Ocean 48.8 Catamaran

2005 Ocean 48.8 beautifully presented performance cruising catamaran now for sale.

I myself have personally covered many memorable ocean miles aboard this amazing multihull. She is a joy to sail. Her daily runs were regularly in excess of 200nm. More significant was that she achieved this with only a modest amount of sail deployed.

Songlines is the perfect blend of easy performance with no sacrifice on comfort or security.

The main feature of this design is her superior performance to match or rival the other production models such as Catana and Outremer.

Songlines is the complete package set up for long term liveaboard and Pacific exploring. Nothing needed to do - just go!

She has been maintained to the highest standards by her current owners with over $250,000 having been spent on maintenance & upgrades over the past 5 years including new engines & a recent rerig.

Set up for comfortable safe shorthanding, Songlines is easily sailed by a couple with all sailing operations made from the safety of her fully enclosed cockpit.

This is a proven blue water cruising catamaran and a must to inspect.
