A “REAL” BRIDGE FAIR
The ultimate offshore sailboat, the Pilot Saloon 48 is the epitome of all of the Wauquiez shipyard’s expertise in the design and manufacture of large luxury sailboats. The innovative concept of “Pilot Saloon”, launched by the French shipyard over twenty years ago, continues to attract a large number of boaters looking for a large, versatile sailboat, suitable for all sailing programs and combining thanks to its comfort, light and performance deck lounge.
A POWERFUL AND SECURE HULL
The powerful and versatile hull of this travel sailboat is designed to face the most difficult sailing conditions around the world. With a keel with a bulb of 2.10 meters of the draft and a mast of more than 19.60 meters, the Pilot Saloon 48 is stiff with the canvas and powerful at all paces.
AN OPTIMIZED BRIDGE PLAN
The deckhouse with “taut” lines offers a racy and luxurious style which allows good forward visibility of this boat of excellence. The deck layout is clear thanks to the flush deck hatches and the return of the sheets to the cockpit. The cockpit is designed by our craftsmen to be practical, safe and comfortable: the helm station brings together all the assistance necessary for a cruise with a reduced crew (well-sized winches positioned near the helmsman, optional self-tacking rail). The rear skirt transforms into a swim platform and facilitates access to the annex garage.
