The GUNBOAT 48 was a very successful Gunboat series from 2004-2009. Designed for family sabbatical cruising, the 48 series typically features three queen berths, a convertible office or 4th berth and two heads. The simple and informal accommodations are light and airy. The salon, helm and galley are located on the main deck within the pilothouse. The aft cockpit is well protected and cozy. The overall design premise calls for simplicity for owner-operators, Gunboat performance, and the usual ease of handling. Owners of GUNBOAT 48 love their boats. They only rarely appear in our brokerage listings, and like all Gunboats, have very strong resale values.
