If you are in the market for a Grand Banks Europa you have to take a look at the quality of construction, fit and and finish on this 48 NORSEMAN!

Given Norseman's sea going heritage of building world class cruising sailboats, they have combined traditional styling with modern conveniences and world class construction to provide the perfect yacht for a cruising couple.

From the beautiful and intricate woodwork that adorns the interior, to the incredibly functional layout of the interior cabin space, combined with the cockpit and flybridge and the access for and aft, it is easy to see why this yacht is such a "head turner" when you're cruising.

This 1 owner vessel is lacking in absolutely nothing! The term "open checkbook" owner is often thrown about about to reflect yachts of varying degrees of condition, while the term "Pristine" is truly reserved for the select few vessels that have been maintained with the idea of keeping the yacht in "Like New" condition, no matter what the cost. 

This 48 NORSEMAN definitely deserves the title of PRISTINE!

Just take a look and you will quickly see what I mean!

Interior Accommodations

Main Deck This 2006 Norseman 48 Classic was extensively customized at the factory for improved safety, functionally and styling. Comfortable accommodations with a well thought out layout with a two stateroom and two head arrangement makes “Sarong" the perfect choice for extended cruising for one couple or for local family cruising and weekends aboard.
Drawing from the very successful Norseman sailboat lineage, the 4800 Classic takes cues from her heritage in providing a comfortable and well thought out use of space. Upon entering the aft deck via either port or starboard transom door, a teak deck leading toward the aft salon door immediately greets you. A large bench cockpit seat is located at the transom. Accessing the salon via sliding companionway door, the teak and burl wood joinery adds warmth and rich feel to the expansive and open salon. To port is a dinette and L-shaped settee opposite a settee to starboard. Both settees were widened to provide more comfortable seating and accommodate additional sleeping if required. An abundance of natural light is via large salon windows both port and starboard and large windshield forward. Starboard side decks and bow can be accessed via stainless steel pantograph door at the lower helm. Facing aft of the lower helm is an entertainment center that is perfectly situated with a 32” flat screen television that is visible from both port dinette and starboard settees as well as from the cockpit. A bar is located below the TV and the HD Sirius radio/CD player and Sony BluRay player is below the bar. Large curved burled wood doors conceal all. Down the starboard companionway steps provides access to the living quarters. A 32 bottle refrigerated wine cave is hidden beneath the steps and a large teak and burl wood storage credenza is to stbd. Immediately to port is the large master stateroom featuring in suite head and stall shower with Grohe shower and body sprays. The master stateroom features an island queen berth with custom mattress for added comfort. Raised foredeck provides an abundance of headroom above and allows for an extremely open feel. Forward of the master stateroom is the guest stateroom featuring a large island double and in suite head that can double as a day head. A sink and vanity is located to stbd.

Exterior Decking
