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.
