1998 Ocean Yachts 48 Sportfish “Sherry Ann”

Great boat for a live aboard!

Owner is offering 5K Bonus to Selling Broker

This boat has been maintained and used by a very experienced owner/operator since 2009. A handsome yacht with aggressive lines and a sleek profile, the Ocean 48 Super Sport brought something new to the late 1990s market for big express-type sportfishing boats with her innovative two-stateroom interior. Most boats of this type are bare-knuckle fishing machines whose single-stateroom interiors are designed to accommodate the needs of day boaters. Thus, the genuine cruising capabilities of the 48 Open are unique for a serious express fisherman. Built on the same modified-V hull used for the Ocean 48 Convertible, designer David Martin created the space for the mid cabin stateroom of the 48 Sport Fish by substantially elevating the bridge deck. (Note that there is a single berth as well as a double berth in the aft stateroom.) For fishing, the cockpit is equipped with a transom door, two huge in-deck fish boxes, a rod storage cabinet, tackle center, and a transom baitwell. Additional features include a standup engine room, a centerline helm with elevated seats (for excellent visibility), a full teak interior, and a separate stall shower in the head. Twin 660hp CAT 3196 cruise the 48 Sport Fish at 30 knots (34-35 knots top).
