48' KONG & HALVORSEN DAWN 48 (1983) OFF MARKET

When Harvey Halvorsen of the famous firm Kong & Halvorsen brought in designer German Frers to work on a new type of large cruising yacht, he seemed to be asking a lot-for luxury, IOR racing speed and two-person handling. Here are the results, and Halvorsen says "There has never been anything like it before: a sailing vessel combining the comforts and craftsmanship of a luxurious cruising yacht and the high-tech efficiency of a Grand Prix racer." The hull makes few IOR rating compromises and carries the same sail area as its no-frills relations of comparable size. Top speed under either sail or power is guaranteed to be over eight knots. The Dawn 48 powers through the water quicker than any other sailing yacht of her size.

Kong Halvorsen Dawn 48 Sailboat for sale

Handling is arranged so that the skipper can roll up the genoa or shorten it with a Hood sea furl in a recessed drum by the wheel. The self-tailing main, mizzen and genoa sheeting winches are also within easy reach. 

Frers' design allows for living while cruising, thoughtful accommodations such as direct access to the living area from the spacious cockpit, only 4 stairs down fore and aft. Two separate bureaus and hanging lockers, abundant cubby space, and a step-in stall shower make the aft stateroom gracious.

And yet! The Dawn 48 has the soul of a racing yacht. Technological advances in rigging have allowed the architect to plan a layout so efficient that two people can safely handle this yacht under demanding conditions.

To realize this dream, K&H went to a builder whose reputation is founded on vessels of superior quality, workmanship and materials. The Dawn 48 is a yacht of lasting value, character and beauty.
