The 490 Pilothouse model is Meridians’ most popular pilothouse to date!! The 490 Pilothouse offers three Staterooms plus two full Heads, a large well thought out Salon, Galley and Entertainment Center on the main deck level surrounded by large windows. The Pilothouse offers comfortable piloting in any weather condition along with seating for Guests, the upper Flybridge seats a large group in comfort, the Flybridge helm is fully outfitted to cruise in comfort and security. The self-bailing Cockpit with large transom door allows for lounging or fishing with easy hose-down clean up.

Entering the Salon from the large aft Cockpit, Owners and Guests will immediately notice the elegant high gloss cherry featured throughout the interior. The large L-Shaped sofa on the starboard side provides generous seating as well as folds out into a bed for overnight Guests. Opposite it is a really comfortable reclining lounge chair. The large flat screen TV is visible by both areas. The U-Shaped Galley takes up the port forward section of the Salon. The Galley has household appliances, solid surface countertops, two SS sinks, and is complemented by teak and holly flooring. Moving forward and down into the Main Companionway, the VIP stateroom is located on the port side in the midship portion of the vessel. The VIP consists of a longitudinally arranged double berth, nightstand, overhead lighting, under-berth storage, cedar lined hanging locker and porthole windows, providing plenty of natural sunlight. Directly adjacent to the VIP Stateroom is the Guest/Day Head with enclosed Stall Shower. Forward of the VIP Stateroom is the Master Stateroom with a Queen sized Island Berth. It features an En-Suite Head and stall Shower/Bath Tub, full sized hanging locker and ample drawer storage. The third Stateroom, which can be accessed from the Master Stateroom or the centerline passageway, has a settee with hinged upper and lower berths, allowing it to double as a dressing room. It has a large closet with lots of drawer storage. Back to the Salon, the raised Pilothouse is up and forward. Visibility from the Helm Chair is excellent, and access to the foredeck is made easy by doors located on both sides of this wheelhouse. Aft to port is L-Shaped lounge seating with a folding cherry table, allowing Guests to enjoy the view of the surrounding environment in total A/C or heated comfort out of inclement weather.

From the Pilothouse up four inside stairs is passage to the upper Helm/Flybridge through a dog-down Lexan door. The Flybridge is covered by a bimini top on a SS frame enclosed on all four sides with opening Eisenglass. The Captain is treated to a comfortable adjustable helm chair with a full complement of Controls and Navigation equipment. There is a huge L-Settee to port easily seating 4-5 with a long straight Settee on the starboard seating another 3-4. Aft of the enclosure is the Tender electric crane and built-in chocks to store your tender on the hardtop.
