The V-hull makes the boat extraordinarily stable, protecting it from possible skidding. Particularly strategic is the central position of the mast, which not only gives greater extension to the deckhouse but also ensures a better balance to the boat, making maneuvering easier.

The cockpit, compact and delimited by the stern seat, opens and closes electronically, becoming one with the deck plan and further expandind the outdoor space. Furthermore, the cockpit, just in front of the helm station, accommodates two long and comfortable sofas.


The 45-degree stairway, which leads from theBeneteau Oceanis 48, master cabin cockpit to the lower deck and is one of the main features of all Beneteau yachts, considerably favors the freedom of movement between exterior and interior.

The interior design is very refined and bright thanks to the light wood paneling.

The interiors are very spacious, in particular the lounge that, in addition to accommodating a truly comfortable galley with fridge and cooking table on the port side, also accommodates two sofas, one of which is U-shaped, a dinette and a folding chart table. This convivial area is flooded with an incredible amount of natural light by the well-distributed lateral windows.

The night area consists of a large master cabin, positioned in the bow with en-suite bathroom, and four VIP cabins, each with its own bathroom.

The Oceanis 48 can accommodate up to 12 passengers.
