48' Ocean Alexander 48 Sport Sedan

$249,000 | 1994 | Newport Beach, CA


 “Hula II” is the finest example of an Ocean Alexander 480 Sports Sedan on the market today! 

   Her owners have tastefully decorated the interior with a custom built-in sofa, plush carpeting, high-end window coverings, beautiful soft goods, and wallcoverings. Her Salon is wide open, with large windows offering a great 360-degree view of your surroundings. Her galley is up, with ample counters space and nice appliances opposite a wraparound settee that seats 6 comfortably for dining.  Below, you’ll find 3 staterooms and 2 nice sized heads, offering privacy and overnight accommodations for 6.

   Beautiful touches and a great layout extend to the outdoors as well.  Her cockpit is spacious, with a transom door for easy boarding, and bow access is safe thanks to her wide side decks with high stainless steel railings. Access to the flying bridge is a breeze via an easy to navigate staircase, not an upright ladder like so many other yachts of her style. The bridge is huge, with seating for 10+ on a wraparound lounge. The helm is located forward for excellent visibility and has a full complement of Furuno electronics. There are 3 pedestal seats forward, so the captain won’t be far from his or her friends.  There’s also a factory hardtop, with a full Makrolon enclosure for excellent distortion free weather protection. On the bow, there is a large sun pad and a davit for launching and retrieving a tender.

   Offerings like this don’t come about frequently, and we expect that she’ll find a new owner soon. Please contact us today to arrange your private showing. You’ll be glad that you did!
