General Details

FULLY REFITTED IN 2007!! Garlington’s broad based experience in custom boat building is clearly evident in this 48’ hull, the second of three 48’s built by Richard Garlington. Triple planked, cold molded with red mahogany and glassed over on both sides. This hull was designed with comfort and stability in mind. The innovations and craftsmanship will surpass many custom boats built today. This exceptional boat has just had a total make over inside and out, taking 20 years of fishing off, leaving her practically brand new and ready to fish another 20. Keeping the traditional basics and replacing all the mechanical with new 2007 machinery. If you are looking for that perfect size boat with all of the conveniences offered today, look no further.

Vewssel Walk Through
Crystal Coast Interiors did a phenomenal job of working with the owner, to create the rich and comfortable feel he was looking for. By using warm earth tones through out, that accent the beautifully crafted satin teak cabinetry, you’ll see the classic beauty and continuity that this owner wanted to accentuate. She sleeps 6 in two staterooms and two berths located in the companionway, that also create more seating when the top bunk is dropped down to make a backrest for the bottom bunk seating. The master is located port side with a queen berth and two full hanging lockers. The guest state is forward in V-berth with two twin berths, half locker and six drawers for storage. The companionway berths located on starboard side with drawers located under bottom berth and half locker. The fully functional galley and salon have new high gloss, Mappa Burl countertops and is equipped with two new large upright Sub Zero refrigerators, new microwave/convection oven, new trash compactor and plenty of storage area located in upper cabinets. The stylish salon has plenty of comfortable seating with an L-shaped settee in soft ultra leather to port and two built in barrel chairs in nova suede. All the seating has easy to access storage, under seat cushions. The custom cabinet between barrel seats hides a new, pop-up 26” LCD TV that integrates into the cabinetry when in the down position. This boat is geared up with fishing equipment including a new Bosh half tower, new 40’ triple spreader Rupp outriggers, new ice chipper, new water maker, redone refrigerated fish box, new navigation and electronics systems, new Bluewater helm and fighting chair, and a new built in tackle center with a new Gaggenau grill. All New Teak covering boards/ combing pads as well as teak decking in fly bridge and cockpit, make for a comfortable fishing adventure. The fact that she has new Awl grip paint, fighting lady yellow hull, bright white topsides, on ALL of her painted surfaces doesn’t hurt the fishing either.
