Owner comments: 

The A48 is a terrific blue water boat.  She is nimble, fast, solid and seaworthy.  She weighs approx 34000 lbs, and has a 6’-9 inch draft.  The ketch configuration is easy to balance.  Out of the water, the boat is a true beauty.  The keel has an airfoil shape, but no-one would ever consider this a fin keel given the 12,000 lbs of lead in her and the fact that the keel is over 12 feet long.  The rudder is also airfoil shaped and perfectly balanced on a skeg.  These boats were built to Lloyds of London credited standards. She can turn circles in 1 1/2 boat lengths and is easy to manage.  See Utube video sailing 9 1/2 knots wing on wing.
