Monaro Marine Ltd.

The Monaro 298 hard top cruiser complements our existing 21, 24, 255 & 27 models. “Comfortable, quiet and stable in every direction, irrespective of sea conditions”, says Pacific Yachting. The cockpit has evolved from the very popular Monaro 27, creating more space. The raise helm station is noticeably larger with longer windows than those of the 27’. With the addition of an L-shaped dinette and artic bulkhead, this area has now become a very cozy relaxing and observation place. Summer or winter, you can cruise or fish in comfort in the Monaro 298.
