About this Beneteau Oceanis 48


Horizon Yacht Sales is pleased to present this well-equipped 2014 Beneteau Oceanis 48 ‘Bear Away.’

Beneteau’s vision for the Oceanis 48 was to craft a monohull that excelled in functionality, stability, and performance. Beneteau achieved this by strategically placing the mast in the hull’s center to optimize the larger, balanced sail area and incorporating a mainsheet arch to expand the cockpit space and framework for a larger dodger and bimini. These innovative features have set the Beneteau Oceanis 48 apart from its competitors and catapulted it to the forefront of its class, making it a highly sought-after yacht.

The Beneteau Oceanis 48 boasts a generously sized cockpit with twin helms that comfortably accommodates up to 8 people for alfresco dining with ample space to spare. A massive electric drop-down platform on the stern extends your outdoor living area by an additional four feet. The two Harken 60 two-speed jib winches are an arm’s length away from the helm positions, and a Harken 46 electric winch takes care of the heavy load lines, making this yacht a breeze to sail shorthanded.

Descending below, the 45-degree companionway steps seamlessly connect the cockpit area with the expansive interior. Bear Away is a three-cabin, two-head arrangement, making this yacht an ideal liveaboard. The vast salon is lavishly appointed with a large settee/dining table to starboard and a very well-designed settee with a sliding modular table to port, which could be adjusted to serve as a work area or a little nook for breakfast or entertaining. Heading forward in the spacious owner’s cabin, you will find an enormous shower separate from the enclosed head to the port side. The queen-sized bed with side entryway provides convenient access to the bed and plenty of storage throughout.

The current second owners of Bear Away have gone above and beyond to maintain this yacht, which was previously kept on a freshwater lake for half its life and is a testament to its condition. Bear Away has a multitude of upgrades: a custom bimini frame with full enclosure, integrated solar panels, an outboard hoist, dinghy davits, an articulating BBQ mount, a water maker, and many other features to help you get blue water cruising.

Don’t miss out on owning this well-looked-after 2014 Beneteau Oceanis 48, which is most likely the nicest one currently on the market!
