Vessel Walkthrough

From the bridge deck to the engine room, she has every space that is important for cruising and living aboard. Her flybridge is shaded and has all the electronics necessary to pilot the boat all day from up top. The dinghy is easily accessed and deployed from the bridge deck. The raised bow gives the 48 LRC its distinctive shippy appearance and tames head seas. The side decks are generous in proportion, the foredeck has molded seating and two storage lockers, the shaded cockpit is large enough for chairs and a table plus storage and engine room access.

The pilothouse is the heart of the boat where much time is spent by captain and crew. Visibility is A+, ventilation cannot be improved upon, the port and starboard doors provide immediate accessibility to the exterior of the boat. The settee is generous, and the pilot berth is a huge plus not normally found on vessels of this size. There are four A/C’s with reverse cycle heating/cooling units that keep her plenty cool in summer and toasty warm in winter. The salon, master staterooms, V-Berth and pilothouse all have dedicated units. Newer styled digital smx thermostats throughout.
