The 485, provides enormous living space, enough storage to hold provisions for a circumnavigation, enough sail power to speed you comfortably to your destination, enough engine power to move you along if there is no wind, and the convenience of managing it all from the cockpit.

From the integral bow platform to the spacious stern boarding area, the 485's deck abounds with features owners will appreciate. On deck, you'll find generous open spaces and secure hand holds, hatches and lazarettes that lead to all sorts of storage lockers.  The uncluttered sidedecks with recessed foredeck and cabin top handrails provide for safe footing all around.

The very spacious aft deck and aft deck lounge platform (with 2 bean bag chairs) complement the remainder of the 485's very secure topsides.

Below, you'll be immediately impressed by the panoramic view of the expansive main saloon, the open central area, the huge forward and aft cabins with private heads, the solid teak and oak soles throughout, the gourmet galley, the extra stateroom/office/workshop and a nav station that rivals those on much larger yachts.


Open salon with lots of windows and ventilation.  2 Cabin 2 Head layout with workshop that converts to a double. Massive galley aft to starboard and huge nav station/ communication center.
