Classic 48 Ocean Super Sport

Summer Games is a very nice two-stateroom example of the Ocean 48 SS. Here is an excerpt from Power and Motor Yacht on the series;

After taking a close look at an Ocean 48 Super Sport, it’s easy to understand why more than 400 were built.

Jack Leek founded Ocean Yachts in 1977. Since then, three generations of Leeks have assembled yachts in the company’s South Jersey plant. The 48 Super Sport is high on the leader board of the success stories produced over three-plus decades. The longevity of her appeal is derived from her one-two punch of sleek looks—both inside and out—and sound performance.

From 1986 through 2003 the 48SS had one makeover and one major redesign. Combined, more than 400 hulls were produced. By numbers alone she makes a presence on the used market, but her popularity goes much deeper than simply volume.

“The original 48 was an adaptation of the popular 46 Super Sport,” says John Leek IV, Ocean’s General Manager. “We learned a lot from those owners. The 46SS offered a two- and three-stateroom layout, and the 48 improved upon that with greater interior volume and a more contemporary style.” 

“When the 48SS was introduced, Ocean was ahead of its time as far as amenities,” continues Leek. “The 48-footer had a custom-boat look and the teak added to the appeal for the hardcore fisherman. The families, spouses in particular, approved of the interior.” 

In 1991 the Super Sport got a makeover adding a more refined look to the house,  newly designed windows, and a half tower. It continued to be powered by 485-horsepower GM 6-71 diesels. Performance with this package produced a mid-20-knot cruise with a 30-knot top end.

“Ocean strived to build yachts that were efficient to run and maintain. Customers could afford to fix anything on a 6-71, we built upscale yachts with an owner/operator mentality,” says Leek, referring the company’s overall mission.
