Lilly…is an outstanding example of the proven, Chris White Atlantic 48 design. She was built by Southern Cape Yacht Builders in Cape Town, South Africa, with custom features; Epoxy, triaxial glass, and Herex PVC foam core construction; Carbon fiber beams and spars, and custom carbon fiber mast, boom and longeron, all make for a very strong, rigid, and light weight structure and rig. A sailor’s boat, frisky on the wind, very sea-kindly, and exceptionally well-suited for long, offshore voyages. Lilly enjoys the benefits of a proven high-performance design along with many recent additions and upgrades, to her sails and rigging, electrical system, and much more. The result is a very capable and comfortable offshore cruiser with updated systems, sophisticated appointments, and easier operations. She is…

Fresh, long-legged and ready to go and now, available for your inspection and offer to purchase.

An Extensive Re-Fit was started by the previous/original owner in 2019 with New Volvo 40HP Engines (replaced by Volvo under an emissions recall). New Kevlar shrouds were installed, some paint repairs were done and new batteries were installed in 2021. Starting in late 2021, the current owner greatly enhanced the yacht with the purpose of modernizing the proven configuration by replacing any worn equipment with the benefit of newer technologies and functions. The result is a fresh and sporty feeling yacht, with a little more sophisticated and gentle set of demands on the crew.

The New Jib and Forestay are now roller furling, and the starboard cockpit winch was motorized to make furling the jib a push button affair. The main halyard was re-rigged to include a Karver Gaff Lock that provides the release of the head of the New Square-topped Mainsail, allowing the top panel of the main to be stowed down in the stack-pac without having to climb the mast steps.

A New 125-volt Electrical system, from Smart Shore Cord to Mastervolt Inverter/Charger to a network of outlets with GFI protection and USB A&C connections, was installed to provide 60Hz shore power (the Americas) compatibility. Lilly is now a “Dual-Voltage” yacht with shore power compatibility around the world.

You will notice her powerful response…each time the wind stiffens up a bit. She was originally launched in September of 2010 and spent her first decade cruising from South Africa to the Caribbean, then to Australia and the South Pacific, Hawaii, and then to Seattle, WA. She was purchased by her second, and current owner there, and has spent the last two years getting extensive upgrades and enhancements and has cruised Puget Sound, The San Juan Islands, and the US west coast south to Ensenada, Mexico.

A new lifestyle for this owner makes this fresh and long-legged offshore cruiser available, and a unique opportunity to get sailing and cruising right away.
