1983 Uniflite 48 Convertible

Anacortes, Washington


If you're looking for that one-of-a-kind Sport Fisher that gives you so much more while you're cruising, look no further than this 48' Uniflite!

Here is your opportunity to own a boat that has gone through an extensive refit by a previous owner to create a vessel perfect to cruise the Pacific Northwest in comfort and style.  The attention she brings wherever she goes will certainly be a source of pride for her next owners!

She's a sport fisher that has all the great sea qualities you'd expect, a wide beam and spacious accommodations, and has also been enhanced with features that you'd want for a cruising lifestyle.

A custom built flybridge enclosure will keep you completely protected from the elements, and give you 360 degree views, at a height that is absolutely stunning.  Stabilizers were added to cut down the roll as you punch through heavy seas.  And a substantial bow thruster was installed which makes docking a breeze from the cockpit helm.  

The yacht interior was completely rewired, the cabin sole was replaced with teak and holly, and high-end appliances were installed, including two sub-zero refrigerators, a washer/dryer, and dishwasher.  And to help with these conveniences a generator and watermaker were also added. 

This vessel has so much space to entertain, you'll be amazed at what you can do!  She's in our on-land marina, call us for an appointment to get onboard!

Seller may consider a partial trade with a Class A diesel 30’+ motorhome.
