Interior Layout

The unusually wide 16’ beam allows for a spacious three stateroom floorplan that is comparable to interiors found on a larger yacht. Elegant, yet neutral colored fabrics lend a subtle, tropical, ”Tommy Bahama” feel to the interior design. Cruisair reverse cycle air conditioning and heat units throughout the boat keep you comfortable in all climates.

You enter the salon from the cockpit via a sliding glass door to starboard. As you enter, immediately to starboard is a wet bar with sink. It is conveniently located to entertain guests both in the salon and in the cockpit. An upholstered, barrel-type, swivel chair is just forward of the wet bar.

To port and directly across from the wet bar is a comfortable L-shaped settee with a table that features adjustable height and expandable leaves. The well-equipped galley is just forward of the settee. A low-profile counter separates the galley from the salon, but maintains the open layout and allows the chef to interact with guests.

A small dinette is located to starboard and directly across from the galley, which is convenient for ease of serving. Above the dinette is a built-in entertainment center with Vizio TV and stereo system.

Continuing forward, you descend four steps down to a central hallway. Immediately to starboard, there is the private entry into a guestroom tucked under the salon area with a double berth and built-in storage and locker space.

Directly across the hallway on the port side is the master stateroom with private head. The master features a queen-sized berth, lots of storage cabinets, a Vizio TV and ensuite head with a huge, enclosed shower with bench.

Continuing forward in the hallway, there is a storage cabinet to starboard that houses a stackable washer and dryer. Next, to starboard is one of two entry doors into the guest head. Finally, the hallway ends at the private entry into the VIP guest stateroom. This cabin features a centerline queen berth with lots of built-in storage cabinets, a Vizio TV and a private entrance into the guest head.

Quotes from Revews

"Underway, the 48 rides like most Oceans. The minimal deadrise design at the transom pops the Super Sport out of the hole with ease.Once at cruise it’s as efficient as they come. It sits well beam-to and the modified-V takes most seas comfortably."
