2005 SYMBOL 69′ 68 Pilothouse
2005 SYMBOL 68 PILOTHOUSE
Large enough for extended cruising but small enough for a couple to handle without crew. The interior is gorgeous satin cherry wood with granite countertops and neutral carpet & fabrics. The layout features three full cabins with two en-suite heads. A spacious aft deck, fully covered wide side decks, and a comfortable bow sunpad makes this a truly versatile cruiser.
This professionally maintained 68 Pilothouse also features two stairwells to the flybridge, located in the pilothouse and the aft deck. The flybridge is a large covered area with dual helm seats, a dinette and a boat deck for the tender.
