BIC Aluminium is a family owned yacht builder that has been in business for nearly 20 years and that specialises in the build of quality commercial vessels and pleasure yachts of up to 24m in length. The company employs more than 85 skilled workers and engineers and builds aluminium structures for a range of purposes including yachts, leisure, fishing and patrol boats. There are many advantages to an aluminium build over traditional GRP, including strength, longevity, weight and unparalleled sense of security and sailing comfort.
The C48 has been designed as an epically capable and comfortable performance yacht, offering luxurious accommodation for four in two cabins, with the ability to sleep an additional two in the saloon when required.
The saloon includes two comfortable sofas with a standard TV on an electric raise and ergonomic helm position, furnished with the latest marine electronics from Garmin. There is also a co-pilot bench to port.
The hardtop offers all weather protection and commanding views, but can be easily opened up with the standard electric sunroof, together with the patio doors, which open onto the aft deck. The aft deck sofa and table is a great place to relax and socialise and converts to a generous sun pad.
Her walk-around deck layout offers security and ease of mobility to the foredeck, complemented with robust handrails to the hard top and stylish foredeck rails.
The decks are finished in quality teak with grey caulking as standard, including the bathing platform, which can be specified with a hydraulic tender lift.
The Volvo Penta IPS system is the perfect partner for this capable hull form and offers improvements in economy, acceleration and performance over shaft drive alternatives. The IPS system also allows for Joystick docking, which makes handling the C48 in the marina a breeze. She can even be specified with the dynamic positioning system, which automatically holds the yachts position and heading.
The C48 is a great option for those who wish to venture further afield and require a superior level of capability, construction and potential customisation. BIC Aluminum are not a mass production manufacturer, but a quality custom builder willing to work in close co-operation with their clients.
BIC Aluminium also offer an Open version of the C48.
