CELESTIAL 48

Broker's description:

This Celestial 48 for sale in Corfu is a genuine pedigree bluewater cruiser. A lovely looking centre cockpit sloop, her pleasing lines tell all about her offshore performance and she is ready for new owners to continue to cruise in the utmost comfort and safety. Boats of this calibre are rarely produced today and viewing is highly recommended to appreciate fully.

This Celestial 48 is only in her second ownership from new and underwent a major refit when the current owners bought her and has been continually upgraded and maintained since. She is well proven and has cruised extensively having been sailed by her first owners from China to the US West coast then to Alaska across the Pacific to Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand and Australia then across the Indian Ocean through Suez and to the Med. She was sailed back to UK for the refit after which sailed back to the Med and cruised Spain, Corsica, Sardinia, Italy, Croatia, Turkey, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt and Greece.

Stepping on board this offshore cruiser it is apparent she is well set up for livaboard cruising. Her deep centre cockpit gives a feeling of security, wide side decks allow easy access forward and the foredeck is a safe working area. Her encapsulated long lead keel, underwater shape and a beam that is not over stretched all combine to aid the seakindly manner of this offshore cruiser.

Below decks the serious go anyway potential of this very attractive yacht continues with her full sized chart table and navigation area located to port close to the centreline of the boat and the companionway and the practical secure galley is opposite to starboard. A straight settee is forward of this with an “L” shaped settee opposite the saloon table, both working well as sea berths on passage. There is a huge amount of practical stowage throughout as you would expect on a bluewater cruiser of this calibre. The forepeak area houses a guest double cabin and the walkthrough to this has a good sized heads shower compartment and again a huge amount of practical stowage.

Aft of the chart table is a further walkthrough where there is access into the machinery space with good all round access to the engine / generator and boats systems. A pilot berth is also located here which can also be used as a large storage area. The magnificent owner`s cabin is located aft with a centreline double berth and an en-suite heads / shower compartment.

This Celestial 48 must be a top contender if you are in the market for a classic looking bluewater cruising sloop with the performance to match.  A serious deck layout is combined with a beautiful “little ship” interior that is very rarely found on boats built today making this a sought after yacht.
