1997 Santa Cruz 52

52 ft
Santa Cruz

Manufacturer Provided Description

The Santa Cruz 52 features both speed and luxury. Her well thought-out interior
has two large private staterooms each with double berths and a separate stall
shower in one of the two heads. The large salon provides dining for seven and
includes two roomy pilot berths. There is ample storage throughout the cabins.
The teak and holly cabin sole, solid teak trim, and white-accented paneling
combine to produce a warm yet light and airy environment. Typical equipment on
the first nine Santa Cruz 52’s built include: three burner LPG stove with oven
and broiler, 8 cu. ft. refrigerator – freezer, and watermaker. The wiring and
plumbing systems are readily accessible, thoughtfully laid-out, and fully marked
and identified. The Santa Cruz 52 is designed and engineered to be very strong
with specifications well in excess of ABS Standards. Advanced technology has
enabled designers and builders to produce yachts which are both strong and
light, so it is no longer necessary to equate strength with weight. Every piece
of furniture, every panel, every cabinet is fully and carefully bonded to the
hull and deck, providing an integrated hull support structure. The forward
section of the hull includes a Kevlar collision mat and a watertight bulkhead.
Other features add to the safety of the SC52. The IMS Stability Index of 121
degrees indicates that this is a very stable and safe yacht. The large cockpit
is secure, with substantial coamings, easy access through the companionway, and
the ability to drain very rapidly through the open transom. The SC52 is
organized so it can be sailed from the safety of the cockpit.
