Meridian 580 Pilothouse Profile

The warmth, quality and attention to detail are evident throughout the new Meridian 580. Offering the widest beam in its class, the 580 gives boaters all the space they need to spread out and cruise in style. Dave Taylor, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Meridian Yachts, says, “The new Meridian 580 is a cruising yacht designed for yachting enthusiasts who value extra space and amenities and who like to spend extended periods of time on the water.”

The 580 offers direct, easy access from the pilothouse to the bridge or the side decks, which lead to the foredeck, making line handling or using the anchor windlass convenient. The location of the pilothouse also gives the helmsman an excellent vantage point in all weather. “With the Meridian 580, it’s never lonely in the pilothouse,” Taylor adds. “There’s a small dinette for company to join the captain during long voyages, and you are only a few steps away from access to the deck or the bridge.

Meridian 580 Pilothouse Flybridge

The layout of this yacht makes docking effortless, even with a small crew.” Seating on the bridge includes an L-lounge, along with adjustable/swivel helm and companion seats. Behind the seating is a spot for the dinghy and a davit to launch it to go exploring upon arrival. There is plenty of available storage space on both the bridge and in the pilothouse for binoculars, charts, sunscreen and other boating necessities. The Meridian 580 is ideal for extended cruising and long trips. It sleeps up to eight passengers in its salon and three-stateroom floor plan, accompanied by two heads for added convenience.

Meridian 580 Pilothouse Salon

High-gloss, real cherry wood interior creates a timeless elegance. The salon’s open floor plan includes two incliners and an occasional chair to the left, complemented by an L-shaped lounge on the right, thus offering a wonderful conversation area. Also located in the salon, the home theater center houses a 32-inch Sony TV with DVD, along with a Clarion stereo system that includes a standard three-disk CD changer. Further forward, the U-shaped galley is open to the main salon and it is across from a dedicated dinette with adjustable table. Standard Karadon countertops in the full galley are both striking and durable.

The galley equipment includes a double, stainless-steel sink, four-burner electric cooktop, electric oven, microwave, refrigerator with separate freezer, trash compactor and coffeemaker. There is plenty of storage for pantry items or dishes, including a dedicated spice rack with sliding doors above the stove. A dishwasher is optional on the Meridian 580. Boaters who want to cruise and entertain guests will appreciate that a wet bar with stainless-steel sink, faucet, and bottle or glass stowage is standard in the salon. According to Paul Cherney, vice president of sales for Meridian Yachts, “The dedicated dinette and comfortable seating in the Meridian 580’s salon allows yachting enthusiasts to enjoy panoramic views out of the windows, even when seated.

Meridian 580 Pilothouse Galley

The spacious cabin makes the 580 truly a home away from home.” Further forward and down a circular set of stairs, the master stateroom features a queen-size island berth with innerspring mattress for a great night’s sleep. The forward stateroom features a double island berth, while the mid stateroom includes double bunks. All staterooms offer plenty of storage space, including hanging lockers and drawers. A standard tub/shower in the master head adds to the feeling of home, while the forward head has an enclosed shower. Upholstery and draperies on the 580 are hand-selected, hand-sewn and color coordinated for stylish good looks.

Upholstery fabrics are surface-treated to prevent UV damage and mildew. Salon seating is covered in soft, luxurious Mirage leather. The standard engines on the Meridian 580 are twin 635 Cummins MerCruiser® Diesel inboards, with the option of 660 Cummins MerCruiser® Diesel inboards, standard with an underwater exhaust system that is quiet and environmentally friendly. All Meridian engine beds have transverse crossbeams to add strength and reduce vibration. The structural engine mountings transfer the weight, torque and thrust of the propulsion system to the structural components of the hull.

Meridian 580 Pilothouse VIP Stateroom

A 12kw Onan generator is standard, with an enclosed sound shield to dampen any noise. Standard inverter on the Meridian 580 provides 110-volt AC current from 12-volt service to operate household conveniences without shore or generator power. During the fiberglass construction process, each part is assembled by hand using heavy-grade 24-ounce woven roving, biaxial knit fabric with closed-cell foam coring. Fiberglass is also vacuum bagged into the hull sides for added strength and sound absorption, while being hand-rolled and finished between alternating layers of strand.

Premium quality vinylester resin is used behind the gelcoat to prevent water penetration. This ensures unparalleled strength while providing a mirror-like exterior finish. The deck design is cambered and has molded-in toe rails for added safety and for on-deck water management. Constructed using closed-cell foam coring material with backing plates in high-stress areas, the deck is a strong, lightweight system. Meridian offers an exclusive 10-year structural hull and deck limited warranty, for peace of mind. Unique to the Meridian line is the exclusive D.O.C., or Docking On Command, system.

Meridian 580 Pilothouse Head

Optional on the 580, this easy-to-use, single-control system allows the captain to navigate through the tightest docking conditions. Cherney says, “The 580 is easy to dock and maneuver with this system because of the dual thrusters. At literally the touch of a button, the helmsman can move the yacht in small increments, in any direction, making the Meridian 580 convenient and hassle-free for as few as two people to dock.”
