With its 48,000-pound displacement and a 15-foot, 4-inch beam, the nearly 52-foot-long Uniesse 48 Open is about as seaworthy as they come. American naval architect Fred Hudson leads Uniesse’s design team, and his influence is reflected in the combination of American construction techniques and Italian styling. This unique blend is reflected in how every Uniesse is put together. The 48 Open’s mechanical components are from United States manufacturers the engines to the bilge pumps and the air conditioning to the galley appliances, you don’t have to worry about obtaining parts or service.

The interior cabinetry on the 48 Open is constructed of an African wood called Tanganyika. It is finished in high gloss and has an appearance similar to birch, which helps gives the space a light, open feel. The interior joinerwork is meticulously crafted — and the doors and drawers work as beautifully as they look. The galley is to starboard of the main saloon, which offers a comfortable U-shaped lounge served by an adjustable table.

Luxury Retreat! Three staterooms are provided aboard the 48. The master features a queen-size pedestal berth with three storage drawers at the foot and a compartment under the mattress. To port, there’s a large hanging locker. Tanganyika wood accents extend through the space, reflecting the wash of light coming from the large overhead hatch. The second stateroom is abaft the galley and contains a pair of twin-size berths. The third cabin is opposite it, on the starboard side. Although it only has a single berth, there’s standup headroom in the forward half. Two heads serve the 48 Open.
