48′ Sea Ray 480 Motoryacht Model

The Sea Ray 480 is a throwback to the era of the classic flushdeck motor yachts that dominated the market during the 1970s and early 1980s. (Flush-deck yachts are distinguished by having the primary helm and aft deck on the same level.) Practical in design and more sociable than flybridge yachts, the 480 allows owner and guests to enjoy the ride together in the comfort and security of the protected aft deck. Below decks, the comfortable interior of the Sea Ray 480 is roomy and luxurious. A long, U-shaped Ultraleather lounge dominates the salon with its recessed lighting, elliptical windows, and built-in entertainment center. Both the galley and dinette are open to the salon, and there are two staterooms forward, one with a double berth and the other, stretching beneath the salon sole, with twins. Note that a washer/dryer combo is fitted in a utility space under the galley stairs. Wing doors, a stylish and functional hardtop, and an aft deck wet bar were standard. On the downside, the engine room, accessed via a hatch in the salon sole, is a tight fit. Twin 535hp Cummins diesels cruise the Sea Ray 480 in the low 20s (27–28 knots top), and 640hp Cats cruise in the mid 20s (about 30 knots top).

48′ Sea Ray 480 Sedan Bridge Model

Sea Ray got it right with the 480 Sedan Bridge, one of the bestlooking sedan cruisers of her era. Built on a fully cored hull with prop pockets to reduce the shaft angles, the 480 boasts a surprisingly large interior for a boat this size. Step through the sliding glass doors to a spacious salon with its electrically convertible sofa, dinette, and built-in entertainment center. Opposite, the large galley is designed with an island-style breakfast bar and under-counter refrigeration. There are three staterooms on the lower level including a full-size berth in the portside stateroom, twin bunks (and a washer/dryer combo) in the starboard stateroom, and a spacious master stateroom forward with an entertainment
center. On deck, molded cockpit steps lead up to the bridge where wraparound lounge seating is located forward of an extremely well designed helm console. Additional features include high-gloss interior joinery, an extended swim platform, transom storage, wide side decks, and a fiberglass hardtop. Standard 535hp 6V-92 diesels cruise the 480 Sedan Bridge in the low 20s (27–28 knots top), and optional 660hp Cats cruise in the high 20s and top out at over 30 knots.
