Deck and hull
The hull laminate is of double-woven Kevlar E-glass and vinylester laid on an aircraft grade balsa core specifically designed for ocean cruisers. The raised deck house gives the vessel an aggressive style while creating an almost panoramic view from inside the boat with plenty of height and lots of light.
Her cockpit is deep and secure for the long ocean passages with double wheels for easy sight lines to the headsails. All lines run aft to the cockpit where she has powered winches for the genoa primaries and the cabin top mounted winches.
Under the starboard cockpit seat is a large access into the mechanical space under the cockpit and aft end of the cockpit. You have access to the generator and main engine transmission here along with the steering quadrant, hydraulic backstay controls, water pumps, autopilot, water heater, transformer, dual racor fuel filter system 110 distribution breakers and plenty of spare and mechanical storage.
The aft end of the cockpit is a walk through for easy dinghy boarding and water access. There are davits integrated into the arch system that holds antennae, radar and the dinghy engine lift.
Forward you have 6 oversize opening deck hatches for light and ventilation through the boat. There are also 9 opening ports to add to the ventilation.
On the forward deck is a large opening deck hatch that gives access to an oversize lcoker for sails, fenders and dock lines. The stainless steel bowsprit fits into the lines nicely with dual rollers for your heavy overnight hook and your lunch hook to be ready to deploy.
The Saga 48 interior has a great layout for a cruising couple that may occasionally work on the way. She has two cabins, two heads, a large shower and a navstation that can double as an office work space.
Coming down the companionway to the starboard is the large galley. You have the freezer and fridge on the aft wall, stove dry storage and microwave in front of that and the double deep sinks completing the U shape. Ample storage and well thought out placement makes this a galley for producing meals at sea or anchor.
To port at the foot of the companionway is the aft double stateroom. A large well ventilated stateroom with hanging closet and drawings makes this a comfortable berth for two.
Forward of this you will find the dinette that folds open for 6 or stays small for a cozy couples dinner. The table raises or lowers for adjustable height. You have storage behind the seating and lots of light through hatches and ports.
To starboard of the dinnette is the large chart table/desk with two over stuffed reclining chairs for sitting at. You have all of the ships panels here along with repeat instruments and all systems controls.
Working forward you have a head to port that shares a shower with the forward head. Opposite on the starboard side you have lots of closet space and drawer space for dry goods.
Forward is the vberth with its own head and large island style bed with lots of natural lighting and plenty of storgae in overhead bins and hanging closets.
