Features & Highlights

It's hard to believe there is so much to be found in this 48' Ocean motor yacht! HULA GIRL features an open main deck layout with full-width Salon, Galley and Helm. Below are three spacious Staterooms for owners and guests, plus three heads, and easy access to the Engine Room. Add the large Flybridge for entertaining and it's easy to see why the 48' Ocean is such a popular model.

HULA GIRL was repainted with Awlgrip in 2010 and had been kept under cover and in fresh water until January 2014. With only 200 hours (approx) since major overhaul on her engines and new transmissions in 2010, she has been well maintained and is in very good condition for her vintage.

Owner might consider trade of a quality sportfisherman.

A strong candidate for any buyer in the 48' range. Not to be missed!
