Monk Express LT 57

                                                       …Different For The Right Reasons


West Express Yachts proudly introduces a new concept in fine motor yachts: An innovative design that is lightweight, fast, seaworthy and elegant.


The Express LT (lightweight) 57 is a new breed on the waterfront, a “Boater’s” boat, designed with the power, speed, and maneuverability to take you coastal ocean cruising. Over forty years of experience with lightweight sailboats have proven that low displacement and excellent sea keeping ability are not only compatible, but also complimentary characteristics of yacht design. This experience is the basis for the new LT 57. Designed by Naval Architect Edwin Monk, in Collaboration with Tim Nolan (GRP structural engineering), and Edward Hagemann (fluid dynamics), the LT 57 has been exhaustively tank tested at Vizon Technical Center.


The Express LT 57, with her ample power, efficient cast urethane rudders, and tank tested hull, offers improved fuel economy, enhanced operator control , and reduced motion in her aft pilothouse. The LT 57 cruises over the sea, not through it. You are in command, not the weather!


The LT 57 is a seaworthy and nimble ocean cruiser for those who know the sea, and know their seamanship. With her sleek lines, the LT 57 is the embodiment of elegance. She is a motor yacht that will stand out in a crowd, and turn heads wherever you take her. And she is fitted with an elegant and classic interior that will satisfy any discerning yachtsman or yachtswoman and yet we have kept her light!


If you want a fast, seaworthy, and safe vessel, one that will take you and your crew to sea in comfort, then the LT 57 is the boat for you. The Express LT 57 is outfitted with the best mechanical, electrical, and electronic components on the market. The engines are matched to V-drive ZF gears, allowing them to be located well aft, making the LT 57 an exceptionally quiet cruiser.


The accommodation contains two comfortable staterooms separated by the salon and a well-appointed galley. This affords maximum privacy for you and your guests. She can sleep six in comfort and four in luxury. The large covered aft deck provides a compelling social area, and has easy access to the pilothouse and accommodation.


For you discriminating yachtsman looking for a boat that you can control in every situation the West Express LT 57 is for you. She has features that work at sea, and the style and elegance that you will always be proud to own.
