Garlington’s broad-based experience in custom boat building is clear in this 48’ hull, the second of two 48’s built by Richard Garlington.
Triple planked, cold molded with red mahogany and glassed over on both sides; this hull was designed with comfort and stability in mind. The innovations and craftsmanship surpass many custom boats built today. GRACE has undergone a complete make over, taking 20 years of fishing off, leaving her practically brand new and ready to fish another 20.
If you are looking for that perfect size sportfish with all the conveniences offered today, look no further.
A custom blue and white, soft wood interior compliments the beautifully crafted, irreplaceable satin book matched teak woodwork enriching her elegance. GRACE sleeps 6 in two staterooms and two berths located in the companionway, that also create more seating when the top bunk is dropped. The master is located port side with a queen berth and two full hanging lockers. A tremendous storage locker below the master stores spare parts, etc. The guest stateroom is forward offering criss-cross bunks, a half locker and six drawers for storage.
