T he Offshore 48 Yachtfisher (built by Tung Hwa in Taiwan) is a traditional double-cabin design with a trawler-style appearance and a practical cruising layout. Her low-freeboard modified-V hull is cored from the chine up, and her 15-foot, 6-inch beam is about average for a boat this size. Inside, the 48’s two-stateroom, galley-down floorplan was available with or without a salon dinette. A serving counter overlooks the galley, and the wide-open salon seems big for a boat this size. Additional features include a full teak interior, deck doors port and starboard in the salon, and an entryway door from the cockpit to the aft cabin—a convenient feature.
The walkaround side decks are quite wide and protected with raised bulwarks. Although she’s called a Yachtfisher, the cockpit is too small for any serious fishing and is better suited for boarding and swimming. The full-width aft deck overlooks the cockpit, and the flybridge is arranged with the helm forward and lounge seating aft. Among several diesel options, 375hp Cats cruise the Offshore 48 at 16 knots (about 20 knots top), and later models with 435hp Cats cruise at around 18 knots.
A popular boat, over 140 are said t o have been built.
