Inside, the Hi-Star 48 has the traditional all-teak interior common to most Asian boats. Where many motor yachts this size have three staterooms, the Hi-Star has a two stateroom floor plan with the galley and dinette down. This is a very wide-open layout with big staterooms and a full-size dinette.  

Outside, the aft deck is large enough for plenty of deck furnishings, and wide side decks provide easy access to the foredeck.  Additional features include a hardtop, molded bow pulpit, aft deck wet bar, and a notably well arranged engine room.

A top of the line Tiawan import with a reputation for durable construction, superb engineering, and a cofortable ride.
