Fjord 48 Open

Fjord, as part of the Hanse group, stands for German quality brand, which designs clever cruisers for all corners of the globe.

The modern Fjord line is characterized by sleek designs, high performances and quality of life aboard. These 36 and 40 ft power day-cruisers can be used as regular yachts, party boats, or tenders for bigger motor yachts. Those types of boats are getting more and more popular, and as a response to client requests for a larger model, Fjord Yachts is now releasing its new development – the NEW Fjord 48 Open, built together with Patrick Banfield Allseas design.

You will love this Open, it is unique and unbelievably well thought-through. An Open yacht is always a custom yacht, which means you get to choose the colors and the furnishings all the way down to the type of cushioning. One thing is clear: you’ll be in possession of something one-of-a-kind.

The concept of the new Fjord 48 Open is based on the following characteristics:

  • Hull with outstanding design beam and high performance hull
  • Higher freeboards provide solid bulwark which enables very safe movement on the side decks
  • The deck layout has been developed for safety reasons for family and friends
  • Sandwich construction hull, topsides with a robust GRP inner grid with up to 3 IPS 600 435 HP each
  • 1 large head for master cabin with separate shower and in front, 1 large head for guest cabin with separate shower also
  • Large powered bathing platform for Tender
  • Longitudinal Tender bay with launching system for jet tender 285 Williams
  • Comfortable cockpit with retractable double tables for sun bathing
  • Volvo Position System
  • Hydraulic Anchor
  • Nice Bimini Solution
  • Water Stream to stay cool by hot conditions

Compared to the Fjord 40 Open, the 48 Open offers more interior space, more sitting area on deck, bigger companionway, more headroom, larger cockpit, more beam, larger galley, more refrigeration. Fjord 48 Open is modern to the extreme, wowing with its bold view of the future.

The Fjord 48 will be launched on the Düsseldorf Boat Show 2014 as a world premiere, and we are very excited about showing it to you then! In the meantime, check out the photos of this new design.
