Every once in a great while an exceptional yacht comes on the market that is so impressive that it stands heads and shoulders above the competition. HIGH SPIRITS is such a yacht. Once you step aboard her you will see how well she has been cared for and maintained by her very knowledgeable original owners. If you are seriously considering a new boat, you owe it to yourself to explore this fine yacht.

The Offshore 48 Cockpit Motor yacht is known for its roomy two-stateroom layout with galley down design, and spacious salon ideally suited for entertaining. She has a beautiful satin finish Teak interior with lower helm, port and starboard pilothouse doors, master cabin access to cockpit, and great storage throughout. Her exterior has walk-around decks and raised bulwarks that make moving fore and aft easy when aboard. She has hardtops on both the fly bridge and aft sundeck. Her aft cockpit with transom door is spacious and makes fishing and provisioning a pleasure.

Offshore Yachts have long been known for their high quality and having the "softest ride on the water." The hull design features a generous beam and a modified V design to produce a vessel that will get on plane quickly and knife cleanly through waves and chop throughout the speed range.

A long shallow keel, low profile, low center of gravity and substantial displacement result in a gentle easy motion, directional stability and excellent all-around boat handling characteristics in virtually any sea conditions. Offshore Yachts are built with solid hand laid structural fiberglass below the waterline and laminated with end grain Baltek balsa coring above the waterline. An amazingly strong hull-to-deck joint combines with a structural upper rub rail to give the offshore unparalleled strength. Her dependable Caterpillar 420 HP diesel engines are very economical at 9 knots @ 1400 RPM’s and give her the capability of a comfortable 17 knot @ 2400 RPM’s  cruise. So if you’re looking to entertain do extended cruising or live aboard HIGH SPIRITS is the Yacht for you. She is turnkey ready and awaiting the change of command. Do not miss this great opportunity to own this fine yacht. Call today to schedule a showing.
