A number of Lightwave 48's have circumnavigated or completed notable long distance liveaboard voyages.

A comfortable and safe yacht, she is spacious down below and the owner's large aft stateroom also has its own companionway giving private deck access. The large centre cockpit is safe and secure and with her manageable sail area and oversized winches she is easy to handle.

Nineteen Oyster Lightwave 48's were launched between 1987 and 1991 and Pacific Pearl is hull number 17.

Just back from taking a very happy family to the Med and the Caribbean, she is now in the Hamble looking for her next owners and another adventure.
