48 Super Sport
Length w/ Pulpit:
Last in a series of 48-foot convertibles from Ocean Yachts, the most recent 48 Super Sport has a wider beam than her predecessors with a more rakish profile (the house is carried farther forward on the deck), greater bow flare, and a deeper forefoot for an improved head-sea ride. Like all Ocean designs, her low-deadrise, tapered hull is quick to accelerate and fast across the waterperformance characteristics common to most Jersey-style fishing boats over the years. A pair of galley-up floorplans are offered in the Ocean 48, one with three staterooms and the other with two. Both layouts have walkaround queen berths in the master stateroom, and both have two heads with separate stall showers. The cockpit comes fully equipped with a bait prep station, freezer, engine controls, transom door, teak covering boards, and an in-deck fish box. Additional features include cockpit engine room access, wide side decks, and a spacious, well-arranged flybridge. Among several engine choices, early models with 535hp 6V-92s cruise at 24 knots (about 28 knots top), and later models with 660hp Cats (or 680hp MANs) cruise at 28 knots (30+ knots top).
