The new Meridian 541 Sedan has one of the most innovate interiors we have seen in a long time. Its designers have put the saloon forward in the house instead of aft like virtually every other sedan on the planet. That design together with using what appears to be real household-type furniture instead of typical built-in settees adds class and elegance to what could have been the old plastic fantastic approach. There are other new twists on this boat as well, such as the twin diesel engines mounted in the stern with Zeus pod drives under the cockpit instead of under the saloon which would be typical in a conventional inboard design. With the engine room in the stern, the staterooms can be moved aft, and this is what allows Meridian to pack so much living space into this hull. Abaft the full-beam master there is even room for a crew cabin or "utility room."
