2001 Chesapeake 48 Downeast in Essex, Maryland

Stock #121589

This 2001 Chesapeake 48 deadrise boat was built by Chesapeake Boats in Crisfield, Maryland, Powered by twin CAT 3208's producing 435 HP each !

From the www.ChesapeakeBoats.com website

"Prior to Captain John Smith's arrival on the Chesapeake Bay (1607) and continuing on to today, waterman on the Bay apply their boat building heritage and tradition of skilled craftsmanship. From hulls first developed by Native Americans to creating current "state of the art" hulls of fiberglass and high-tech composites - the tradition lives on.

These qualities of craftsmanship and tradition are embodied in every custom-crafted boat built by David Mason and his staff at Chesapeake Boats, Inc., located on the lower Eastern Shore, in Crisfield, Maryland. David Mason will customize the complete design and construction of your boat to your specifications. He will start with the hull, drawing on either a Down East style "Lobster Boat" design well known and highly regarded in New England and the Maine Coast; or, his specialty, a Chesapeake Bay-built design based on the classic Deadrise hull so well known and recognized on the Bay. Both of these designs are based on traditional "workboats" and have evolved to today's crafts which can be adapted for either commercial or personal use.

The Deadrise design was first developed around 1880. David Mason uses the traditional Deltaville Chesapeake Deadrise design that has been the standard, on the Bay, for more than fifty (50) years. The angle of the hull from the keel to the chine is known as the Deadrise. This design provides for a sharp angle at the bow to cut through Bay waters. The angle flattens out as you move aft, towards the stern, to provide added stability while underway or at anchor. The design also allows for a shallow draft, making it ideal for the Chesapeake Bay.

The evolution of today's Bay-built design provides all of the original characteristics, with the added advantages of a greater beam, more flare at the bow, fiberglass construction, diesel power options to fit any situation, the latest in electronics and communication equipment, heat, air conditioning, bow thrusters and custom joinery, plus individual design and interior layout capability to meet your requirements and dreams."

This 2001 Chesapeake 48 would make a fine commercial fishing charter boat, dive boat, or someone interested in a deadrise style boat for personal use.
