The Ocean Cat 48.8 was designed by cruisers who continue to blue water cruise. Understanding the needs of the" cruiser", they set out to build a sleek, fast, low-maintenance boat. .. A boat with exceptional water clearance under the bridgedeck and exceptional sailing qualities. Striving to be innovative, while still remaining practical new finish materials were found and creative utilization of space was achieved.

Over $250,000 has been spent over the past 4 years on upgrades and maintenance to Songlines including new engines, steering, autopilot, batteries, electronics, rigging, charging systems, watermaker and more.

Songlines has extended sterns for increased buoyancy and sailing performance. She is easily managed by a shorthanded crew, with all halyards, sheets and reefing lines returning to the completely enclosable cockpit. 200+ nm days whilst on passage are easily achieved. The cockpit is fully weather protected with an extended hardtop and side /back clears. The elevated steering station to port offers excellent all round visibility.

The owners version interior is comfortably laid out and offers privacy for owners and guests with 2 KING SIZE staterooms aft, a quarter berth in the stbd hull
amidships and 2 bathrooms fwd in each hull including a washing machine, and 2 electric toilets.

Ease of maintenance was a priority when constructed and is reflected in the interior design with a high gloss finish on the teak cabinetry, textured paint and epoxy floors.

Watertight bulkheads are situated 1m back from the bow entry and immediately forward of the aft deck lockers.
