48 Interior Floorplan

The open-concept 48 Cantius invites interaction between the upper salon and lower salon, so everyone stays connected to the experience. The open-concept also brings an incredible amount of natural light and ventilation below deck. The master stateroom with 6’6″ of headroom is aft along with the private master head. The forward stateroom and provides luxurious accommodations for family or guests, with private access to the forward head. And the well-appointed galley provides plenty of workable counter space and numerous cabinets for storage.

The U-shaped transom seating area easily converts into a sun lounge via the hi-low gas-assist teak table. With no canvas to fret over, seating and the table come with convenient all-weather slip-on covers. The back of the transom seating lifts up, offering immense storage. And the standard full-beam swim platform can be easily converted to an optional hi-low lift. Plus, you’ll enjoy both port and starboard entry to the cockpit from wide 15″ side deck landings.

On a gray, overcast day last month while storms were marching through Minnesota and Wisconsin we tested Cruisers Yachts’ new Cantius 48 in Green Bay, an arm of Lake Michigan. It was far too rough to get fair performance numbers and very difficult to even get video steady enough to watch. But what we did get was a good feel for how hull #1 of this new boat handled herself in snotty conditions. In the process we also gained new respect for some of the advantages of Volvo Penta IPS pod drives and what they can do that those little appendages called rudders can not.
