1982 Uniflite 48 Yacht Fisherman

Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada

C$99,000

With the combination of an aft stateroom and aft cockpit, two heads and two steering stations this yacht is an ideal live-aboard. She was clearly designed for sport-fishing and would be ideal for cruising, diving and other water sports too.

The owner reports that this yacht was built in North Carolina in a late incarnation of the builder’s history.  Some earlier yachts were molded using fire-retardant resin which caused blistering problems. That reportedly occurred between 1975 and 1977.  So that problem pre-dates this yacht. Otherwise, Uniflite yachts are highly regarded and have worn well.
