History of Build

After taking a close look at an Ocean 48 Super Sport, its easy to understand why more than 400 were built. Jack Leek founded Ocean Yachts in 1977. Since then, three generations of Leeks have assembled yachts in the companys South Jersey plant. The 48 Super Sport is high on the leader board of the success stories produced over three-plus decades. The longevity of her appeal is derived from her one-two punch of sleek looksboth inside and outand sound performance. From 1986 through 2003 the 48SS had one makeover and one major redesign. Combined, more than 400 hulls were produced. By numbers alone she makes a presence on the used market, but her popularity goes much deeper than simply volume. The original 48 was an adaptation of the popular 46 Super Sport, says John Leek IV, Oceans General Manager. We learned a lot from those owners. The 46SS offered a two and three stateroom layout, and the 48 improved upon that with greater interior volume and a more contemporary style. Well-known marine architect Dave Martin designed the 48. The original 48SS offered a two or three-stateroom layout. The two-cabin version was a galley-down arrangement. Ocean Yachts strong following consists of both anglers and serious cruisers. Most buyers on both sides of the fence were looking for the third stateroom on a vessel of this size. When the 48SS was introduced, Ocean was ahead of its time as far as amenities, continues Leek. "
The 48-footer had a custom boat look and the Teak added to the appeal for the hardcore fisherman. The families, spouses in particular, approved of the interior.


Owners personal items and all fishing equipment that was not part of the original build.

The Ride

The minimal deadrise design at the transom pops the Super Sport out of the hole with ease. Once at cruise, it’s as efficient as they come. It sits well beam-to and the modified-V takes most seas comfortably. A big head sea will initiate a pull back of the throttles, just the nature of the beast.Broker Comments

CHARIS is everything a pre-owned Sportfish buyer could hope for. Updated with class, the right Color schemes and an interior that would rival any custom build, CHARIS is a must see. With her updated electronics, detailed log books, an engine room that sparkles, one need not look any further for a great turn-key refit boat. This is the boat everyone dreams about when purchasing a pre-owned vessel. Many talk about updating their vessels; this one, nuts to bolts is ready for her new owner.
