Broker's Comments
Flight was built for her original owner….    The SJ48 combines the lobster boat styling with state of the art design, engineering and composite construction, which has proven to be very popular in their SJ38 model. Working with Gregory C. Marshall Naval Architects, has incorporated the proven hull design from the “38” into the “48” to provide the exceptional performance that has become a SAN JUAN YACHTS trademark.  This hull provides comfort and sea keeping in difficult sea conditions yet allows for higher speed cruising in calm to moderate sea conditions. Not only will this yacht maneuver like a sports car at all speeds to 40 knots, but will also provide a safe, comfortable, dry ride in the no-nonsense environment of any ocean or waterway.   Performance for the SJ48 includes cruise speeds ranging from 15 to 35 knots made possible by its lightweight resin-infused composite structure and twin Series 60 MTU engines rated @ 825 hp each.   All SAN JUAN YACHTS are hand built in the USA using the American Bureau of Shipping Rules as guidelines. Machinery and equipment are installed using the rules and regulations for the United Sates Coast Guard and the American Boat and Yacht Council as guidelines.   “ FLIGHT” must be inspected to be appreciated.  Own a “like new” SJ 48’ immediately for less than a new SJ 48’ or its competition…   Cover of Yachting Magazine – July 2012
