WHAT WE SAY

An innovative light displacement fast cruising yacht designed by Carl Schumacher, the Lightwave 48 is an attractive centre cockpit coachroof yacht. Her light displacement means that she needs only a modest rig to deliver superb performance, especially offwind. The Lightwave 48 Scarlet Oyster is perhaps the most successful Oyster racer ever built.

Below decks she is a proper cruising yacht, with seamanlike design and spacious comfortable accommodation space. The owner's stateroom aft has its own companionway giving private deck access. Nineteen were launched between 1987 and 1991.
