo recommends chartering a luxurious yacht for the day. Finally, Sailo has access to many event boats as well for group outings from 50 - 1,000 guests. If you are still unsure, then just ask! more...

What should I bring?

Bring yourself, and some comfortable clothes suitable to the season you are going to be out on the water. Please keep in mind that it is often 10 degrees cooler out on the water, so a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea. We also recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses, as well as a swimsuit if appropriate for your charter location. Please coordinate with your captain regarding any food or drinks that you wish to bring aboard. For term-charters, Sailo recommends using soft-sided luggage, and keeping it simple. more...

How long does a rental last?

The basic daily rental is structured as either a quarter-, half-, or full-day. A quarter-day is two hours, a half-day is four hours, and a full-day is eight hours. You can also discuss a custom trip with the boat by contacting the owner through Sailo. Most term charters (weekly rentals) are from Saturday to Saturday. Keep in mind that the boat generally needs to be back at the dock by Friday evening, and you will need to be off the boat on Saturday morning so they can prepare the boat for the next guests. more...
