The A48 can be built on a custom basis. Contact Chris White for more information.

The Atlantic 48 Catamaran incorporates many of the desirable features of the Atlantic 55 into a smaller and more affordable platform. With a more powerful sailplan than some of her sisters, the A48 offers performance to satisfy the most demanding sailor while providing the interior features that make the Atlantic Catamarans so user friendly.

The innovative central cockpit of the Atlantic catamarans allows full visibility while sailing and safe and easy access to all sailing controls.

Ample diesel horsepower is provided by twin Yanmar 40 HP saildrives located in separate engine compartments aft.

Notes from Dale Norley skipper of "Resolute", Atlantic 48™ hull #1, on her delivery sail across the South Atlantic:

"We just put the third reef in the main, reefed jib. Blowing 28 knots. Sailed all day in 20-23 knots close hauled at 10-12 knots comfortably. The boat is sailing like a dream. Hit 15.6 today! It was only blowing 21kts. Waves are around 15 ft. We charged up the batteries for an hour today. We have to remind ourselves to do so because the sailing is so amazing.

My crew is officially converted! You just can't explain to anyone what it is like to sail one of YOUR boats.

Thanks again for the ride." – Dale
