Buizen 48 Pilothouse "Buizen Jours" UNDER OFFER
As the brochure says, the Buizen 48 (B48) has achieved iconic status as a handmade Australian yacht with true integrity. Each example is built to order by a small family company with a rich heritage for fine craftsmanship. Being a pilothouse saloon yacht, the Buizen 48 allows 180-degree vision. With the cockpit and saloon on one level, the B48 is a truly social boat. Not just a pretty boat, the B48 is an outstanding seaboat, efficient under sail (or motor) and quite capable of crossing oceans in safety and comfort. “BJ” is set up to be handled by a couple with in-mast furling main, furling genoa, powered primary winches, two helm stations and a bow thruster. The big 130hp Cummins diesel has what it takes to power her through the chop at 8 knots. The cockpit is well sheltered by a unique (to this vessel) factory designed and installed hard awning/dodger.
