The award-winning Beneteau Oceanis 48 may ‘only’ be a sailing yacht, but she has the space and sleeping accommodation to match a catamaran. Her wide beam allows for dual helms in the cockpit and ample open-air dining and seating, while a fold-down transom (bathing platform) adds an extra three foot of deck space. Moving inside, the saloon is of elegant and minimalist design with a large galley, dining and lounging area, and plenty of room for the captain to lay out charts. Head height is a very impressive 6ft 5in. This particular Beneteau Oceanis 48 has five double cabins, sharing three bathrooms, all with plenty of storage space. The saloon sofa converts if more beds are required. Fast yet smooth, this sailing yacht offers pure luxury afloat.
