About that styling, the Apreamare 48 is finished with oversize hardware, external teak decking, leather interiors and beautifully crafted high-gloss mahogany throughout. But there’s function behind its beauty. Our test boat is part of the “Americas” series, designed to appeal to the different demands of American boaters. Apreamare ditched the boarding passerelle and expanded the cockpit area. The swim platform has been upgraded to a hydraulic lift capable of holding a PWC or 2,000-pound tender. Belowdecks, a working office replaces the third stateroom. And most important, the engine room is wide open and pristine. The results, inside and out, are exceptional.
