The British Virgin Islands are the ideal place to spend your Caribbean sailing vacation. Below decks, you will find 4 double cabins with en suite head and shower, two single pilot berths located midships and two additional crew berths located in the forepeak of each bow. The Salina 48 will sleep a total of 10 guests plus 2 crew and is a wonderful, family sized catamaran.
Building on the success of their wildly popular Bahia 46, the design team of Berret and Racoupeau have seen the light and have added a raised bridge (which seats three people) to this lovely yacht. As a result, visibility on the Salina 48 is superb!
All lines are within reach of the helmsman, making sail trim and handling pretty much effortless. The traveler is mounted on the hard top bimini, keeping the main cockpit area free of any dangerous moving lines where little fingers can be caught.
Those seeking refuge from the Caribbean sun can enjoy the hard top bimini and the shelter it provides over the aft cockpit while sun worshippers of all ages will love the new sundeck adjoining the cockpit and mounted over the water. This is a terrific spot to work on your tan while underway!
Charter the Salina 48 catamaran and enjoy air conditioned comfort in her very spacious main saloon with large dinette, conveniently located directly opposite your fully equipped, L-shaped galley.
