The original owner of BELIEVE chose San Juan Composites to custom build this beautiful power boat after having many custom built sailing yachts, which he sailed and raced very successfully! As an experienced yachtsman, he appreciated the fine attention to detail and quality that San Juan Composites is known for. A very capable cruising vessel, BELIEVE has traveled many miles up and down the East Coast from New England to the Islands, with the owner and his family on-board and at the helm! He reports that she is a great sea boat with efficient performance, and always draws onlookers wherever he stops! A real "Gentleman's Yacht", designed by the renowned naval architect Gregory C. Marshall. BELIEVE features very comfortable seating and lounge space in the cockpit, with a fixed Sunbrella sunshade, and a beautiful laid teak sole. The salon has a large settee with dining table, wet bar, and cocktail prep area with refrigerator and helm station forward to starboard. The cockpit and salon are separated by a clear panel bulkhead and door, and the panels can be removed giving protection to the salon and helm area when needed but allowing these two areas to become one when weather permits. A hydraulically controlled sunroof can retract providing open air cruising at its best! A galley down layout with two staterooms and two private heads with stall showers complete the cabin area. With a cruising speed of 30-knots plus, BELIEVE provides what the designer of this boat called the three fundamental principles of "performance, looks, and standard of finish"! Built in the USA, using American Bureau of Shipping standards as guidelines. Machinery and equipment installed using the standards of the United States of Coast Guard and the American Boat and Yacht Council. Click here to go directly to the San Juan 48 Website
