The Celestial 48 is good light wind performer and is surprisingly agile for a center cockpit cruiser with a displacement of 27,000 lbs. Because the jib sheets are led to tracks on the caprail, sheeting angles aren’t particularly tight so the boat will point to about 45 degrees, much higher than that and she will stall, especially if pushing into head seas. With all canvas up the boat will do 6 to 7 knots on a close reach and 8 knots and higher on a beam or broad reach in about 15 knots of true wind. Although she needs to be reefed early, in light wind, she moves like a luxury car and will scoot along at 5 knots even in only 8 to 10 knots of breeze.


Comfortable living space on decks and below – lots of berths, lots of shade, 2 shower/toilets. Safe cruising, shallow draft, easily handled by 2 people, (1 with autopilot), high freeboard, shallow draft, strong construction. Good performance (for a cruising boat). Powerful sails, reliable engine, 6+ knots in most wind conditions.

Works Done:

  • The mainsheet winch is now used to sheet the self tacking staysail. Boom is longer on the sloop/cutter version so the mainsheet track is behind the helm.
  • Teak decks are long gone. The decks are reinforced with fiberglass and painted with non skid.
  • Original furniture completely removed and interior rebuilt. Left the parts which still apply after the rebuild.
  • Sloop rigged with a big overlapping genoa (as seen in the picture) but with new headsails on order giving the option of rigging as a cutter.
  • 2014 – 2015 Interior rebuilt
  • 2014 Yanmar 4JH4-TE professionally installed. Currently shows 760hours of use
  • 2015 painted above and below waterline and relaunched
  • 2018 Rudder skeg stiffened, cutlass bearing replaced, repainted hull and below waterline
  • 2020 2 small rear cabins converted to large owners stateroom. Batteries renewed.
