The Pilot Saloon 48 is true to the Wauquiez signature “deck saloon” concept – a single level saloon with extraordinary panoramic sea views and natural light. Stunning, yet understated waxed teak finishes are used throughout the interior – a dominant and classic feature used in all Wauquiez yachts. The galley is efficiently designed with ample storage and all the comforts necessary to extended journeys. The large aft owner’s cabin is spacious and well-lit, with great storage space and en suite bath with separate shower.
The Pilot Saloon is available in 4 layouts with 2-, 3-, or 4-cabins to suit your cruising style.
