    Overblue Delivers Superyacht Spaces in 48 Feet

    Overblue rethinks luxury with catamarans that can be designed from the inside out. This 48-footer has three different layouts.

    Overblue makes yachts that offer the comforts of a home, full of innovative solutions to the challenges of comfort aboard, and yet cruise on catamaran hulls. The Italian builder has designs from 44 to 68 feet that have customizable interiors, huge amounts of deck space including large flying bridges as big as those found on a megayacht, and yet run on catamaran hulls with twin diesel power.

    A spacious salon with formal dining area and LED lighting has the deck space of a much larger yacht – or that of a small house, or waterfront condo.

    Overblue says the 48 rides on a pair of catamaran hulls that make it an efficient boat under way and a stable platform at anchor or at the dock. The 48-footer can have diesel engines rated for up to 330-hp that give the boat speeds up to 19 knots, according to the builder. The boat is a displacement hull power cat, with 1,239 sq. ft. (115 sq. m) of living space.

    Design and Construction

    The Overblue 48 has an LOA 45’7” and a beam of 17’9”. Because of its design, the structure is supported largely by its rigid outer skin, meaning the onboard space is unencumbered by necessary structural elements. That means the interior can be created to suit the needs of an owner with luxury accommodations, or one with a large family with room for more guests. A charter layout rounds out the options, with three VIP cabins plus a fourth small cabin.

    The owner layout on the Overblue 48 features a two-stateroom, two-head layout.

    The family layout has more room for guests and makes more of a sociable galley.

    The charter layout expands the space of the salon, and divides the large forward area into two roomy staterooms.

    The hull sections are molded from composite and bonded together, allowing flexibility in the length of the finished boat. In fact, the 48’, 52’, and 58’ models all share the same cross-sectional mold with a 17’9” beam.

    Because the accommodations are built on top of the catamaran hulls, the living space is all on one deck. The only stairs on board offer access to the flying bridge from the aft deck.

    The expansive flying bridge adds substantial onboard space and can even offer a PWC deployed with a davit.

    All Overblue models have a molded hydraulic awning over the master suite foredeck balcony, designed to protect the large window forward. This awning drops down and locks in place while underway to protect the forward window in the event of large headseas.

    A roomy bath with a full-size shower with glass door and rain showerhead has a window feels like something one would see on a 150-footer — or a private home.

    The galley on the Overblue 48 has many features that home kitchens offer, such as a large cooktop, and serving counter.

    Overblue will have two yachts on display at the Palm Beach International Boat Show. In addition, the company has a partnership in the works with Freedom Boat Club, which will allow members to charter the boats.
