The 2003 Ocean Alexander 48 Altus accommodates six guests in three staterooms, is owner-operator friendly and is on the market for $349,000.  

“The 48 seemed gifted with an easily driven hull. Given throttle, she rose to a plane with little fuss and reached a maximum speed of 25.4 knots at 3,000 rpm. At 2,700 rpm I recorded a speed of 20.9 knots-a solid cruising speed with a half load of fuel and an owner’s gear on board. I recorded low sound levels and the reading of 80 dB(A) in the salon at 2,700 rpm is worthy of note,” as previously reported in Yachting.
