FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aviara Boats expands options for luxury day boat owners with today’s announcement of its follow-up model, the AV36, at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Its second model launch within a year, the AV36 is a 36-foot luxury bowrider that takes Aviara’s progressive luxury to a grander scale, elevating owners’ endless days on the water.

“Aviara has quickly matured into a family of boats with the new AV36. We’re not just an entrant in the premium luxury day boat category, we’re a player that is dedicated to the future success of this brand,” said Matt McDevitt, Vice President of Global Sales for MasterCraft Boat Company. “A keen understanding of this consumer allowed our engineers to take essence of our AV32 and enhance the entertainment, comfort and performance features in an even larger vessel.”

Aviara Boats create a flawless open water experience rooted in precision control, guest entertainment and premium, modern comfort for all-day luxury. The AV36’s aesthetic maintains Aviara’s clean, striking shape with an interior that exudes European styling and a more spacious cabin that extends day adventures through the night. The AV36’s open deck layout offers a comfortable seating arrangement with unique transom barstool-style seating and stepped transom aft seating. The AV36 can be optioned with a larger gourmet wet bar to further expand entertaining capabilities along with a second refrigerator and one or two grills.

Enhancements below deck create a guest retreat to escape the elements, or even stay the night with sleeping for two. An optional generator provides heating and air and the AV36 has a separate wet head. Premium Klipsch Audio is standard in the AV36, delivering concert-level sound through full-range speakers, subwoofers, digital amplifiers and a premium Bongiovi digital signal processor with four customizable volume control zones. An Audio+Video package for the cabin is available on the AV36 as well.

The dash components include a 16” Garmin display for charts and navigation, 10.1” boat control and stereo display and a 7” engine display.
