 Mauna Loa means Long Mountain in Hawaiian and refers to the world's largest volcano. Images of the Pacific Islands automatically come to mind just reading or hearing the name. If this is the cruising you have in mind then this Van de Stadt designed Tasman 48 is for you. This acclaimed pilothouse steel cruiser can go anywhere you desire in comfort and safety.

The construction was completed in 1997 and she had an interior refit in 2002.

Mauna Loa was sailed across the Atlantic after an extended stay in the Mediterrean. She is now cruising the southern Caribbean and is based in Grenada.

She was recently repowered with a Yanmar 160 hp engine that has 400 hours on her.

Mauna Loa has a 3 stateroom/ 2 head interior arrangement accented in naturals woods.

She features a comfortable pilothouse and is fully air conditioned with sleeping accomodations for 6.
