1988 Camargue 48 Cockpit Motor Yacht

One of the “Best Values” in the market today. VAR KORALL underwent an extensive refit with her previous Owner which included a custom fiberglass hardtop and Awlgrip paint from top to bottom by the Huckins Yard in Jacksonville, Florida. Powered by twin Cat 3208 TA’s, they look and run great sporting only 1,978 hours at this writing. The interior is classic Philippine mahogany and is arranged with forward and aft staterooms, each with island berths and their own heads with showers. The galley is down from, but open to, the salon. It has all the necessary equipment and is opposite a dinette that very comfortably seats 4 or 5 when required.

Model History:

The 48 Yachtfish was built by Carmargue Company LTD. Kaohsiung, Taiwan for 7 years between 1987 and 1993. She was based on the Camargue 42 Motor Yacht, extended by 6’ to facilitate a cockpit, easier line handling , better performance due to longer waterline and better access to the water for fishing, swimming or boarding from a dinghy. The Camargue 48 Yachtfish is regarded as a well-built, good-looking yacht with above average build quality.


The 48 Yachtfish is a hand laid fiberglass vessel using polyester resin, E-glass fiberglass cloth and matt and coring materials of balsa, plywood, and other hardwoods. The hull bottom is solid fiberglass with balsa cored hull sides above the waterline. The stringer system has a wood core encased in fiberglass. This is laid up while the hull is still in the mold to prevent flexing. The deck is also made of fiberglass with a wood core in high stress areas.

Salon is entered from the aft deck, going down 4 steps. Forward of the salon, and down 3 more steps, is the galley and dinette. The forward windows bring in an abundance of light right over the galley, creating a wide-open feel for the salon and a very high overhead in the galley. Going forward, we find the guest stateroom with private head and shower. Starboard aft of the salon are steps leading down to the Master Stateroom, island berth with private head and shower. A locker hides the washer/dryer. The entire interior is finished in rich Philippine mahogany with a teak and holly sole throughout.


Large windows across the front and both sides bring in plenty of light and the excellent view of your current neighborhood, be it marina or quiet anchorage in the Bahamas. There is an L-Shaped sofa to port with a roll top desk forward that is hiding the lower helm and its controls. All of this is open to the galley/dinette area forward. You will find the ships custom electrical panels on starboard side aft by the steps to the master stateroom.
