She is easy to single hand, while being a very comfortable cruiser or even livaboard.
Designed to be a luxurious passage maker with a versatile floor plan for total extended offshore cruising, offering a complete range of live aboard accommodations and outstanding entertainment features. With an overall length of 49’11”, plus 14’5” beam and 6’9” salon headroom, the 49 is a BIG boat with impressive interior volume.

The 49 is an exceptionally comfortable boat both above deck in the cockpit and below in the main salon.
Below deck, accommodations include a spacious forward master stateroom with island berth topped by a comfortable queen-sized inner-spring mattress with two large storage drawers beneath. A built-in padded sitting area and vanity with mirror and lift-up storage drawer, plus two very large cedar-lined hanging lockers, provide comfort and additional storage.
A private split head has a shower stall on one side with head and vanity sink opposite. Ash slats on the hull panels with teak cabinetry throughout impart a feeling of retro-nautical style, and further make the master suite truly luxurious — a very special retreat for the captain and mate.
The voluminous salon has 6’9” headroom and continues the ash slats and teak cabinetry designer look. Everwear® gloss “teak and holly” flooring is a favorite feature for its rich look and low-maintenance care. A flat panel TV w/ DVD/CD combo unit with Bose® 3-2-1 Surround Sound delivers high-quality entertainment.
The U-shaped seating area has storage below and converts to a double berth, with a large solid teak dining table that also has a removable leaf. A full-sized port side settee adds to the comfortable designs found throughout.
Two separate private aft cabins are complete quarters for guests and double as functional space for the 49’s main operation. The larger port side cabin has a wet-locker, along with queen-sized innerspring mattress, built-in night stand, under berth storage, two cedar-lined hanging lockers and a private entry head.
The guest head features a full vanity with Corian® countertops, mirrored storage cabinet and towel storage beneath; shower stall with bi-fold doors, teak seat and sole slats; electric quiet flush head with macerator and 52-gallon holding tank.

Hull and Deck Hardware
A finely tuned foiled rudder helps guide the sleek 49, assisted by a shaft driven Lewmar® Mamba™ gearbox-and-shaft steering linkage system which doesn’t require the maintenance of a cable system.
Dual helm stations with leather covered steering wheels are standard and provide better vision under sail and while docking.
The expansive cockpit is ergonomically designed for comfort and maneuverability, and Flexiteek®, a highly durable material with the look of teak but none of the maintenance concerns, is used on the seating and cockpit sole.
Cavernous stowage is available under the seats and in two transom compartments.
The cockpit finishes off with a polished Corian®-finish cockpit table with dual leaves, stainless grab rails
The forward hull section on the bow is Kevlar®-reinforced for extra strength.
