48' Offshore Yachts 1987 POINT OF VIEW


For 18 Years, POINT OF VIEW has been loved, pampered, and enjoyed by a very knowledgeable engineer owner and his family.  She has cruised extensively over the past 18 years throughout the Bahamas and the East Coast of the United States. Under her present owner’s care, she has provided a very safe, seagoing platform with all the comforts of home.

Her condition, from custom hard top down to her immaculate bilges, defies her chronological age. Her gel coat gleams like a new paint job and the annual yard visit was completed in the middle of January 2018. Cosmetically and mechanically she will not disappoint even the most discriminating buyer.  

POINT OF VIEW is a well designed, versatile yacht perfect for afternoon gunk holing, landing the big one or extended cruising.  She is truly turn key and ready for her next adventure.

The Offshore 48 Yachtfisher possesses a solid hand-laminated fiberglass hull with epoxy barrier coat .Point of View’s design features a generous beam and finely veed and deep forefoot that gradually tapers to a 12-degree deadrise at the transom. This design produces a hull that  knifes cleanly through waves and chop throughout the speed range.

Point of View has fresh, two-tone non-skid decks as well as window frames, doors and hatches made of gel coated fiberglass so they won’t corrode like aluminum or deteriorate like wood. Moreover, the cockpit contains a fresh water shower in a molded FRP cabinet .

Below deck, the 48 features quality hand-rubbed, satin finish Burmese teak cabinetry, and teak and holly sole throughout. Point of View has received new teak and holly soles in the past 5 years.The salon, staterooms, heads, and galley are built with the attention to detail that Offshore has been known for since 1948.  The 48 Yachtfisherman was built until 1996, and still remains today as one of the most successful models for Offshore Yachts.

Point of View is ready to continue her journey and to provide another owner and family, years of extraordinary adventures.

A set of French doors from the aft deck provides entry via a companionway that leads to the surprisingly large main salon.  The main salon features matched teak joinery, a new teak & holly sole, panoramic windows and free standing furniture.  There is a convertible love seat to port and 2 comfy, swivel armchairs to starboard with an drink cooler between.  An entertainment center with a Smart TV is aft and a handsome breakfast bar forward overlooks the galley.

Forward, down 4 steps is the fully equipped galley with a convertible dinette to starboard.  

The guest cabin is fully forward with an off-set double berth, ample storage, A/C and great ventilation through a large deck hatch with a night shade and opening portlights.  Just aft is a head w/shower which doubles as the day head.
