Recess, a distinctive cockpit express cruiser built by Mckinna Yachts, is a head turner on local waterways, but it is offshore where she truly stands above the competition. Her unique design, remarkable balance, and notable response in demanding conditions will leave guests and owners alike with an unwavering experience.

Appropriately named, Recess is just that - she is the perfect place to take a break, whether that be for a weekend or a week. It is the flexibility of this yacht that makes her the perfect family cruiser; with the water level cockpit, you are able to go from trolling for game fish to diving the coral reefs.

Your cockpit storage is abundant for the avid outdoor enthusiasts. Accommodations are pleasantly-appointed in two staterooms, each with ensuite head and full-size shower, an airy salon with a full-sized galley and lower dinette


Boarding Recess is made easy with two entry points on either side, midship, and steps leading into the cockpit. The expansive water-level cockpit is perfect for those afternoons at anchor or trolling for large game fish. The transom door makes it easy to board your tender or go for a swim off of the integrated swim step. 

The cockpit has two large in-deck lockers with removable fish boxes, giving complete access to the lazarette, with plenty of space to access the generator, running gear, fishing equipment, and water toys. Forward, you have a large bench seat with storage lockers beneath, engine room access, and a flush-mounted Isotherm refrigeration and freezer drawers. 

Up the integrated stairs to starboard you walk on to the aft deck, a quaint space perfect for al fresco dining or a morning cup of coffee. Walking into the salon from the aft deck through large sliding glass doors one immediately takes note of McKinna's craftsmanship, elegance and comfort. On the port-side, you have a wet bar and bar stools, with a view that won't disappoint. Continuing forward of the wet bar is the helm station, which is stylish yet practical, with great visibility and a sunroof providing for an abundance of natural light and the ability to take in some fresh air while cruising. Directly to port, you have a helm chair for the co-pilot with a large settee aft and storage beneath. 

As you make your way forward, walk down an airy staircase that leads into the galley and lower salon, complete with a large wrap around settee to starboard that has plenty of storage. On the port side, you have a large flatscreen TV that is directed at the settee, and the well-appointed galley with quality appliances. This space is large enough for the whole family to join in on the culinary fixings. 

Aft of the salon and down a step is the full-beam master suite with an island queen sized bed, and large portholes that let in tons of natural light. A pocket door to port opens up to a large master ensuite shower/tub and head. 

Forward of the salon and galley is the forward VIP suite. It too has a walk around island queen berth. Another pocket door gives you access to the guest/day head that is gracious in size with a full-size shower and head.
