New Model: Intermarine 48 Offshore

Continuing its strategy and investments on the development of new products, Intermarine, the leading shipyard in luxury yachts in Brazil, pre-launches the 48 Offshore at the Sao Paulo Boat Show 2013. The new model marks the return of Intermarine to the fast sport cruiser segment, in which the shipyard participated with many successful models throughout its history. Now Intermarine comes with a new approach to this kind of boat with a perfect mix of nice lines, luxury and speed. With fourteen meters plus in length overall, the new 48 Offshore is certified to carry up to 12 people. It is a sportive yet sophisticated boat. It was developed by Intermarine´s team for the owner who wants a boat for the day use with performance and refinement, but in all this also featuring a nice overnight cabin for two persons. With an aggressive design, the 48 Offshore gets even more luxurious and original with the teak flooring at the bow, surrounding the large windows and hatch that illuminate the interior. The teak is also included on the swim platform and on the steps accessing the sun bed. On the cockpit, the 48 Offshore has seats for four, a folding dining table and a bar. The helm station has double seat. To port, a stair shaped door allows access to the bow area. By sliding the door behind the helm station it is possible to go to the lower deck, where are the salon, cabin and a bathroom. There are two options for the lower deck. One has two sofas on the salon, one on each side. The other has one sofa to port and a galley to starboard with sink, cooktop, refrigerator and storage compartments. The 48 Offshore is powered by twin Volvo 725hp engines and reaches 45 knots of cruise speed and 53 of maximum. For those looking for more top end speed is an option for a more powerful version, powered by twin MAN 800hp which ends wide open throttle up to 56 knots. Like every Intermarine, the new 48 will have superb finishing, with high quality materials and excellent navigability even in the most adverse sea conditions.
